I got an email from Zazzle a few weeks ago, claiming it would charge me a fee to keep my account open because I did not post any new contents in 15 (?) months. However, I actually had sales during this period.

I wrote back to various Zazzle email accounts, asking for a termination and payment of the balance which is close to $50. No response. Yesterday I sent the termination request again through their site mail.

Today I received an email from Peter, their support person, which has acknowledged my termination request. But he did not say anything about the money.

I remember when I closed my accounts with other sites, they always paid the remaining balance.

What will happen to my money? (Of course I have emailed Peter and am waiting for his response.)

I did the same thing, and they did pay me the final payment. So hopefully they will send you yours.

Cathy, thanks for sharing your experience. Peter wrote back and said that they would pay, but because the amount is less than $50, they will deduct $2.50 transaction fee. That's fine with me.

Me too, the advise was claim money before closing account. No fee, I used PayPal, but that was a couple years ago. They paid 100% and then closed account. No problems.

Well, Peter did not honor his words.

After one month, I emailed Zazzle support, asking again for payment.

A message from Mateusz of Zazzle Support, said, because I was asking for an early payment, I had to log in to my account and make the request.

I did. My account is blank. Nothing is there.

Is Zazzle honest and honorable?

It's only $46!

AFAIK Zazzle is an honest company. I think you should let support know that you cannot enter your account anymore, I'm sure they'll understand.

M, a Zazzle support person wrote back, saying that I could not log into my account because my browser is not compatible and an update of my browser is needed.

That's likely BS because I was able to log in a month ago. Peter, the first support person had said that I would be paid in the next payment cycle.

It's just a simple last payment. A honest and honorable company will make it simple and easy, would you say?

One of the reasons I quit them was because of the convoluted way they reported sales. These places make it so un-transparent, on purpose. If you made a sale today, you sometimes had to wait a month to see that sale move to the available column. Then you had to wait for their next pay cycle, which invariably was another month away. That was all ok when I was making regular sales, but when sales dried up, it was intolerable.


Browser not compatible?  ::)  Yeah, that sounds like BS.


Hopefully you will be able to get your money.

Wow, today, Zazzle support comes up with a new one!

Kellie (of Zazzle Support) said: "Unfortunately, there is no way (bold added) for us to release payment until you upload an updated W8-BEN form, until then, the funds will remain on your account."

First I don't think my W8-BEN is missing because it was updated at the beginning of each year. Second, without W8-BEN, Zazzle can simply keep the withholding tax and pay me the rest.

Would you still say this company is honest and honorable?

No. Sounds like they are trying to rip you off. Thats a shame.

Another one!!

I received another Zazzle sales email, even though I thought I had deleted my contents, and Peter told me that all my contents were deactivated at least over a month ago!

This shows you how Zazzle is going in circles and finding every excuse not to make the final payment.

Quote:
If you are happy to pay the current tax rate, all you need to do is request payment at the following link:


https://www.zazzle.com/my/earnings/paymentsettings


You have not been paid as you have not reached the default limit of $50 for an auto payout. Please note there will also be a fee for selected the payment option under the threshold of $50.


I hope this resolves your query, if you have any more questions or concerns, please feel free to reply directly to this email and I will be happy to assist you further.


Kind regards,


Let us know how we did.

Based on Kellie's email, it proves that Zazzle has no intention to pay me at all.

I feel that I am so hijacked by this company.
