No payments in a long time. I have several payments pending and no replies to my emails. This sucks!

You can use this link to file a complaint https://webgate.ec.europa.eu/odr/
It is by the European Commission for online disputes

That is just for disputes between businesses and consumers, however. If they really don't pay (and the amount isn't completely ridiculous), you could just have a German attorney send a letter. It wouldn't cost much and (if you can actually get them to pay up) may even legally have to be paid by them.

Let me know if anyone ever has issues with someone in Germany (infringer, agency etc.). I can probably point you in the right direction.

Thank you for your help. Is there something like the Better Business Bureau in Germany? In the US it is easy to file a complaint with them.

There is something called the "Verbaucherzentralen" (Consumer rights associations), but that's difficult, too, as such institutions are also geared towards consumers and not towards people who are trying to make money (like us).

If somebody owes you money here, you usually send a demand letter (can be an email) that clearly states that you are due payment. Then, if the other side doesn't pay up, you have to go to an attorney. Since we are all friends here, I would gladly do it for you -- but I also have an account with them, so I fear I'm not eligible. Other lawyers wont be free, but depending on how much you are owed it shouldn't be expensive either. Read: it's not worth it for 100 Euros, it may be worth it for 1000 Euros.

Thank you, Markvs, for all the good advice. Well, miracles do happen and I got the payment last night, even though Paypal hit me with a 5% charge. So to those who are still waiting for payment keep sending them emails, and you may eventually succeed.

S***... just noticed this thread is about ClipDealer. Had it in my head it was about ClipCanvas for some reason, so my comment applies to them, not ClipDealer. Sorry!

Although I've only had one sale at ClipDealer in the past couple of years. A few more for the year or two before that.

I deleted my portfolio there a year ago, it just wasn't selling. Took me a few weeks and a number of mails to get them to close up and pay out what they owed me..
