Late payment?

Question

Have you been paid this month? On 1 May I got the customary message saying a payment was on its way and would arrive within nine days.

So far, it hasn't. I went to my account to confirm that my (American) bank details were correct.

A question posed to member services got a Covid-related form letter response, which is understandable.

If others are having the same problem, I'll leave it alone. If it's just me, I'll try again to reach Alamy to see what the problem is.

no problems here, major american bank, deposited on the 6th.

 

if you bank with a smaller bank, it's possible your funds transfer gets routed through multiple banks, i.e., intermediary banks before it gets to your bank. however, 19 days is a pretty long time and something might be wrong.

Also in the USA and got paid via direct deposit to my bank.  I believe it cleared around the 6th.

Thanks for the reply, Michael. I've received direct deposits at the same bank in the past, also within the first week.

No doubt it's a bad time to be bothering Alamy with such problems, but I'll write to them.

Thanks, sooth. It is a smaller bank, but I've had no problems with Alamy payments in the past.

 

Update: got a reply from Alamy finance.

Apparently it was sent by Alamy on schedule, so it fell through some crack in the banking system and will get sorted eventually.
