We have a quite serious client who 6 months agao begin serving up espotting results, after several conversions espotting still have not sent that cheque.

Is our client unique here?

I've had up and down experiences with them. On one account (paid quarterly) they are constantly late with payment and need chasing, however with the other (paid monthly) they have been good so far, paying within 30-40 days of month end.

If you keep at them, they'll pay up eventually, however with all the talk of the FindWhat merger falling apart, I would chase to get that cheque ASAP, just in case.

Registered with overture and espotting on New Year's Eve (as advertiser).

Overture ads running since yesterday. Not even one e-mail from espotting yet.

They are a pain to deal with. We actually have a decent talking relationship, except the delays in payment are getting stupid. Our client has numerous high traffic sites that they wish to use a ppc partner on, espotting have said yes so many times and then done nothing, hence our client is now loading the sites with adsense.

Nice guys though....honest they are great to go out with

Or starting a thread with a heading like this post normally helps as well considering it's the most widely used search engine forum in the world.

And they have a pending merger?

My overture campaign is running for days now, but I haven't heard of espotting yet.

48 hours? LOL.

They just told me that they won't accept my site, too many advertisers already.

Actually I am glad I get my money back.

Prior to the last quarter, Espotting never paid on time. However, we have found that for the last three payments, they have all been on time or early, which is a very welcome improvement. No complaints here at the moment.

After the announcement of "too many advertisers" they were very quick to give my money back.
