I hope people realize that any buying group or anyone else that gets merchandise in advance of payment can go south at any time. That's even if you get a check at the time of delivery.
X-posting as I don't want anyone to say that I never put a warning here.

Just got this from MYS, item on amazon says it was delivered on December 28 (pretty much AFTER the crazy BF/CM period)

ďWe unfortunately have not be able to find it by the neighbors either, please reach out to the seller and let them know you have still not received it.Ē

Would amazon let me claim that so long after?

I contacted amazon, they said to call back 3 business days later, I did and they told me that I need to get a police report. I messaged MYS about it on Thursday and didnít get any response, then out of the blue I get a receipt for the items! (The ticket isnít updated and still says active so it doesnít look like itís because of that rather they just randomly found it) only issue is that prices now are lower than a month ago so I got $40 less then what I spent. I emailed them back and hopefully will get it soon

Can you please explain what exactly needs to be processed? A person can only request a check equal to the balance in their account. Isn't the amount being verified as you scan it in? If so, why the need for (sometimes 10 - 15 days) processing of checks if the request could not have exceeded the account balance. Unless the process involves verifying your bank accounts to ensure there is money to pay.

Just like how @tmendy226 had an item scanned in at a price that was too low (which was fixed) if the price drops and they don't update the system before an item gets scanned in they would end up overpaying. From what I have been told for every check request they verify that the numbers add up and they are not overpaying on anything. This takes time. When people request a new check for every echo dot that gets scanned in all that are doing is clogging the system and wasting time. If instead people would only request once every week or 2, or get a check for their full balance when dropping off I'm sure things would go faster

If they started paying on time and understood that this business is not meant to be a float of our CCs they would get single check requests.

Maybe part of the business model is to use the float on the cc....
