I consider myself a pretty good shopper, however, with one company and only this company, they often ask me to resubmit the data I have already given them and four times now, I have not been paid for the job for one reason or another. This has not happened with any other company. Is there a reason that they do this. Why are my reports easy to understand with the others?

It could be that that client requires very detailed reports. Don't give up. If you followed the instructions and did your report in a timely manner you should be paid. Follow up!
