I used to have a high opinion of Amazon, but standards have slipped so low now that it is beyond shocking. When the owner of the company can't be bothered to deal with issues such as paying royalties, you know there is trouble.
After 4 or 5 months of not being paid by Merch by Amazon, and 2 months of non-stop e-mails, I have given up. Jeff Bezos, you must be desperate for the money because you do not pay your contributors. Clearly he needs the money so much more than I do.
I will not be replying to any further comments. You have wasted two months of my time, and even e-mailing Jeff Bezos results in no reply. This serves as a public announcement of how Merch by Amazon treats the people who are making money for them. They should be ashamed, but they are not. It is a sham, and the US government should investigate this scam.
