Here is a link to our self-help guide for resolving email delivery issues.


We do not guarantee email delivery, but that doesn’t mean you’re not on our mailing list. Our mailing lists are pulled directly from our list of subscribers in our orders list every week. If you placed an order, you are on our weekly list and we ARE trying to get you your reports!

4 Find the receipt for your order?

Check your credit card or PayPal account you used. Verify that you were charged something from SCRATCHSMARTER, LLC

Can you get to your report in the member’s area?




NO? Go to Step 6

Your email address is correct in our system and YOU ARE on our weekly mail list, BUT your email provider is blocking our emails to you.


Some email providers have very strong filtering rules for bulk emails. All or our weekly reports are sent through a BULK mailing program.


We are just being blocked – and not even getting to your junk mail folder.



You have three options:


1)      Just use our Members page.! BOOKMARK your reports page in your browser and come back to that page every week. This is your best option because our reports are automatically posted there every Friday by 12:00 noon EST, a lot earlier than when our emails go out!


2)      Contact your email provider help desk and tell them you’re not getting a report you paid for.


Ask them to white-list so you get your email.



3)      If options 1&2 don’t work, and you REALLY HAVE to have your report emailed to you, then create a free account on   Next, create a new user account on with your new email address. Then, email and request that we move your subscription from your old address to the new address.

PLEASE PROVIDE YOUR ORDER NUMBER IN THE EMAIL so we can verify it’s you requesting the change.


6 Email with your ORDER NUMBER, ORDER DATE and your FULL NAME ScratchSmarter has to fix your account! You ordered a report from us and we WANT to deliver it to you, but once in a while customers accidentally mistype their email address when ordering.


WE CAN FIX IT!   But, we cannot find your order by your email address because it is not correct in our system.


Please email us your order number, order date, and your full name to help us find your order in the system.
