Talents commonly get their final payment in a check or through Paypal. Here are some tips to keep in mind:
1. As we are an open marketplace, all the negotiation process will be done between the Talent and the Buyer so please make sure to have a clear negotiation from the very beginning so both parts come to an understanding of the scope of the project, payment, delivery method, and dates.
2. Always watermark your work before sending the final file. You can:
-Say your name at the beginning or at the end of the recording.
-Record only a portion of the script.
-Change a few key words.
-Add a beep.
3. Our suggestion is to negotiate 30% - 50% of the payment when being hired, and the other 70% - 50% when the final file has been delivered.
4. Try using PayPal. You have the option to add a PayPal button to your profile so Buyers can have an easy way to make payments. Some talents require payment up front, others may allow 30 days before receiving payment, so it is important to also set make sure you both agree on the dates.
