For voice talent who use our safe payment service, SurePay, you'll be getting your payments even faster! We're now making payment to talent on a weekly basis.
Voices.com's Finance Manager, Kevin Ronson, has prepared an excellent article that explains how this works and what you can do to get your payments even faster in today's VOX Daily.
Starting May 1st we are implementing a change to the SurePay payout schedule. Talent have been asking us if we can speed up the payment time and we have listened. Starting May 1st funds released between Saturday and Friday will be paid out the following Friday.
This change will significantly speed up payouts dropping the average period from when the payment is released by the client to when it is paid to the talent from twenty-five days to only ten days. Under the new system you will never have to wait longer than thirteen days and may receive you payment in as fast as seven.
So what's happening up until May 1st? The current payout schedule will remain in effect. Any funds released between April 1st and April 14th will be paid out on May 1st. Funds released between April 15th and April 30th would normally have been paid out on May 15th, but we are going to speed that up and payout those funds on May 11th. Funds released from May 1st to May 4th will also be paid out on May 11th under the new payout schedule. Going forward the new schedule will be in full effect.
If you are a talent and want to ensure you receive your payment as fast as possible then be sure to select PayPal as your preferred payout preference. When you receive funds via PayPal you don't have to wait for a check to arrive, there is no risk of the check being lost in the mail, and you pay no PayPal fees to receive your payment.
To receive future payments via PayPal and enjoy all the above benefits simply change your payout preference on your profile or contact us by phone 1-888-359-3472 or e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) and we will make the change for you.
We are excited to announce this new faster payout schedule and are continually looking for ways to improve Voices.com for everyone.
