We’re very excited to introduce our payment collaboration terms. To alleviate any concerns about your creators being paid on time, we built this solution to help you maintain and improve relationships on Aspire.
Each time you propose terms to a creator on Aspire, we will run a balance check on your account. You will be permitted to propose terms to a creator if you have a large enough balance on your account to pay the creator for the terms you proposed or if you have a credit card on file that can cover the payment.
What is the minimum balance brands need to have in the account to send terms to creators?
Brands will need to have enough balance to cover:
Amount they are agreeing to pay the creator in the terms + The total outstanding commitments they have with other creators
If the Brand does not have enough to cover both of these amounts, terms will not be allowed to be finalized.
If I have a credit card on my account do I have to add balance to ensure that I can send terms to creators?
You do not! Having a credit card on file ensures that you can propose terms to creators at any time. However, there is a 3% processing fee on creator credit card transactions.
When can brands dispute/cancel auto-payments?
Creator may have posted content live that hadn’t been approved yet
Creator may have posted the wrong content live
Can creators negotiate the payment periods terms?
No, these are set by the brand and are not negotiable. If it does become a factor we expect brands and creators to make adjustments in the amount they agree to, not the payment period itself.
Can I split payments to a creator?
Yes, but put the total spend amount on the collaboration terms. Then each time you want to pay the creator, go to Manage - select the creator and click Send Payment for the correct amount. This can be helpful, for example, with a months-long campaign and you want to pay everyone after each monthly post.
How can I add money to my balance?
Please use this form to request additions to your creator payment account.
*Important Notes: Once you have sent terms to a creator, we will lock in those payment terms. That means if you change from Immediate to Net 30, any existing terms that have already been sent will remain Immediate. Only NEW terms will be set to Net 30.
Be sure to check your balance before so you can successfully agree to terms with a creator. If you don't have enough in your balance, you will not be allowed to finalize terms. So, to move forward on the right foot, you have 2 available options:
