When you click Hire you are prompted to make a deposit. The deposit is the full amount and it will be held in our secure SurePay™ system until the work has been completed. 

Immediately after making a deposit, you will be prompted to complete the Job Agreement. The work cannot be started by the talent until this step is complete.

If you have navigated away from the site without completing your Agreement you can quickly return to it by clicking Payments > Held in SurePay, and then Requires Agreement.

As soon your Agreement has been submitted, the talent you are working with is notified that a deposit has been made and is invited to accept your Agreement and start recording your project. 

Your deposit is held by Voices. Payment can be issued to voice talent by clicking "Release Funds" on the platform otherwise payment will be automatically released 14 days after the delivery date (i.e. Project Deadline) set in the agreement.

Usage in the voice over industry defines how the voice will be used. It is usually found in the job posting or agreement that limits the scope for how the creative is to be used and impacts the project budget. Usage is limited by media (radio, TV or online advertising campaign), duration (length of the campaign), or geography (size of campaign typically local, regional, national or global).

For more information about usage, refer to this FAQ.

Voices offers a range of payment options. The most commonly used are credit cards and PayPal. 

For Plus and Enterprise clients, invoicing with 30-day terms is also available. Should you require more complex payment methods, we recommend you contact our Managed Services team who can handle all your complex billing needs.

Voices’ main priority is shared success between clients and talent, but it is also a business and as such, requires a revenue generating structure. 

In the spirit of shared success, when you succeed, we succeed. Our main revenue generator is the small portion of each completed job that goes toward Voices. 

We also earn an income off of the paid accounts from talent and clients. 

This helps us to stay in business to provide you with the best online voice marketplace possible. If you have any questions about the business or are interested in a career with Voices, we encourage you to contact us.
