How should I accept client payments?
Getting Paid For Voice Over Work
Getting paid is the single most important aspect of being a freelance voice over professional, so be sure that you take time to do things in a professional manner.
Using Voices's SurePay™ Service
We highly recommend that you direct your clients to hire you through Voices's SurePay™ service.
SurePay™ is easy for clients at the website. They simply need to use the Hire button on your audition response to award you the job. Their payment is accepted by credit card or PayPal, then held in a neutral bank account. Funds are held until the work is complete, uploaded back to Voices and accepted by the client. Once the files are approved and funds are released, your payment is queued up to be issued the next pay period.
Note: Managed Services jobs do not leverage SurePay, nor do they include the 14-day automatic release. Instead, payment will be released to talent when the client releases funds to Voices.
Payments are issued each Friday. Payments released between Saturday to Friday will be issued the following Friday. Ensure you're properly set up with PayPal in your account settings by clicking on the Me avatar at the top-right of the page and selecting Account Settings from the dropdown menu.
