CreativelyPay: a fast way to get paid for creative work

Picture this: you are a freelancer who has successfully completed a project to design a series of digital assets. You’ve spent hours using your creative skills to create mockups and even interactive tutorials. After you submit your work, you wait to be paid. Days turn into weeks and while you wait for your paycheck, your bills keep piling up.

Sounds familiar? Unfortunately, receiving late payments is far too common among creatives and other freelancers. Many freelancers live paycheck to paycheck and spend too much time chasing money owed to them when they could get more gigs. This discourages them from continuing their career and hinders their artistic development.

In the UK, for example, data shows that 41 percent of freelancers are consistently paid late. Problems arising from unpaid invoices get worse without a steady stream of potential customers. All on their own, creatives stand helpless.

This is where Creative comes in handy.

Creatively is a job platform for creatives specifically designed to connect hiring managers with creative talent. Here creative workers can build their professional network, show their portfolio and find work. At the same time, employers can find qualified talent for freelance and full-time positions.

Creatively strives to be an all-in-one platform for professional creatives and takes it a step further by also making payments easily accessible. Enter, Creative Pay.

Creatively, a job platform for creatives, introduces CreativelyPay, a feature that promises a fast and timely way for freelance creatives to get paid.

What is CreativelyPay and how does it work?

Creative understands how late payments can disrupt the daily lives of creatives. To ease their burden, Creatively has partnered with Orum, a fintech company with a mission to “provide smart, real-time and fully automated money movements”, to build its latest platform feature: CreativelyPay.

CreativelyPay is quite simple. Freelancers and contractors who upload their invoices on CreativelyPay can be paid by bank transfer the same day or after approval by the customer. According to Creatively, you don’t have to worry about delays in the transfer of ACH, which can prevent creatives from getting their money for three to five business days, as CreativelyPay’s technology removes that waiting time.

After all, creatives don’t have to wait to get paid for work they’ve already completed.

Employers also benefit from this feature. CreativelyPay advances professional payments to contractors and freelancers without affecting the payment process for the brands. Simply put, brands can still process payment on their terms, which is then received by CreativelyPay. In fact, brands can quickly process payouts, allowing them to recruit and retain talent.

While the main feature of CreativelyPay is its quick access to payments, it is also a dynamic tool that empowers creatives. By giving them control and certainty over their finances, CreativelyPay users have more confidence in exploring their full potential and even pursuing more competitive salaries.

So how do you get started?

Take advantage of early access to CreativelyPay

Creatively will launch CreativelyPay to the public this year. However, you can now join Creatively and sign up for the CreativelyPay waiting list. Early members of CreativelyPay get free access for a limited time, meaning no transaction fees.

In addition, creatives can also use CreativelyPay to process invoices from customers outside of Creatively. A significant advantage that can save you the hassle of managing multiple invoices.

Why should you get involved creatively?

Aside from the unique payment feature, Creatively advocates for creatives from all disciplines. Creatively’s community of over 250,000 creatives spans over 200 disciplines and skills. These include photography, film, fashion design, branding, illustration, animation, CGI, app and web design, product development, interiors and architecture, NFTs and emerging technologies, and much more.

Creative strives to serve as the central hub for job openings from more than 2,000 brands. Through the platform, creatives can develop a portfolio of their best work, as well as collaborate and connect with others to expand their network.

Expand access to diverse talent

Creatively is committed to nurturing a community that is diverse in every way. Nearly 70% of the creatives on the platform identify as black, indigenous or people of color. Creatively also partners with the Council of Fashion Designers of America to create IMPACT, an initiative designed specifically to help Black and Brown creatives find work in fashion and beyond.
