How to Submit Influencer Payments through a Campaign

Within the GRIN platform, you have the ability to send payments directly to your influencers. Also, when payments are made outside of GRIN they can be recorded, as well. This gives you the ability to manage and track your influencer payments in one place.

Within GRIN there are two selection types and the differentiation can be found below:

  1. Cash Payment: This is a direct payment sent from the platform. This required the influencers to connect their PayPal and submit a W-9 or W-8BEN.
  2. Offline Payment: This option is used if you are simply recording the payment, but it will actually be sent to the influencer outside of the platform.

Part 3 of this guide will take you through submitting a "Cash Payment" while part 5 will take you through how to record and "Offline Payment".

Within this article, you will learn how to:
