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.
Add Account Funds
A payment method needs to be added prior to adding account funds to payout influencers. Please contact your CSM in order to set up a payment method.
Step 1 Click your profile name, on the right hand corner and select Account Settings from the drop-down menu.
Step 2 In the menu on the left-hand side, click Payment Settings and click Deposit Funds.
Step 4 Choose a payment method, enter a deposit amount and click Add Funds.
When you use a credit card to pay for influencers you will incur a 2.9% + $0.30 processing fee for every payment made.
Step 5 On the menu on the left-hand side, click Payment Settings and under Enable Payments select Enabled.
If Disabled is selected your influencers will not have the option to connect their PayPal and submit a W-9 in order to receive payment.
