Lumanu is a payments solution for both creators and the businesses they work with. Founded in 2017, Lumanu is a venture-backed startup that has raised $18M to date from major investors such as Origin Ventures, early backers in Grubhub and Cameo. Led by CEO Tony Tran, Lumanu was founded on the mission that creators should be empowered to thrive on their own terms.
Lumanu has paid tens of thousands of creators, including major influencers with millions of followers such as Erika Kullberg and Blake Michael, and our business customers include Revolve, Reformation, Walmart and Fashion Nova.
How will Lumanu work for you?
There are two ways you can use Lumanu as a creator:
- You can receive payment from one of our business customers, like the one that directed you to this blog post! This payment can be pushed to you automatically, or you may be asked to invoice the brand via the Lumanu mobile app, which you can download for Apple or Android.
- You can request payment from any client you work with. Once the mobile app is on your phone, you can use our free, fast payments feature to send a professional looking invoice to anyone, in seconds.
Either way, the money you receive is deposited directly into your Lumanu wallet, at which point you can transfer it to your own bank account. This means you never have to share your sensitive banking information with your clients. Lumanu is a secure, safe platform that protects your sensitive information, and we can never see or access what’s in your bank account.
Bonus! Get paid early with Lumanu
One of the best features about the Lumanu mobile app is our EarlyPay feature. You can request EarlyPay on any invoice with the click of a button, and we’ll pay you instantly for work you’ve already completed. Never wait 30, 60 or 90 days for a client or brand to pay you. Get your money when you complete deliverables, and never wait for another delayed payment again.
We’re always here for you
