Lumanu offers the best way for creators and freelancers to invoice, track, and get paid (sorry PayPal) and now with Lumanu EarlyPay, creators have a way to bypass payment terms and get paid when they want to. 

There is nothing more frustrating than entering into a collaboration or a gig with a client, completing the deliverables, and then having to wait what feels like an arbitrary amount of days to get paid due to the client’s company policy or net payments terms.  Many creators have reported having to wait 30, 60, even 90 days to get paid for work they already finished or posted for a client! 

Luckily, when you use Lumanu, you have the option to take control and get paid on your terms. Skip the wait with Lumanu EarlyPay and fast forward to payday without disrupting your clients'  preferred payment processes. 

Creators can use Lumanu EarlyPay when: 

  • A brand hits you with the lengthy net payment terms. 
  • You don’t want to deal with the hassle or possibility of a brand not paying you on time.
  • Life happens and you or your family experience any sort of personal emergency or incident where you need access to your cash before the negotiated due-date on your invoice. 
  • You are short on cash for bills that month but you know you have money coming. 
  • You need the cash to pay your staff or any hired help like make-up artists, photographers, etc. who you fronted money to ahead of time to be able to produce your amazing content. 
  • You need cash to reinvest into your creator business rent or buy new equipment to level up and help you continue to produce amazing content and take on more gigs sooner.
  • You need cash upfront to travel for gigs and won’t be expensed until later. 
  • You just don’t want to wait! You don’t need a reason, you earned it! 

The “game-changer of all game-changers” for creative freelancers

Lumanu believes creators should be able to achieve financial freedom doing what lights them up-- and part of achieving financial freedom as a creator means having more control and access to your cash flow.  

Advocate and Lifestyle designer, Jamilla Reddy, believes this payment feature IS the pay game-changer for creators.

"EarlyPay makes me feel safe. I have access to the money immediately. Lumanu EarlyPay enables me to be able to manage my finances and also manage my life in a way that's empowered. Lumanu EarlyPay is a game-changer of all game-changers. I can just breathe…..It feels really empowering to be able to, to just have the money on hand, I can just be like, "it's done, it's done and now I can just live my life". 

Tik Toker and talent manager Josh Sadowski explains how EarlyPay not only gives you the freedom to get paid on your own terms, but it can substantially alleviate the stress involved and strain on your relationship with your client that can occur when you constantly have to follow up and remind them to pay you on time. 

 "EarlyPay makes it easier for creators to get paid upfront, there's no more waiting 30, 60, or even 90 days to get your money. It can get really stressful when you're having to remind the brand over and over again so Lumanu kind of acts almost like a collections department to make sure that you're getting the money that you deserve in a timely manner.”
