Frequently Asked Questions

How is my personal banking information kept secure?

Lumanu is integrated with Plaid by Visa to ensure that all of your personal and payment information is fully encrypted and that no one (including Lumanu) has access to your bank account or routing number. 

Lumanu does not collect, store, share, or sell data under any circumstances.


What are “Vendor Sign Up” or “Vendor Onboarding” processes, and how can Lumanu help?

“Vendor Sign Up Processes” is a required registration process creators undergo with a brand partner to get approved as a “Vendor” in order to get paid. Not all brands require vendor approvals, but if they do, it can be a confusing and tedious process for creators. Lumanu takes this off your plate entirely so you never have to worry about it again. 


Does my brand partner need to create a Lumanu account to be able to pay me?

No! As soon as you send a request for payment, your brand partner will receive the request via the email address provided, just like any other invoice. The brand will then be able to pay the invoice to Lumanu.

I am a manager or assistant to a creator. Can I use Lumanu on behalf of a creator?

Yes, managers and assistants can log in and send payment requests on behalf of the creator. All of the same perks of using Lumanu Pay apply for approved team members.

How does Lumanu help me get paid sooner?

Lumanu helps streamline payments by handling the vendor signup process, managing invoicing and follow-ups, and automating the ACH process with same-day or one-day processing. You’ll receive money in your bank account as soon as your brand partner sends funds. 

Lumanu has pre-established relationships with leading influencer agencies and brands, so we are often able to accelerate payment terms, meaning we’re not holding your money in a “balance.” Instead, we’re immediately depositing your money into your bank account!


Do I need to connect my social accounts to use Lumanu?

You do not need to connect your social accounts to use Lumanu. You can use Lumanu with simply an email address, password, and bank account. If you want to take advantage of other features Lumanu provides creators, you may opt to connect your social accounts under your Settings
