How to Solve the Creator Payment Problem

Getting paid on time is incredibly important for all digital content creators. Yet, the processes associated with creator payments are some of the most frustrating parts of the business. Lumanu solves these issues and provides the lowest fees in the industry.


The Problem with Creator Payments

Getting paid can be confusing, tedious, and lacks standardized processes. There’s a ton of ambiguity around what is actually the best, or right way to pay creators. On top of that, every brand’s preferred payment method and the process is different. While some brands may require tax forms or for you to become an approved vendor in their internal system, other brands may opt to pay you out directly through PayPal, which presents its own set of risky and confusing challenges.

The uncertainty of not knowing how you will be paid, negotiating payment processing fees, manually creating invoices, dealing with tax paperwork, and sometimes enduring a brand’s confusing “vendor onboarding process” is not only mentally draining, but it distracts your energy away from doing what you truly love: Creating amazing, compelling and authentic content.
