How it works:
The Weekly Invoicing Cycle
Ebyline consolidates all of your purchases into one simple weekly invoice. When you approve the purchase of a project, it will be queued for weekly invoicing, which occurs on Thursday night at 12am Midnight Eastern time.
Payments to Freelancers
Once Ebyline has verified payment of your weekly invoice, fees owed to the freelancers for that invoice will be sent to their Paypal account. Freelancers must have an active Paypal account to receive their payment. Refer to our guide on how to setup a Paypal account, if your freelancer needs assistance: How To Setup your PayPal Account.
Transaction HistoryYou can use your Transaction screen to review your purchased projects, and confirm if your freelancer has received their payment for the project. Additional help can be found in our guide: How to View Past Purchases.
Ebyline completes all tax reporting tasks, including issuance of 1099-Misc forms, Independent Contractor/New Hire reporting, and other tax related issues.
How much does it cost?
Plus users - Ebyline Plus Organizations have unlimited access to freelancer profiles through the "Search" feature, unlimited postings to the Ebyline Pitch board, and full access to all the workflow tools in the platform. You will be charged a monthly subscription fee per editor of $50.00 (or $420 annually). This will be a separate charge to the card on file, independent of any weekly invoices generated.
Enterprise users - If you're an Enterprise Organization, with credit card information entered on your account, the above process will apply to you. Otherwise, the invoice will be sent to your Account Payable contact for processing and payment of your invoice.
When you agree to commission a freelancer through Ebyline, you are agreeing to pay the freelancer according to the terms in the Ebyline Independent Contractor Agreement and the Ebyline Publisher Agreement. Simply put, if you find the freelancer though Ebyline, you are obligated to pay freelancers using Ebyline.
