How much commission does InfluencerActive take?
You can set your own rates in the InfluencerActive Marketplace. InfluencerActive takes a 25% commission on each transaction.
How do I receive bookings?
When a customer makes a purchase you will receive an email with relevant details. This provides you with an opportunity to review the request. You will also have the opportunity to:
- Accept the request
- Decline the request
- Ask questions / request media.
How do I contact customers?
When a customer has made a purchase, you will be able to communicate with them through your ActiveInfluencer inbox. Each purchase is classified as a “Transaction” – and all communications between you and your customer is logged by transaction. This means it’s easy to review all transaction history.
How do I complete a job?
After accepting a job, you can carry out any related tasks (liking a post, creating a post etc) at any time. However, we recommend you check with your customer to ensure that you are coordinating your activities. When you have completed your task:
- Open your InfluencerActive inbox
- Review the transaction
- Send a notification to your customer, sharing the link to the published post etc.
How do I get paid?
When do I get paid for bookings?
After your Influencer Gig has been marked as complete, funds will be released into your designated bank account. We use Stripe to distribute funds into bank accounts in over 40 countries. This takes 7-10 days AFTER the transaction has been completed.
After you have ACCEPTED your Influencer Gig, payment will be transferred into your account immediately.
How do I refund a booking?
Sometimes customers can dispute a booking, or you might need to refund a booking for some other reason. If this is the case:
- PayPal: Login to the PayPal account that you have connected to InfluencerActive. Find the correct transaction (usually shown as #XXXXXXX) and click full or partial refund depending on the case. Also, let us know that you have issued a refund so that we can also refund the commission.
- Stripe: If the payment has not been processed through Stripe as yet, please contact us and let us know and we will issue a refund before it is processed to your account. If the transaction has been marked as complete, you will need to refund the customer directly from your own account. You may want to use the PayPal “send money” function to do this.
