Chapter 5 - Getting Paid

Payment Schedule

CopyPress pays contractors on a bi-monthly schedule. If a payment or invoice day falls on a holiday or during the weekend you will receive your payment the following business day.

Take a look at the 2017 Payment Calendar for specific payment and invoice dates.

Content Payment Schedule

For all client-approved work in an invoice period ending in (1):

  • Writers/Editors: Invoice confirmations are sent by the 22nd of the month listed on the invoice.
  • Payments are made on the 1st of the following month.
  • Example: If an article is client approved and put in the 4(1) invoice, you’ll receive the confirmation request by 4/22 and the payment on 5/1.

For all client-approved work in an invoice period ending in (2):

  • Writers/Editors: Invoice confirmations are sent by the 8th of the month following the month listed on the invoice.
  • Payments are made on the 15th of that following month
  • Example: If an article is client approved and put in the 4(2) invoice, you’ll receive the confirmation request by 5/8 and the payment on 5/15.

Note: Date of client approval does not matter. The invoice period your content was placed into determines when you will be paid. Client approval and payment can take up to 90 days to occur.

It is normal for work in the same campaign to go into different invoices. Multiple articles submitted on the same day may go into different invoices. If your work is placed into an invoice, it is put in that invoice on purpose. If you do not have any work in an invoice, that does not mean you were overlooked. Not every invoice will have work.

Barring any legitimate reason for non-payment (e.g. plagiarism, failure to complete edit requests), you will always be paid for your work. CopyPress works hard to facilitate payment as quickly as possible to our creatives.
