How it works
1. Accept invite
Make sure to accept the email invite sent by your client so you are automatically connected with them on the platform. If you can't see it then please search your inbox for firstname.lastname@example.org.
2. Create a profile
The link in the email invite will direct you to create your profile on Storyhunter.
After this you will be directed through the profile creation pages where you will need to enter your basic information, add a profile photo, upload samples of previous work, and details about your professional set up.
3. Enter your payment information
Once your basic profile has been set up you will be directed to your profile page. The next step is to add your payment information. Click your profile picture in the top right corner and select Settings to get started.
In the Settings page select Payout from the options on the left of the page. Hit Add payout method on the right to get started. You can then select your country of residence from the drop-down menu to see what payout methods Storyhunter offers in your location. If you have any questions along the way please consult our help article or send a note to email@example.com.
4. Join Client’s Private Network
The client who invited you will receive a notification and your profile will appear in their Saved network. Once they've located your profile they will click "Hire".
5. Accept Offer
Upon clicking "Hire" the publisher will enter the details of the commission. You will receive an email notification that they've made you an offer. You then just need to accept the offer and electronically sign your contract with the client.
6. Get paid
Once the project has been accepted and marked as "complete" by both parties, your payment will be logged. Storyhunter pays you in 30 days, guaranteed. You can see the expected date of your payment within the relevant project page. To avoid any delays, make sure you have added and selected your preferred payment method.
