We pay our contributors through Payoneer and PayPal. The timing of our payments is dependent on the service you use.
If you use Payoneer, payment will be issued once a month, on the 14th. Invoices are typically cleared within 2 weeks of receipt. To ensure timely payment, please submit your invoice before the submission deadline. You can find the submission deadlines in the News & Updates section of Appen Connect.
Here are some important points to note:
- If you submit your invoice on or before the monthly deadline and it is approved without any issues, you will be paid on the 14th of that month.
- Invoices submitted after the deadline will be paid in the following month's payment.
For self-reported invoices, if an invoice is returned due to missing or incorrect data, the payment terms will be based on the corrected invoice's receipt date.
- Self-reported invoices are available for select projects where work is done on a third-party platform. In this situation, you will be informed about the invoice method during the application process.
- You will receive an email notification once your invoice has been paid. Please note that it may take an additional 3 to 5 business days for your bank to process the payment and for the funds to appear in your account.
If you are paid via PayPal, your invoices are created and submitted on your behalf and will not appear under your invoice tab. PayPal payments are processed weekly on Thursdays by 5pm PST. You will receive an email notification once payment has been made.
