If you have completed work with an Editor and that work was not done through the workflow in the system, you can request a payment from them on your Direct Pay dashboard. This article will walk you through requesting a Payment from the Editor (labeled as Marketer in the system).

3. From there click Direct Pay and once you are in the Direct Pay dashboard, select Request Payment in the bottom right-hand corner.
4. A flyout will appear asking you for a Description of your payment. You will also need to include the name of the Marketer who will be sending your payment.
5. To locate the Marketer, enter their Account name in the box provided and select the hourglass icon. Once their account populates, select the name of the Marketer and then Create Payment Request.
6. On the Payment Request page, select Create Line Item in the top right-hand corner.
7. From here, you will need to enter the following information:

This will be the amount agreed upon by you and the Marketer.
