Depending on the type of Project you have created, your Campaign finances will work in different ways.  Direct Offers When making a Direct Offer, you must have enough funds in your Balance to cover the cost of the Offer. The funds will go on hold as soon as the Offer is made and will be paid to the Creator 45 days after their content goes live. If the Creator does not accept the Direct Offer in time or you decide to void the Offer, the funds will go back to your Campaign Balance (if you have set one) or to your main balance (if you have not set a Campaign Balance).  Open Bidding Creating an Open Bidding Project will allow you to get an idea of who might be interested in participating in your Campaign before you allocate funds to a specific Creator. Once you have a list of interested Creators, you can vet through the list and accept the best Creators for your Campaign. Funds will go on hold once you accept a Bid to be paid to the Creator 45 days after their content goes live.  Negotiating In order to negotiate an Offer price, you must have the funds in either the Campaign Balance (if you initially set one) or in your main balance. These funds will go on hold once you have negotiated a new Offer price. <p dir="ltr">Understanding how your Account Finances work is a crucial part in making sure you secure enough content for a successful Campaign.

This article will walk you through the different ways to fund your Campaigns. Allocating Funds To Your Account   Before you are able to make Offers to Creators, you will need to allocate funds to your Marketer account from your Organization. This can only be done at the Admin level and will need to be completed before creating your first Campaign.  Setting A Campaign Budget (optional)   When you create a new Campaign, you will have the option of setting a Campaign Budget. Your Campaign Budget will ensure you do not overspend your Account Balance, and direct funds accordingly in your Campaign initiatives. You must have funds in your Account Balance in order to set a Campaign budget. *Note: You can only set a Campaign budget when you first create your Campaign. Otherwise, you will have to manage the budget for that Campaign manually. For example: If you have $1,000 in your main account balance and would like to split those funds between two different campaign initiatives, you can set up your account so that Campaign #1 (To promote your monthly contest) will max out at $500 and Campaign 2 (To promote your new product) will max out at $500. Any funds that aren't used in the Campaign need to be reallocated back to your main balance when your Campaign has ended. <p>There are a few ways to fund your Campaigns within the platform.

This content has passed the initial verification process, confirming that content is live but has not yet gone through the secondary verification to confirm that the content is still live and in the Marketer-approved format 45 days after it was posted. If the content is removed or changed before secondary verification, the content will fail verification.  Failed Verification Content that is not live and does not match what was originally approved will fail verification and will not be eligible for payment. In order for content to be eligible for payment you will need to manually verify the Creator's content.  Verified Content that has been live for 45 days and has passed the secondary verification will appear as Verified.
