Beginning Monday, May 21, 2018, Pretty Instant will be using Stripe Connect to process direct deposit payments and will no longer be using Payable. Payments are made to you via Direct Deposit ACH transfers.

To setup your Stripe Connect account visit your nexus profile and click the "Connect to Stripe" link. This will open a new page where you will need to add your bank account number and routing number, or a debit card, as well as some additional info into your Stripe Connect account settings. All of your personal info is transmitted and stored securely on Stripe, an industry-leading payment processor and can be updated at any time by clicking the "View Payouts in Stripe" button in your nexus profile.

Note regarding Payable:

Payable was acquired by Stripe in 2017 and we will no longer be using it to track Pretty Instant work or process payments. For the foreseeable future you will still have access to your Payable login for accounting purposes, but we do suggest that you export any data you need. 

After each event you work, you will need to fill out our Photographer Invoicing and Event Experience form found in your Nexus Dashboard and also available here.  Once your submission is complete you will receive an email receipt of your submission.

  1. Click into your gig in Nexus

  2. Click "Send Invoice" button
  3. Confirm the details of your invoice, updating the timing if your gig ran long.
  4. Enter your feedback and you're good to go!
