HS Brands International processes ALL independent contractor payments via PayPal or direct deposit. If you do not accept payments via PayPal or through direct deposit, you are not eligible to provide services for HS Brands international. Independent contractors must set up their own PayPal account at www.Paypal.com or direct deposit. Independent contractors must be 18 years of age or older to sign up for PayPal or direct deposit. Payments are submitted to PayPal or direct deposit approximately 75 days after the last day of the month in which the project was completed. Please note that it then takes PayPal up to 5 business days to process these transactions and clear the money for disbursement. If you do not receive payment by this time, please notify us after confirming that both your email address and PayPal or direct deposit accounts were correct and active. You are responsible for updating your email address in our system, and in your PayPal account (email addresses must be EXACTLY the same) to ensure prompt payment. Your Shop Log will provide a description of your payment, so there is no need to call us unless your log does not match what you were emailed when you accepted the project and the agreed timeframe.
