For some sponsorship packages, Creator will need to pay for initial outlay costs in order to perform a sponsorship. In such cases, the deposit requirement will be clearly denoted with the Package.
When a Creator accepts a sponsorship order for a Package with a deposit, the deposit amount will be released to the Creator immediately while the rest of the Package amount will be held in escrow until completion approval. Please take note that this deposit amount is non-refundable.
An example of a deposit required Package is a sponsored video where Creator has to produce costly content per Sponsor’s specifications before posting.
