Does HOLLYFY handle transactions?

Yes.

We provide an easy transaction flow so more money can go directly to the creators…and advertisers reduce the middle-men between them and the end result. We’ve found this yields faster results and more happy customers.

Stripe software and APIs help us accept payments and send payouts. They help us beat fraud, send invoices, manage business spend, and much more.

Known as “The backbone for internet business”, the Stripe API is one of the most secure payment processing services online. For more information, check out Stripe API reference.

What payment methods are acceptable?

There are several ways you can construct payments between marketers and entertainment creators:

Currently, we allow many widely accepted Visa, MasterCard, debit cards, and other popular credit cards. 

Our roadmap will focus on adding other forms of payment methods such as: direct deposit, escrow accounts, PayPal, cryptocurrency,…and more.

Are there transaction fees?

Yes.

We charge a nominal fee to both parties. This fee helps us run our business and provide the services our users enjoy. In general, the fee (as a percentage) decreases as the transaction price increases. 

Are sequential payments available?

Not yet.

Sequential payments is a methodology that slowly releases funds at each stage of the transaction. 

Essentially, a security deposit reserves the integration, kickoff costs can be paid after the initial kick off meeting, after each sequential meeting another payment can be transferred and once the contract is complete a final payment would be transferred.

To further align interests, you could choose to allocate a reserve for bonus payments if the project progresses better than expected. Bonus payments could be issued during any phase (or following a release).

Stay tuned.
