We take extreme measures to get paid
as soon as possible so we can get you paid. Our billing
department works very hard to ensure our clients are paying
us as soon as possible.
Below are the steps of how the payment process works:
1. Talent "successfully"
completes a job
2. Talent Faxes and/or mails in all
required paperwork within 24 - 48 hours depending on job
(Signed Timesheets, Report Forms, Surveys, Telephone Reporting,
3. Once STEEL Agency receives paperwork,
client is invoiced (usually the day after promotion or event
4. Client sends payment to STEEL
5. Talent check is mailed
6. Whole payment process "APPROXIMATELY"
takes 30-90 days. However, if client pays sooner, talent
check will be mailed sooner. Some clients may take longer
to pay, so please remember this. We do our best to stay
on top of our clients for payment and to try and get you
paid as soon as possible. Please do not contact us about
payment unless it is 90 days or more since the date you
sent in all of your required paperwork and have not received
payment yet. If 90 days have passed and you still have not
received payment, please contact our billing department
