Do I have to pay anything upfront?

There is no upfront cost for the standard Twine product. You can post your project for free. When you accept a creative to work with, you will pay an agreed deposit with the creative, which is a percentage of the project total.

How do deposits work?

When you agree to work with a creative and hire them, you will need to pay the pre-agreed deposit, which is at 10, 25 or 50% of the project total. Twine holds on to this deposit and only releases it to the creative once the project is completed when you make the final payment.

What if the project does not work out?

If the your creative is yet to start, we will refund the whole deposit payment. If the creative has completed the project and fulfilled the specification you agreed upon when you hired them, we would expect you to pay the full amount. If the project is part completed, we would recommend that you come to an agreement with your creative on how much to pay depending on the amount of work they have done. If there are any issues, the Twine team are here to help.

Can you hire a creative on a day rate?

At the moment, this is only supported with Twine Enterprise. We recommend you calculate project budgets based on the length of time that it will take a creative to complete it.
