What Is the NDA?

The non-disclosure agreement (NDA) is part of our contractor agreement, which is required for anyone working in our community. The NDA is also known as a confidentiality agreement, meaning that you are not legally able to publicly discuss or post any details about our professional arrangement, including but not limited to:

  • The names of clients that you work with.
  • Any information outlined in project offers.
  • Details associated with any pending or completed assignments.
  • Emails between you and CopyPress.

This means you cannot post any work on a public profile or portfolio. You can contact with questions regarding using samples of your work.

How and When Do I Get Paid?

We pay all contractors via Tipalti. Payments are issued after the client approval stage. We operate on net-30 and net-90 schedules depending on your contract. You will receive an invoice notification prior to payment being issued.

Why Does it Take 30 or 90 Days To Receive Payment?

The payment window for contractor work is a policy that protects CopyPress and its contractors. Clients have 30 days from the time work is submitted to request a revision. If we paid for work prior to it being client approved, we'd face issues ordering revisions. Additionally, clients typically pay CopyPress on net terms, which means we receive payment from clients some time after work is approved. The payment window ensures that the work is client approved and we've received payment from the client for the completed assignment. 

How Much Can I Earn?

Your earning potential is completely dependent on your abilities. The more quality work you deliver, the more likely you are to receive additional assignments. We also allow contractors to stipulate their pay rates during the onboarding process; the more reasonable your rates, the more eligible you will be for assignment offers.

Do Clients Own the Copyright to the Content?

Yes. When working with CopyPress, any assignments you submit are owned by CopyPress and subsequently transferred to clients. This means you do not have permission to republish or redistribute content without the explicit consent of CopyPress.

What Is Your Plagiarism Policy?

We check all articles for duplication and plagiarism issues. If you purposefully plagiarize, you may be warned or fired, depending on the severity. Outside of syndicated assignments, all submitted work should be completely unique.
