Hi all,

Question for US based VO. Working on some audiobooks and a friend suggested I use Eljin Prod. as my paymaster which I did (seems they're the suggested paymaster for ACX.) However he didn't mention he uses them through his agent and doesn't personally deal with them. I'm very new to doing books and using ACX, so I'd like if possible, to find a paymaster that is a bit more responsive and timely. I'm fine waiting 30 days for my payment but I'd like to know when the client's payment has cleared so I can release the title sooner.

Thanks in advance,

Jonny

Others will post the same I'm sure... Tom Allamon at Falcon Paymasters is well respected by many people here.

John at Elgin is great, but Noah at Skywire Paymaster deals exclusively with audio books and is much more responsive (and has more options for the RH to send payment).

This is so valuable a topic I've moved to Research and Development as well.

Thanks Adam, that's very helpful. Conor JUST replied to my email from 6 days ago so at this point I'm definitely not sticking with Eljin.
