Great news! Today, the midgame launched its sponsorship feature, meaning that influencers can start getting paid by sponsors!
And guess what? No more worrying about whether a sponsor is going to pay you or not. With our new payment feature, we have implemented an escrow model, that guarantees influencers get paid for completed work!
How does the Sponsorship Process work?
When you accept a Social Action, the sponsor will be asked to fund it. This allows the influencer to start working with the confidence that his/her funds are being kept safe for when the task is completed.
Once the influencer completes the Social Action, they can notify the sponsor. If the sponsor is satisfied with their work and feels that the influencer has delivered on all of the terms agreed upon, they will release the funds.
When the funds have been released by the sponsor, themidgame will transfer them to the influencer’s Paypal account within 15 days.
The escrow helps to regulate the payment processing for all influencers and sponsors, and allows both the influencer and sponsor to concentrate on the task at hand, while we take care of the payment processing.

How does themidgame accept payments?
Payments through themidgame are safe, secure and reliable.
We use Stripe as our payment gateway. Stripe is a US company that provides a way to accept payments over the internet. As stated on their website, “Stripe has been audited by a PCI-certified auditor, and is certified to PCI Service Provider Level 1. This is the most stringent level of certification available.”
How does an influencer get hired by a sponsor?
With the Influencer Profile allowing you to show your monthly reach in a beautiful, simplistic way, it will be easier than ever to get sponsored.
Each Influencer Profile has been updated with a new ‘Sponsor’ button, which will allow influencers to receive paid work directly through their profile.
The sponsor simply fills in the details of the campaign, and the influencer will receive a notification that they have been offered sponsorship.
The influencer can then accept or decline the offer, or they can negotiate the price with the sponsor, communicating through our new messaging system.
We’re so excited to launch this next phase of themidgame and we hope it will help many influencers out there to continue doing what they love, and getting paid for it!
