Paying with an electronic check
The most common (and recommended) payment method for booking a vendor on GigSalad is a credit card. But, if you are in the US, you may also use an electronic check (eCheck).
When you're ready to book, you'll see two payment options* to choose from on the checkout page.
To pay with an eCheck, you'll need to provide your bank routing number as well as your checking account number. You can find this information at the bottom of a personal check, or through your account on your bank's website.
*We are currently testing a third option that allows you to pay using PayPal Credit as well.
Booking amount: We can only process eCheck payments for up to approximately $4,000. If your booking total is over this amount, you must pay with a credit card or contact us to discuss your options.
Processing time: It takes 3-5 business days for an eCheck to clear. If it does not clear, your booking will be canceled. At that time, you'll be sent a new quote, identical to the one you originally booked, so that you can book again with a new payment.
Last-minute events: If your event is less than 14 days away, you will not be able to pay with an eCheck due to the processing time mentioned above. Your payment must clear before your event takes place.
Canadian users: Unfortunately, users in Canada will not be able to pay with an eCheck. These transactions are processed through a United States-based network (ACH) that is unavailable in Canada.
