Use SafePay and Autopay to protect the time and effort you spend on Guru.

SafePay helps create transparency on the platform. The shared account is funded by the Employer before work begins. This gives a sense of security to both the Employer (who knows they can review work before releasing payment) and the Freelancer (who can see that funds are available).

AutoPay is ideal for an Employer who manages multiple invoices. When AutoPay is enabled, the Freelancer gets paid for outstanding invoices from SafePay within an agreed-upon timeframe - 7, 14, or 28 days after the invoice is issued.
