Hyperwallet’s Partnership with Lyric Brings Advance Royalty Payments to Artists

Mass payout platform Hyperwallet has teamed up with Lyric Financial, a financial services provider specializing in royalty advances and loans for musical artists.

In the press release, Hyperwallet CEO Brent Warrington explained that recording artists face a struggle of income unpredictability. “Our job as a global payout platform is to help change the way these folks get paid, ultimately ensuring financially vulnerable workers have quick, efficient, and secure access to their earnings, whenever and wherever they need them,” he added.

Hyperwallet’s payout solution is scalable and allows users to get paid in real-time. This is valuable to Lyric clients, who will benefit from faster, more efficient royalty payment advances that help smooth out irregular and delayed payouts for their work. “Powering our royalty payment disbursement platform with Hyperwallet has not just improved the speed of distribution, but has also further increased visibility into the process for our payees,” said Eli Ball, Lyric Financial CEO.

Since Hyperwallet facilitates low-cost bank transfers across almost a dozen countries, including India, Russia, Brazil, and Indonesia, the partnership will also help Lyric support its growing roster of global clients. Ball added, “It’s reassuring knowing that the Hyperwallet network can easily enable us to expand our local payouts across 100+ countries quickly and easily.”

Hyperwallet most recently presented at FinDEVr Silicon Valley 2016, where Bill Crowley, Chief Product Officer, and Blair Olynyk, Software Architect, gave a presentation titled, Pay the Planet: Implementing Frictionless Global Payout Distribution. Last December, Hyperwallet began supporting payouts from Amazon’s Australia marketplace. Hyperwallet was founded in 2000 and is headquartered in Austin, Texas.

Hyperwallet Now Supports Payouts from Amazon’s Australia Marketplace

‘Tis the season for online shopping (and selling). Today, just weeks after the Texas-based company opened its Asia Pacific office in Sydney, Australia, mass payout platform Hyperwallet began supporting disbursements from Amazon’s Australia marketplace.

Starting today, Amazon sellers across the globe can leverage Hyperwallet’s multi-currency payout solution to accept disbursements from sales made on Amazon’s new Australia-based marketplace. Simon Banks, Hyperwallet’s Asia Pacific Managing Director, said that the company aims to extrapolate Amazon’s usability into “the supply side of marketplace transactions, streamlining the onboarding and disbursement process for independent sellers.” To register, sellers use the Login with Amazon option on Hyperwallet’s page. Once registered, users benefit from Hyperwallet’s network of banking relationships across the globe.

After noting that the new development adds to the ways Hyperwallet is supporting the international freelance community, company CEO Brent Warrington said, “Faster, more affordable cross-border disbursements is something we’re very passionate about, and we’re happy to offer that experience to sellers on the Amazon Marketplace.”

Hyperwallet most recently presented at FinDEVr Silicon Valley 2016, where Bill Crowley, Chief Product Officer, and Blair Olynyk, Software Architect, gave a presentation titled, Pay the Planet: Implementing Frictionless Global Payout Distribution. Since it was founded in 2000, Hyperwallet has distributed billions of dollars in payouts to more than 8 million individuals worldwide. Earlier this year the company bolstered its loyalty program through an integration with Dosh. In January, Hyperwallet expanded to London to support the region’s burgeoning population of gig economy workers.
