Didn’t pay what was agreed

Great communication with getting the job and instructions for the job. The problem is that we agreed on one amount and I was only paid 40% of that amount. Sending emails now back and forth but still have not received the rest on my payment. 1st time ever with this company.

I got the money that was promised. Don’t know why the mixup but everything is good now. I wouldn’t go out my way unless it’s a guaranteed gig but if you are out & see something it doesn’t hurt to stop shoot some footage and upload it.

Since signing up with Stringr this year, I have completed three video location opportunities for them. And all my three of my videos have been purchased! My recent, and third payment, was surprisingly from videos that I did several months ago at an event. I have been paid by the next business day, to my PayPal account with no problems. I really like this app, and I am looking forward to more opportunities. I am wishing you much success, Stringr.

Update: May 20, 2020
I am very surprised that Stringr is ignoring my request for a payment that is due me. In mid-April I uploaded my own video, from a story in my neighborhood. Stringr used my video the same day. I have dated photos of proof that I sent them today, when I requested a response. I even told them if they needed to pay me later that was okay, but I would like some communication regarding my video. If this matter is resolved to my satisfaction, I will change their rating that I just lowered from 5 to 1.

Great app and service but...

Stringr is a great idea, they have a great app and website but they don’t have the best support. There was one great encounter I had with a Stringr employee over text, they were very good with communicating to me the information I needed to complete the job, sadly I don’t remember the employee’s name because I think they should get a raise. The rest of my encounters have been insanely short and not helpful. I’ll ask for more information and 98% percent of the time the answer is just “no”, “ok”, “yes. thanks”.

As far as making money goes I’ve been paid,(somebody downloaded my video), about 65% of the time which is a good ratio being as there are plenty of other Stringers in my Metro Area.

If you’re in the area (within 1/2 a mile on foot, 5 miles with a bike and 20 miles with a car), 80% of the time it’s worth it. Also it’s worth noting that Stringr usually takes an average of 25 to 45 minutes after the PD/FD is dispatched to put out an alert for a big fire or accident call so if you see something big or are near something big, film it and text/call Stringr and let them know about it. I

Definitely download the app and get payment setup, you’ll never know when you’ll happen upon something good.
