ACH/DIRECT DEPOSIT PAYMENTS:
Payments from Discovery are made via ACH/direct deposit. Once set up, you will first receive a zero dollar transaction prenote to confirm your banking instructions. This is a one-time set up process per bank account which should be completed within 15 business days. Once we have a successful prenote, we will begin settling your payments electronically. Just prior to receiving each payment, you will receive an email with a PDF file notifying you of that payment’s upcoming settlement date and amount.
- Your production payments are released through the Discovery Production Management Department. Should any major incidents occur which greatly impact your cash flow position, contact your Discovery Production Manager and Discovery Executive Producer or Production Executive immediately.
- All payments are made upon delivery to and approval by Discovery of contracted Program Deliverables. Please allow for Discovery’s approval of all items within the timeframe identified in your Production Agreement.
- In the event Discovery, in its sole discretion, elects to pay Producer any portion of the Budget Contribution in advance of completion of the applicable payment milestones, such payment shall not relieve Producer of any of its obligations to complete the applicable milestones nor be deemed a waiver by Discovery.
