The eSpeakers Marketplace platform makes it easy to research, select and hire great presenters for your meetings and events.
When you hire a presenter through the eSpeakers Marketplace platform, your payment to the presenter is processed through the platform; you don't send a check or other payment directly to the speaker. Paying through the platform gives you peace of mind:
Here's how it works:
If you choose to pay via paper check sent through the mail , the process remains exactly the same but takes longer.
The eSpeakers platform immediately emails you a printable invoice, against which the you print a check and mail it to eSpeakers Processing (the address is on the invoice). On receipt, eSpeakers deposits the check into the Speaker's account and the the rest of the process happens as it would with any of the other payment methods. You will send a second check on the day of the event for the balance owed.
Buyers located outside of North America, who are unable to pay with a credit card, can pay with a wire transfer.
eSpeakers facilitates the transaction but responsibility for paying always rests on the Buyer.
An offer that has been ACCEPTED is considered a binding contract. What happens when one side or the other backs out of that agreement depends on: which party is backing out (the Buyer or the Speaker), whether a deposit has already been paid, and how far away the event date is.
