Getting started with Kalo
We use online software called Kalo to manage payments for all of our writers. Before your first piece is published to Massive, you’ll be invited to Kalo by one of our editors. If you continue writing for Massive after completing our training, you’ll be able to use Kalo to get paid for the pieces we publish! Kalo helps us to maintain an organized record of all our required documentation we’ve received from you and all the payments we’ve made to you.
Creating an account
Before your first piece is published to Massive, you’ll receive an email invitation to join Kalo from a Massive editor. After accepting the invitation, you’ll be asked to answer some questions to help fill out your author profile on Massive and to fill out our Contributor Agreement. Finally, you’ll be asked to add some banking information (which is stored securely by Kalo and never directly accessed by us), so that you can be compensated for any pieces you publish with us after you’ve completed our training course and receive certification.
If you expect to have received an invitation but haven’t, or if you lost or deleted the email, please let us know! We’ll resend it.
If you continue writing for Massive after completing our training, you’ll be able to invoice us for compensation for the pieces we publish. To do this, first sign into your Kalo account. Then, create a new invoice. You’ll be notified when we approve it.
Payments happen on a semi-monthly schedule, meaning we pay all of our outstanding, approved invoices on the 15th day and the last day of every month. If you’ve provided your banking information, the money should be automatically deposited to your bank account.
If you run into a problem with payments, please contact Gabe.
