Why should I sign up?
Grapevine makes it simple and easy to find and manage YouTube sponsorship opportunities. Sign up takes about 60 seconds and there are no obligations to join.
Do I still own my content?
Yes, absolutely! Grapevine and sponsors do not own your content! You retain the rights to everything you produce.
I already work with an MCN. Can I still work with Grapevine?
Grapevine is not a multi-channel network. You can work with both Grapevine and your MCN.
Does Grapevine require me to be exclusive?
Grapevine does not require creators to work with us exclusively.
What do you do with my data?
Grapevine requires creators to sign up using their YouTube channel accounts in order to periodically reference your YouTube analytics. This allows us to update your video statistics for the campaigns you're working on.
How many subscribers or followers do I need to be eligible?
We approve YouTube channels with a minimum of 10,000 subscribers who upload consistent content, and/or Instagram accounts with at least 10,000 followers. If you feel there was a mistake, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org
When do I get paid?
Creators are paid every other week.
You are 100% able to continue to source and run your own sponsorships.
Can you join if you are outside the US?
You absolutely can as long as you have a PayPal account. Also, in your proposals to brands, you will need to let them know you are not in the US/Canada, as many brands cannot ship outside North America and influencers need to be clear on the upfront about this.
Do payments have to go to a PayPal account?
Yes, PayPal is how we do payment. That being said, there is the option for it to be by check, but there is a 60 delay on that.
Why do I need to give a SSN?
This is for payment and tax purposes. At the end of the year, we'll send you a 1099 if you file taxes with the US government with the amount Grapevine paid you.
Why is my account not approved?
Every account is vetted through our approval system. You may not be approved for a number of reasons, either you do not meet the minimum subscribers and followers count, your content is not what we are looking for at this time, or we have not yet reached your account yet. We appreciate your patience while we sort through all of the pending accounts.
