Felix is a new payment app for employers with freelancers to ensure that their services are compensated quickly and efficiently

It can be difficult to get paid on time as a freelancer, especially when invoices have to be sent by email to be processed. Felix, a new app, is looking to make it easier for freelancers to get compensated quickly for their work. The app itself is simple: freelancers enter into an agreement with their employers to be paid automatically when they submit an invoice through the app. Then, all they have to do is log their weekly hours to receive their payment. Employers have 48 hours to file a dispute should something be amiss with the invoice. The app takes about 4% of the invoice as a processing fee.

Co-founder David Phelps told Fast Company that the app will hopefully lead to more productive conversations on how to help freelancers better to do their jobs. “The more that we can create a community out of this, and the more that we can create a network where people can exchange advice, share tips, and empower each other, the stronger their businesses will be, and the more money we’ll get paid.”
