Electronic payments of your CCC royalties are fast, secure, and better for the environment.
I’d like to receive electronic payments. How do I start?
Click the link below based on your location and follow the instructions on the Authorization Form for electronic payments.
Is there an additional fee associated with making this change?
No. There is no additional fee for requesting or accepting electronic royalty payments from CCC.
Will I get my royalties more quickly if I set up electronic payments?
Yes. Electronic royalty payments are available within 3 business days after CCC transfers the funds to your bank — much faster than paper checks.
What bank does CCC use to make electronic royalty payments to my bank account?
CCC processes electronic royalty payments via JP Morgan Chase, which abides by The Electronic Payments Association’s governing regulations for electronic transactions.
How do I know if my bank will accept electronic payments from CCC?
Most banks accept electronic transactions. If you’re not sure, please check with your bank before submitting your information to CCC. After we receive your Authorization Form, we will conduct a preliminary test transaction (also known as prenoting) to be sure your bank processes the electronic royalty payment appropriately. CCC can make electronic payments to checking accounts.
How long does it take to set up electronic royalty payments? How do I know when the set-up is complete?
We will confirm receipt of your Authorization Form to our secure email account immediately by auto-response. Set-up takes up to 21 business days, so you may receive a payment by check in the interim.
Can I receive my royalty payment through a service like PayPal or Venmo?
At this time, CCC can only make electronic payments to checking accounts.
I’d like to sign up for electronic royalty payments. What security measures do you have in place?
CCC takes data security and privacy very seriously. We’ve received ISO 27001 certification and completed three SOC 2 Type 2 audits. In addition, a third-party accounting firm reviews our internal control structure and data security every year. To further ensure the security of customer data, we also:
- Utilize a top-tier bank and their treasury system’s robust security controls for all our banking transactions;
- Deploy secure servers to ensure that all customer banking information is protected; and
- Limit access to these secure systems to select CCC personnel.
The form asks for an “authorized” individual name and their title. What does “authorized” mean?
If you’re an author, you are the authorized individual, and should enter “Author” as your title. If you’re an agent or other individual who represents the author or author’s estate and are completing the form on behalf of that author or author’s estate, you are an authorized individual, and should enter “Agent” or other term as your title. If you’re a publisher and are either the rightsholder yourself or representing a rightsholder, it’s most likely you are in that organization’s finance department or are a senior manager of that organization, and you are an authorized individual.
