Epic Games Support-A-Creator 2.0 Membership Migration
Starting today, January 26, 2021, all active Creators that joined the Support-A-Creator program before November 30, 2020 can begin the migration process to Support-A-Creator 2.0! In order to stay in the program, you must complete this process by April 26, 2021. If you do not complete this process by that date, you will be exited from the program.
How to Migrate to Support-A-Creator 2.0
Creators will need to follow these steps to complete the process:
Authenticate your social channels with a minimum of 1,000 followers for automated verification.
Existing Fortnite Creative Builders in Support-A-Creator 1.0 with fewer than 1,000 social followers should complete this form before migrating through the Support-A-Creator portal. These applicants will be manually reviewed.
Accept the new Creator Agreement.
If your Support-A-Creator 1.0 payee information is currently incomplete, you will be prompted to complete your payee information. If you do not complete this information within 60 days after accepting the new Creator Agreement, you will be exited from the program.
Note: If you do NOT want to migrate to Support-A-Creator 2.0, you will also have the option to accept a final payout (if one is owed to you) in cash or V-Bucks and immediately exit the program. If you do not complete the voluntary exit process or otherwise fail to migrate to Support-A-Creator 2.0 by April 26, 2021, then you will be exited from the program. Additionally:
If your program account has a remaining balance and you have previously completed your payee information, we will attempt to process your final payout using the payee information we have on file for you. However, if we are unsuccessful in our attempt due to your payee information being out of date or inaccurate, then you may lose your entitlement to receive a payout of that balance.
If your program account has a remaining balance but you have not previously completed your payee information, you may lose your entitlement to receive a payout of that balance.
Support-A-Creator Frequently Asked Questions
Where can I read more about what’s new in Support-A-Creator 2.0?
The Support-A-Creator 2.0 migration process does not alter existing Creator Codes.
Do I need to complete payee information or Hyperwallet verification again if I have already done that?
Creators won’t have to fill out payee information or complete Hyperwallet verification again if they have already successfully done that. If any information is incomplete, however, you will be asked to complete that within 60 days of beginning the migration process.
Do I need to do anything if I joined the Support-A-Creator program on or after November 30, 2020?
No, anyone that joined the Support-A-Creator program on or after November 30, 2020 is already in Support-A-Creator 2.0 and won’t need to take any action. If you’re unsure, sign in to the Support-A-Creator portal where you will be prompted to begin a migration if one is necessary.
If I choose to exit the program and accept a final payout in V-Bucks, how many V-Bucks will I get?
If your program account has an accrued balance of $0.01 to $7.99 USD and you choose a final payout in V-Bucks, you would receive 1,000 V-Bucks. Creators with program accounts that have accrued balances of $8.00 USD or more would receive a V-Bucks payout equal to 2X the base USD cost of V-Bucks. For example, a program account with an accrued balance of $8.00 USD would be eligible for a payout of 2,000 V-Bucks. Similarly, a program account with an accrued balance of $16.00 USD would be eligible for a payout of 4,000 V-Bucks. Note that there is no cap, so Creators with program accounts with accrued balances of $100.00 USD or more may choose to accept a final payout in V-Bucks.
If I choose to exit the program and accept a final payout in V-Bucks or USD, when will I receive the payout?
Both V-Bucks and USD payouts will be processed in the next regularly scheduled payout cycle following the date you elected to exit the program and accept a final payout. By way of example only, this means that Affiliates who elected this option between:
Jan 26th, 2021 - Jan 31st, 2021 will likely be paid on March 15th, 2021
Feb 1st, 2021 - Feb 28th, 2021 will likely be paid on April 15th, 2021
March 1st, 2021 - March 31st, 2021 will likely be paid on May 15th, 2021
April 1st, 2021 - April 26th, 2021 will likely be paid on June 15th, 2021
