Stripe Beta

Dec 15, 2016

Every freelancer needs a way of accepting payments from clients. To make this process as smooth as possible, we built a Stripe integration to accept card payments by simply connecting your Stripe account. The integration is currently in beta, but we’re looking for freelancers who accept card payments to help us test it. If you’re interested, contact us from within Cushion and we’ll enable the beta for your account.

These past few weeks, we started looking at Cushion and asking questions we’d find ourselves wondering as freelancers. Am I on track for the year? Did I earn as much as I needed to this month? We quickly realized that there’s so much more we could do with the monthly view.

Moonlighter Plan

Nov 07, 2016

Cushion has always focused on freelancers, but we quickly realized that the majority of freelancers don’t actually freelance full-time. Many of them have part-time jobs, but most of them moonlight outside of a full-time job. Because of this, we decide to add a plan specifically for them—the Moonlighter plan!
