First: I don't think so. An agreement is an agreement and counts as a contract, even if it is not on paper and signed.
That said, I don't know what kind of companies those are, but there aren't many that would risk becoming publicly known for not paying what was agreed in order to save a few thousand bucks.
Not claiming there is 0 "risk", there almost never is, but still.
Either way, I at least am happy to leave the practical aspects of how to get the money to those who will receive any.
