Mark your calendars. The image Marketplace will make its official debut to all on September 18, 2017. We’re excited to hit this milestone and you should be too! Your content will be available for sale to our entire growing base of members. So now is the time to make sure your content is uploaded, tagged, and ready for primetime.
Here’s what you need to know.
The Marketplace will graduate from Beta and go live to all on September 18. We will be making a big announcement to the entire community, and generating buzz through a special promotional campaign. We’re making sure all 180,000 of our current members know about it, plus potential new customers.
How You Should Prep
If you haven’t yet, make sure you upload and tag your content soon so it will be live on the site for the launch. The exposure associated with the promotional campaign will bring some serious attention to the Marketplace and we don’t want you or your content to miss out!
Get Down to Business
So what happens when the sales start to roll in? If you visit the Finance tab within your account, you will see a page set up for your Sales History. There you will be able to see any purchases made and the associated date. We have a minimum payment threshold of $25 for each site in order to help you save money on transaction fees. Earnings under the threshold will accumulate and carry over. Once you reach that balance, you’ll be eligible to receive your payout in the next cycle.
If you already have content live in the Marketplace, you may have earned a few sales through our Beta stage. If that’s the case, the first payout will be issued on September 15 and we will follow our normal monthly payment schedule from that point forward. Please remember to complete your payment and tax information under your Account tab in order to qualify for payouts.
Didn’t make any sales during Beta? Not to worry! The audience that was exposed to the Beta version of the Marketplace was small and sales were comparable. We expect sales volume to pick up after the official launch. As always, if you need more detail on sales and payment, visit our FAQ under “Questions About Payment.”
Hopefully that answered most of your questions about the image Marketplace. If not, feel free to reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Happy uploading!
