How much does it cost to join?
It is completely free to join. All features are avaliable at no cost, feel free to upload as many or as few photos as you wish.
What is the commission?
The commission paid is 80% of the mark-up value.
Example: If the base price of a print is $10.00 and you mark-up the photo $40.00 to sell it at a final price of $50.00, a
commission of $32.00 would be earned by the photographer (80% of $40.00).
When and how do I get paid?
Upon reaching the minimum $50.00 balance you will be able to request payment. Payments are sent out on the 15th
of each month in the form of a cheque or PayPal.
How long until my images are assessed?

How does “Photography for Cause” work?
Photography for cause is a great way to contribute back to a number of great causes. We support charities including
Children’s Wish Foundation, Breast Cancer Research Foundation and World Vision to name a few. Upon uploading
your photography you can select if you would like to contribute your commission on desired photographs. You can
select as many or as few as you would like. You are also given the option to choose where the funds will go for each
photo or leave it open for the purchaser to decide.
