How do I participate in Pond5’s new licensing program?
No action is required on your part. The new licenses will automatically be available for all of your commercial video, images, illustrations, and Music, SFX, AE, and 3D files marked Select.
How do the Extended licenses make me more money?
Our new licenses offer you an entirely new stream of income previously unavailable on Pond5. By providing more indemnification and extra seats on all of your assets, we can attract larger, more frequent customers, giving you the opportunity to earn even more with every purchase. Along with these new offerings, our growing sales team can better serve these customers, and is completely dedicated to bringing you the business you deserve.
How can I calculate what I’m being paid?
Your revenue share is factored out of the Net Revenue for each sale. Net Revenue is the item sale price (which you set), plus the Extended License charge, minus a legal guarantee fee to cover our insurance costs for providing higher levels of indemnification, along with any discounts that may have been applied.
Where can I see how much I get paid?
You’ll be able to view license purchases in the same area as the rest of your sales. Once you’re logged in, access your payment history via the My Financials tab from your Dashboard.
How will I get paid?
You’ll still be paid the same way as you are currently — nothing has changed here. Payments are made collectively on the 15th of every month, via the payment system you’ve chosen as your preferred method. (Our $25 minimum payment still applies.)
