Payment for your image sales
So you’ve been selling your images and you’ve reached the threshold for a payout…then what?
I would recommend before you get to this point you sort this out. I would also recommend opening a PayPal account if you haven’t already got one. It can take a week or so to open an account and complete the security verification process.
Once you’ve opened your PayPal account, log into your stock library accounts and update your payment details. That way if they have an automated payment schedule you won’t lose out.
Here’s a list of who pays and when:
Shutterstock: automatically pays out once you reach a threshold of $100 after the 15th of each month
123rf: automatically pays out once you reach a threshold of $100 after the 1st of each month
iStockphoto: manually request a payout, minimum balance of $100
Dreamstime: manually request a payout, minimum balance of $100
Fotolia: sales are paid as credits, once you’ve earned 50 credits you can request a payout
Good luck with your sales.
