How does it work? - Our Commission Scheme
When do I get paid?
- If you want to showcase and sell flat panoramas all you have to do is signup for a Basic Account and upload your photos.
- When a client contacts us with a request we take only 20 per cent commision from every successfuly closed stock photo request and you keep 80 per cent of the sale price of your images. Fair, isn't it?
- In case the client licenses several images for a particular project and decides to have only one contact, that's World Panorama Stock for licensing, our commission is 30 per cent to cover our expenses.
- Our commission is 35 per cent of the Photography and Licensing fees (expenses excluded) if you are hired for an assignment via the WorldPanoramaStock.com website. A Photographer - Agency Contract for Assignments must be signed before releasing details of Client.
- We have no set fees for images. Buyers looking for images can search our online panoramic library and if they find the suitable image, just quote the budget available and you as the owner of the photo decide if this is acceptable for you or not.
- We recommend to use FotoQuote Pro or Photo Price Guide to have an idea how much can you get for licensing your images for different use and different sizes. The price can range from $150 to $8-900 or more depending on many factors and your negotiation. WPS will not be involved and will not intend to interfere with the negotiations.
- You are free to enter into agreement with other agencies since WPS does not require exclusivity from you, but we can help you a lot to stay above the line >>>
- Approval of your account and submitted images is not automatic. According to our Terms >>> your account needs to be approved and your uploaded images will not appear on the public site automatically since we will review your submissions and reserve the right to refuse submissions and delete queued images.
- Please allow us 24 to 48 hours for the approval process.
- Categories are based on geographical areas:
Continent > Country > City / Region. Currently we will not go deeper than city / region level. Please note that photographers can not create sub-categories so please let us know your needs on sub-categories and we will create them before you upload your images.
- It is a Fair Play Game: We keep contact with potential buyers, distribute photo requests to you.
- After you agreed with the picture buyer you send an electronic copy of your invoice and when you have received your payment, notify us so that we issue an invoice of our commission.
- Currently we accept payment via PayPal. The account to send your payment is (without spaces, of course).
What are the requirements?
- In order to qualify you would need a minimum two years of proven record in photography, including panorama creation.
- Your work should be displayed on the internet for review. Please include a link to your portfolio website in your bio when you register.
- Your equipment needs to be a professional medium format or a minimum of six megapixel DSLR camera. Previous editorial publications are preferred but not a must.
- We accept submission for HIghRes, high quality panoramic (medium and large format and 360 degree digital) images only.
- Minimum requirement for your original, High-Res images for an A4 size editorial horizontal is around 4,000 pixel wide at 300dpi, but WPS has a plan to somehow revolutionize the industry and motivate buyers and editors to use fold-outs for our panoramas at least in magazines. In case of a foldout calculate with around 7-8,000 pixels as a minimum.
- You are requested to upload JPG files only (compression qual.: 90-95). Recommended color space is sRGB. Max width for horizontal is 1,300 px, but not less than 1,200px for optimal performance and 800px for vertical.
- All uploaded mages must have unique Title, Description and must be properly keyworded.
- If you upload a series of images with a same theme, please add different and relevant Title to each or they will be considered duplicated content by Google and will be penalized by the search giant.
- The stock business is a numbers game: the more images you have on our site the greater the chances of those images being seen and licensed. If you have experience with other stock services you know that it takes a minimum of one to two years after signing with an agency before you can expect to see significant results and regular income. The reasons are simple:
- you'll need to build up a significant file of high quality images with WPS,
- it takes time for photo buyers, editors to select and purchase, but only images relevant to their need will sell. And it will not happen overnight.
