Contributor Earnings Schedule
NZstockphotos Photographers earn a massive 50% every time one of their images is licensed. If you are GST registered, your earnings will include GST (50% of the GST-inclusive credit value of the licence). If you are not GST registered, your earnings will be GST exclusive (50% of the GST-exclusive credit value of the licence). The more images you upload to NZstockphotos and the more popular your images are, the more money you earn!
How We Calculate Earnings
For files licensed using NZstockphotos Credits, the contributor's royalty is applied to the net price of NZstockphotos credits used to license a file. NZstockphotos Credit prices vary depending on when they were purchased (as our prices change over time) and how many were purchased at once (as we discount bulk packages).
Each image will have differing sizes and corresponding prices (credit pricing). You will therefore receive 50% of the image price.
How to claim
Firstly you will need a valid Paypal account. Also ensure that under the Contributor Settings portion of the Edit Details page your commission payment method is set to Paypal (Edit button on right hand side of the page).
On or about the 30th or 31st of each month, Contributors with a commission balance of $100 NZD or more will be automatically paid their balance amount into their Paypal account.
You are able to see your earnings balance and from which images you have earned this money, on the View Sales page associated with your account.
