Using Paypal and Moneybookers to get paid

We have three ways of paying out users of which two, Paypal and Moneybookers, I will outline below. The other option is payout by check.

The Paypal solution of payment is used on the Cutcaster web site for three reasons:

  • To allow users to buy images or photos by using their Paypal account
  • To pay commissions to photographers who earn money selling photos through Cutcaster
  • To allow users to get paid cash from affiliation revenue.

    In these three cases, customers and photographers must have a Paypal account. Below we will outline how to open a Paypal account.

    Paypal is a free solution, which allows users to transfer money to anyone with an email address or securely purchase items from internet sites (for example, purchase any photographs from Cutcaster). In addition, Paypal customers may receive payments to their Paypal account (This could include commission payments to photographers or money earned from referring buyers and sellers to Cutcaster). At anytime, Paypal customers may transfer money to their regular bank account without any Paypal fees for sums of more than $100 and a $1 fee if less than $100.

    Paypal is a subsidiary of eBay, one of largest companies on the Internet.

      Hey, John,

      I was impressed by the prompt, efficient help you offered when I emailed you so I spent the afternoon reading your blog from the beginning. Kind of cool watching you grow your company from its inception. Since photography is a subsidiary interest for me, I appreciated the opportunity to learn so much about the microstock possibilities.

      Btw, congratulations on your engagement.

      I look forward to working with Cutcaster. My best, Joan Reeves
