1What is Photochain?
Photochain is a stock image platform which has the goal to revolutionise the stock image market by very low 20% commission and allowing the photographers to set their own price.
2How does Photochain make use of Blockchain Technology
Yes - the immutable and public database is used by Photochain uniquely to store licensing and copyright information.
3What Products and Services does Photochain offer?
In the first version (Minimum Viable Product), the Photochain platform will offer only a limited set of services which are required for uploading, managing and buying images including invoicing and related financial transactions. More services will follow in the future as the platform grows.
4What license types do you support?
Royalty free license: "pay-one time license", for more information check our Terms and Conditions.
5What types of image categories do you offer?
Any category - we strive to offer a wide range of categories. According to the Photochain T&C we do not accept any images with pornography, violence and other related subjects.
6What is the financial model behind Photochain?
Our model is very simple and transparent: 20% commission and 80% earnings of very image sell for the photographer. There are no rules what price the photographer sets.
7How can I pay for purchased image?
Any type of credit card supported.
8How can I use a purchased image?
All images usable according to Photochain EULA.
9What are the requirements to join and sell images on Photochain?
First you need an approved account by registering and identifying yourself through our simple and quick KYC process. Then of course you need good quality of images with a minimum resolution of 1000 x 1000 px. That’s it. The challenge will be to set you own price - but experience will help you to get the right price. We plan in the future to determine the right price with supporting tools.
10How does a typical image upload process work?”
Our simply process allows you to mass-upload your images, automatically check them on quality and allowed content and categorisation. Then you need to set your own price and submit for approval. Once approved, your images will be online (with a watermark) for sale.
11How does a photographer gets paid?
Nothing simpler than that! Once your personal account (with your earnings) reaches more than 50 EUR Photochain will automatically transfer the funds to your bank account. Alternatively you can request at any time your funds to be transferred manually.
We are now featured on Photochain.We have created an account and are available at Photochain!
A few things to keep in mind:
Enter mobile number without + country number.
VAT number is your Org.number it is written with SE at the beginning and ends with 01. (applies to Sweden)
You can find the IBAN number on your bank's website, here you can also calculate the IBAN number on Swedbank (without logging in)
We have looked around and the size and price follow each other as a rule, pictures in 3000x5000 about 5 € larger 5000x 8000 about 50 €.
But it is up to you to set the appropriate price, later a price setting help will probably be in the style of what I have seen at Booking, where we rent out.
One thing that you must specify is - Portfolio Link * The info is then to your website for Photochain to see your job.
