    Default New feature to sell clips/pics to earn passive income

    For those of you who don't know I'm launching a marketplace for custom products. We've been fixing bugs and adding new features. Anyway, one new idea we had in addition to custom requests was to add a "store" option for providers that would allow them to charge for already made videos, picture sets, etc... Buyers just have to click the "buy now" button, and we would deduct the credits from their account and transfer the credits into the provider's account.

    The benefit of this would be you don't have to do any additional work once the file is there. You don't have to be online or email links once a purchase happens....One related featured we would add would be to allow providers to hand out "promo" codes which allow them to give out individual videos or picture sets as prizes without making the winner purchase credits (ie spend money). This way providers have flexibility. They can get people to purchase their content or use it as a way to host files as prizes or rewards.

    I think this might be a good idea, but I'm not on the "frontlines" like many of you are. So I want to hear why you wouldn't use this. I love how everyone on here is so honest so tell me what's wrong my idea, please

    Why would using clips4sale, kinkbomb, mediafire be better for you?

    Thanks!

    Niteflirt has something similar and it rocks. I think it would do very well.

    Awesome. thanks for the feedback. Do you know how much commission niteflirt takes for people who use their file sharing service? I want to come up with something fair/competitive...

    Niteflirt pays 70%. The problem there for videos is that they limit file size to 20mb, which doesnt cut it for HQ video.

    Thanks for the info. So it sounds like we should have a higher file size limit. 20 MB does not sound like a lot for any respectable video file.

    currently i have a ton of content i could sell, they are all avi files..
    i have to convert them( not good at it) and would love to sell them..
    got over 500 solo videos on a hard drive, collecting dust lol
    if ur site would not sell this as content to other sites.. and would clearly state that the content is not to be re-published... id use it!( i know this would not help much but who knows , it would scare some bad people away...lol)

    Im being asked every day if I got vids for sale and there is always the same problem...
    files too big... there is no preview of it... the buyer cant see it ( doesnt have the right decoders, etc etc)
    and,,, i dont want to use the megaupload site... lots of hackers on that site lol

    Yeah, we wouldn't own the content you upload to sell or re-sell somewhere else (that's just shady). We also currently allow people to choose how they want their products to be used, mainly, commercial or personal. This is more for custom work if for example someone wanted you to do a video to help advertise their website.

    From what your saying it sounds like following are the most important:
    • Site wouldn't own the content
    • Have some kind of transcoding (meaning converting your file format into multiple other formats)
    • Have a preview of some sort


    Does that sound about right?

    I can understand not using megaupload, but why not something like clips4sale? I know that's really popular...

    Haha, thanks. I just took a screen cap of one of the interview videos I did. It's way not professional. I'm not that photogenic as you girls here

    Exactly those 3 points...

    cpli4sale.. that homepage gives me a headache..
    i understand they need all that text for SEO purposes but its just toooo much!... doesn't look like a nice clean site to me, i feel i would not even know where my videos are located... I dont like they have what they call "studio" that can be confusing for my members who know im not a studio model lol...
    would be nice if ur site would be created specifically for webcam models...

    ^^ awesome. Thanks a bunch for the feedback. We definitely want to help webcam models. I'm hoping to hear back from other models to see if this is truly something they would want before we go out and implement it. (just want to know that if we build it someone will use it).

    So if anyone feel strongly either way feel free to share your 2 pennies.
