It's quite common to see custom clips in girls' stores. I wish a custom guy would be pissed because I left a clip in my store *handwaves* He got what he payed for what you do with the clip after is your business. He has no right to complain. Custom and exclusive are not the same thing. He is entitled to a custom clip, doesn't mean others can't watch it. It's in a public store. I would not worry about it, at all.
I just got my 10th clip up to open my store and posted the link on my twitter last night, when I woke up this morning I already have 2 clips sold! I like this hehe. Question, can we post a link back to our cam site and amazon wishlist at the top banner?
I think I remember seeing something on C4S that said we can post links and banners and stuff on our store but I could be wrong. My store isn't live yet as I don't have 10 clips yet.
Yes you can post links but they won't be live for 30 days (sucks!)
Honestly my custom clips are the ones that sell the best. They don't generally care that your using other peoples names. Course alot of my clips are based on characters (my sissys) such as trixie monica tina
And they get caught up in the story line like...what's she gonna be told to do next so they buy it.
As for it being fair to the guy who requested it weather it gets resold or not I just follow this rule....A custom clip to me isn't priced any different than any other clip. They are well aware it will be resold multiple times.
If they do not want it to be sold I consider it an exclusive clip and charge them 100 dollars per video.
I also do not let the original person who requested it pay me on clips4sale.So that I get the full amount of money for making it. Generally they pay me directly using other methods,and once they have paid and recieved it then I upload it onto clips4sale for everyone else to buy it.
Check this out if your in need of some video or phone scripts
These are good for clips4sale videos possibly even phone sex if your more of a storyteller.

Most girls sell clips at $5-$10/min regardless of the content (nudity, sex, etc). For most of these guys, what you're doing is equivalent to sex. (Know faaaarrr too many fetishists to think otherwise.) C4S is known for not doing well with vanilla hardcore clips, so don't think that just because you're not talking it in the ass that it isn't worth a mark-up.
As far as reselling customs, you legally own the copyright to the material. Unless the guy wants to purchase the copyright off of you (re: 'Exclusive') then you can resell it without any issues. Most girls will post the clip in the their store at the price that the guy was quoted, and then they'll mark it down to something more reasonable after he's bought it.
And I'd take advantage of posting your links in your newsletter as it goes to all the people who've bought from you previously (unless they choose to opt out). Nothing like targeted marketing!
When you sign up and it says "Contact Name"... is that your REAL name? omg such a newb question lol
EDIT: Nevermind. I'm still living with my parents, and getting my hands on a utility bill would be impossible. C4S will have to wait.
What is this newsletter? I can see the email button but it only says there are 6 addresses i can contact??
I'm confused about the minimum payout. Obviously I set mine at the lowest possible option, but the first two options on the drop down list have asterisks * next to them. What does that mean? I've got my payment option set to check, what's the minimum for those?
The cheques are in US $ that we receive here in the UK.
So you have to factor in the charge from your bank (I think Nationwide charge between £5/£7) and the exchange rate.
At the moment,with the fees taken out,you'd get around £90 for the minimum payout of $150
it the guy wants an exclusive clip, make him pay extra...
I will start doing this soon.
I will charge $75 custom , $100 exclusive custom
However,I noticed that the cheques come super quick from them-I'm pretty sure just a few days after the money goes from your account. And Nationwide tends to process my cheques within 5 days.
To be honest-I'm used to it,as I worked for NF for so long,the only option to the UK was cheque,they paid once a month-it took around 3 weeks to get the cheque,then,quite often,my old bank took a month to process the payment
So I can deal with waiting. Obviously not good though if you're relying on a payment and wanting it asap!
Yes i think your fee is $20
In the U.S., they charge a $20 fee if you select wire transfer but not for ACH (bank draft/direct deposit type thingie). So if you don't want to pay the $20 for the federal reserve/within a day transfer to your account, just pick ACH option and enter your bank info, and it'll take a bit longer to deposit into your account from their bank than a wire transfer, but no charge.
Last night I recorded multiple separate clips for a custom request that I had to buy a few special supplies for, everything looked all good and I checked my focus/light/settings, then when finished I checked and the picture was great but the sound was crap. I'd somehow not noticed that the mic sound settings were changed to use my shitty laptop microphone instead of my C910 mic, so I was talking at my tripod with the cam on it while being sound-recorded by the POS laptop mic.
Then I play it back, thinking I'm all hot sh*t, and all you could hear was hissing from my laptop cooling fan and the ticks and pops of the mic feedback. lol!
Recorded lots of clips and never had that happen til now
What a fail! Next time I'll check ALL my settings twice, instead of having to make another trip to the store in the middle of the night to get new supplies to redo the clip. Derp!

I finally got off my ass and made enough clips to have 10, I have 11 now. Do I need to contact them and let them know or will my store automatically be activated? I regret not doing it sooner as I opened my store up about a month or so ago T_T
