First I'd like to thanks the moderators for allowing us to open a new thread and lock the former one which was more about getting a free responsive website with us than IndieBill in general. And IndieBill has changed a lot since then
At heart we're still proposing the same services though: 85% revenue share on your sales, no chargebacks and automatic content delivery. We're there to make it easy to sell adult content and services to your own audience, and we're still building / hosting free websites for our partners (some examples: www.aeriesm.com / www.nomercyformen.com / www.nikkigreenca.com / blancaamor.indie-boutique.com).
Below you will find all the information about IndieBill and us, Gérald and Ludovic, the two guys behind. Of course you're also more than welcome to go over IndieBill and drop us a line directly through the live chat so we can talk
It's organised in the below sections, simply scroll down if you seek to jump to some specific info.

II) Selling with IndieBill
III) Earnings (including earnings from referring other models)
IV) Payouts & payout methods (we now have a partnership with BoleynModels for daily pay!)
V) Getting a free responsive website with IndieBill
VI) IndieBill's business model (how we can offer 85% and protect from chargebacks)

VIII) Where IndieBill is going
I) Why IndieBill
At IndieBill, we believe there is something utterly wrong regarding how society and people in general consider adult entrepreneurs. We think they are mostly being hypocrite and are giving us all a hard time because they're globally inconsistent with themselves:
- They say it's not normal to earn a living with your body, and then just go along doing exactly the same thing - selling their brain and muscles to companies.
- They say everybody should have equal opportunities, and then slam their door in our faces, preventing us from opening bank accounts or accessing great tech.
- They say they're open-minded, and then try and tell us adult is not a legit business.
- They say it's a free world, and then try to force us to act in another way - like we don't know what we're doing, but they do.
When they’re done talking, they hop on on a porn site!
As a result, adult entrepreneurs cannot access much of the awesome tech available for developing their businesses. That’s breaking our balls. Big time.
There’s no valid reason why people building legal businesses should not be able to do so without lying to their business partners or relying on the same great tools as everyone else. There’s no valid reason why being an adult web entrepreneur should be a daily pain in the ass to get even the simplest things done, and we want to change that.
Changing things is always complex and very time-consuming, you can get lost in it. That’s why we’re purposely starting rather small: for now we want to build the best solution for you to sell directly to your audience.
We believe selling content and services for gift cards is a rather clunky process - too many manual operations -, and getting your customers to buy on sites paying 60% ain’t exactly fair either. We want you to be able to sell content and services simply by sharing links while getting a fair amount: your customers, your content, your money.
For now, IndieBill has been running well for 4 months and is growing (150 verified models). We'll keep making IndieBill better, scale it up and start tackling other issues as soon as we're ready.
II) Selling with IndieBill
IndieBill let anyone (18+) sell adult content and services just by sharing links. Unlike CCBill or Epoch, it's easy to get started:
--> IndieBill is free to use (no upfront cost, no hosting costs, no hidden costs),
--> it does not require you to have a company,
--> you can be approved within 24 hours,
--> there's no $500 to $1000 yearly registration fee
... and the revenue share - 85% - is just as high (customers pay a $0.95 fee per transaction though).
Creating payment pages is a very easy process (it takes about 20 seconds once you're familiar with it) and allow you to process payments for pretty much anything you need: videos, photosets, ZIP files, Skype shows, Snapchat, custom videos, phone sessions, receiving tips and so forth.
Payment pages are 100% mobile friendly. And the checkout process is super fast: we only ask for email & credit card credentials, the payment form is displayed directly for increased conversion.
For now we have 3 specific types of payment pages with a flow 100% adapted to what you're selling:
--> Page for selling videos (up to 15 GB)
--> Page for selling Skype shows
--> Page for selling Snapchat
The revenue share is always 85%, and you receive an email notification right after each sale featuring a recap as well as the email of your customer. In case you're selling a file, your customer can download it right after purchase (later on as well from his personal library of purchased content).
Unlike marketplaces, we never advertise anything to your customers - we don't try to get them buying from other models. We only resolve billing issues and ensure live support for them.
Please know that you can sign up to IndieBill with just an email at https://www.getindiebill.com/beta/signup and test our solution fully. Verifying your ID is only mandatory to actually start processing payments, all the rest works without it.
We're working very closely with all of our partners, try to always answer live on the support and solve issues the best we can. A few reviews have been posted about us on WeCamGirls if you'd like to have a look.
Your revenue share is of 85% of the price set, and customers pay an additional $0.95 service fee per transaction (not per content).
So for example, if you price a video $20, then your customers will pay $20.95 and you will earn $17.
Earnings are chargeback protected as long as you're making normal usage, meaning you will get your earnings fully once the sale has gone through. So far we haven't had the case of a model not making a normal usage and covered all chargebacks.
You can also earn money by referring other models to IndieBill. Once you're logged in simply click on your avatar at the top-right and then "Referrals" to get your special link.
You will earn 2% of the referred models earnings for a 12 months period. If you refer 10 or more, you will also earn 0.5% of the earnings of the models they themselves refer (pyramid scheme).
For example, if you refer 20 models who in turn refer 3 on average, then you'll be earning twenty times 2% and sixty times 0.5%. Assuming models earn $500 / month on average with us, that's $350 / month for you. About $4000 in a year of time.
