When do I earn from my sales?

Next payment: 11/12/2017 (PST)
(Last 2 payments: 9/12/2017 and 10/12/2017)

We send photographer payments to your PayPal account once every month. These payments include any commissions you've earned from photos sold since your last payout, along with any earnings not yet collected from the months prior.

When your photo sells through one of our partners, your payment will be deposited into PayPal at the end of each quarter (March, June, September, and December).

 

How do I get paid? If you haven't done so already, make sure to connect your PayPal email address to your Twenty20 account so that you can receive payments. 

How much do I earn? Photographers earn a 100% commission from winning Editor's Pick in photo challenges, and a ~20% commission on sales from subscription plans. We handle customer support, transaction costs, image curation & legal support (digital licensing). You simply need to add photos, enjoy exposure, and make money!

Help! What if I'm not receiving payments to my PayPal? If you've already connected your PayPal email to your Twenty20 account and still are not receiving payments on the scheduled payout dates, please contact PayPal's help center to sort out your PayPal account.

    Hi! I still don't understand this subscription plan thing. I've been notice about selling one of my images and it says by subscription. How's that? Is someone using my pics in a small format? why isn't much what I'm receiving?

    Amy, customers with subscription plans purchase your photos much more frequently than those who purchase a la carte. This means that although you make less per sale, you will make more sales — and more sales means more money over time. Every week we’re seeing more and more customers signing up for subscription plans, which means more frequent sales for you. The reason your earnings from a subscription sale is less money per sale is because subscription customers are more costly for us to support. Some customers prefer more assistance in the buying process. These customers purchase “full service” subscriptions. They receive purchase assistance from our sales team as well as ongoing help from our account management team. Providing this assistance helps you sell your photos to agencies or companies that wouldn’t purchase self-service, so you gain a wider audience and earn more income.

    I can't add new photos to my collections. Is there any limit per day?

    Hi Anna! There is not a limit per day. You should be able to add as many photos as you want to your collections at any time. If you are having trouble, please submit a request and we'll be happy to help!

    The above article states we are paid by the end of the month. Last month I received payment on the first, which wasn't a big deal. However, it is currently the 5th of the month and I still have not been paid.

    Hi Felipe, photographer payouts were initiated on the 8th and will be deposited no later than today, the 10th. Each time you make a sale, we also highlight the payout date. I appreciate your patience!

    Hi, I did not receive the money I made from selling my photos for months now. I created a request and got a promise that I should receive them this month, but again, nothing happened at all though my Paypal account is working and was added since day one of registering on Twenty20. Would you kindly resolve this issue?

    Hi @Malkova and @Mohamed. If you still have not received payments from us through your PayPal account and PayPal is available in your country, then this means there is an issue with your PayPal account. Our best advice would be to contact PayPal's help center directly to help resolve the issue.
