When do I earn from my sales?

When you sell your photos through Twenty20, your payment will be deposited into your PayPal once a month. We pay out commissions owed every month during the first week of the following month. 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 much do I earn? Photographers earn a 100% commission from winning 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!

    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.

    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.
