I'm doing my part, John, small though it is.  I've commited to exclusive submissions.  Now, I (we) need some good news ... SALES!   :o

I know this takes time but patience is not a virtue in sales.  Hope WE hit the jackpot soon.

I've had enough sales on CC to request a payment. It was paid very quickly and accompanied by a nice email from John.

congrats all who are getting their payouts. this should keep John Griffin out of trouble , as he'll be too busy sending you ppl money.  ;D
The only time I got close to a sale was around the time I first joined John's co , and was offered $5 for my image entitled "Bird of fire". But I declined as I withdrew the image for some future exhibition here with a photo-co-op in this lovely city of Halifax.
Still ,no regrets (yet), as I still submit images to Cutcaster whenever I can.
I am rooting for John to succeed selling some images for all of us in 2009.
I sure like to buy him a pint of Guinness. So John, what are you waiting for?  ;)

I don't honestly grab how it works. Looks cumbersome to me. Do you really have to log in twice per day to check your "deals"? What if you log in just now and then? Designers are impatient and want the image now. Can't sales just be automatic?

the sales are automatic but they also have the option to bid if they don't want to pay what the artist is asking.

Mine was automatic

No need to login.  I was notified immediately by email when a bid was posted.  I suppose it could be a problem if you aren't near your computer or a blackberry?

I had forgotten it worked like that.. I am not sure what email I used.. or if it is one I check. LOL I need to look because I imagine you get a email if someone bids on it. Cant I just say yes to all of the offers? LOL

I live most of the time in a semi-war zone with 60% poverty (<3 $ daily). Walking around with a blackberry is nice for Obama in the White House, but not exactly clever in a place like the Bronx  ;D
I just hope on the automatic thing. Can't imagine that a designer with an hourly wage that is a multiple of the bargains he could make (a few dollars) would put time in dealing.

i suppose that's one way to grab a sale. you should suggest this to John Griffin. like maybe a checkbox, accept reasonable bids, or something like that. usually the bid is for 5 dollars, which isn't bad compared to other sites.

Isn't that the best case?  He just pays your asking price and moves on ... just like at most other sites.

I've been uploading like a banshee - 1800 live so far, but no bids or sales just yet.  It's only been a couple of weeks, though.  I'm sure we'll all be seeing some action soon enough.

Congratulations! :)

I have yet to make a sale there but I like the site and will stick with it and these news are encouraging.

Update: just checked my email used for CC and discovered I had 3 automated sales too this month. Have to add I only started uploading during the New Year recess. I also should add those shots didn't sell anywhere else and that they are totally atypical for me, a food shot, go figure. The percentage of 40% turns off a bit but hopefully they can make up by volume...

John apparently digged into a new customer base. Whatever, keep the sales coming. Better 40% of many than 70% of nothing.

Business is booming ... images are selling everywhere.  Just had two more at Cutcaster and an EL at DT.  This is starting to feel like a JOB.   ::)



Plus a portrait of the rider. 

Thanks, John, for leaving the door open long enough for my foot to get in.   ;D

I hope it won't be like Mostphotos, YAY and Zymmetrical. The first months those sites sell well. Then when they hurrayhs go all over the forums and the blogs, the crowd and the volume uploaders get in and the site dies for the first mice, as the number of buyers doesn't catch up at the same pace.

Thanks for the encouragement.  I too hope the site grows and drags us "mice" along with it.  I believe there are several "big cats" on board.  Isn't that how the buyers are attracted to new sites?
