Hello All,

We are pleased to announce the integration of Payoneer into GL.  Many of our members have expressed interest in Payoneer, as they have had issues with Moneybookers or PayPal in certain countries.  Payoneer is one of the best payment options available, so this new integration will surely be a positive for many of our members.

For current members, getting Payoneer payments set up is quick and easy:

Step 1: Navigate to your Account -- Profile Page.  Scroll to bottom of page and select Payoneer for "Payment Method".  Press Update.
Step 2: A GL representative will manually approve your payment method change request.
Step 3: Check back later.  When you see Payoneer as your payment method, select "Sign up with Payoneer".  If you do not have an account already, please sign up.  If you do, you will be prompted to login to your existing account.  Once you sign up or log in, you are fully set up to receive Payoneer payments!
----------------

If you have any questions regarding our integration with Payoneer, please do not hesitate!

lol, selling images would be a prerequisite to get paid in the first place

Yes...sales are a prerequisite to receiving funds. individuals with sales on GL will be able to get paid with a new payment method if they choose.  For those who have no sales or low sales, they can still select this payment method for when they do cross the $50 payment threshold.

It's clear that some of our members will not have incredibly high sales counts.  In this forum, we are classified as a "low earner" at the moment.  We understand this, and in relation to the top earners, we are a low earner.  But there are still thousands of members who choose to work with us, who are getting sales, and who are pleased with our customer support.   

Each week we payout plenty of money to our contributors, some more than others based on the desire for their work.  By giving 40-52%, and allowing for a wide range of pricing, some sellers are getting paid very frequently. 

This post was regarding a payment method option that we are providing our sellers with, not about the sales count of any of our members.  Having said that, we are still working diligently on the site behind the scenes. Other agencies certainly have higher sales counts right now, but they are paying pennies per license sold, and are constantly making changes to their businesses that adversely affect contributors, while padding the agencys margins.  This is a constant slap in the face to contributors.  While it is taking us time to make significant change to GL, our intentions are to increase sales for our contributors, maintaining our slim margins, all while providing our contributors more control of how much they make per license sold.  When our ultimate plan comes to fruition and sales do increase, GL members will reap the benefits significantly more than they would at any other agency.

In these forums, every other post is titled "XYZ Agency Screwed me", "Disappointed with XYZ", "Down the Toilet", etc., so there is dissatisfaction with companies both large and small in the industry.  We are doing our best with the business we purchased. All we can do is continue with our internal plans and continue working hard on GL.  Adding a new payment method is one minor benefit for our current and future contributors.

I have around 5000 image to upload.
After upload i am forced to click on each image title.
I have to click the title and i have to click "submit".
Takes about 10 seconds for 1 image.
Total 13 hours only click "submit" "submit" "submit" "submit" "submit"
No way  ::)

Will you consider lowering the payout treshold?

« Reply #6 on: March 15, 2017, 16:19 »

No, $50 will remain the threshold.  We actually wanted to increase that when we took the site over, but upon feedback from members here, we decided to leave it at $50.

My sales with GL have dried up and that's worse than some of the really small sites.  Hope that changes soon or there will be no need to think about payouts.

yes, they have a upload limit and it is really pain for people with good quantity portfolio, they should remove it.

I have stopped to upload on GL for the 20 a day limit It is unmanageable!

At least could they make 600/month

20 Uploads per day is the starting upload limit.  Send us a private message with your account information and we will increase the limit if we can.  Not every request is approved for internal purposes.  We are a small team that manually approves each image, ensure titles, descriptions, and tags are correct, as well as ensuring image quality.  So to allow each member to upload 5,000 images in a given day would cause a major backup and slowdown in approval times.

Read better my post.
I never told about 5000 a day. I told about 600 a month, so not a daily limit but a monthly limit for the same number of images every month

20 a day are 600 a month, but uploaded in 30 times
Giving us, as default, the possibility to upload up to 600 a month (in one or more times), and then taking the time you need to review it, will not change a lot for you (on the contrary you will have the possibility to better plan and organize your work over a longer period), but it will make things very simpler for most of us.

We can't ask a new or small agency to take in more than they can properly review.  Hasn't blind crowdsourcing been tried enough by now? It's a dead end.

The problem isn't the time it takes to review, it's the time it takes to upload.  Photographers trying to sell online (stock, or art) are being driven mad by tedious upload processes.  I could name a couple of 'art' sites where I signed up, then simply gave up after seeing the process to submit a single photo and make it available and discoverable.

How about a way to submit an entire portfolio at once, to be reviewed and accepted when and if time permits?  The agency could sample the work and decide if it was worth going in and reviewing the whole thing.  It could be submitted on media, or via a cloud share.   I don't mind waiting a few months for review.  I do mind spending hours mindlessly checking the same boxes, over and over, on web pages.

Thank you all for your opinions and ideas.  Some very strong points have been made, and we will internally discuss the uploading process/limits in more detail.  I think we should be able to come up with a solution that works for us internally, and for our contributors to make for a more seamless process.

Great to know, I hope you will improve the email system too, I have sent emails regarding limits few times but never heard back.

Just wish I could see some sale here. Haven't had a sale in over a year with over 400 images on line.

Sorry but when the new people took over sales stopped immediately I haven't had a sale in 12 months! With over 1500 images

I'll never reach payout and if I delete the account GL keep the cash.

It's a no win situation
