automated fashion.

Sounds like a very promising partnership! 

I would be interested to know what the commission structure will be for sales through Pingg.  Hopefully the same as we are getting through sales directly on Fotolia...?

Congrats to Fotolia for pulling off yet another great marketing tie-in.
