Congrats! In all the years I've been a contributor I must say that it's great to see a 100% commission paid out. Is this business model sustainable for both VB and the contributor in the long run? I've no idea but it was still good to see :)

Ok, this would be the last time I show-off my download, I'm happy with VB performance so far.

Why are they withholding tax? Are you in the USA? I have a few test files there and also had a sale. They took out taxes even though I submitted my W9.

Congrats on the sales.

I think you are one of those big major producers.

had my first sale as well.

However, taxes have indeed been withheld even though I submitted my tax form. I have sent an e-mail to support because no way I'm going to pay taxes if I don't have to.

Completely agree.

Sorry for the delay here guys; been a really busy couple of weeks.

The general question/concern that seems to percolate through this thread is, how is our model sustainable? It's a fair question. We've always been a purely subscription-based business, so we've always been fully supported by our membership fees. The marketplace cost us the time to build it, and a little bit of storage/data space (though most of that was already in place), but that's about it. Since we have been and always will be supported by our membership fees, we don't need to take a cut on sales from our marketplace, which is an added component of a buyer's membership. And if we don't need to take a cut, then we have the unique opportunity to give you as the artists 100% of the commission.

We knew there would be some natural skepticism when we announced 100% commission, and we also knew that if we were to make any change in the future, the only way the commission could have logically gone was down. So we made sure our model was fully sustainable before building it. We won't ever lower the commission rate, and the ball will always be in our court to uphold that.

Addressing the more recent questions about tax withholdings: this is a bug. We're storing payments correctly, they're just not being displayed properly on your earnings tables. Our developer in charge of this functionality is on a much-needed vacation for a few days, but this should be cleaned up before the end of the week. Sorry for the confusion!

I haven't jumped into this one yet. Their business model seems illogical to me.

I am glad you guys get sales.If this keeps up maybe us non believers will jump ship eventually.
But for the time being i've decided -and thats something propably only my shrink can explain-
to continue my uploads at dissolve (yeah i know) and clipcanvas.Yes, clipcanvas,despite the fact that they have sold nothing for me in 6 months.
Denial perhaps?
Anyway....

I wonder what I'm doing wrong. I UL'd the top-performing 20% of my port (which means only about 100 files, granted, but the ones that have sold the best) -- and I've yet to get a single sale.  :'(  Maybe if I UL the other 80% ...?

Good to hear. I just noticed the tax amount has been removed and I'll receive the full sum.

No worries.  It's good not to have everybody uploading to VideoBlocks.  Less competition = more sales for us!!

I decided to give them a go and started uploading video today.  If the business model works out all for the better.   Wish them success!

I think everybody will be jumping in when they hear about prompt payment made on 5/15.  There will be a stampede at the gate!!

No need to be vitriolic.After all the sales you make at vb you (propably) lose from somewhere else and i wish in the long run that doesn't come back to bite us in the ass.

I had the same concern and skepticism as everybody here still have.  I think it'll all come down to how much you get from a single sale.  If a site sells your clip for $80 but only give you less than $25, it's better of making $47 for the single sale despite it was sold for much less for $49 vs $80.  So, I'm waiting to see the payment will be made promptly as promised on 5/15 to my paypal account.  It'll be all good after that.

Why are the supporters of this agency so adamant to prove to everybody they get sales and to get everyone to submit to them? Why the risk to delude your own sales?

Good point.  I actually don't want more people uploading there.

I sold another clip today, but all 4 clips I sold so far are the clips I've never sold on other sites.  That's interesting!
