I received this email and I wonder if it is worth the effort. Earnings in advance !??

Sorry to bother you. I am
Ronan, an overseas operation specialist from 100wa team located in Shanghai, China. 100wa.com (http://100wa.com/en/) is an online marketplace for video effects and stock footage.

We are already experienced in running a royalty free music marketplace (http://100audio.com/en/). It is very successful, and many big companies in China cooperate with us.

Now we are wondering if we could have the honor to have you selling your works on 100wa.

*Earnings in Advance* We encourage new authors through our Earnings in Advance
campaign. You can get your future earnings (up to USD 3,000!) as long as you have uploaded a certain amount of items within the specified period. The uploader is very handy, and you start earning in no time.
More about earnings in advance: https://100wa.com/en/topic/1236863/

Our primary market is the Asian area, and the potential buying power is impressive. To help authors selling better we provide Chinese localization for titles, description and tags written in English. Also, we do the pricing for you, and it is pretty high. Authors can choose to be an exclusive, China-exclusive or non-exclusive provider, with an *80%*, *65%* or *50%* share of the sales.

We believe that your works will be popular on 100wa.com.

If you have any question, please feel free to let me know.

Follow the link they supplied and look at the numbers involved.

If you upload 675 clips within 20 days that are accepted, they will pay you $280.

That is about 30 CENTS per clip -- less than Shutterstock pays for photos, and about 1% of what I normally get for video clips.

And even then, that is only if those 675 clips are all accepted, and only if done so within 20 days.

Sounds like a sucker bet to me...

When someone uses such trickery to bring you in, I have very heavy doubts things will get better once they have my media.

Though I am curious how others here read this, I don't think it is a good gamble myself...

Oh yes, one more thing -- this is a ONE TIME "new contributor" payment.  You will not get advance payments after your first batch of submissions here.
