it also says a sliding scale between 30-44% but with no explanation anywhere on the site as to how this works or what increments are involved

If you mean the page (when you're not logged in) here: http://www.pixmac.com/sell-photos

That just says: 30% for non-exclusives and 45% for exclusive content. The words "starting at" mean basically that there are situations (such as the photographers that came before March 2009) that you can get more. And this is also connected to Affiliate program (best deal as far as I know) where you can get 25% + 25% more if you bring either the buyer or the photographer to us. So in the best situation the math is done like this:

Exclusive picture sold for $10
- you get 45%, 55% remains
- if the buyer is your affiliate, you get 25% out of those remaining 55%
- if you also have the author as an affiliate, you get another 25% out of those 55%

So finally you can end up earning 72,5% of the sale (45% + two quarters of the 55%), while Pixmac gets only 27,5%. Sure that situation happens once in a lifetime. More common, if you're with us for a longer time and have non-exclusive pictures, you can still get 62,5% (50%+12,5%) if the sale goes just over one your affiliates.

And guys, if you have any other questions, send them to me. I'm writing a blog post named: "A way to satisfy photographers?" so anything painful can be answered there from the other side :-)

hi zager.

do we here know your t&c better than you? seems so.
take a look at your t&c!
here is the link:
newbielink:http://www.pixmac.com/infocenter/termsandconditions [nonactive]

at "royalties for contributors":

Quote
The royalty for images uploaded after April 1st 2009 downloaded with the non-exclusive license is between 30% and 44% for the contributor, and between 45% and 60% for images downloaded with the exclusive license - in both cases depending on volume of sales.


i would call this sliding commissions.
so in which case do i get 30% of the non-exclusive and when 44?
