"We hope contributors upload their best work to superimagemarket.com. And we do not want contributors upload lots of similar photos."

If I was going to upload 10k images for an advance of $.10 each, it would absolutely be the bottom of my portfolio barrel, similar or no. There hasn't been a startup in years with the clout and funding to earn a decent return for their artists. That train left the station years ago. I can't think of any reason, why anyone would upload their best works to SIM.

So even if you snagged a group of people willing to do this, the model guarantees a set of images that no one wants to buy and therefore it will fail. So even if I had 10,000 images that has never sold (and if I dig through archived rejects, that is entirely possible) I would get a  one time only payment of $1,000. And that is if I am understanding the ToS correctly and everything is on the up and up.

The problem for you and the other startups who troll this forum every few months is that most of us have been doing this for years. We have seen dozens of you come and go, and many of us have wasted a lot of time and effort in the hopes that somebody has a winning formula. So far no one has. And this one doesn't sound like on either.

Maybe someone else can refresh my memory, but there was another one a few years ago that paid us to upload. Reason I can't remember them is they did nothing and finally went away.

Good luck and I hope you make it, but it's a no for me.

iStock did it with logos - paid logo artists IIRC $5 per accepted logo, then aborted the logo offering.

I think there was another micro too, but can't remember which.

The storage fee is just completely weird. It makes it hard to take you serious.

albumo paid for uploads, as did fotoarabia -- neither produced any decent sales, but they did honor their promise - and no one ever asked for 10,000 Images before!  what's to keep them from accepting 9999 and then rejecting everything else?

 I uploaded a few dozen images 4 months ago but have yet to get many views, and zero sales

I have seen that SIM makes invoices with adresses of buyer and contributor.

Whats with the EU-VAT on superimagemarket.com?
If they are only a marketplace every european contributor has to pay VAT for every single buyer from europe in there homecountries.

They will say, but i think SIM cannot make invoice on behalf of another company. They will give you invoice from their own company and you will not pay VAT, as they are outside EU.

They say that they are only a marketplace and the contract is direct between buyer and contributor.
No matter where is SIM homecountry europeans have to pay vat for every single european buyer in his homecountry.

Bye bye sim!
