Photographers get an 80% gross payout on each transaction once they're a partner! To become an official partner, a photographer would have to complete one successful transaction through the app at a 50% payout. This helps cover the on-boarding costs, background checks, offsets our refund risks, troubleshooting for first time users, first time deposit account verification, and other administrative costs. Partner status with an 80% payout begins on transaction number 2 and every subsequent transaction thereafter.
Making sure our photographers get paid in a timely and secure manner is our top priority. We have a flawless reputation on timely payments and expect it to continue. The payments actually bypass us while held at Braintree (a PayPal company) and go directly from our customers to Braintree, to your assigned account via direct deposit. This is to ensure your compensation with security and confidence. : )
