If a buyer picks up your video to show on their Facebook page, the buyer will pay a one-off licence fee, this means we've agreed with them to use your video for a set period of time.
You'd expect to be paid around £25 if a buyer picks up your video to play on their Facebook page.
Is payment from Facebook based on views?
We have good news! As of September 2018 if you spot your video on Newsflare's Animal Antics page then there's every chance you may receive payment from Facebook views. There are a number of limitations as to why your video may not receive ads (length of the video, suitability for adverts and if adverts were placed around your content). It's early days and we are due to receive further information in the coming weeks. As soon as we know from Facebook, we will let you know!
I've spotted my video on another page that isn't Newsflare. Will l get paid based on views for this?
Not yet, sadly. Facebook is slowly rolling out monetisation across some key pages, the brand/ page it is displayed on won't be receiving any money from Facebook Advertising.
This means the money you receive isn't based on the number of views the video receives on Facebook - if it is viewed 10 times or 100,000 times the amount you receive will be the same as our clients currently pay a flat fee.
While Facebook views aren't always an accurate account of who has seen a video (things like autoplay count as a view even if someone didn't watch the video), if the views are ticking up through shares and posting on brand sites it is good news - it's more likely that it'll get picked up and licenced elsewhere.
