Whatever your video sells for, we split video license fee with you 50/50.
We pay our members via their PayPal email address.
Depending on who purchased your video and how it was used will determine when you get paid. It's hard to predict how popular your video will be, our buyers are searching all the time and it could be purchased several times over.
We recently sold a video that originally was uploaded over four years ago – so you never know when your video will be in demand and what a buyer is looking for.
How much will I get paid?
It depends on how your video is used. Typically if your video sells you'll earn around £25-100, however, if it is really popular it is possible to earn over £1000.
There are several ways your video might be used:
Direct sale: A website wants to use your video for a set period of time, depending on where it is placed and how long they want to use it, you could earn anything from £25 to £1500.
For example, if it is placed on Facebook, payments are typically around £25 (note: Facebook payments aren't based on views as brands/ companies aren't making money through advertising on Facebook).
Our most common direct sales include The Sun, The Dodo, National Geographic, and Associated Newspapers Ltd (The Daily Mail).
Ad / Revenue share: A website may use your video and pop advertising around it to generate money. Newsflare will share the amount of money generated with you.
Depending on how popular your video is and how long it's in demand you could earn £5-200 per month. Once your balance is more than £10 we'll attempt to make payment to your PayPal account.
The table below outlines the payment terms for our biggest partners that we work with:
|MSN||60 days following month-end|
|Yahoo!||60 days following month-end|
Also, in order sell your video as widely as possible around the world we work with the Associated Press, who license Newsflare video via their Video Hub. We have also partnered with Reuters, to increase your chances of selling a video. Please note, that AP declares video sales monthly and Reuters report to us quarterly, so your payments might take some time to be processed.
TV Production: Television production teams contact us to help them find clips to make a show.
For example, Channel 4 produced "Britain's Wildest Weather" using Newsflare member videos. Everyone who had their video featured received a payment depending on how many seconds their clip was used in the show.
YouTube Monetisation: We can arrange for YouTube to allow advertising around your video. The amount of money earned will depend on the number of times the video has been viewed and what ads are placed around it and if the viewer has watched your video for long enough for them to claim advertising money from the brand. See How to make money from YouTube for more information about requesting this to be set up for you.
Facebook: A number of our partners express an interest in licensing a video by downloading it first, without licensing. If the partner decides to publish your video on their Facebook page, they'll pay a one-off license fee, which allows them to use your video for a set period of time.
Typically, we'll receive payment from the partner 60-90 days later which we'll pay to you shortly after. Our biggest Facebook partners we work with include, LADbible, UNILAD, and New Tang Dynasty.
Once your balance is more than £10 we'll attempt to make the payment to your PayPal account.
Brands and Agencies: If a brand like your video it could be used in a campaign online, on social media or even TV. Depending on where the brand chooses to place the campaign, and how long the advert will run, it will determine how much you would be paid for the video but this can range from £100s and even into the £1000s.
When will I get paid?
We pride ourselves in delivering speedy payments to our members. Typically once we receive payment, you'll get it within 24 hours, so long as your balance is over £10.
Monthly tally: Each month we tally up the amount owing and at the beginning of the month if your video has sold we'll send you a statement with your payment amount.
At the point of sale/confirmation: For a direct sale we'll let you know straight away that someone has purchased your video, we'll then send you payment within 24 hours. For something like a video production often we'll only get confirmation that your video has been included a few days before it goes live on TV, once we get confirmation we'll let you know to expect to see it on the program and when to expect payment.
Why haven't I been paid?
If we've sent you notification of payment pending it is likely the payment needs to be claimed/ retrieved from your PayPal account.
Please see How to manage your PayPal payment for more information about collecting your payment.
What happens if I don't earn £10 or more
We'll keep adding payments to your balance until you hit £10, then we'll make a payment to you via PayPal. Any balance earned over 12 months that hasn't been paid out will expire.
