    Hey all,

    I was wondering if anyone had heard of or tried Clickasnap? It's something I stumbled upon the other day and I'm pretty skeptical about it.

    Apparently they are trying to change the way that photographer share and get paid for their photography. Something to the tune of the more views you get, the more advertising revenue they get, then at the end of the week they split that revenue with you 50/50.

    I think it might be a good idea, however, like I said I am skeptical, but I have signed up and popped a few photos on there so we will see.

    There isn't much info anywhere online though.

    Anyway, here is my profile and the website if you wanna check it out!

    Advertising... No thanks. I use ad blockers.

    ?????? I don't understand what your point is here (but at my age I am understanding less and less!)

    The point is, I won't subject others to what I won't tolerate myself.
    I use my own website that is ad free rather than post on FB or Flicker or any ad site.

    An interesting concept to say the least and possibly a bit more refined than those "Granny looks 20 whilst she's really 65 find out how" pages that are all about ad bait. Sadly I suspect that it will be a bit like micro stock in that you will need a HUGE library to make any meaningful income.

    Red flags - who owns the site? is it a registered business? is the owner in the UK? I don't see an address or phone number - the only way to get ahold of anyone seems to be an onsite contact form.

    Did you click on the black circle with the i and look at the FAQs? I don't see any Terms & Conditions (looks like that might be it) so can't tell what site users are allowing 'someone' (whoever owns the site) as far as usage of photos.

    And under FAQ look at 'My views and my payments don't match up properly'; then read 'Advertising with us' - it says the average time spent looking at a photo is 4 seconds. The site only pays for your photo if the view lasts 5 seconds. So how many views could you get that won't be paid??

    It gets worse - read 'How Much Do I Get Paid?' Minus 'operating expenses' and the 50/50 sharing etc. the site can't tell you how much you'd actually get...

    It seems like the site can make advertising money without having to actually pay out much money. It says you have to make at least $25 worth of views to receive a payment. But how much is one 5 second view?? And it says 'currently set' at $25, how would you know if that amount is raised for you to be issued a payment?

    And your photo is lovely, it's a shame to waste it on this. I'd think too about not providing identifying information like the name of the horse when you don't know where the photo will end up.

    Ad Blocker enabled
    We are not google, YouTube or Facebook, neither are we a multi billion pound corporation. What we are trying to do is enable content creators (which could be you one day) to get paid a decent amount of money for their work, and a lot of their income is reliant on our advertising. Every endeavour on this site is made to keep our adverts friendly.

    However, if you must use an adblocker we would appreciate a 10pence payment (£0.10) for 24 hours access which will cover all the costs associated with your visit. Of course, you can easily not pay this and keep your ad blocker on, but if you yourself ever create content for the Internet and wish to earn money from it, remember where the majority of that income comes from ;)

    Thank you and we hope you enjoy the content on the site!

    I get ads on every news site and just about every other site so don't pay them any attention. The photo of the horse and dog is very good, I like it.
