Hope dashed at the first hurdle!

I was intrigued to find one of the first picture 'asks' I saw was for a sunlit Orchid - something I have a fair few of in my catalogue :) ! I thought I'd register to see how the process went, but failed on finding that the site only pays US bank accounts :( . Perhaps they will expand wider afield later on.

The US is always first but I imagine this idea will spread because it eases both the buyer's and seller's lot.

Prohibited Uses of the Selected Submissions by the Buying Customer

The Selected Submissions cannot be:

redistributed, syndicated, resold, sublicensed, or placed online in an FTP or downloadable format;


So pretty hard to use for web use then, and people looking for images are already wanting images for use on Social media.
