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.

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