The Site offers a financial incentive to all Artists each month. Visits are automatically calculated by the Site and the totals are visible on the profile of each Photographer. Each (paying) User may visit each Model/Photographer once a day, and this visit will be automatically registered on the profile of the Model/Photographer, each time the User opens a content (video or album) created by the Model/Photographer.
The Monthly Reward is calculated thus: ShinyQueens.com website monthly revenues multiply per artist's ShinyQueens monthly views divided per total ShinyQueens monthly views multiply per seventy percent. The total is the artist payout.
- Hard copy (magazines and books): Artists receive sixty percent (60%), of the net revenues based on magazine sales. The net profit is shared between Artists registered on Shinyqueens.com and involved in the magazine publishing.
How we pay SQ hard copy (magazine, books) contributors: Models (if any): (magazine net revenues multiplied by the number of photographer's published pictures divided by total number of published pictures in a given published magazine) multiplied by sixty percent (60%). multiplied by twenty percent (20%). Photographers: a forty percent (40%) payout is given by sixty percent (60%) to SQ Artists minus twenty percent (20%) to SQ models represented, if any.
- Merchandise (prints, posters, t-shirts, etc.): Publishing owners receive ninety-seven percent (97%) of the net value for each item sold using their respective copyright.
The above percentages do not include processing costs; such costs will be charged on the Artists payout.
