ShalletApp is a mobile platform, available on AppStore and Google Play, enabling non-professional photographers to monetize their pics, buying and selling exploitation rights of digital photographs.
ShalletApplies the share economy concept to digital photos:
I have a house I can earn some money → Airbnb
I have a car I can earn some money → Uber, Blablacar
And now: I have a smartphone I can earn some money… via Shallet
You can buy and sell digital photo’s exploitation rights: ‘Shares’. Each photo uploaded on ShalletApp is represented by two underlying Shares, each Share equates to 50% of the exploitation rights of the photo.
ShalletApp pictures are created by non-professional photographers; Shallet users can profit from their pictures and connections, selling underlying exploitation rights (Shares) to friends, contacts or other Shallet members. You just need a couple of friends who trust you!
ShalletStock is the micro-stock agency fed by ShalletApp photos: when both underlying Shares of a pic are sold on ShalletApp, the photo is automatically moved from ShalletApp to ShalletStock. Rights owners of images in ShalletStock will earn royalties when photos are licenced to external users.
First you need to buy one Share (representing 50% of the exploitation rights of an image) on ShalletApp. Once you make a purchase you have the right to upload your own photo and sell the underlying two Shares (each representing 50% of the exploitation rights of your photo) on ShalletApp. e. g. if I buy a 50 EUR share, this gives me the right to sell a photo priced at 100 EUR as each Share is worth 50 EUR.
Up to 50% of your initial purchase costs — if you sell both Shares related to your photo.
e. g. buy 1 Share at 100 EUR, sell 2 Shares at 100 EUR each, minus Shallet commission (25% VAT inclusive), net profit: 50 EUR on an initial spend of 100 EUR:
|1. Share purchased @ 100 EUR (debited to credit card/Neteller)||-100 EUR|
|2. Shares sold on ShalletApp @ 100 EUR each (credited into Shallet account)||+200 EUR|
|Commission on Shares sold (debited into Shallet account): 25+25 EUR||-50 EUR|
|Net profit||50 EUR|
|Available funds on ShalletApp||150 EUR|
