SnapVillage Will No Longer Accept Uploads as of May 1st April 22, 2009

Posted by Team SnapVillage in Service Announcements, snapvillage, Veer Marketplace.

Hi SnapVillagers,

It’s been just over two months since we announced our plans to roll SnapVillage into a new microstock offering on Veer called Veer Marketplace. We’ve been moving at a rapid pace as we get closer to the mid year launch when Veer Marketplace upload capabilities will be live.

The next stage of this transition requires that we stop accepting new uploads to SnapVillage. This will allow us to “freeze” the SnapVillage collection, and enable more efficient extraction and transfer of SnapVillage imagery and accounts to Veer Marketplace.

We have scheduled this to happen on Friday, May 1. This means you can continue to upload images until midnight on April 30th, but after that you’ll have to hold on to your new images while we transfer the rest of the SnapVillage content over to Veer Marketplace.

While we won’t be taking new uploads, you’ll still be able to access your SnapVillage account and portfolio as you always have. This change doesn’t affect any buyer side feature or functionality. During this transition, SnapVillage buyers will continue to be able to license your content, and you’ll continue to accrue royalties.

We launched Phase 1 of Veer Marketplace in late February with 140,000 images that are now available for purchase on veer.com and we are still slated for a full launch mid year with contributor upload capabilities and credit-based pricing and subscriptions.

We’ll be in touch with you over the next few weeks with an update on the Phase 2 launch date which will include the go-live date for the upload features on Veer Marketplace, submission guidelines and details about your new Veer Marketplace agreement and royalties.

While we’re bummed we won’t be able to accept your new content for awhile, we’re really excited that Veer Marketplace and a brand new upload workflow is closer than ever. Stay tuned!

If you have any other questions, you can email contactus@snapvillage.com

Thanks from the SnapVillage Team
