How does it work?
You sign up free, and a site (such as http://demo.photodeposit.com)

that you can posting your pictures and start selling. You

we enhance your standard site with an advanced layout have
the feel and look of your liking, however, we do charge a
fee for this.
How much does it cost to put an event online?
There is no monthly fee, no commission charge, and no activation
fee. When a site is created for you, two "Event Credits"
are given so that you can create events right away. After
that, you can refill your "Event Credits", each
event credit range from $6 to $15 depending whether you are
a business or individual/non-profit organizations and how
much you buy. For example: assume you are a non-profit organization
wanting to sell pictures, and you decided to purchase 10 "event
credits" which is priced at $14, however, we would add
10 extra "event credits" because you are from a
non-profit organization giving you 20 event credits which
is half the cost. Unfortunately, we have to pay for our servers,
bandwidth, and small staff to maintain the services. Call
us at 773-793-9682 (ask for Vincent) for more info.

There is no setup or membership fee, no monthly fee nor commission
fee. You will only pay for events that you want to post, after
