Sell Your Videos.
Have you gotten yourself wet or messy on-camera lately? Did you and your partner record a sexy gunge session last night? Are you a budding amateur or are you a pro with a full back catalog of great content? Well guess what. If you have an account at umd.net, you already have a download store.

We try to make it easy.
Once you register or sign in, you can upload your files. Then you can provide descriptions, select your teaser thumbnails, and set a selling price and other info. Your store automatically does the rest, from file conversion and thumbnailing, to creating all the pages to hold your content.


Customize your store.
Your virtual store will be located at a URL that looks like http://yourstore.umd.net. You will be able to upload your own header image and customize the colors yourself!


We pay weekly.
We split each transaction 30/70 (you keep the 70%), and you'll never have to worry about hosting, storage fees, bandwidth, programming, credit card billing, or customer service issues. You get paid every Sunday, electronically.

Join the family of producers with umd.net download stores. Everything is already set up for you. The next step is to upload your files.

Full Instructions
Once you get a free UMD profile, you will be given a file upload bin and the ability to set up downloads as follows:


To add to your Videos page
Upload a file to your bin, and once it's there, click the "Add to my videos" link next to it and fill out the form.
After we approve it, viewers will be able to watch and download these videos for free on your profile's "Videos" page and on our main Videos page.
Please do not upload trailers this way if they go with a corresponding for-sale download (see below).
If your video is long, access to it will be restricted to our VIP members.
To sell on your store
You can sell your videos and files instead of offering it for free. Start by uploading files to your bin (after setting up your store). Once they're there, click the checkbox next to one or more files that you wish to put into a sellable package (don't forget to include any trailers!), and submit.
Fill out the form and set your price, and once we approve it, your download will be displayed and cross-sold among others in the main store. It will also be displayed in your own customizable virtual store once it has at least 5 videos for sale.
Customers will be able to download purchased scenes for 5 days, and keep them permanently on their computer thereafter. Streaming playback is an option offered on certain video formats during their expiry window. Admin reserves the right to re-enable an expired purchase for a legitimate customer at any time, if necessary for courtesy reasons.
You will be licensing us to sell on your content on your behalf, but it remains under your ownership and you can remove it at any time.
Payouts
We pay you a royalty of 70% on all sales. Payment is made weekly through your choice of Dwolla or Paypal or physical check. Paypal charges you 2.9% plus a flat $0.30 fee when we send you your money. Dwolla is free to receive money, but only available if you are in the USA. Withdrawals to your bank account are free unless you live outside the USA, in which case your payment service will charge for currency conversion (normally at the current rate plus 2.5% plus $0.30). Your bank may also charge its own fees for receiving the deposit. Please price your content with these fees in mind.
Payments are sent two weeks after the end of each week of sales. The minimum balance required for payout is $25; Otherwise your balance will accrue until it reaches that amount and be paid on the following normal payout date.
Taxes
Since we use 3rd-party payment services to pay you, they are obligated by law to supply you with an annual 1099k tax income form by January 31. Therefore you will not receive any 1099 forms from us, nor do we report your income directly to the IRS, which would possibly cause double taxation. You will only receive a 1099k from your payment service if you made at least $20,000 and had 200 transactions during the year. (The usual $600 threshold does not apply to you when getting paid via an electronic payment service instead of directly.) Because laws change, we protect ourselves by still asking that all producers participating in our store system supply us with a completed W9 or W8-WEN. Whether or not you receive a 1099k, please be sure to report all incomes on your taxes. Also see our FAQ on taxes.
File Formats and Bit Rates
We strongly recommend mp4 files encoded with the h.264 codec so that your content will work on mobile devices, but we also accept m4v, mov, mpg, and wmv. We also accept mp3, txt, and zip files containing only jpg's. Not all customers are on fast internet connections, so file size limited is 1GB to avoid customer issues. Please encode your video with a sensible bit rate (or else we may re-encode it). Here is a basic chart to get you started:
Recommended bit rates
The internet prefers h.264 mp4 files!
800 x 600 (SVGA)2500Kbps
1280 x 720 (720p)4500Kbps
1920 x 1080 (1080p)8000Kbps
3840 x 2160 (4k)12000Kbps
Rendering
We no longer accept videos with excessive black bars due to the picture not matching the frame size. Videos must also be correctly oriented (not tilted sideways). Please familiarize yourself with your equipment and software, and render your content so it fully fits the video frame and is upright. When in doubt, just film horizonally.
We will re-encode files to a more efficient bit rate when necessary. Where we think it will help, we will also make adjustments to the scenes' descriptions, keyword selections, and teaser / main image choices.
Grouping Files
We heavily encourage selling multiple files together in a single download if they were created from the same photo shoot, or "scene." This simplifies the store and makes for a more cohesive user experience. A scene may consist of a single video, multiple videos, a zip file of pictures, audio or text files, or any combination.
To offer a free trailer with a scene, be sure to also select that file and include it with the other files when creating your scene. To add one to an existing scene, just upload it to your bin and contact us with details.
Bundles
You may sell groups of existing scenes in a bundle, for a fixed price. This lets you create special themed packages of your content, at will, without re-uploading anything. Bundles require at least 3 scenes. They must be different scenes, not just different renderings, sizes, or camera-angles of the same scene (please package such files into a single download; See above). The included scenes will continue to be offered for individual sale; There is no option to disable this at this time.
First, create an empty bundle, then edit your scenes individually to assign them to the bundle. Set your bundle to "ready for launch" once you have at least 3 scenes in it, and at that time we will consider it for approval. Once approved, the bundle will be treated as any other download: It'll appear on your store and in our What's New section, it's affected by any sales you run, you can advertise it, etc.
Our Rules
Your scene must abide by our terms of service. Our billers forbid us to sell content containing forced sex, pissing, shitting, violence, passing out, drugs, hallucinating, inebriation, nonconsensual sex, vomiting, beastiality, celebrities, incest, kids or pre-teens, nudists, pedos, or necrophilia, even if it's totally fake, implied, or even just spoken about.
All producers must supply tax information and include 2257 Custodian of Records information on the corresponding store's setup form.
You must own the content. You assume all responsibilty for any legal repercussions resulting from the sale of your material, including copyright disputes, performer issues, etc.
It is your responsibility to make sure that the files you upload survive the transfer intact and non-corrupt. Please check the file size of each file in your bin, and compare it to the size of the same file on your computer. If the two do not match, please delete the file from your bin and try uploading it again.
We reserve the right to refund a customer his purchase price, and deduct the amount from your commission for any reason.
