If a distributor sells one of my images, when will I be paid?

Picfair’s contracts with partner agencies require the distributor to report sales to us on a monthly or quarterly basis. As soon as we receive the relevant licence fees from distributors, we will be able to update your balance and you can cash out via Picfair. Please note that this delay could mean that your images are used by a distributor's clients before you have been paid, but be assured that you will always be paid for them.


If you are concerned that your work is being used somewhere and wish to confirm that it has been licensed via one of Picfair’s distributors, you can always email us at and we will confirm with our partners that a payment is pending.
