'Commitment deal' -?? What's that then?

Recommended Posts

Anyone know what is meant by a 'commitment deal'?

 

I had two sales on Friday with this usage - Card game, life of product. commitment deal

 

I'm just curious. Don't want to bother CS, I'm sure they've got more important things to do.

Never seen one of those. All I think of is that perhaps the client has committed to licensing additional images in the future and has therefore been given a special price. 

 

But that's just a guess on my part.

It would be very interesting to know. Presumably a (new) card game has the potential to disappear entirely by Christmas or to become the new Trivial Pursuit and make millions. With such a prospect one would like an image deal which was linked to the success of the product. This is of course, entirely speculation, I have no idea what a 'commitment deal' might mean.

Well, the 'commitment deal' wasn't much of a commitment - both sales refunded.....:wacko:

Sounds like a lack of commitment.

That is not a big deal. I've had sales refunded only to show up again as committed sales from the same buyer. A lot of times they are just reevaluating the correct usage and license. Has never happened to an RF image.

I guess that "commitment deal" might (?) mean that the buyer only has to pay if they decide to actually use the image(s). If so, that's a bit odd.

Yes, I've had the same but these sales date back to October so I doubt they will appear again.  Anyway,  the fees were quite low so, as you say, not a big deal - especially as I've had a good month with two sales in three figures.  Over $700 on 15 sales - I'm more than happy with that....!!
