How can my content earn money with VOD.com?
We spend millions of dollars in advertising, show sponsorships, and major promotions that bring people to our site to watch your content.
The Internet offers tremendous exposure because potential customers worldwide can see your movies! Anyone with a computer can pay to see your content. Now that more than 50% of Internet users have high-speed, broadband connections, the Internet is fast becoming the Future of content delivery.
How Do I Make Money?
It's so easy! All you do is send us movies you believe others will enjoy watching. We place them on VOD.com. There is no cost to you. Once your movies are live, people can pay per rental, per download, or per-minute to see them. They can watch all or parts of any movie!
For the most part, traditional membership websites have become a thing of the past. People want to watch what they want, when they want. They're tired of recurring monthly billing and would rather pay only for what they watch. VOD.com offers Pay-Per-Minute billing (the billing model destined to become the Future of Video on Demand) and we share the revenue with you!
How Much Money Can I Make?
PLENTY! VOD.com is committed to bringing substantial traffic to our site and therefore to your content. If people enjoy your movies, they will return again and again to look for new ones. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain and all of it is at no cost to you!
Will Having My Films Available On The Internet Hurt My DVD Sales?
We know of no studio that has seen a decrease in DVD sales after putting their movies on VOD.com. In fact, their overall revenue has increased because people worldwide can now see and enjoy them. Remember, customers simply cannot purchase all your movies. They will buy some and may even increase their purchases after they see more of your movies by watching them on the Internet.
How Do I See What I Am Earning?
When you create a VODDollars.com account, you receive a unique UserName and select a Password so you can log in at any time. You’ll see which of your movies are being watched, how people watch them, how often, and how much money you make every day, month to month.
What Subject Matter Are You Looking For?
VOD.com accepts videos in almost any genre. As long as it meets legal standards and we agree the content is something people will want to watch, we welcome it on our site.
Do I Have To Submit Full-Length Movies?
Movies do not need to be anywhere near full-length (usually around 90 minutes). We accept material of almost any length. Even five-minute clips that offer interesting or entertaining content can produce good money for you. We even accept miscellaneous content and will make compilations for you.
What Are Rights? How Are They Applied On The Internet?
Film and video rights are generally specific to various mediums. A studio may acquire the rights to the theatrical release of a film but not the television rights. This leaves the door open for the producer to sell the TV rights in the future. Likewise, the right to distribute films on the Internet is separate from other rights and can be given at the will of the producer as long as those rights were not sold exclusively to someone else.
What Is A "Nonexclusive" Agreement? How Can It Affect Me?
When you submit your movies to VOD.com, we accept them as part of a nonexclusive agreement. This means that when you give VOD.com the right to offer your movie(s) on the Internet, you can also give the same nonexclusive rights to other Internet sites. Please be sure that you have the Internet rights to your films before you submit them to anyone as your content.
Some Pay-Per-Minute programs require Producers to sign an exclusive agreement. If you make an agreement like this, it means you cannot market your content to other Internet distribution services. When you work with VOD.com, you get a nonexclusive agreement. This means that if another Internet distribution agent or website would ALSO like to offer your content, your agreement with us will NOT prevent it. If you choose to make an exclusive agreement for your content with another agent, you can end your agreement with VOD.com at any time with 30 days' written notice. We will always comply with your wishes.
Is It Possible For People To Pirate My Movies From Your Site?
VOD.com uses the latest in Digital Rights Management plus maintains a dedicated team of highly skilled technicians who work 24/7 to ensure that your movies are delivered securely and only to the people who pay for them.
What Is DivX® And How Can I Show My Movies In This Format?
DivX® is a highly compressed movie format ideal for downloading. With DivX® downloads, you get high quality video that never streams or buffers. Your movie will be large, crisp, and sound great. To have your movies encoded in the DivX® format, contact DivXNetworks.com. Once your movies are encoded, all you need to do is authorize VOD.com to offer your movies in the DivX® format.

Why should I promote VODDollars.com?
If you are like most people, you want to build an ongoing revenue stream. At VOD.com, 50% of our customers return again and again to buy more time. By sending continual traffic to VOD.com you will build a loyal customer base and increase your revenue monthly.
Will I earn as much as sites that pay me on a per sign up basis?
YES! It takes several months to build your customer base. This is not an overnight process and you will need to put time and effort into your promotional plans. In the long run, you will earn more money than sites that pay you per sign up and once you have a solid customer base, you will continually recur revenue with limited amount of additional efforts.
Why should I switch my traffic from other pay-per-minute sites to VOD.com?
Contrary to what you might think, 90%-95% of your revenue from other pay-per-minute sites comes from customers you sent in the PAST. You gain because you will build a NEW customer base at VOD.com while continuing to retain the revenue you receive from the customers you previously sent to these older sites. Your likelihood of finding new and unique customers is much higher with us.
How do you know customers prefer pay-per-minute over recurring billing memberships?
We tested using two of our own heavy traffic sites. To each we added a non-recurring, one month membership priced at $5.00 MORE than our recurring plan. The non-recurring plan outsells the recurring one by FOUR TO ONE. It is clear people want to pay as they go. Not to mention that with pay-per-minute, we put you in more control of special offers that can help drive in more customers.
Why do you only charge visitors eight cents a minute to watch movies?
We offer this excellent value to build a loyal customer base. It helps us to retain customers and bring more people to VOD.com. Once visitors try VOD.com, they become customers who return repeatedly.
How will I know how much I have earned?
Once logged into your webmaster account; the big orange "Stats" button will lead you directly to the analytics area. Within this location you can see detailed information regarding your clicks, commission, referring URL, and much more. We also allow our affiliates to insert their Google Analytics codes into his or her Custom Theater. You can cross-reference our stats with Google's.
What's the minimum payment?
We offer multiple ways to be paid including check, wire, and Paxum.
For check payments the minimum is $50. For wire payments the minimum is $400. For Paxum payments the minimum is $100.
If you do not reach your monthly minimum, you're earnings will be rolled over into the next pay period, continually, until the minimum is met.
Example: If your minimum payment is $50.00 and you earned $25.00 in January, $20.00 in February, and $5.00 in March - You would receive a $50.00 check from us at the beginning of April.
