Depositphotos cancels its pay-by-SMS functionality

Fort Lauderdale, Florida, September 18, 2012 – Depositphotos, the fastest-growing microstock agency in the world, will not accept payment by SMS anymore, since this method has proved to be unprofitable. From the moment Depositphotos was founded, its goal was to provide its clients with the widest range of payment methods possible. Therefore, the company introduced its innovative pay-by-SMS functionality. However, this technology proved too expensive: due to high mobile rates Depositphotos’ contributors, as well as the company itself, were earning significantly less than they did when files were purchased with other payment methods.
