Terms and conditions for credits and use of Byrd
Credits, albums and assignments
Credits are used to download photos, albums or videos. There are two types of credits.
Subscription credits come with a subscription plan. They are topped up every month, so every 30 days you will receive a fresh bash of credits in your account and old credits will vanish. The price for one credit will vary depending on the selected subscription plan.
Pay-as-you-go credits can be added anytime you like. They last for one year and cost 50 euro each.
Standard photo: 1 credit
Standard album: 2 credits
Standard video: 2 credits
Professional photo: 2 credits
Professional album: 3 credits
Professional video: 4 credits
The exclusive price for a photo, video or album is between 60-15 000 €
If the Licensor (the photographer) wish to sell a story exclusively the Licensor can decide the price. The price can be edited as long as the story has not been sold.
Pretty straightforward - multiple photos in one package. All snapped by the same photographer. A non-exclusive album is twice the price of a photo but can consist of up to five photos. It’s up to you how many of them you want to use.
With assignments, you can send out requests to Byrd’s photographers within a specific area. All assignments reach photographers through push notifications from the Byrd smartphone app.
