On December 15, 1999 Art Wolfe sold 7,587 shares of Getty Images stock he received in ''Payment for Photo Rights'' a year earlier. When acquired the shares were valued at approximately $100,000. He sold them for $312,000.
In an effort to make the process of purchasing stock more hassle-free for the buyer SuperStock has instituted Express Pricing. A simplified list of 18 prices are expected to cover 80% of SuperStock's sales.
