Cutcaster Closes On Saturday

Posted on 4/24/2020 by Jim Pickerell | Printable Version | Comments (0)

Founder John Griffin has announced that he will be closing the microstock site Cutcaster on Saturday April 25, 2020 after nearly 12 years of operations. He gave buyers and sellers a few days notice of the following:

Buyers: If you have any remaining credits with Cutcaster, please use them before 11:59 p.m. PT on Sat. April 25, 2020. Credits remaining in any Cutcaster account after Sat. April 25, 2020 will be forfeited.??

Sellers: If you have more than $5 in earnings in your account, please request a payout before 11:59 p.m. PT on Sat. April 25, 2020. To request a payout, log in to your account, and choose Earnings from the Profile menu in the upper-right corner of the window. Click Request Payout and follow the onscreen instructions.??



All existing images in the Cutcaster library will be removed from the public site after Sat. April 25, 2020. If you would like to delete your images earlier, please let us know by emailing webmaster@cutcaster.com.

Photographer Steve Heap commented, “I think it is a real sign of an ethical person to allow us to ask for any remaining balance before it finally closes. I had about $9 over there - so thanks John for this. After losing $80 or so with Crestock (yes, my own fault for never going to the site), it is refreshing to see a different approach.
