How much do Models make?

Okami -

One vote is equivalent to one dollar. Any Zivity member can purchase votes. When a member votes on a set, the number of votes they've given is essentially how much money they have given the set. For example, if a member votes 15 times, that’s $15.

That dollar is then split up and distributed to the model, the photographer, and the site according to the Master Agreement. Currently, models get 55% of each vote, photographers receive 30%, and Zivity takes 15% to cover processing fees.



Zivity pays artists electronically every quarter (every 3 months). Our payment schedule is as follows:

  • Jan-March Earnings - paid May 15th
  • April-June Earnings - paid Aug 15th
  • July-Sept Earnings - paid Nov 15th
  • Oct-Dec Earnings - paid Feb 15th

You can always access your Earnings Summary to keep track of how much you've made in the past, and how much you'll get paid in the future.
