You access the footage of the accident, incident or event that you want to upload on Scene Finder from the device that you recorded it on. Then you share the data by logging into your Scene Finder account, click on the share button and upload the footage.
Once the customer who is looking for the exact footage that you uploaded search our database, locate the footage and pays for it. You are then notified within 24 hours of the payment being processed by email of the purchase and advised to log into your account to request your payment method.
Keep in mind that the main premise of Scene Finder is based on Integrity. If the footage is paid for and we do not pay for the footage we would risk our contributors finding out and since our business is based on our contributors uploading the footage that would not be good business. In addition, we have a second process in place to confirm that the rewards are paid out. We also have a notification email in place that if the payment is not issued and no choice was made on payment processing, to submit an additional notification email. We also have a check and balance verification process in place to confirm that our contributors are paid. If you received notification of your payment but did not receive your reward that you requested. Please send us an email and we will be happy to resolve the matter.
A big part of Scene Finder is charity, we believe that charity starts at home so you will have the option to issue your reward to the charity of your choice or you can select a charity from our list. Once your reward is issued to your selected charity organization on your behalf, you will receive an email notification which you can also use for tax purposes if you chose.
Instead of sending multiple checks every time someone selects their charity. Charity organization payments will be processed at the end of every month and the check should be received within 5-10 business days after its processed.
No, the footage needs to be clear and visible in order for us to upload it on the site. If it is not clear you will receive an email notifying you that we are unable to post your content. The reason is based on integrity and excellence we have to add value to the party that’s paying for the footage.
You should try and upload the content the same day. Liability decisions are made very quickly, usually within 1-2 days after the claim is filed. Therefore, the quicker you upload the content the great your chance of someone looking and finding your footage and you being paid
