After completing a basic listing assignment for a client I was informed that Redfin would be processing my invoice and I would be paid from them. OK. Then I received the Redfin vendor terms which I need to accept before they will pay me. Not OK. Especially since my work has been used on the listing now for a few weeks. Most of it I have no issues with, except for this item which really irritates me:
a. Redfin will have license to use the images outside of the listing period for any purpose
No. I will not give blanket rights to my work for any purpose.
I think they are stuck on this being a checkbox item in their accounts system and they wont pay me until I sign it. I will not sign it without renegotiating the assignment fee. I’ve already wasted way more time with this than the assignment was worth.
Has anyone else signed these Redfin terms?
FYI this was a “photos only” assignment as the broker of record was on site with his new Matterport camera and he used that. I’m sure they didn’t get Matterport to sign the Redfin terms before adding their credit card to the Matterport account system.
