Imvu will turn the credits you earn into real money. Means there is no need of purchasing credits for you. You can opt out and in and change the way you get paid. Means if you need credits for submissions opt in for earning credits, once you got enough opt in for earning money directly.

The money you will receive will be .40/1k if you translate it into a value of credits.


Not sure if you have been reading anything of that has been said here so i will repeat it step by step for you

SOME PEOPLE EARN CR THROUGH OTHER MEANS THAN SELLING AND IMVU IS NOT FIXING THIS


This post by the CEO says that they are working on how to address it.


MY point with this quote was to state that the mod's answer is ignorant because she didnt even read what was originally adressed be the previous quote. And there is no place for ignorance where people are upset about a certain situation.

You're not getting the point... o.O I get they will turn the credits into real money for CREATORS. But not for artists. There are hundreds of artists out there as well.


I strongly support this point from Lagoon.
The Artists and other (none fraudulent) who counted on the cheap credits, via resellers to gain a little pocket money are also very much comprimised with the decisions made.
I feel for them the strongest, as many have no means to ever gain what they had before the change.
And they are NOT the BAD PEOPLE.

I'm not happy with the way IMVU sprang this on us with no warning, that was definitely not cool. But I see a case of misdirected anger in these forums. So let me put on my libertarian tin foil hat and wade through the facts and fury.

I'm speculating that the IRS got in contact with IMVU regarding unreported income generated from catalog sales, from the tone of Brett's post. IRS wants its cut, because we have wars to waste trillions on, corporate subsidies to fund, nonviolent drug users' lives to ruin, and besides, Paul is complaining that we're not robbing enough from Peter to buy himself a new iPad. And if you think IMVU customer service is bad, wait till IRS has an axe to grind with you, all I'm saying.

This all puts IMVU between a rock and a hard place. As a corporation, when the government says jump, its answer must be "how high". Let me ask you, last time you cashed out from a reseller, did you ask for a 1099 and claim that income on your 1040? No? I'll wager few of us have, and therein lies the problem. Now IMVU has to scramble to change the inner workings of their computer systems to accommodate a change they didn't want or ask for, but under the threat of prosecution must happen. The government puts people in cages and hoovers their bank accounts. Put yourself in Brett's shoes and you'll understand why these changes were made.

Brett and IMVU are just a pawn in a much bigger scam that should really anger you, the hard-working taxpayer. If you read the Declaration of Independence, you can see the reasons the USA rebelled against Mother England, and you'll be astounded to find that a lot of those reasons apply to today's US government. Different faces, same old sh*t. As long as you're good little compliant tax livestock, nobody gets hurt. And contrary to popular belief, slavery didn't end in 1864, it just got redistributed and is now managed by IRS via legalized theft.

They may be able to tweak a few things here and there, but the resellers are gone for good, and if real money is going to exchanged then it has to be reported.

I think we should focus our attention on suggestions to help with the things that can be tweaked. Stop going on about the ones that can't and won't be. It doesn't matter how many threads are up or even how many people leave.
Tax laws are just that LAWS that have to be followed.


Nailed it!


Agreed and I had to fill out tax information when I signed up with my reseller anyway. I got a statement every year and I had to claim my earnings here. This changes nothing as far as my earnings here go. Except Imvu is offering better than resellers. Not once did I get $40 for 100,000 from a reseller. I paid taxes on 35.. now I pay taxes on 40. Imvu didn't have a choice IMHO. This was coming and it's smart on their part. I am surprised there were resellers in the first place. Imvu should be making money on the credits. Everyone who leaves will be replaced. New people join everyday. Think about that before you leave. You are only hurting yourselves.


I also had to provide my reseller with my tax information and he claimed it every year....the other resellers I used I had to just report my income from them through Paypal records.....so all in all this will make things easier....and just like you....I RARELY seen 40 for my credits....I feel like I got a raise!

I believe Elia's response did address the question at hand.

I was also answering your statement that IMVU is not fixing it.

Not anymore. This company will never see another penny of my money, real or otherwise, ever again.

I might throw one in its grave and laugh, but we will see.

Its either they lower prices on their credits or give us creators better rates to work Aftertax also make a stable program where artsist can keep doing what they do to be paid for it, they deserve it or all of the above.
