500px’ commercial ‘Prime’ photo marketplace rolls out of beta

One month after 500px launched its all-new Prime photo-licensing marketplace, the service officially rolls out of its invite-only beta period today.

The new service launches with a collection curated by 30,000 of the community’s army of photographers. 500px Prime is selling itself as a way of accessing simple, royalty-free imagery for commercial use, with a non-restrictive global license costing a flat rate of $250. Each photographer will keep 70% of every sale they make.
