Subscriptions and the business API

Can you confirm that if I buy a subscription, for example the 25 photo
per day subscription, that it will work with my Business API.

How are the photo credits charged, or are they?

Is there a filter I should apply, so that only photos that are
available under subscription are returned? For example, should I
search for the "L" size photos?

I don't want to spend $1,649 USD on a 25 photo per day subscription,
and then learn that it does not work with API calls.

Thank you,
Ken Williams

How do I get an answer to this? I would like to start buying pictures,
and buy an annual subscription -- but...

- I've called the company and left several requests, with no answer
- I posted a question through the control panel, and was asked to post
- My original posting here has not been responded to in eight days

Is there another means of support I should be attempting?

Thank you,
Ken Williams

Hi Ken,

We have a type of API key that handles subscription, but it's a
special deal.
Can you please contact me directly by email : pierre at fotolia dot
com ?
Send me an explanation of your project, and how you plan to use the
Fotolia API , this will help us moving forward.

Greetings Pierre.

Thank you for responding. As I mentioned, I'd like to sign up for one of the
annual subscriptions, but want to buy the pictures through the api

My business, hosts the websites for 50,000 small
businesses. We are currently set up to resell Fotalia credits to our
customers, and they can purchase photos directly through our software.

I really have two questions:

- If I sign up for the 25 picture a day plan, what happens if on a given day
I purchase 26 photos? Is one photo credit removed from my account? (which
would be fine). I can't stop selling because a customer may want to buy.

- What license should I request when I make the API call, and can I filter
for just those photos?

Thank you!
-Ken Williams
