Flirt4Free’s Clip Site ModelClips Shuts Down With Short Notice to Models and Fans
Clip sites come and go but it is not very often that they give their models and customers less than days notice that they will be shutting down. Unfortunately, ModelClips sent out the following notice to performers on February 26th on the day that their email claims sales will no longer be possible. On March 2nd they will be completely shutting down the site and calculating final payouts.
ModelClips Statement Regarding their Closure
“It is with a heavy heart that I inform you that we will be shutting down ModelClips.com.
Unfortunately, the interest in interactive clips did not have the market demand that we envisioned it was going to have, and the niche that we thought was going to set your immersive clips apart from others just wasn’t there.
Everyone at ModelClips thanks you for your efforts and support in trying to make this adventure work, but it doesn’t seem fair to build unrealistic expectations if the platform isn’t going to grow in the direction we planned.
You should anticipate the following in the upcoming days as we wrap things up:
On February 26th, sales will no longer be possible.
On March 2nd , the site will shut down.
On March 2nd , the final payouts will be calculated.
From March 3rd – 5th, Model Support will reach out to you if your payment method is missing or if W9s are required.
By March 6th, final model payments will be made.
Thank you, again, for your support, patience, and efforts during this adventure. It was a pleasure working with all of you and I hope our paths cross again sometime soon. Until then, on behalf of everyone at ModelClips, I wish you peace and good fortune!
ModelClips Could Have Succeeded
As a clip site backed by the popular cam site Flirt4Free, ModelClips had the makings of a site that could have succeeded. Their statement claims that the shut down is due to a lack of market demand, which we mentioned to them in our interview with them in Podcast 84: ModelClips Presentation (plus CammodelExpress Shutting Down and Camming News!) Many clip and cam sites are creating interactive tools for customers while there currently isn’t a large market for interactivity on the customer side due to the high price of interactive sex toys. Sites who focus on the model interactivity and giving customers control over models interactive toys tend to find more success within the interactive market. Aside from the interactivity, if ModelClips focused more on the idea of being a clip site paying out 80% rather than an interactive site, it is possible with their Flirt4Free backing and integration that they could have become a major player as far as clip sites go.
