Content creators on Vimeo On Demand can now charge their viewers monthly subscription fees for unlimited viewing besides offering content for sale and rental on a transactional basis.

Creators can set their own price points for buys, rentals or monthly subscriptions and keep 90% of revenue after transaction fees.

The new features are a part of the first phase of Vimeo’s new subscription tools for Vimeo On Demand. 

“Subscription video on demand [SVOD] is a natural extension of Vimeo’s transactional VOD platform, giving creators a new way to sell content to viewers worldwide,” said Vimeo CEO Kerry Trainor (pictured).

“Online video is entering an exciting new stage where creators don’t have to rely on pre-roll advertising alone to earn money, and Vimeo is building the open global platform for paid video distribution.”
