No, actually that's not why. Thanks again for your positivity. :/

Bank rates fluctuate, they always have, they always will. Feel free to call your bank and ask them about market flux. :)

Not sure if you're aware of this - but we (the sites) don't set the rates. CCbill sets the rates based upon bank rates and fluctuations in bank rates that occur daily/weekly. The rate changes as the market changes. I am not sure how often they modify things, again, we are not ccbill.

CCbills' own explanation on their site:

"Because the market fluctuates daily, we update the CCBill Recommended Ratios on a regular basis. If you click the Accept Regional Pricing button below you are accepting today's CCBill Recommended Ratios"

I view it like this -

If you have a dollar bill from America, and you go to Canada or Spain - is it still worth a dollar? No. Why not? Market fluctuation. Perhaps in the USA your dollar is worth a dollar, but in another country, it might be worth more, or less. Regional pricing accounts for the averages and sets them accordingly.

Weird getting a negative post from you Cap'n - you seemed to positive in the replies you left earlier in Marcus' thread. (sarcasm, you said nothing positive to be honest - you merely complained about something you disagreed with, even after it was explained in that thread and had previously been explained in other threads as to why. Maybe you were having a bad day, not sure - if yes - I hope it got better.)

So you don't get you way regarding zip sets, you come and try a smear campaign with misleading information? Do you not read things or are you in the practice of misquoting?

"Advertised price $16.62 = £10.79"

Actually the exact wording says "Membership prices from $17.83 per month!"

If you buy a one year membership ($213.95), divide that by 12, you get $17.829 - which when rounded up is $17.83. Exactly what the page says. :)

So while you don't need to say anymore, you might consider reading. :)

Alright fine, one more go around. lol

It's not a stonewall attitude.

You don't get your way so we're stonewalling you? Not quite. It's our site. We run it the way *WE* want to run it. Same as any business, if you don't like the way something is, you leave.

We don't offer zips. That's it. Pretty straight forward.

As for Regional pricing, as with zips, if that troubles you - move. on. already.

there are reasons we and other sites do this, and no, you don't get a vote or opinion. If you ran a site yourself, you'd understand that every single day things fluctuate. Bank rates, chargebacks, fraud, bandwidth from assholes that attempt a rip etc. So yes, some sites including ours compensate for this.

When you visit a store do you complain about the % on the dollar? When you do - do you notice they don't care and they keep doing what they do for their reasons? What happens next? You leave. I'm not sure why you feel sites have to explain every aspect of why they do this or that. We don't. :)

Move on and find a site you like. Simple. :)

Again, best of luck in your travels. I hope you find what you're searching for.

"No point in doing photos then."

haha okay then.

"With the rip-off regional pricing, it was academic anyway!"

Again, positivity wins the race.

"Best of luck getting any photo collectors."

We don't need luck, but thank you for your well wishes, very nice of you.

We have thousands of happy members and guess how many complain about not having zips? Less than 0.01%.

Photo collectors go to most sites, see that site's "high resolution" is 1200 or 1500 pixels. (our free promo content is 1500 pixels for crying out loud) Then they see us slamming out 4000 pixel content and where do you think they'll sign up?

The simplest advice is go somewhere your personal needs are met.

Best of luck in your travels, I'm done replying to you if all you're going to do is attack. Man up. If you don't like something, move along and find somewhere you do like. How this is not common sense, I'm not sure.

We will never offer zip sets of any kind, for any user.

If you're after zips, there are several sites for you that will keep you happy. Best of luck in your travels.

I'm not sure if you read what I said or if you took it our of context etc. Photos are important, but to the majority of users, they are not as important as videos are.

To the average guy, when he goes to fap - does he use a photo or two or videos? Obviously different for everyone but survey says... videos.

That is not my personal opinion, that is fact based on surveys we've done, other sites have done, even PU has done int he past. Videos are more important, but that doesn't mean photos are not important. They are and always will be. That's why we still create them and more to the point, create them at higher resolution than any other site out there in our niche. :)

As I said in what I wrote, 80% of our member base that replied said videos are more important than photos. This same sentiment has been echoed in various forums, surveys, even surveys here at PU in the past. Videos are more important than photos to the majority, but that does not mean photos are not important. :)

We still feel they are important, which is why we still do them.

We offered zips for a three week time period when we first started in Feb 2009. By March we had removed the zips option and we have never and will never return to it. Zipped photos mean your content is in trader forums for free. I can think of solo model sites that don't offer zipped content, and it's hard to find their content. I can think of solo model sites that offer zips and it's incredibly easy to find their content.

If we offered zips, perhaps we'd get a few more sales initially, but for the headache it'd bring and then out content being all over, sales would drop and it's simply not worth it to us. There will always be pirated pix/vids no matter what the site is, that's part of the industry. If we can slow it down though, we do.

What's funny is we get maybe one email a month asking about zips. It's nowhere near the issue many in here make it out to be. Nobody really cares that much about photos anymore, videos are more important to our user base according to 4 out of 5 people.

People can right click images to save them, the thumbs don't open as jpgs, they open on their own page for those that like to do the slide show thing (which surprisingly is a lot of people) but on each page, if you right click any image, they're savable.

I do agree, a lot of work for those that want to save things such as every single pic.

Upside though - very limited piracy. Most of the 'site rips' out there are from some newb that went to bryci.org and saved all the 15 image promo images, thinking those are the full sets. Ah well. :)

As for the sad fans- I guess we all want to believe the fantasy sometimes. I think 99% of guys get that it's entertainment and then 1% think - whoa. I have a shot here. Bryci mentions me on her blog all the time, we've been together 7+ years but maaaaybe if this one fan is extra nice, he'll win her over.

/knocks on wood.

haha.. I should be careful, I'll jinx myself! I figure fuck it, A for effort. Anyone that thinks they can sign up and the model will fall in love with them, fuck yeah man, go for it. Why not? :) (but fyi to the 1% reading - Bryci is off the market - we're married)

Again, thanks for the kind words. We're huge fans of Chica, as well as Wifey from Wifey's World. We were just watching some Wifey vids yesterday actually. Great vids!

Thanks for the kind words on your review. Yes, bryci does her blog herself, she does pretty much everything with her site. I handle updates etc.

yes, we stopped doing wmv network wide as of March 2013. Simplest reason? We asked our member based and we had over 90% say mp4 over wmv. So if we can help members get what they're after, we're happy to help. wmv is sort of a lost tech it seems, mp4 is playable regardless of OS where as wmv is windows only.

Hardcore wise - we're scared shitless! ha! We're trying though - we're having more and more fun as we go. We love what Wifey and Hubby, Chica and her man, even Rachel Aziani and Buzz have done before us for years. We thought we'd join the ranks and start having more fun as well. So far, we've had a handful of guys be upset because they felt they had a shot with Bryci (not sure why) but that happens with solo models on occasion. Almost everyone is happy and we're happy to oblige!

As I had said before as well as in the faq for the bella sites, we don't do zips because when we did, our content was pirated like mad. We stopped offering zips and it went from all over to hard to find. We still get the odd people pirating us, that happens but we stopped the majority of it photo wise anyway.

I can think of many solo models that offer zips, and I can get those zips for free all over - so why pay for their sites? I don't agree with that mindset but this is what happens. This is our job, so we're going to want to make sure we're not being ripped off, that's all it is.

James

Thank you for the review Marcus!

To address a couple points you mentioned, we are going to stop offering wmv in the future, based off a survey we did of members and also looking at the data in our sites regarding what people download most. WMV is barely used it seems as it once was, mp4 is more compatible with all OS's. We're not removing older wmv fils, just not creating new ones. In addition this also means faster file creation, more room on server for more files etc.

We're in the process of adding a new site that is a large scale multi model site that will debut in the spring of this year. It will feature everything form girl next door types to hardcore photos and videos.

As for Bryci's hardcore that she and I are filming.. we're new to it so we wanted our first few videos to be somewhat voyeuristic. We did this because we were still adapting to going in this direction and let's face it.. not every day one does this. We are not a major porn studio, nor do we want to be perceived as one. We are two people running it all, well.. I run all of Bella and Bryci helps with her site of course. So when we decided to go into HC, we felt it was best to be us, not try and follow other people's examples. We bring the camera and put it down and then go have fun, filming it. We have no interest in having others film us, or having multiple cameras filming, it's just us two having fun.

That said - we will be getting a lot more daring moving forward. We plan on doing pov style, as well as other styles. We're inviting our members into our sex life basically.. so far, so good. :)

Thanks again for the review!

Thanks for the great review Marcus!

side note: I bumped the download limit from 12 gig/24 hour period to 20 gig/24 hour period. i respect some people get carried away and want their videos. :)

Marcus - as a member of Bella - make sure you check the news inside the member's side of bellapass.com (right hand side in news column of member's side) - we're giving away a free week for your responses to a small question/answer form we have. We're trying to make Bella even better and yes.. we're adding some exciting features.

Again, thanks!

James

Thanks for the review!

Renna was with us up until last week. She just gave birth and simply didn't have time to do her site and cam, be a Mom, wife etc so she chose to retire her site. We respected this completely. She's an amazing woman and we wish her all the best!

Hunter will have videos added shortly - We bought her site from her old webmaster, and some of the formats weren't compatible with our system so we had to make changes.

We are adding some multi model sites shortly (in Feb and March) that will feature hardcore photo sets and videos.

We're trying to add some bang for the buck :)

If you have suggestions, drop me an email! james@bellanetwork.com

thanks for your review, your time and of course, your support!
