Docstoc Enables Payments for User Generated Content; Users Make Money for Putting Documents Online Docstoc.com comes out of public Beta and launches DocCash, a program that allows people to make money by uploading their documents to Docstoc.com and sharing the ad revenue. SANTA MONICA (May 13th, 2009) - Docstoc, the premier online community for finding and sharing high-quality, professional documents, came out of public Beta today and announced it is offering contributors an opportunity to make money by uploading their documents to Docstoc.com. By simply signing up for the DocCash program (http://www.docstoc.com/doccash), and by leveraging Google’s AdSense API, Docstoc users can earn recurring, passive income anytime someone clicks on the Google Ads that run alongside their documents. “We are very excited about DocCash. We appreciate and rely on our community of contributors and believe they deserve to share in our AdSense revenues.” says Jason Nazar, CEO and CoFounder of Docstoc. “We also recognize that, in times like these, any extra income goes a long way.” Despite the slowing economy, Docstoc has seen tremendous growth in recent months as more and more individuals and businesses are leveraging Docstoc.com as a fast, easy and free way to promote themselves and to find useful content, including legal forms, sample business plans and resume templates. And now, with DocCash, entrepreneurial stay-at-home moms, students and the recently unemployed, can make some money on the side - perhaps for a family dinner out or to pay off some of that credit card debt - just by uploading their documents. Docstoc is also releasing its Platform API, which offers developers an easy and powerful way to upload, preview and manage documents on their websites as well as access the extensive Docstoc documents library. Several partners are already utilizing the API, including PRWeb, Lizzer, Manuals Mania and B2itech. In addition, the Company is unveiling an updated home page designed to serve as a resource for discovering the most topical and notable documents breaking in the news.
