Hi lagereek,

I work at Bigstock and can I can speak with support to check in on the error that you are seeing. Could you send me a private message with your Shutterstock contributor name?

Thanks very much, and sorry to hear about the troubles!

- Boris

Thanks mate!!  kind of you.

I think its sorted out now,  I got into the Bridge-program and accepted and much thanks to Vincent at SS, it was all cleared up now and some 2000 shots should be on their way.

he told me it can take from a few days up to a week or something, because of dupes and everything.

I would appreciate though if you kept an eye open, so we dont bump into more glitches, etc.

thanks again, really appreciate it.

best.  Christian

Hi Christian,

I'm glad to hear Vincent was able to help, and that its working now. (And I apologize for the initial problems). If  you have any other problems with Bridge to Bigstock, feel free to drop me a PM.

Take care and have a great weekend,
- Boris

Thanks Boris!

Well I hope its OK!,  it was 3 days back but I havent seen anything come through to BS, as yet. Might take a longer time?  In any event I appreciate your help very much.

I take it that from now on, whatever I upload to SS, will automatically be transfered to BS, as well?  does it work, vice-versa?

best, take care.  Chris

I like this Bridge to Bigstock - thing: Bigstock had always a painful upload (categories etc.), stupid rejections etc., now submitting is easy and sales seems to be picking up.

One thing I can't help wondering: Why not integrate the payments - This could work like PP at IS, Bigstock earnings could be moved to SS account monthly. Would anyone else like it this way?

I like the B2B program too, but I like getting paid by Bigstock whenever I reach payout.  I don't see any advantage to having to wait until the end of the month to get paid.

I think so. But honestly my BigStock sales have been so pathetic (on about 1,200 of my images; I have no incentive to upload more) that I don't really care. A while ago when I noted that I didn't know why sales had been so poor (BigStock used to be a pretty decent and consistent lower-tier site) someone said that they'd seen mainly older images selling, which might account for what I'm seeing.

It probably is not a simple change.  Don't BS and SS operate as totally different companies?  Might even be separate banks, accounts, accountants.  Don't they provide separate 1099 reports?

Could be much more complicated than it might seem?

But, I would get my few Big Stock dollars much more frequently ...  if it did happen.   :P

I ask them from time to time and get various answers. This Spring it was, the program is closed. One email someone from SS, said he would ask for a review of my SS files and see. That was hopeful and encouraging. Never heard back, even if it was "we don't feel that your collection fits our program at this time."

Here's what I got today, BigStock Chat, and it's pretty much saying, Yes it's closed, but you can write and ask?  :o Emphasis is mine. So why do I want a review if it's not open?

"Grete: At this time our content department processes these inquiries. At this time the bridge program is not open, however if you would like to have our Content manager review your portfolio, you may submit it to them through support@bigstockphoto.com ATTN Content "

I suppose it's time to stop asking?

is this still an invitation only program?
