Is here anyone that has the same portfolio on Shutterstock and Deposit photos?

How do you compare sales? And how much do you get per sale at Deposit?

I upload to Shutterstock and I am thinking to start uploading to Depositphotos.


Thanks!

Nope not anymore, that was ages back. Nothing wrong with them now. They sell well at times but not comparing to SS.

What makes you so sure? I don't trust them at all and I don't upload there anymore!
But for example On demand XL sale paying Silver contributor just $0,32!? What the f**k is this?

I don't think I've had a sale yet at DP in over two years. At SS I get about $200 a month.

Goes to show different agencies can work so differently for different people......sometimes you just have to stick a toe in the water.

Wait sorry... just seen the thread is regarding photos. I was on about video. And to be fair, they are called deposit 'photo's!

I keep uploading just because it's very easy there. Sales are basically flat for last years, DP makes 2,5% of what I get from SS.
