I have just been on Eyeem's website and read there the following: "We partner with Getty Images, Adobe Stock, Alamy, and other photo platforms to distribute the best pictures you upload to their networks of image buyers."
Is that true? What's the point of me uploading there? I would only compete with myself and earn less. I upload myself directly to Adobe and Alamy. Is there a point uploading to Eyeem if I am uploading to iStock? Won't Getty anyway get my images because of iStock?

You answered your own question. There is no point uploading to another middle man company. Just like Zoonar! I've lost like 40% of my commissions plus the 30% from the original company (Alamy) due to these type of companies!

thing with eeyem is it pays good compare to istock and other agencies.i ve had some sales with them thats why i keep uploading..so maybe you can choose some photos for eyeem only and if they go to premioum collection ,you dont need to put them to istock for instance.if they go to their  market place then you can  put them  to istock couse. the market place has nothin to do with getty.
thats what i am doing.eyeem works if you wanna contribute to getty without the exclusivity

They don't just upload to Getty according to their website they upload to Alamy and even Adobe. I upload to Alamy and Adobe myself.

the the best solution is to choose a series of pics to eeyem only and if they go through their premioum collections dont upload the same images to other agencies only in ss.or stop uploadin to eyeem and you are done.

The big problem with Eyeem is that they have very poor automatic keywording and meantime no way to use my IPTC data from the images. About the duplicate content in Alamy, Getty etc. why you think the same images are placed on the same place in the search? That's the big reason to upload multiplicated images across same agencies, this multiplicate your chance same image to be seen from more buyers. It's all about collections...

I can only speak from my experience, since i started with iS, no more images got to Getty through EyEem!

And waiting if an image will be accepted for "Partner" could take up to 3-6 Months. >:(
