Hi,

Last month I decided to upload a batch of footage (about 30 clips) to different platforms to see how long takes the review time.

In spite that this time can vary depending on many variables and on the planets and stars line up here is my experience:

1- Fotolia: 1 day
2- ShutterStock: 3 days
3- Depositphotos: 4-5 days 
4- IStockPhoto: 9 days
5- Videoblocks: 13 days
6- 123RF: 16 days
7- Pixtastock: 18 days
8- Pond5: 20 days
9- Dissolve : 20 days

In my opinion review time is very important in order to start monetizing content, where in ShutterStock or Fotolia you can do it very soon, others your content can get even obsolete before it's online.

What do you think?

If your content is obsolete in two weeks it's not going to be worth uploading as stock.

Well you are right. It was just "Irony" :).

Its very important for editorial. If your work goes online too late, someone else at another agency has already made the money.

Just think of all the christmas markets and holiday festivals coming. Lots of opportunities to take great pictures and videos, but if they go online after christmas...

SS and fotolia are the fastest for me, pond5 is frustratingly slow.
