If that's the best price you got, why on earth do you sell video there?

No you can also get 9$ sales for video as non exclusive.

Yeah they're quite regular but I guess it depends of the subject matter of your portfolio. If you start getting low sales for video thou through their partners or low res, 'higher' sales should technically follow, give them a few more months.

I've had sales recently where my cut was $99.80. I'm non-exclusive. So, it can happen, but the lower amounts outweigh the higher ones.  :(

I see you posted this question in its own thread as well as the November stats one so I'll reply here too...

I've sold one for as much as $108.17 (presumably an extended license) but I've also sold them for a lot less, indeed, for as little as $0.11.

My overall RPD for video on iStock is $4.51, since ESP;  not very impressive!  I am non-exclusive for video though, and rarely upload any to iStock nowadays unless they're ones that never sold anywhere else as it simply doesn't seem worth it.

You do get better rates if you become Exclusive, but as they don't accept editorial video that isn't an option as far as I'm concerned.

Indeed, they don't do editorial video.

 :-\ I really don't get any non exclusive supplies videos there. My average is 35$ on the 5 places I sell. From low shutterstock where my average is 20$ (my cut) to P5 where my average in 60$ net. 063 ?? just don't get it why people would not only waste time but also throw rocks to the other agencies that pay them much more for every sale...........................

I have not supplied video to Getty for years now, happy what I get from them each month but going forward it did not make sense to upload my files there at that pricing. They will miss out on all of my new medical shoots I am doing in 2019 :-)
