I noticed that I sold a video for $27.06, meaning the client paid $54.12, even though the video was priced $69. That's almost 22% less. What is going on, is this a discount?
If so, does Pond5 expect us contributors to share the burden? If I had known this, I would have priced my videos higher to counter the lower royalties.

This started a few years back; I'm surprised you haven't noticed it before. Though the discounts do seem to be even more common recently.

Yes, it's annoying to see the discounts.  They give discounts to big buyers and those who bought discount credits.  20% discount is too much.  10% should be max.  I hate to see those.
