Much, much better than Istock though.

I get 17% with istock and 30% with SS.  I would prefer 50% but SS are selling lots and it's much better than their main competitor.  I hope this works, I'm sure lots of people would want this option.

Low by what yardstick? The lowest amount there for a newbie is the "Yuri rate" at iStock...

Sounds good to me.  No complaints about another revenue stream added by my top earner.  I hope it takes off hugely :)

I'm a bit confused as to where this leaves BigStock though.  I thought that was their individual sales avenue.

I'm looking at it from the point of view of exclusives who might see this as an opportunity, compared to exclusive royalties at iStock, it would still be a big hit to go non-exclusive....not comparing to independent.

Can anyone point me to their sizes?  The refer to high resolution and small and medium (on buyers side), but I can't find their definition.

"For the first time, were offering customers in certain markets the option to purchase one Shutterstock image download at a time."

I would like to know what "certain markets" they mean. I hope that includes me. I would love to have access to that huge library without having to buy a package!

Poor Fotolia.  If they were feeling desperate this morning, just imagine how they feel now...

Royalties look very competitive to me.  The graduated scale gives incentive.  30% as the high end seems reasonable.  Sure, it could always be more, but beats my 19% from Istock...

Hope this is a big success for SS and contributors :)

If you go to shutterstock.com you will see the option on the front right... 1 high res $19.

do you remember any cut from SS since they started? I know they had a raise from 20 to 25cents right?

the more agencies cut the more they will be punished, dont understand how can they keep on playing that way..

Not available in Europe, it seems. Or at least not in my area of Europe... Still interesting though.

Ah AH Ah!!!
Very funny!!! Shutterstock was the only agency to start with subscriptions, and now, when all the other agencies have subscription and are cutting contributors earnings, SS start a single sale with 30% commission!!! I can only congrats them, FT and IS are really tricked !

is this the IS/DT/FT killer? I have high hopes for this one, I hope though they don't screw up the pricing.

The Royalties could be better, but 30% is MUCH more than 17% I get at IS

While things continue to get worse at FT & IS, they just keep improving at Shutterstock! Thank you Shutterstock!!

Isn't it great to know that, if you just wait long enough... something good turns up.

Hot on the heels of a big upswing at 123RF.... ooh, I've come over all... optimistic :)

Percentages mean nothing, what you should be looking at is the actual $ amount you receive on a like for like basis, as happy as I am that Shutterstock are offering this, for the same size image download I personally would still get more in commission at iS for the same size image download than I would under this new SS scheme. Obviously it's going to be different on a per contributor basis.

Too many people on this forum fall into the naive "percentages" trap, you're licensing your images on these agencies for a financial return.

RT, I'm sure some agency soon discovers a way to sell images for $1000 a pop. And then they could give 1% = $10 to you and you would be happy because "it's more than I get at IS" and not at all bothered that you have financed the CEO's new Mercedes?

I think there is some levels of royalty percentage that is considered "fair". In traditional stock (in Ye Olde Slide times) 50/50 split was considered fair. Nowdays at micros seems that 30% is "fair". 17% is crap.
