At the rate I'm selling photos on Storyblocks it should take me roughly 300 years to meet the minimum payout level.

They should combine Video and Photo sales.

No photo sales too.  I won't upload any photos anymore till I see steady sales.

Pond5 too seems like photography roadkill.

Vic said it best in one of his videos where he said he treats sales on Pond5 as "a lottery ticket", so better to have high prices since they're so rare.

When will these unproven sites understand that the easier the upload, the more likely that we persevere with them?

If their upload system was easy, then I'd probably still send up. Nothing ventured etc. BUT....
the rigmarole of temporary ftp which needs resetting every time....
life is too short for such a small sales agency!

Oh well.

I'd like to see it combined with video sales as well. Otherwise it takes months to reach minimum payout for photos/images alone.

I agree that their ftp upload is too much of a PITA to bother with.  However, they have a pretty good web uploader, so that is how I send my images to them.

So once you'd gone through the horrible uploading process and got them approved... you decided to delete them?

Isn't that like queuing hours for a buffet, and then leaving in protest as soon as you get to the front of the queue?
