Title: How to select price tier for footage?
Post by: Dodie on October 02, 2016, 17:04
Can anyone please explain how to select price tier (v1, v2, v3) upon upload video. Why is v1 in red?
Many thanks.

I always select v3. Already selected one is indicated in red color.

4K for $800 and HD for $330? :) Quite a crazy rich person should buy there since there are no exclusivities as far as I know.
I assume you have some sharkback riding or landing on the moon footages in 4K...
They hardly sell 10% of my Shutterstock volume even in v2 and I'll definitely choose v1 in Stocksubmitter for all further uploads.

Why undercut your sales on other sites with v1? I choose v2, because in v1 HD is priced too cheap.

I started putting everything in V2, and I wrote twice to 123rf about mass change to v2, but more than half of footage are still in v1 <_< They did reply twice, that technicians did change, but I don't see it happening.

Sales on V1 are poor too, so it wont hurt having them in V2.

v1 pricing is OK in general (65), but what comission do they take exactly, 75%?

I still couldn't find out what's their cut but if it's 70% than v1 is not much cheaper than SS pays:
v1 (HD) = 65 credits

SS price in Europe for HD:
59 = $66.29 (today) x 30% our cut

If I'm right, v1 is not quite undercutting.

Anyone knows what is their cut?

Thanks, now I know what the red means. I have not uploaded for a long time, in fact, I tried but the uploaded files just vanished, couldn't find them anywhere, so I gave up. Now I want to try again.

After you upload your files through FTP, go to 'Upload' then select 'Footage' and proceed. The system will have your files somewhere in limbo and will start pulling them in after you do this.

Sorry, I meant their 4K is priced too cheap ($130). Although v2 is priced $330 (too high in my opinion), I'd still choose v2.
