Looking at the RF image license prices a vector file costs 5 times less than the smallest JPG and 36 times less than the XXLarge JPG (that can be easily created from the vector file with a free software). So now I am wondering: should I replace my vector files with large JPGs?

What do you think? Any advice appreciated.

I have no experience of selling vectors via Alamy and I don't know anyone who does.

But I will caution you that at least for photos, the price on Alamy's page and the real price paid are very seldom the same, by a considerable margin.
It's all about the discount the buyer has negotiated.

Thanks.
Most of my sales correspond to the price shown here (unfortunately), so that's not the problem (I mean it is, but not for me). Do you get $9.99 or lower downloads for images? (I am talking about sales price, so ~$4 comission)

Oh yes, often, and lower. Sometimes (not very often) under $1 net (distributor sale, bulk discount) - I think my lowest was 63c (net).

Yes I do, I get some lower partner sales. I have no idea what a price is supposed to be on Alamy.

Never sold a vector, I have roughly 200 illustrations 191 are jpegs, one sale: Country: Worldwide
Usage: Personal use, Personal prints, cards and gifts. Non-commercial use only, not for resale. $19.99

My 20 best selling images on SS, including some illustrations, not one has ever sold on Alamy. Some of the same images, have sales on Adobe and IS over the years.

Alamy is a nice 40% when something sells, or 50% for some of mine, but don't count on many sales, or the same things that sell on Microstock. Just like I sell different subjects and images on Adobe.

Everyone is different, maybe you'l ldo better? I'm not an original art illustrator like you.
