I am still new to stock photography. When I first started I of course applied to get on as many stock sites as I could. Big Stock was one of them, but for some reason after just a few uploads I stopped uploading to them. Now days I have a lot of images on Shutterstock and recently learned that Big Stock is owned by Shutterstock.

Here is my question, having few images on Bigstock for a a while I can see that those images sold well on Bigstock, yet those same images on Shutterstock did not sell even a 3rd the amount of times. So my brain is telling me that people purchasing photos are going to Shutterstock and doing their search and then going over to Bigstock and doing the same search and finding the same image they saw on Shutterstock except now for cheaper thus resulting in many sales on Bigstock for those images and a lot fewer sales of the same images on Shutterstock for the same images.

What do you more experienced stock photographers think? Should I upload to Bigstock?
