Bigstock Bullsh*t Earnings

(1/1)

"How to earn less than $1 a month on 3,870 images" by a donkey BigStock contributor

Sept 2019, I earned a relatively high $24 on 3,667 images.

Have your sales also collapsed?

stockmarketer:
I've seen a falloff but not quite as severe as yours. I'm doing about $8 / day on BigStock, down about 30% vs 2019.

This is with a port of 10,000+ images.

eyewave:
In the "good times" I used to make $100+/month there, last month it was a whopping $6

(short of 10K images there  I think)

Hannafate:
I don't normally leave a site just because sales are slow (looking at you Canstock and Dreamstime), but I've been planning to leave Bigstock as soon as I get my next payout.  I don't trust the security of my images there because they are owned by Shutterstock. *ptui*

Sales have slowed down so much though, that I may leave without the payout.  It's taking too long, and I imagine Shutterstock looking at Bigstock for their next weird experiments.

I finally pulled the plug on Bigstock last week and closed my entire account. I was below the payment threshold, and after contacting support a couple of times I got someone helpful who immediately closed my account and scheduled my payment to go out with Octobers payments (I received a payment email from Bigstock to confirm this is the case).

So seems you don't have to wait for a payout if you want to leave.
