Title: Bigstock Video
Post by: RAW on May 03, 2017, 12:29
Hi,

I just visited the Bigstock site and was shocked at the price of their videos.

Depending on the subscription plan they are selling HD videos from $0.53 to $1.58.

I've no idea what % they pay contributors for video but those rates are just appalling.

Who's uploading videos to them and why?

I hope no one is submitting.

I only upload to Pond5 and Shutterstock.  All other sites pay crap.

No one can submit directly to bigstock, bigstock have the right to sell with that price model because they bought the right to monetize the video from creators.

That must be true because BS never accepted videos from contributors. There is no mention about video upload or commission anywhere on the site.
