Hello! Currently BS has my lowest RPD. I have sold mostly 0.25 subs, and only ONE time, a picture for 3. Anyone sells there with a better RPD? Is there something else above 0.25-0.5 in Bigstock? I like the agencty but the cents are misery

Why would you expect any more when Shutterstock views it as their bargain basement outlet?

Is that so? So it means no one has rpd over 0.4?

Out of 2600 images (currently) I used to get $15 per month average in 2016 when I had half that number now I'm lucky to see $5 per month.

The uploader doesn't work properly and FTP upload doesn't work at all.

I get 27 cents on average so I stopped uploading.

The highest I ever got was the odd $1 or 50 cent download.

I'd say don't bother wasting your effort.

BS is dying for long periods for me. Apparently SS recruited more staff a while back to develop BS further. I find that very hard to believe. They'd be better off killing it and concentrating on getting the Shutterstock site to work properly.

Since February 1st, my sales are 27c instead of 25c, not complaining though.
Still can not figure which is worse BS or DP?

DP is horrible. Good thing is it's very easy to upload and it has a nice interface. BS seems outdated

From a sales/income  perspective DP is much better for me by a factor of about 4. Both take the same time to upload. For me they are the only two things that matter.

I got EL sale for 25$ and some 3 and 2$ sales, but that was about 3 years ago.

If this agency doesn't sell a picture for more than 3 usd from time to time, it's a waste of time... They also reject a lot with stupid reasons. I uploaded a bunch of science pics that were accepted in iS (without property problems, even if somehow you can see my lab) and in SS but in BS all rejected for intellectual property! Idek why, maybe because of the label of a chemical bottle... Total waste of time.

Was 50 then SS bought them, Now it's 25. I have no idea why they kept the site open except that people keep uploading and taking chicken feed for commission.
