Will SS muck up Bigstock next?

(1/2) > >>

Hannafate:
Shutterstock has finally made themselves into the Wal-Mart of stock photography.  They will probably still make a profit from selling tons of totally crappy images at "low everyday prices".   But, I don't think that will satisfy their corporate greed.

My concern it that they'll turn to Bigstock next.

My sales there are pathetic, and have been for some time.  I'm wondering if I should bail out before things get weird.

Although, Shutterstock's most likely move may be to simply close Bigstock.

What do you all think?

Roscoe:
Nobody really cares about BigStock. They can do with it whatever they want as far as I'm concerned. It's a very low earning agency, impact will be minimal.

Justanotherphotographer:
For anyone not on bridge bigstock is already almost the worst paying site out there.

JustAnImage:
My BigStock experiemce:
- makes 1.89% of my revenue
- lowest RPD $0.27 of all agencies I upload to (quit IStock last year, so now BigStock is the lowest)
- the site is buggy for uploading
- rejection reasons are ridiculous like SS
- support told several times 'we will fix this', nothing happened



Bad Robot:
Bigstock already operates a form of royalty reset based on a rolling 12 months.

To be honest its already messed up and sales have pretty much dried up except for the odd 27 cent sale.

I quit uploading there a few months back there was just no point anymore.
