Sure. Their payout threshold is low enough that I withdrew some of my earnings early, before they locked my account and pulled my portfolio several weeks later with no way to get to the rest of my earnings.

Like most stock sites, there are some dubious things about them, but nothing scary... like some sites we've been discussing.  So, I keep uploading there.  I like them all right.

I am thinking of pulling the plug on DP.  Getting $2.76 for an EL is disgraceful.

Well I uploaded a 100 or so and around 60% were rejected for 'lighting mistakes' all were accepted at IS, SS, FT, DT etc and included my best sellers, my most sold image was rejected as not suitable for commercial use LOL, now I'm feeling totally rejected so maybe I'll stick to the top tier ;D

Do You talk about Deposit.photos?
It is impossible that they reject anything.
They accept almost everything.
Almost is 99 %.
Not a joke.
For sure is acceptance on SS or IS or FT much lower.

put the pic on here for us to see- I think DP would take even a rotten tomato on faded dirty white board from what I've experienced.

Both the boats rejected for lighting and I accidentally uploaded the middle one twice and the first time it was rejected as needing a property release and the second time as not being suitable.

Beautiful Images.  I could understan how they might want a property release for the boats but not for the trees!!!

They contacted me about uploading. I said their prices and royalties were too low to consider it. They replied with an offer of an artificial bump to a higher royalty rate and special search placement.

Wow.  That's all I needed to hear.   End of discussion, for me.

But others will no doubt jump in and call me naive for thinking all the other agencies aren't running the same games.

I know for a fact, stock, that at least one other does.

I had 35 dollar EL today. No idea where that pricing came from, but it was DP for sure.

The only complaint I have about DP is the low prices.  I have the same complaint about other microstock sites, which is why I'm moving away from RF microstock and toward RM.  Low prices are great for buyers, of course, but I can no longer afford to produce images for this market.  As big as the demand for imagery is, the supply is even greater than the demand.  As long as that remains true, prices will continue to drop.  I predict that we'll see the day when sales won't be calculated for single images, but for groups of images.  Single-image returns will be below one cent.  The question is, then, how far we go before jumping ship.  How much will we tolerate?  Are we willing to sell a dozen images for ten cents?  Fifty images for 30 cents?  I bet some of us will.

According to Yu-know-who, posted on this very site, in reply to a query about something he'd written on his blog about negotiating entry with agencies, they all do it except iS (at that time).
Nowadays, I'm guessing even iS has incentives for the faux-exclusives, e.g. getting their images fast-tracked to Agency even though they're not technically exclusive by iStock's normal definition of 'exclusive'.
