I just noticed one of the rudest rejection reasons there is: "image overpriced for this category". Around 5-6 rejected for being overpriced (20$ + allow resizing / EPS vectors).

It's acceptable that FP targets "budget buyers" or that these particular images could be deemed unsuitable for this price rank, but that's mostly a decision the submitter has to take and an agency like FP that allows pricing options should NOT interfere with his choices. A big minus for such a cosy upload-friendly site. I might stop uploading at all (well, it's not that payouts are frequent anyways).

p.s.: I tried pricing vectors lower on FP (considerably lower - if I'm not wrong around 5$) but the sales were ridiculous. Web resolutions for pennies... not my cup of tea where there is no quantity factors making up for it.
p.p.s.: Here's a sample of one of the rejected images:


Of course it's not about the rejection per se, but the manner and reason for it.

I can't understand these price rejections at all... If they don't want more expensive images, why don't they just put a  max price.

I've never heard of this type of rejection, and I have images (photos) priced high there, so I would recommend contacting support.

A lot of images are over priced at FP and other places! you want to sell more photos at these places then drop the price. the buyers know, that's why they buy from the other one that sell the same photos for a lot less.

Exactly. If they wanted to "cap" prices, why do they offer choice options in the first place?

p.s.: I tried pricing all my port lower, but the income didn't add up. Actually it was even worse (buyers usually go for the web resolutions anyways (at least in my case speaking of FP)).
p.p.s.: As said earlier: a big letdown, especially since I kind of have a soft spot for FP's uploading procedure.
