Hi Elena,
I think I read somewhere that you can set your own price on your site... is that true? And up to how much can you set it?
Thanks

I know I'm not Elena, but she has microstock and midstock. She has set price stucture for the microstock. The midstock you can set your prices but agree that you don't have these same photos on microstock agencies. I don't remember if there is a requirement to have these midstock images on line or not. As for the midstock you can set your own price up to $75.00, unless she's changed it

ahah no problem  ;)

I do have works that I would sell as mid or macro stock (matte paintings and digital paintings) that I do not sell as micro. But I would sell them only if I can set the price up to $100-200 and no less.

Thank you anyway.

Congrats! Madelaide on your sale, it is such a rare event nowadays for FP to make a sale, I can't even remember when it was the last time I made any kind of money with them...it's really getting tiredsome checking every week to see the same amount of $ just sitting there. :-\

I get an email every time they sell something, saves time checking there.  I had one recently but the lower prices and commissions have reduced my earnings.  I used to get the same low number of sales but when I did get one, it was usually for a nice commission.  Now it is really hard to see why I should stay there after my next payout.  It will take a while to reach that, so they still have some time to improve but after the last few years, I don't see it happening.

My sentiments exactly Sharpshot, I'm about $26.00 short of reaching my next payout, but at the rate they're going we may be talking a couple of more years before that happens, lol, but I'll tell you something, after Elena mention that she would pay any accumulated commissions to anyone that wanted to close their account, I'm considering that option more and more every month.

I used to get an email for a sale, but for this recent one I didn't.

And all the site messages were removed, when I checked today.

I had much higher pricing which made up for slower sales there. Then they started making their changes. In 2008 ... $2.80 was on the low end of the commissions with $11.95 being on the high end. In 2009 .50 was on the low end with $2.50 being on the high end.

Some Samples:

$2.80               2008
$10.63             2008
$11.95             2008
$2.50         Nov 2009
$.50           Nov 2009

I had several. The last one was Nov 2009. After that I only had 7 sales with an average RPD of 2$. They lost their USP that you could set your own prices and that they had no subs. That's all gone. They're not Midstock any more. I kept them since they were the engine for my portfolio site, but I found another solution for that. Nothing keeps me there any more. I expect them to die a gentle natural death soon. The stock world will soon belong to StinkStockers with 20...10 cents subs.
