I was wondering if we can go exclusive with them? If yes then what royalty do they offer?

No.

Well, yes someone could, but they don't pay us anything extra for doing that.  ;D

You are welcome to submit to Adobe Stock exclusively! The royalty rate we offer is 33% for images and 35% for videos. I should mention, that is the same rate we offer to those who are not submitting exclusively to Adobe Stock also ;)

Sadly, we do not have an exclusivity program, but I think it's great you would consider it if there was!

I was selling our dining room set for $500 or whatever, just to get it gone.  People would ask, how much for just the china cabinet, and I'd say $500, and you get a free table and 6 chairs.

No, but their royalty rates are much better than the other main MS sites. I would submit to adobe only if I could but many of my photos are editorial. They have stricter reviews than others but that turned out fine in the end because it improved my work.

Yes, you can.  Just don't upload to anywhere else.  You still get the same % as everybody else.  They will not penalize you for not uploading to anywhere else.

I'm curious to know where the idea of 15-30% royalties to authors in the stock industry came from in the first place? And why other areas have completely different numbers.
The biggest example is Apple: In-app subscriptions were originally introduced for magazines, newspapers and music apps in February 2011, giving developers 70% of revenue earned and Apple 30%. And Apple even had to prove in court that 30% is not much. Why isn't it like that in the image stock industry? Why don't we get 70%? Why has 30% become the norm in our industry?

It's simple really. Supply far outpacing demand. Agencies lowering compensation rates because they can, and in must to stay profitable. As long as there are people willing to accept 15 percent, or 10 cents, this is going to be the case.

Alamy used to have 60, then 50 and now 40 percent with some contributors down to 20. Business can not survive otherwise because of huge supply, caused largely by various technology advancements - inexpensive cameras, post-processing software and now AI.

I would def consider it. Adobe is the last legit microstock agency.
