"You set the price for your media. Buyers pay what you want them to pay, and you can change the price of your items whenever you like.
You keep 70 percent commission on all sales; unheard of and unbeatable in the stock industry.
You receive monthly payments with no minimum of earning."


Oooh, I like that, good start!
Is it really for free??

They are using the same web template for their agency than Stocktal (who pay 78%). Neither of them has an imprint on their site.

Yes that part about setting your own price and collecting 70% sounds good  :).  However I just want to find someone who has experience with them to know what this is really all about.  Guess I'm just sick of spending hours and hours uploading to sites that end up showing pathetic sales at the end..

Yep, and it's getting boring a bit...

Looks like the website may have only been going 5 or 6 months. Probably need more time to build up a reputation as there doesn't seem to be a lot on them yet.

70% of nothing, is still nothing.

Ok, that's interesting... Two months ago I uploaded some files to see what happens and guess what. The pricing changed! Howcome? I set up my own, higher pricing but now I see files much cheaper... What's going on? Are we walking through the same as with stocktal?

Strange search.
You can't seem to separate keywords in the top box by commas (e.g. architecture, New York) and the first page for Architecture New York is identical to the first page for Architecture York. (They'd be better just admitting they don't any photos of York than showing these, which just wastes time deciding to search Architecture York England to get that message.) Also searching for Port of Spain throws a subset of Port Spain. More surprisingly, perhaps, a search for Port threw up a set of pics which confused me at first until I realised that searching for Port is throwing up Portraits.

As mentioned above, no owner identification details, or if they are, they are very well hidden. What are they trying to hide?

Ho-hum. Here we go again.

For now i don't see selling potential. But my time costs. Previews can be dragged alone, sign to expect more problems, slow response on user action, few authors sold files, too much contrast in totals between authors who sold many files and majority didn't sell nothing during months, but there are not only beginners, but experienced photogs. No info about owners can be easy found. An author with more than 11000 "stocky" files and more than 50000 views didn't sell nothing from october when he signed up. For now there is no reason for me to send them files.

Old topic but need to continue.

Long time ago I used to like giving a chance and support new sites trying in the market and so I uploaded some stuff to EzMediArt. At the begining the site was very far away from beeing ready for clients, but new site needs time to improve sometimes.
Earlier in the thread (21 Nov.) I wrote about the pricing changed accident. I though strange things may happen at the beginning, let's be patient.
Later (28 Nov.'14) I've found that in my collection there is not my image so I contacted EMA to remove it and fix the issue.
They deleted it... "Go through your portfolio to make sure that everything is how it should be."
I didn't find new one.
In the meanwhile they promised new improvements on the site. Do they offer the option of price change in bulk already?

Now, a month ago I've found another image in my colection that belong's to another author. I tried to delete it and other my images but couldn't so contacted EMA to remove it and fix the issue. Their response convinced me to get away from this place asap.
I tried to delete my whole collection and account with no result. This is what I got from them:

"We will delete all your images and your account at the end of a year. If you want to delete your images right now, you can do it yourself."

As above - I would, if I could...

Can anyone of you try to delete images from Ezmediart? Can you guys try if it works for you?

Can anyone tell me why should I support any new agency after the experiences with EMA, and many more who closed after failed start last two years (Pixyloo, Stocktal, Ultimatstock, Stockbo, Fox ... etc)?

I hope my opinion is any worth for guys who consider supporting new, unknown sites like above...

As it stated on the bottom of "My Publications" page - To delete approved submission change Status to Pending (Edit > Change). It works.
