Bigstock, good or bad to upload to?

They used to be ok. If you are with the "Bridge to Bigstock" they still might be. Otherwise they are SS's site to play with screwing contributors. Mostly subs - for less than you would get at SS.

My sales are about 15% of what they once were a couple years ago at BigStock.

I'm on the "Bridge to Bigstock" so all of my files from Shutterstock are automatically in the Bigstock portfolio. If that wasn't the case, I don't think I'd bother uploading.

To upload to or for sales?  They are easy to upload to and usually have fast reviews.  Sales are slow and not a great return to contributors with their RC system.  Are they worth the effort?  You'll have to decide that for yourself.

Nearly impossible to upload.

The bridge has been broken since mid December...

My last five images accepted (today) at SS have been moved via Bridge to my BS portfolio.
But that leaves about 70 images that are still missing from the last month or so.

Not always good or bad, just not worth the time for low return.

Bad. On my list of sites to avoid. Very low rpd. If we upload there ss could assume we'd be happy with much lower rpds on the main site too.

BAD. If files are accepted than there is no way to disable or delete them. We have to contact support for removal of any image.

To be fair to them, the couple of times I asked to have images removed, they responded right away and took care of it.  Not ideal to have to ask, but not a big problem either.
