For years now. Do a search here, Im sure it was talked about when it happened. They even had a bridge so you could mirror your images on whichever site you werent already on.

If you Google "Bigstock", the first thing that pops up is "Owner: Shutterstock Inc."...

No, the minimum is 0.25. Don't know if they have levels but sales are very poor to me.

I use to have problems to submit when I send a lot of pictures (rejections for "file transfer error") and rejections with the same program that SS uses with stupid reasons.

LOL, yeah, even worse in some ways. (until now) If they had kept the bridge, I would have stayed with BS, just for whatever fell on me and the easy adding of photos, because I could upload once and forget about them. BS used to pay 50c minimum per download before the company was sold.

Note: I didn't think of this until after I posted it. 25 is more than 10 ?

When the review problems started, I stopped uploading there. After the 0.10 stopped SS too.

I can sell for peanuts in IS if I want with 0 problems with my pictures. In fact, my rpd is higher there now, because almost all my pictures are selling under the 0.25 in SS.

Maybe AS or AL will work for me in the future, don't now. Not now.
