Isn't that shooting yourself in the foot if you upload to Alamy and AS as well as Eyeem? If two identical images are accepted, you'll surely get less commission from Eyeem as you'll get the distributor price vs standard royalties on AS and AL.
Since they mess up the metadata via EyeEm, the picture can appear in different type of searches...

I think that was also somewhere mentioned by eyeem staff about nonexclusive content on istock or 500px or any other place that gets distributed to getty as well.

The eyeem collection has new metadata and it has its own ranking in the getty system. I havent yet been able to find my duplicate files together in a test search.

I always thought it was stupid to destroy our metadata and replace it with irrelevant keywords and descriptions. Now I know they are genius instead.

I had a few hundred photos on EyeEm for about a year and a half. Half of them were selected for sale on Getty. I made a few sales, not enough for it to be worthwhile for me.

At the beginning of this year I closed a few accounts with stock agencies that were not selling my images so that I could focus on the agencies where my photos do sell.

I closed my account with EyeEm in early February. Most of my photos have been removed, but there are still a few dozen available for sale. I received notice of a sale by email at the end of February. EyeEm support says they have no record of the sale "on their side" (it was a Getty sale) so they are not going to pay me, despite the fact that I provided confirmation of the sale. I can no longer login to my account. I have been back and forth with EyeEm Support for about a month. My photos are still available for sale, and I am not being paid.

Overall, this has been a very disappointing experience.
