I like the look of GL Stock and have signed up. However, I really don't know where I should be setting my price level. I sell a mix of photos and vectors and wondered what the rest of you do?

What are sales like there? Do any of you have prices set at different levels and, if so, do you notice that the lower priced images sell better?

 ??? :-\

I do mostly illustrations and set my prices based on complexity. All price bands seem to sell equally well for me.

I used to see great sales on GL, with aggressive growth.  Then they renamed themselves, redesigned the site, and most importantly, changed their whole pricing structure to be more competitive, which resulted in much lower commissions for me.  I raised my pricing to compensate, but that may have just ended up pushing buyers to my lower priced competition.  I had been tracking at 2x year-ago levels, then after the change, I'm well below where my earnings were last year.

I still like the site and the owners, and uploading is the easiest of all the agencies, so I'll stick with them and hope they see some growth.

Thanks Microbius and Stockmaketer  :)

I haven't had any sales yet and have everything set at $10. Perhaps I'll drop down some of the simpler images to compete with the masses. It does look like the majority of contributors price at the lowest level.

I really like the site and the upload process, etc. but I think it's a shame that their system prices a vector the same as a large jpeg. I would be happier if I could set the large jpeg to $6 but price the vector at $10.
