Title: Shutter Stock account closing
Post by: sanjiv on May 03, 2021, 03:23
Dear all,
Hello from Paris of the East :-)
Closed my account on SS after 10 year. Same issue what started last year with ranking going to zero on Jan 1st and paid 10c. each download. It is crap.
  Many of you have already closed your account last year, some were still thinking that since images are already there, no mined to close, may be not upload new material. I was in that boat. 
Although I was hanging there for long enough but it's really long now. I don't see me going up on ranking. Might close 123RF as well, I have some issue with them about not corresponding proper if any problem, and sales are dull.
That leave me with DT, IS and Fotolia.

Happy Monday :-)

Sanjiv

In March I did the same thing.... And I'm very happy with that  :)

I'm still waiting to receive that "large sum of money" they owe me :))))

Sebastian Radu, thank you for the reminder that indeed little money get paid out from shutterstock (and eyeEm), if you close the account.
After deleting 99% of my images there and left the worst one, I was not thinking that I could ever get money from that.

I was offered to transfer the funds before you finally close the account :-)
I said F.. it, Don't want, just get it over :-)
