One sale this month. Twice the normal, though. $4 instead of $2.

What's the number of photos in your ports? I recently started and I have some but the tagging (10keywords) restricts things

22 sales for $19 it seems this agency is becoming a lottery ticket, it would be nice to know upfront how much you get per image.

I don't get it how all the numbers are rounded. If it's some % of what the customer paid, there should be for example 19.2 (or even 19.24). Something is not quite right, they should give royalty info for every single sold image like Photospin and IS.
BTW I don't have plans to support their new system.

Not very encouraging trend.

That is awful. Aren't they exclusive too? Better off just doing SS and AS at that rate.

They not exclusive, they changed to a new system where they allocate money to the amount of images use per month and split that with their monthly cost based on your images use. It just sounds like a ripoff to me. Especially when you giving client unlimited downloads. This monthly i basically made the same amount as last month with double the amount of sales as the previous month.

They are non exclusive, but with results like these, they will only get content suitable for those price levels. Might also deaktivate some files, we will see. But I do have content for low earner agencies.

I gave them some really nice stuff...if they dont want that, their choice.

But I am still in wait and see mode. People make mistakes, agencies change their planes and strategies.

They are very new, Ill put them on observation and focus my attention elsewhere.

Cheers,

FWIW, envato is a place I never really got along with because their upload system is some kind of torture chamber for stock artists. Not sure if that has changed.

If as they write they will double what they pay out in the future and volume goes up, the combination of send it to twenty20 and get envato volume sales might get interesting for a certain part of my content.

It would be great to know what kind of percentage we actually get...but...transparency is not in fashion...

It might be a good option for stock newbies. twenty20 doesn't seem to reject anything, they have a nice app and a very useful Pinterest style gallery system.

I also appreciate a welcome bonus payment, at least some thought has been put into it.

So we will see.

First I've heard of this site and it is probably the worst one out there.  This is the bottom of the race to the bottom only thing lower is free.

They were originally paying out 10 dollars, then 5, then 2 dollars a download for quite some time.

A few months ago they changed their system and now I seem to be getting 30-50 cents. Disappointing to before, but not very different from Shutterstock.

If they will now double that, it will be 60 cents to a dollar, which is perfectly reasonable for ultra generic content.

So, not really that dramatic and none of the 2 cents downloads getty likes to give us.

It costs $99 to download as many files as you want.  If someone downloaded 10,000 files in a month you would get 99/10,000 or less than 1 penny each.  They could download 1,000,000 and you get 1 penny per 100 files (and then see discs of them for sale on ebay).

Yes, I know. At the moment I am getting 30-50 cents.

There is theory, there is the real world.

The only place licensing my files for 2 cents and often for far less than 1 cent is Gettyimages.

Have you read the terms, they basically can pay whatever they feel like.  Did you know that they can take a cut of your sales for directing clients to buy things from non-contributors for example.

How can it get any worse than  gettyimages?

These people gave my files away for free over 1.3 million times...

I'd say for now I have more faith in twenty20. Whatever you potentially accuse them of, Getty has already done to thousands of producers.

It is not a major player anyway, they are a tiny outfit. They are not going to be the next Shutterstock.

But they have a really lovely gallery system, the most useful I know from any agency.

Your argument is that Getty is terrible but you still contribute there so who cares about all the other sites.
