Title: Twenty20 - Another photostock agency
Post by: jasonlee3071 on July 07, 2020, 21:05
Last year I registered with this agency called "Twenty20". It's run by Envato. I know that website also sells photostock but they also have this as a separate agency. Why I'm not sure.
Does anyone else here sell pics through them?
For those not familiar with this company here is their website: https://www.twenty20.com/discover (https://www.twenty20.com/discover)
I've made about 4 dollars so far selling 4 pics.
But as I'm a beginner who only started getting into the photostock business as of last year that is probably a small accomplishment.
Nothing to really brag about but at same time nothing to really cry about either.
What I like about them is that they have no minimum threshold or payout level.
Unlike other sites where you have to reach 50 or a hundred dollars in sales before you can collect anything.

Well, getting unlimited images for 16.50$ / month is not going to get a lot of traction among content creators here. They are together with Envato Elements another one responsible for the race to the bottom. Although I sell some clips through Envato I stay away from Elements.

And about the paying level, if you stay with serious agencies (a few nowadays I know) you should be able to collect those hundreds of dollars you talk about. If you stay with Envato Elements Twenty20, Bigstock, Canstock, etc etc you will always be looking at one or two digits payouts. Up your game and quality and leave those suckers behind. Not a good strategy in the medium long run to stay with them.

Excellent advice. If the OP is wise, he will take it.

Look in the right column. Top tier and top ten of the middle tier. Others at your own risk.

Well good for you. Sounds really encouraging. Unlike previous comments regarding this website it does seem that some people are profiting from this site. As for Shutterstock I  would like to know how many people will still be making that much on that site right now.
