Hi!

Im returning to uploading and want to upload all my files to EyEm. However there is a problem, i was an old non-exclusive istock contributor and i guess my files are now selling on Getty or whatever, not sure exactly what happened when we agreed to the shift a long time ago but, i login to ESP and see/request the earnings from there, not much at all...

Anyhow Eyem says that the files uploaded to them will possibly be sent to getty for review of selling also at Getty. I wrote to Eyems costumer service and asked them if i could upload my old files, or if there is a risk of "collision" and duplicated if they get accepted also at Getty. They shortly answered: "yes there is such a risk".

My questions to you:
1. How much of the earnings from Eyem comes from the Getty Partner channel in you experience?
2. If the Getty part of sales is low, maybe I could opt out of this getty thing and upload only to EyEm?
3. Maybe i can delete my old istock files from Getty, they are not selling that well at all...  would it be worth it/doable?

Yes i am selling only non-exclusive and plan to keep doing so with all my photos

Hope you can help me shed some light on this!

I sell on both EyeEm and Getty. Your question is a good one. I do not know the answer. I my be shooting myself in the foot by doing both. I do sell a fair amount on EyeEm and that is why I have stayed with them. EyeEm is also very easy to upload.  As Dylon said so well " The answer my friend is blowing in the wind"...

I sell on EyeEm and IStock as well. I used to have very good sales from EyeEm until it just hit the wall right before summer last year. Coincidently, I started contributing to IStock in march 2019. I upload more or less the same files on both. Did that have anything to do with it.. who knows... But it makes sense that Getty would prioritize selling images through their own channels.

Many other contributors have also reported decreasing sales from EyeEm though. So this is all just speculation.

The other question:
1. Most of the sales come from Getty. Roughly 90% or so. However, sometimes you may get big sales via EyeEm's own market. Over $125 per image or so. But these are extremely rare.
2. I'm not sure if you can opt-out of partner sales. Correct me if I'm wrong.
3. Does deleting the IStock files help anything? Hard to say...

EyeEm used to be my top-selling agency before it became quiet. It still sells but not nearly as good as it used to. My IStock sales have passed EyeEm already and I have only 400 or so images in there.

Hope this helped.

Uploading to EyeEm seems like a worse and worse idea, I saw that their partners, that they send your files to, do not only include Getty, but also Adobe Stock and Alamy!

How can be as non-exclusive contributors upload to them when we already upload to these major sites???

It will send files that we already have on these platforms, create duplicates? Lead to deletions on some part? Or what will happen?

Then EyeEm is in fact some kind of uploading tool in disguise that steals a part of our profit?
