Title: Vecteezy - Anyone experience with them?
Post by: Pacesetter on October 13, 2021, 12:02
I been contacted three times this past week by a rep from Vecteezy telling me they love my work and portfolio (blush) and to apply with them to become a contributor. I don't have any vectors but have photos and videos which I see they sell on the site.

Anyone a contributor on Vecteezy and can share your experience? Thanks.

"we use the pay-per-download model, where you earn $5.00 per 1,000 downloads for vectors and photos, and $10.00 per 1,000 downloads for video"

"we use the pay-per-download model, where you earn $5.00 per 1,000 downloads for vectors and photos, and $10.00 per 1,000 downloads for video"

So $0,005 per photo and $0,010 per video.
Is anyone seriously using this service? Like, really? Anyone? Hello? I mean, come on - People are going nuts over some $0,10 commissions on SS, but are willing to get as little as 0,005 for photos - for every photo and every kind of licence, apparently?
1000 photo downloads earn me about an average  of $700-800 on Shutterstock, but people are willing to give away the same amount of photos for $5?

They also have Pay Per Download (PPD) Pro Earnings too which are calculated based on the Subscriber Share model.

Calculating the Percentage Earned from a Customerís Subscriber Share

Customer Z downloads 10 images in 1 month, from 4 different contributors.

    1 image is from Contributor A, earning 10% of Customer Z's Subscriber Share (1 image / 10 total downloads = 10%)
    4 images are from Contributor B, earning 40% of Customer Z's Subscriber Share (4 images / 10 total downloads = 40%)
    2 images are from Contributor C, earning 20% of Customer Z's Subscriber Share (2 images / 10 total downloads = 20%)
    3 images are from Contributor D, earning 30% of Customer Z's Subscriber Share (3 images / 10 total downloads = 10%)

I can see how this works but overall I'm not impressed so will give it a miss.

Thanks all.

a wise decision!

that's an extremely (purposely?) misleading example - no one contributor is going to get that high a % - at best, a few DL on THOUSANDS of shares

I have had 5 emails in the past few weeks from 2 different people at Vecteezy, I looked at their payment structures and will give it a miss.
My photos from shutterstock appear on there when I did a search so they are affiliated with them and Shutterstock pay bad enough except that I do sell enough on there to get monthly payments.
