Title: videoblocks/storblocks 50% commission - now also super picky
Post by: SuperPhoto on September 20, 2018, 10:45
Aside from VB/SB taking 50% of commissions now (from as far as I can tell no additional marketing effort) - I have noticed they have gotten *extremely* picky on new content they are accepting. (And sometimes the reasons aren't really legitimate - i.e., you might have a shot where it makes sense to have it slightly defocused - i.e., artistic merit - but instead, it's like they are just going down a checklist, and if there is any blur, an automatic rejection).

While of course I make sure I have good video footage, just surprised at % of rejections now.

Has anyone else noticed the same thing? (Also, I haven't yet noticed any increase in sales, if anything, a slightly decrease. Not that I was getting that much from them to start with, just...)

If English is not your native language, click on Forum towards the top of the page, then scroll towards the bottom. There are other language forums, maybe you can post in one of those?

It seems strange. Nothing's changed for me. Also, no promised increase of sales
