Is it worth uploading there?

I have had two sales in about 6 months with about 250 vids.  They need to remove their Asian inspired market approach and broaden their reach, but thats me being selfish.  I can't tell you yes or no but I will keep uploading there but I have stopped uploading to revostock. No sales at all in 6 months.

I have only 7 vids online, but 3 sales in 14 months. Statistically irrelevant maybe, but I like the fact I can set my own prices (I have set it at $79).

ME is a very strange place.There are a couple of threads here,i suggest you read them.As i was about to quit after 4 months with 300 files and 1 sale,i got 3 good priced sales on late December (some prices even higher than p5 to test the waters) where SS stopped selling for me for 2-3 weeks.At this point i have full port and am anxious to see where this goes.
Everything there is just plain weird though.

There is no curation at all,so you need to be very careful especially with releases and editorial content,the categories.. -god knows how they work and if they mean anything-,sometimes your footage gets buried sometimes it stays on the of the first page of the category you tag it to (people,timelapse,nature,etc) .
Another irritating bug is that the clip title (not the description) has a character cap.Not good for people who use long sentences to describe their footage.
There are also minor paypal fees,which is plain annoying,and generally there is a certain deal of surrealism going on.
For example,when you sell your clips,the dashboard shows the search keywords that were used to locate these clips.
Man have i seen the most weird and absurd keywords people have used to locate my footage.Completely irrelevant is a very nice way to put it.
Not that this means anything,but if you sell there,you'll see. :o

Now truth be told,the uploading and tagging system is the fastest i've seen,you can control and associate different resolution clips with a click,change the screenshot,and it kind of saddens me to see such a nice system there and not at SS for example or p5 (some aspects of it).
Finally and most impostant, 50% commission and you get to price your clips.
That's what keeps me there.
I expect this year ME to sell what i should have sold over at CC,which seems half-dead to me anyway.
Try it and keep us posted,i sure hope ME to become my no3.

That's a discouraging info.  Thanks!

That's not bad.

Maybe they are not strong on legal issues and don't have confidence from corporate clients compare to SS.
