Those who contribute to Member library, are you aware that you offer unlimited downloads to clients for 16.6$ per month?


They are advertising doubled income to contributors, but reality is a lot different.
You may earn more short term, but you offer your clips for cents.

And for those who also contribute to Dissolve, it is a chain reaction.

Your clips are now offered for 29$ at Dissolve.

Really? I just checked and it's at $49 so you are spreading misinformation.

Lucky you that you weren't discovered!

Dissolve is searching Storyblocks for the same clips offered in their database.

Dissolve changed our pricing from $79 back down to $49 very recently and quite secretly without telling us contributors. They have some questionable actions. I had just begun uploading again before this latest debacle so informed then my uploading was back on indefinite suspension.

I wonder if they are basing their prices on how many sites the content can be found. Mine ks at 49 which happened without notice. That 29$ pricing is concerning and Ill pull my entire portfolio if they pull that with me

23rd of February:

Update about the pricing plan weve set a date for receiving the lists of subscription clips to March 31. Please provide it by that date. Well be moving collections that have content in subscription plans to our $29 HD / $179 4K tier on April 1st.
For the subscription buyer, on a per clip basis, unlimited downloads is nearly free versus a-la-carte pricing and is too wide a disparity.



Clips that are not in Member library were not affected.

this is the most catastrophic movement ive ever seen , simply for 49$ , you can buy all clips , then bugger off , you know what i think its actually worth to stop producing content already .

Its $39 a month currently, and this is nothing new... they've been offering the subscription service for well over ten years.

Well it certainly lacks my content! I removed all my videos and asked them to delete my account.  :)

I had some fun with them, I had thousands of clips there, well over 20,000 so there was no way to delete them and their support was non-responsive so I went into my account and changed the program to Storyblocks is a scam, made up a matching email and registered the account to storyblocks is a scam and hit save and next day all traces of my clips and account GONE.

Is there anyone who did join their member library and would like to chime in on how revenue is growing/shrinking? I'm curious to see if Storyblocks lives up to its promises. Please pm me if you don't like sharing it publicly.

Doing some quick searches show that their content is quite limited. That's fortunate.
Stay away and let's keep it that way!
