I think this 100% commission business model is working well for both of us.  Let's see if anybody come up with above 100% commission site.

Seriously, if the sales on VideoBlocks continue to grow and exceed other major sites, I'll withdraw all my contents on other much lower paying sites.  That's my business model for the future.

You said earlier that sales were falling back ("0 sales in 10 days") and now suddenly it's going well again?

Yes, it started to sell again.   :)

I hope their customer base will grow.  win-win for both of us!

If it's a new marketplace or agency I would expect sales to go up and down, while they are building a customer base.

ok, I'll bite, I am sending up a few files provided I can delete them anytime and they are not distributed to other sites.

if they have sublicensing Deals, then please direct me to the opt out button...

ETA: already found something I dont like: visible download numbers :(

They dont help the customer, because the content could be downloaded millions of times on other stock sites, and encourage copy cats who can easily pick and see what is worth copying.

Shutterstock doesnt have them, no high end macro site has them...please reconsider...

Shutterstock lists clips by popularity which happens to be sales numbers among other stuff.At least for my portfolio it is prerry indicative of what has sold the most.Pond5 also shows number of sales.A few other sites also list views and sales.
SO it's not very difficult pretty much in every agency out there to pretty much find out what sells best.

Why am i not still convinced about this videoblocks deal?
Being on par with ME tells me nothing since ME is pretty much non-existent.Dont know about fotolia and revostock,i dont have a personal experience, but it seems that there are not many sales there for those who report so videoblocks can't be judged by the number of sales compared to these sites or any other site for that matter.

Anyway im not anxious to join them anyway.

I am not expecting to get rich over night, but its an interesting concept, so I will upload some files and check back in 6 months. As long as i can delete my files, its ok.

I am not criticising you, i might do that as well at some point since you can delete your clips from the console.

I didnt take it as critique, just a normal pro and con discussion. :)
