So did anyone get an invite for Vimeo Stock? https://vimeo.com/stock
I didn't. It seems to be exclusive only for now.

I applied the first day they announced Vimeo Stock, but haven't heard anything.

Me also, I applied on the very first day. Have not had any response up to know. I think they wrote as an automatic reply that they could contanct us only if they wanted to.

I am interested about it, but not holding my breath.
I have received a couple of email from them, but would not call them really an invite.
Video is an extremely difficult market to get into, many have failed.
Following with interest if someone has interesting input

If you want to do video, I strongly suggest looking into BlackBox.global. Video is a lot more work to submit than images, since none of the metadata goes with the files (as they do with JPG).

Also, BB aggregates all member videos, and thus negotiates a higher payout percentage. In fact, the % they get is high enough that, even after they take their 15% of the royalty, you end up with more $$ in your pocket than if you had submitted on your own.

     https://www.blackbox.global

If you do use them, I would appreciate your using my referral code -- JKX5J2D3 . Yeah, one of those "I get a small % that comes out of the agency pockets and doesn't cost you anything"

If you follow me at all, you know I almost never recommend a third party service. This one, I happen to believe in enough to break that rule of silence though

BTW, they ONLY do videos. No still images, no music, etc.

What does this have to do with the topic of Vimeo Stock?

People are talking about getting in to this new video sales platform. I am pointing out that video is much harder than photos, and that there is a viable alternative that gets you on multiple platforms with a single (and pretty simple) upload mechanism. The icing on the cake is that you also get paid MORE when going through them, than if you had the same sale directly from the agency (unless you are doing insanely large volumes of sales).

Thus, I believe it is very relevant to anyone wondering about how to get into the new Vimeo video sales platform.

Since Blackbox does not submit to Vimeo, what you're actually doing is spamming.

Not convinced yet by Blackbox.
Not that impressed with their content on Pond5.
I`m not sure I`d want to associate my work with others that I feel isn't as good.
It seems not a day goes by without another Youtube Vlogger falling over themselves to talk about them.
They may have have an advantage in search terms, on say Pond5, but I've not seen their name come up that often.

As for Vimeo Stock, I`d love to join them, fingers crossed.
But all I see at the moment are the same top contributors that contribute to everyone else, so I wonder how much is exclusive and how they can differentiate themselves from everyone else.

It is pure spamming and I don't see the point in blackbox. It's hard enough doing stock with what the agencies take without adding extra middlemen. Complete waste of time IMO.

Doesn't even come close to the definition of spamming, since it has been written exactly once in exactly one forum, and in response to a relevant query.

If you don't like BlackBox, that is fine. You are missing out by not understanding it though.  In this case, the "middleman" as you put it, results in your making more money per sale than if you were working directly with the end agency.

I don't pay for software to help upload photos, because they are all pure cost with little net benefit.  I was skeptical of BB for that exact reason. I happen to be a convert myself though. Costs nothing to join and check it out for yourself.  Again, your choice though.

And I would NEVER consider going with a single agency in an exclusive arrangement, as Vimeo wants.  That is simply a non-starter, be it Getty or Vimeo or any of the others that only accept exclusive content.

Regardless, my earlier comment was not spam in the slightest...
