Shutterstock pays 3c - so you can either view that as almost as small or three times as much.

Are you getting any downloads from gimmestock.  What is there  minimum payout?

That royalty structure seems a little ridiculous, especially since I'll bet that nobody has over 50 downloads at this point...

they have an allright looking site, but I vote them as one of the first companies to go under :S

It is interesting how many sites there are and it seems that in a few years not all will survive.  They cant even say they have unique photos and in most cases, submitters have also submitted to every other site.  And for the same reason, there is no incentive for other microsites to buy them out to gain in size as they will have thousands of double ups.  The only way I see it working is every macro sight will own a microsite and all other micor sites will eventually die.

it would be interesting to know from a designers point of view why they would use any site other than say istockphoto and shutterstock (the two with the most images).

It will be interesting to see how many earnings I (and everyone else) loses when these go under.

I just submit to them as if i edit my EXIF I can submit to three sites Dreamtime, photostockmedia and gimme. The first is biggest earner as iStock are just so darn fussy and the 10/day limit.

Going back to gimmestock a quote from their rejection e-mail

Please, don't give up on us and keep on helping this site grow by
uploading more of your work. We appreciate your interest and know that you
can be a valued member of our team

A bit sad especially when my current acceptance rate is 75% with them and there are 67 photos of mine in the queue.

Not to mention its 20.30 in the UK so its 12.30pm in LA and 3.30pm in NYC and Gimmestock haven't approved any photos so far today according to their website, maybe their reviewer is sick.

Anyone had a acceptances or even sales from these guys. I have a load of files there for nearly a month waiting review they seem to be stuck at 39,000 images. I must admit they are the first site I have actually given up on, not uploading anymore.

Can Stock and PSM are beginning to try to my patience as well but at least they review the photos

Based on Fintastique's comments, Leaf's prediction may be correct.  Makes me happy that I didn't bother.

How strange I wait a month nothing then post a comment on this site regarding ridicously slow reviewing times at Gimmestock and then 150 images are suddenly reviewed within 24 hours.

According to a post in their forum, one contributor offered to be an inspector, so approvals resumed this week.

Still, I don't have much faith in the future of this site, the managers seem to busy elsewhere.

Regards,
Adelaide
