Just had two sales for 1c each and another for 3c, do these people really think that I believe this is the correct commission rate, so called partner sales, more like lets sharft the contributor sales.

Just written them a email asking them to stop doing this.

My account is at $95.68 and the sales have slowed to a snails pace, the reality is they are in trouble financially otherwise I would have had a payout last year.

For heaven's sake, according to your claimes every stock agency is run by criminals. Why are you even still in this business? Just leave already and get one of that mystery dream job where the people who own the company pay you more than they earn themselves.

Your comment is quite a silly, the reality is when microstock first started the contracts, ie, commission rates where fair, mostly 50/50, over the years these have been eroded by greed and the self serving interests of the wealthy, who have moved in on the sites, realising as they do in so many industries, that they can asset strip them.

istock, Shutterstock, Getty, etc are classic examples of this.

The reality is, creative people and in fact anyone with half a brain will vote with their feet, unlike you who likes to take it . . .

These days I don't need the money from these sites, but I'm pissed off that I have over 14 years worth of work that they think they can scam off me.

Obviously you like to be ripped off and you like it that way. LOL.

I know for some that seems like a broad generalization, but I wanted to include this:

The most important point to remember with Shutterstock is that Jon Oringer and his side kick Stan Pavlovsky are ripping you off.
Whatever you are making, they are stealing a vast amount more than you are getting in cash.
After suckering in the talent, many so called tech companies operate a slave labour system of remuneration, Deposite photos are no different, they lack innovation, imagination and any business sense, this is demonstrated by this latest wheeze, with no explanation of what the financial returns actually are.
Another Agency that has taken the corporate shareholder greed route, now owned by PA Media, better known as the Daily Mail, wholly owned by Viscount Rothermere, a notorious family of tax avoiders, they have never paid tax in the UK, his father was a supporter of Adolf Hitler, I write this so you know the type of people who are sharfting you.
Enveto manipulate their search engine algorithm to favour their exclusive contributors only.


I believe the EU is looking at what is termed 'Big Tech', at the moment, across the board with these companies the playing field is not level, from tax, contracts and competition, I would bet that the writing is on the wall and the Wild West is over.

Within the next five years a lot of these companies are going to have to abide by new laws, which will be fairer for the citizens and the workers.

Make no mistake the Microstock business will be part of this.

Short show...

Well I am fat and old (bald, kind of gimpy my right foot has had some bad times under trees and rocks falling on it) but no to the Netflix all day thing? Hey wait, what does that have to do with the issues?

He's gone, again, and I predict will try to come back with a new name and post the same old attacks. I didn't have to trawl, I just went and looked at recent posts and clipped some relevant examples. I didn't sink to personal attacks and name calling I just used his own words.  ;D

Vectorstock were always crooks. They claimed to have tiered pricing but no one could ever get images priced more than 1 credit. They didn't care if it hurt contributors, they wanted volume, whatever the cost.

Yes I also remeber when they were promising contributors they would move specific vectors up to higher tiers then just not bothering to do it.
