I got an invitation to join PIXTA. Never heard of them, it's hard to find more info. But a lot of photo contributors are not too happy with them. And tax issues.

Do any of you contribute there?

Try searching here for Pixta. (That wasn't meant to be snide. I did the search, but I can't get the URI of the search result to work.)

9 monts with around 350 files with 0 sales.
I deleted my account.

Regular sales, not bad, but from $100 sales receive approximately $70 after reductions and exchange of JPY to USD
Recently cut commission from 50% to more than 22% according the ranking sistem: http://www.pixtastock.com/blog/contributor-rank/
and one more new typical microstock step introducing subscriptions...

Overall they sell

Pixta earns me 4% of what Shutterstock does. We sent them content by mail so didn't have to upload, but I do wish sales where better. Recent conversion rate from yen is not helping either.

Video sales are rare.  Horrible curation too.

The tax forms to fill out for PIXTA are a nightmare... it's almost worth it to leave the 20% withholding in tact, unless you are earning thousands each year here.  https://www.pixtastock.com/faq_contributor#Will_my_earned_credits_be_subject_to_withholding_tax

I never had to jump through that many hoops to get my payment with 0% withholding for other agencies and other countries... so it makes no sense to me.  USA has a tax treaty with Japan.
