Im not on 500px, but is this the same like with EyeEm?

How long you wait until your images appear on Getty?

If i upload to 500px is this exclusive?

So they're on Getty for 50 - 375 and the cut was 0.65! What license?

Doesnt specify the type of license, dont know if any subscription or so, but I just know that some months ago I sold photos on 500px for $14, after for $1,5 and now $0,65.

I have noticed that Getty is cutting royalties, same thing is happening to me in Eyeem via Getty, the price per photo is falling down

Disappointing to hear the 500px stuff is being sold for so little. I thought it was a special deal with Getty for decent prices but that would be good news for contributors and that's not allowed!

Getty's Premium Access deal promises access to all assets, so no special deals.
OTOH, Getty break a promise, like that couldn't happen!

Macrostock often has sales that are much lower than in microstock. You get sales for 2 cents, for 10 cents etc...then you get a few higher ones for 10 dollars or 60 dollars, but if I look at my 2200 files on various macro places, in terms of volume, the majority is low sales.

The license fee is completly unpredictable.

But your files are in the shop window for 600 dollars and it makes people happy and dream about high license royalties...

How old are these sales?
I also received a bunch of older distributor sales, made prior to the Getty announcement.
I expect Getty sales to be marked as "500px licensing".

The $0,65 sale is from April, but has come today and is marked as "Our distributor"

Yeah, mine are from April as well. These are not from Getty.

If your photos are good enough to be accepted by Getty when submitted by Chinese 500px then your photos are good enough to be accepted by Getty when submitted directly by you. Why split your earnings with 500px?

It doesn't often work that way. It's difficult to get in as a Getty 'house' photographer these days: they tell most applicants to go to iStock.
No reason not to try, just manage your expectations.

I already mentioned above, most of my 500px photos are already with iStock.

From what I see, the RPD I got from 500px after the Getty deal (so far) is far better than what I regularly get from iStock for the same stuff.

The real question is: will the revenue be better than what I already got straight from 500px? Possibly, since I expect more exposure and more volume through Getty. Time will tell.

One more thing: working straight with Getty requires exclusivity. That's not the case with 500px

Because when you try to submit directly to Getty you are told that they only accept exclusive images.  Sell on another agency, and they refuse your image.

Apparently with 500px, they have decided to wink at that requirement, since not many (if any) were exclusive there.

its another pay cut, you'll get 50% of whatever getty pays 500px. if they dont increase the price, you are looking at a 50% pay cut, maybe even more.

If I'll continue to be paid like they just did, who cares? It's dozens of times better than what I get from IS for the same stuff, maybe even thousands of times more that those shameful 2cents/dl. Remember those?

What I got is similar with what I get from Alamy. Are you saying Alamy is no good?

So what's the plan, submit the images going to microstock sites to 500px as well and hope they sell on getty? It seems like a good idea now that contributing to IS is only for the foolhardy

That's a total non-sequitur, as the lowest prices come via Getty Connect and Getty Premium Access, and you'd only get a portion of the sales price via 500px. Of course, you might win the lottery and get a portion of a higher sales price.

So that makes 500px almost not worth the effort as most of their sales will be driven through getty?

OP "As a result of this change, we are closing 500px Marketplace on June 30, 2018. If youre a contributing photographer who has not opted out of distribution, your images may be selected for inclusion on Getty Images, as well as on our long-term distribution partner, Visual China Group (VCG), which acquired 500px back in February and markets photos in China."

Is it just me or are they only choosing to 'licence' landscapes these days?
