So 60Fps - 4k video for 0.63 cents - it's just bizarre. From January I will start to upload to other stock agencies.
Good decision.
Video exclusivity at iS hasn't made any sense for years, if it ever did.
So it's worse for non-exclusive video?

I would imagine so (I don't do video).
Still, you may choose to focus not on individual sales, but average rpd or total $$ earned. I'm not sure that iS video fares well on any of these stats, but that's just from what I'm reading.

Indeed. For pictures it has some crazy 0.01-0.1 sells but the overall rpd and total is good. But for video it seems like it's not worth it. Plus it only accepts mov while the rest of the sites use mp4

So that's the thing? Anyone sold video in istock for more than 0.63?

Certainly - I've sold one for as much as $108.17 (presumably an extended license) but I've also sold them for a lot less, indeed, for as little as $0.11.

My overall RPD for video on iStock is $4.51, since ESP;  not very impressive!  I am non-exclusive for video though, and rarely upload any to iStock nowadays unless they're ones that never sold anywhere else as it simply doesn't seem worth it.

You do get better rates if you become Exclusive, but as they don't accept editorial video that isn't an option as far as I'm concerned.

hhahahaha, the esp site statistics say $105, but the email "Remitance" says $96, which is just under the payout threshold. What a * **.

EDIT: oh, they paid anyway. At least some good news.

H*ck, if often seems like no stats on that site agrees with any other stat.
I don't think I've ever looked at that email 'remittance' before, but I just did, and it's 10c (sic, ten cents) over the site statistics (and the latter is what went into PayPal).
What on earth goes on there? There have been various explantions, but ...  ::)

Just to give my two cents
I ve upped two months ago around 40 videos to test if the low low royalties is a reality.

During two months I saw 5 videos downloaded. Wow! Really quick to sold!
Now I have my royalties for three videos: 0.30, 0.92, 0.36....
WOW really the worst sells I do with clips.

Of course no more upload, now I'll see in next month's the value of others downloads
