I hope to get some useful advise or information.
I have uploaded about 800 pictures, and I have apply for selling illustaion by Istock.
Question 1
   Is all vector illustration could be found in gettyimages? or only the vectors in vetta?
Question 2
   How much dollar for a vector download? Is it different with pictures?
Question 3
    a IS exclusive  illustrator or  a Multi-agencies illustrator which can earn more?

Question 2

How long is a piece of string? Could be as low as 28c for a sub. With credit sales, what you get depends on how much the buyer paid for the credits. The lowest sale I've found for a credit was <53c, but I think as low as 42c has been noted here. Simple vectors may be sold for 2 credits, so say for example a credit cost 50c, 2 credits would be $1 and your share would be 15c.

Getty images can also go for various prices. My lowest has been 40c so far (for a rare bird species, linked to other thread), but there have been reports of sales sub 10c. That's for photos, I don't know about Vectors.

Of course, sales can be higher than that, e.g. with ELs, but they don't come often.

It's none of my business, but I'm surpised you didn't check this out before joining up.

I mean for once sale.... from 28C to what the best?

No, it's from <15c for what they judge to be a 'simple' vector, as noted above.
A Cash EL with all options ticked would be best.
You'll have to get an American to answer. I get prices in , and there is a currency hike which contributors don't share.

Do you know that there is a Vector forum on the iStock site?
http://www.istockphoto.com/forum_threads.php?forumid=65&page=1

I don't do stock vectors, but exclusive vector files are mirrored to Getty (if the connector works), but not indie vectors.
Of course you will see vectors from all different sources on Getty, which aren't in the Vetta collection.
