iStock just sent me an email saying that they are refunding two buyers purchases that was made on Oct 18th 2015...a whole 190 days after the purchase...what? So let me get this straight, they take ~85% of the revenue AND can refund a purchase of over 6 months after it happened?  Folks we need to revolt and refuse to do business with them...better yet we need to buy up tons of media, use heck out of it and then 6 months later ask for a refund...Join me with being done with istock forever and spreading the word about their awful practices far and wide.  Bye Bye istock, your greed and shady practices finally broke the camel's back.

Only united and strong contributors can move things in right directions! We need NEW strong community.

Yes united contributors are the solution. We need a network or foundation to bundle our forces.

I have been done with them forever for the last 2 or 3 years.  :)

I got out over a year ago.  Nothing about IS was making sense anymore.

There used to be a popular agency called istock in earlier years. Are you still referring to the same one?
I thought most contributors shuttered those widows and left that dust town long ago?

I pulled out of iStock in 2011 and never looked back. Never had any reason to regret that move.
