Istock is telling you alot of lies. To begin with istock is hugely profitably. It is the most profitable part of the Getty business by a long way. It has been a huge runaway success - it has made alot of money for Getty. So when Istock bosses tell you the current commission rate is unsustainable this is utter rubbish. A pack of lies. They could afford to raise your commission rates. However greedy bankers don't think like this.

What the bankers that own Getty want to do is make more profit form your hard work to make Getty more appealing for sale - fatten up for sale. So how do they do this? Take money from your pockets - cut royalties. To make it appear that profits are growing. When infact they are stagnating because of market saturation.

This is a PR disaster for istock basically because it is the crowd sourcing photographers that made istock the huge success it is today. And it is the photographers that could bring it down.

For Exclusives at IS thinking about alternatives I have some help for them which is found here below.
It is a submission portal called Isyndica (url supplied below)
Geez, exploiting the misery of some people to push your referral link down to their throat. Disgusting. 9 times the same message as comment.

It is NOT a submission portal but just a glorified FTP program, while Filezilla is free. The submissions still has to be done on every site, and you will have to register there first and take your exam. Isyndica is useless, unless you're very short on bandwidth. They are borderline dishonest too.

but you have in one place at Isyndica information about many many different stock sites and others as well. For me this has been one of the best investments I have made regarding microstock
You? Who are you? Another referral hunter from Elbonia?

the subscriptionplan runs from 49.99 79.99 and 149.99
Too much, spammer. Ploink.

Do you really need to spam your * referal code all over the board ?
