I'm not sure I understand this. Thought video was supposed to pay not only a higher percentage, but also that video clips paid higher in general as well.

so far in 15 sold clips my average royalty per sale is 16.7 cents. Of those 15 clips, 10 of them have sold for .005 cents per clip.


Less then half a cent for a video clip? WHAT?!?!?!

Ditto to that one. Why would you upload videos to Istock?

I'm not sure I understand this. Why do people send footage to Istock if those clips are sold for cents when you can sell those at the price point you think is fair at other sites. It is just beyond me.......

Why on earth anyone with some sort of mind sanity should even remotely consider uploading footage to istink?

Because I didn't think they would sell video far below what the photo sales are making. I could see a couple here and there, but this so far is the average for me and I'm not sure if this is normal or just my luck.

I know with the images this happens and I get afew random sub single cent sales. For the most part though the sales are enough to make it worthwhile that I don't fret about the low ball figures.

overall Istock is still my second top earner right behind shutterstock. so I don't want to discount them all together. Just hoping this might be a weird moment due to a small portfolio

My last month with them I had istock sell 6 clips and I ended up with around 1.30. That was it for me I removed my portfolio and have been very happy I did. There comes a point where the blatant disregard for contributors is just too much to support.

I've had the same experience with Getty recently (I left istock years ago) so i will no longer be giving them video
