Picture agency Zoonar is launching new RF licence portal Zoonar Express

Hamburg based picture agency Zoonar launched the beta version of its new license portal Zoonar Express today. This new site makes purchases of royalty free photos faster and simpler. The new portal features a high performance modern responsive design.

Zoonar wants to reach new groups of buyers with the new site. The purchase process on Zoonar Express is simple and fast and only a minimum of user data is required on the site. For example, it won't be necessary to create a user account, you can pay with PayPal. The licensing agreements use easy to understand language, prices are identical to those on Zoonar. Photographers receive a fair 50% commission rate, which is well above the average for stock agencies.

There are currently 7 million RF photos, vectors and illustrations available on Zoonar Express. The agency has plans to gradually expand the number of available images.

I have a portfolio of 1200 pics on zoonar for about 14 months now and havent sold a single pic yet.
Not worth the effort.

Please check:

Do you have set Model and Property Release Information? (we are not sell Photos with an "unknown" status). You can do that at "Manage images" as a batch process
Do you have activate our Distribution Channels? You can do that at "Distributor Management" (we use APIS/Picturemaxx with DPA and DDP for the german Publishing Houses)

All Release Informations are set.
I activated 7 partners but ddp images is the only agency that reviewed my pics and accepted them. DPA picture alliance reviewed a few, accepted a few and denied several.
All the other agencies like picturemaxx, fotofinder, getty images, universal images group, imagebroker all never reviewed my pics and keep them on the waiting list for 14 months now.
I have pictures with 68 views but not a single sale. The same pics do well with other agencies like Adobe and Alamy.
My user name is TeleMakro - maybe you can find out whats wrong with my portfolio......

or tax form submission process (right now it is mission impossible). I've stopped uploading when taxes were introduced. I don't like double taxation - in Germany and in my country.

Dont`t worry there is nothing wrong with your Portfolio. Some Partners needs a lot of time because we have to add essential Keywords, Categories or german Translations. Some other Partners are deleted like UIG or Getty because different reasons (to small fees or no sales reports). We are currently using Picturemaxx with DPA and DDP. Other Partners just accepted special kind of Content and we have to pick the Photos manually... We are specialized to do all this work for our Partners and Photographers. With Zoonar.Express we want to try now to sell more directly in the future. But our prices are higher, we are a regional company and we are not a subscription agency. So you will never have the same sales like at the big 5...

This is true. I`ll  post it if we find a solution for it in the future...

I do not understand this post. This was a press release about the fact that an agency had founded a new (second) license portal to sell more photos itself in the future. It's no logic to say they haven't sold much so far, so they don't have to do anything to sell more in the future. The attempt in itself is worth it. It is always better than doing nothing or increasing your profit by reducing photo fees. It is clear that no miracles are to be expected. The market no longer produces miracles. It is shrinking ...

He is saying that Zoonar as a whole is not worth the effort. There are little to no sales on the main platform and it's easy to correlate that there would be equally little to no sales with the Express approach.  I have personally never uploaded to Zoonar just because they report so low on the earnings potential scale.  But that's just me.

I took the time and Looked at the work. which I seldom do Nowdays. Im sorry and don't mean to offend anyone But being Honest......I see a whole bunch Of Low interest/Done to death so /so Boring Uninteresting work from folks who  Just take Pictures, Not make Photographs. And Most of all "stock" Pictures. My friends Stock has a certain Look and feel. It doesn't have to be art BUT.....It is a art unto itself If done correctly.........................

It really is.

So why do they then sell on Adobe and Deposit (and Shutterstock formerly), were used on stamps, bookcovers and authority flyers? Dont seem to be that useless with other agencies....
