just wanted to ask you how are sales there and if its worth it to upload some of my files. i have 70k on top tier agencies and wanted to upload 3-4k to eyeem. the thing that stops me from uploading is the lack of any kind of protection like a watermark or something..and that is why i wondered if the paycheck worths the risk.

I am thinking about it to :). But I dont like that all of my uploaded files to EyeEm are automatically distributed to other partners. Example to Adobe Stock or Getty. I have my files there to. I dont want to double my files on this site. I think it would be a bad thing. On EyeEm isnt OPT OUT Partners distribution button.

I have sales every month, most sales are for 3 dollars, sometimes more.

Eyeem doesnt have a watermark, so I dont feel comfortable uploading people stock or expensive stock.

But I like to take snapshots of the world around me, experiment with ,mobile stock filters and I send these to eyeem.

It s more like a hobby. Very relaxing.

Eyeem is first of all a photo community like flickr, sales come from distribution and you get 50% of what eyeem gets. We dont know what percentage eyeem has, so if they get 20% from getty, you will get 10. If they get 10, you get 5. But I have never received less than 3 dollars.

Sometimes they also sell direct, but I only get that two times a year or so.

In my experience, normal stock doesnt really sell. But the overfiltered stuff does.

Mobile stock is a different genre, youll have to experiment to see if it works for you.

They have missions you can join and a blog where they show the style they like.

thank you so much, the watermark is something that just keeps me from uploading yet

Well, it looks like they just lowered the minimum download to 2 dollars. :(

It was always 5 dollars, until they lowered it to 3 in April, now they lowered it again.

However they did add Adobe as a new distribution partner.

I also had one download for 58 dollars and several for 6, so I really cant complain.

But I have nearly double the downloads than in January, but less money.

However, I am still happy, because eyeem is really fun.

Eyeem is a waste of time with his release system... fill again in web fields all model /property release information ethnicity... age... and if you forget related images of the same person before submit...yo will must do it again.

 I closed my account. A file remain in Getty Eyem.

the model release system is absolutely horrible.

they also just removed the ability to  upload the paper release. Now you have to send an email to every single model, every time you upload.

if you have 30 people in the image, everyone has to agree again and again and again.

It is crazy.

I just learned about Eyeem and i'm very interested.    My question is about getting a quantity of photo's up.  Have you submitted many?   since most of my iphone photo's are no longer on my iphone, what's the best way to get them from my pc hard drive to eyeem? Do i have to reload them back to my iphone, then upload?   is there a way to upload from the pc?    and then, can i use photos that were taken by my dslr?   sorry if these are simple questions, but they're not clear from what i've read so far about eyeem.   thanks
