Title: Who has had sales at MostPhotos?
Post by: mwp1969 on February 13, 2008, 17:10
I am curious ...

Who has had any sales at Mostphotos now that they've been out there and active for a few months? I think I remember reading somewhere that a sale there is the equivalent of an EL sale on many of the traditional "micro" sites ...

Started uploading Jan 10. Had a sale within two days, but nothing since then. 12.50 euros is nice.  Just about equal to some micro EL sales.

6 sales, 12.5 euros commission, 75 euro in total = approx. 110 USD

I had one at 12.5 Euro of a shot 2-3 days after it was uploaded. Sold immediately at DT and SS too.

Very funny, since iStock rejected it this morning as 'non commercial'. Well, I prefer 20$ over 1$ anyways ;-)

In the mean time I made another sale. 25Euro on my account now, that's 38$. I'm uploading since January. And they hooked Laurin Rinder! (he is featured photographer now). If Rinder is there, that spells a lot.

Post by: anonymous on March 05, 2008, 22:32
I've only got aprox 125 images, no DL's, lots of "views", but once the image falls off the radar, the views decrease dramatically (due to the inane "rating" system). Will give them another month and will delete portfolio after that. The rating thing will potentially cost them their existence.

Flemish - congrats on your sales.
Title: Re: Who has had sales at MostPhotos?
Post by: CCK on March 05, 2008, 23:31
No sales, that is zero Euros, converted to $ is easy, $0.00. (Talking about their crazy rating system and zeros, I have a photo that kicked of with a zero rating right after upload while at zero views and zero comments. You can't get crazier than that! No hope of sales on that one.)

As LO found out, views doesn't mean sales. You have the Flickrish "market" and the Buyers market and those apparently aren't the same. I hardly comment or rate, and the 2 images sold were typical cold "boring" plastic stock like a business couple on a computer and a model concept shot, both isolated. One got a rating of 6, the other one had no rating at all.

I guess the keywords still do their job for buyers. There are some stunning highly rated landscapes etc... on MP, but what sells, like everywhere are the neutral usable things, like the stick-it photo of Leaf. I don't think a buyer is going the be impressed by the community rating if he finds the right image down the list.

Had my first sale late last week. Yes, the Euros are nice.

Also, 2 or 3 times I uploaded a photo that got a pretty quick response with ratings and for a day or two those photos seemed to sell well on other sites. I think maybe people see photos on mostphotos with high ratings and then look for it cheaper on other sites.

Title: Re: Who has had sales at MostPhotos?
Post by: Phil on March 21, 2008, 07:28
well I started uploading. This rating thing is interesting luckily I haven't been hit with anyone giving me anything bad yet, and the ones I've given, well I was brought up with if you can say anything nice dont say anything at all so have been a little reserved as such. 

but I notice what is being rated highly is more the artistic (maybe people are like me and less likely to say gee that's a stunning tomato on white background etc and open it and rate it) and so this is stuff that seems to be higher in search. 

so for those who have sales, is your 'stockier' stuff that is selling or is it more artistic stuff?

No luck there. Had one of my digital art pieces (if you can call them that) at the top position (for the last month) for a few weeks but nothing happened, no sales whatsoever. It has a MP rating of 866.4 points. But it's no stock material whatsoever and I'm after all content with the support outcome it yielded. Love the site design, but the sales, well, can't say I'm happy about them (especially cause I assumed that that one lonely photo at position 1 would "call in" customers to my other more stocky material);)

p.s.: But I'll continue uploading. No reason to stop. And I'm sure those that sell stuff deserve it more than I do. I upload only because it's supereasy to do so. FTP/process/confirm. Very smooth.

Had a couple during my 2 months there: no complaints, as the site is still in the process of taking off, modifications, figuring out its bearings in the marketplace. I like the site, and its unconventional approach (which may be either good or bad - time will tell).

Post by: Lukasphoto on May 17, 2008, 07:41
Here's what MP's Arian had to say in the MP forum:

@Mostphotos are for the moment putting all its efforts on advertising in the Scandinavian market.

To be honest the crew are working like crazy to increase the revenues, and the only obstacle that we face from buyers is that they need to see more photos on the site. Else they love the site in every aspects.
So at the same time that we are working with sales, we are putting efforts to get more photos to the site.
Sales and and the number of photos goes hand in hand. Mostphotos have as of today approx 220 000 photos online and the goal is to have several millions. We are working really really hard to increase the sale figures, trust me.

What the site needs from the contributes is for them to do their part, uploading more photos.
Title: Re: Who has had sales at MostPhotos?
Post by: sharpshot on May 17, 2008, 07:50
And we are far more likely to upload if there are sales :)  All the successful sites have manged to keep enough sales going to make it worth contributing.
Title: Re: Who has had sales at MostPhotos?
Post by: 4seasons on May 17, 2008, 09:15
Nothing new and nothing original that buyers want to see more photos. But it's a circle: sales-uploads-sales-uploads. More sales, more uploads etc... I personally have no time to run across the web and upload my portfolio to every new agency just to check are there sales or not. Scandinavia is a small market. They must go wide to USA, Canada etc.
And btw, a big part of these 220k photos are crap.

Another thing- kindergarten with these rating system, where some friends rate each other cat's photos. It has nothing with stock business and I think that serious authors will not upload on such "family snapshots album".

I uploaded a few hundreds photos. A few days ago some idiot with this "portfolio" of 20 snapshots and crap rated my istock bestsellers 1.
At this point Mostphotos is a good place for various low self esteemed and inferiority complexed people who know nothing about stock photos but can rate other's bestsellers 1.
If this was the prime purpose of creating of MP, than it's all right.

1 sale in 3 months for portfolio of ~250 picture, last sale in March for portfolio of ~700 pictures - with so low sales it is not worth my time uploading I suppose.

I don't think it will be worth the time unless there will be at least a few stable sales per month.

I don't think he rated by mistake. Maybe envy? Maybe anger? Maybe just he's spending time for fun? I don't know. Anyway. One more sandy box for kids...

Authors of MP wanted to create a "community spirit" for purpose to keep photogs and visitors on website. They lumped together social and commercial websites. I think it (ratings..) works for novices only. Serious authors have no time to play. If needed, there are a lot of serious forums even some kind of games on TOP5 agencies' forums.

Let it be. One thing only, if ratings have influence on images' appearing order when searched, than it's bad...

"...Mostphotos has no future in microstock..."

With all due respect - but I have to disagree. We all know that it is very difficult now for any new site to succeed, but they do most things right, and after some kinks are straightened out, I think that they have a reasonable chance of being successful. Maybe not on SS or IStock scale - but StockXpert or 123RF for sure.

Hmmm. I had the impression that they sell the images for EURO and not sharing them with other members.
Title: Re: Who has had sales at MostPhotos?
Post by: araminta on June 06, 2008, 13:29
AFAIK, before becoming a microstock agency, Mostphoto was actually some sort of photo sharing site: the result is that many contributors became stock photographers just because they where just here before. It's amazing to see how many contributors never heard about model releases or copyright... at least it was the case a few months ago.

I may be wrong and it is not that important: Mostphotos is indeed an interesting site. The problem is that many (most?) contributors just have no sale at all here.

Yesterday I had my first sale in months: a 12€ commission is nice indeed, but I have had more sales at LO before and you know what happens.

At least the Alexa statistics (http://www.alexa.com/data/details/traffic_details/mostphotos.com) is showing an improvement in traffic. I also receive one Euro for a referral sale the other day.

ditto...I like Arian's up-front accessibility and the site's layout. Still HATE the goofy rating system allowing snipers to shoot you down in the search results....but I'll give them a few more months to to if they can sort out whether to be a stock site or a vanity site.

Unfortunately, I have uploaded approximately 300 images over the last three months (all of which sell on other sites)......and have zero sales to date.

I'm going to give them the benefit of the doubt, but if nothing sells by the end of summer, I'm likely to stop uploading to the site.

I went a couple of months with no sales but had another 1 last month.  I am only sticking with them because I can take the money straight out.  Hopefully they will start selling smaller sizes for lower prices and that will increase the volume of sales.

Yes! I agree 100%, they are talking about selling "websize" photos for 3€ each. I hope they start with that soon.

I really like the way they are evolving, they are also going to start a more active marketing soon.

I think its all good news! ;)

I got my 2nd sale there in June  ;)

It resulted in a net of over $17.00 after conversion from being paid in Eurosand. I also noticed that I have Euros from referral sales coming in at 1 Euro per referral sale. With the exchange rate hovering in the $1.50-$1.57 Range that's a very nice referral commission.

I hope the sales continue  ;D

Scandinavia is a small market. They must go wide to USA, Canada etc.

well, i haven't tried MostPhotos but i have been with ScanStock which is also from Scandinavia.
It probably is true that being a small market there is fewer buyers.
My images with ScanStock has barely any views. 4 at the most after 3 months. The only big surprise is when I was about to delete my images,
I found that I had one sale.
That is impressive especially for my portfolio which has hardly any viewers.

Maybe it is just a case of marketing. So let's hope for the best
for both sites based in Scandinavia.

A little warning to all photographers joining MostPhotos!
Just a couple of days ago I made the decision of cancelling my account as a contributor to MP, after been there a month or so and having over 80 photos, half of them top rated, I started to realized that the site is a joke, half of the contributors there have very little idea of what digital photography is, don't take me wrong, they have a group of great and very talented photographers, but for the most of them, all they upload are images that no other site would even looked at, they look very pretty as a thumbnail, but ones you get closer, the amount of noise,out of focus, and artifact is incredible...and this are the same people judging and rating everyone else's work...(like a blind man giving an oppinion on your image)...I'm not trying to discourage anyone to upload there, just that the 25 euros bait is not worth the trouble...Once a buyer gets close enough to some of the pictures there, I can guaranteed you, he/she will never be coming back, or search any further for great quality work  on that site...Oh! and lets not leave out the attitudes and rudeness of some of the less talented members...but hey, guys and girl, you be your own judge on MostPhotos.com...you've been worn.

Best regards all...and keep on shooting.

If you march in there thinking it´s just like the other sites around, your wrong :-\ The whole point with this site is to be different. Accepting all images is an attempt to prove that every image can be sold. And so far it´s petty much true, although a bit slow.

You´r right about bad quality issues here and there. Do u have a suggestion how to change that without reviewers?

There about to change the whole pointsystem. Everyones agreeing with you on that one.   All problems can be solved,
there´s no need to sneak out and warn people.

plus it´s free storage, and great people with a sence of humor.  When the ratings gone and advertising kicks in, it´ll be a great :)

Magnum, I don't sneak around to give my opinion, since we all have one, maybe different than the other guy, but my opinion never the less, and is based on personal experiences, as I mention on this thread, I'm not trying to discourage anyone from uploading to MP, just letting my fellow photographers know, that in my opinion, uploading there is a complete waste of time...in my case I would not place my work there and wait for some changes to fall down from the sky...and Magnum it is my privilage to speak what is on my mind.

And I respect your opinion on the matter...also, after being and art director and a photographer for over 20 years, and a contributor to many sites for a very long time, 80 pictures are enough to give you the feel of the site itself...and the fact that I may or may not have sold anything there, is irrelevant to the topic at hand...I'm very glad you're happy there, Cheers.

As I remebered you had like me not very stock oriented images. Lots of nature and travelshots.   That´s not bigselling stuff no matter how many years you´ve been in this game.  Mmorell right?  How much do you sell/month at Istock?
Title: Re: Who has had sales at MostPhotos?
Post by: [email protected] on August 09, 2008, 12:37
You're correct on the part that some of the nature and travel pictures are not the best sellers on this market, and if I was to rely on what I make in iStock, is not enough to get inspired about...but you know what Magnum, between all the sites I contribute too and "PHOTOSHELTER" I make a living with my work, and at least on those sites I'm confident that the people rating my work, are professionals with strong criterias to follow, and not like it was in most cases on MP.
By the way you seem to know me and my work, I wish I could say the same, but obviously you're a spoke person for the site, and as I told you before, "I'm glad you like it there" Cheers!

Ps Keep in mind that, what I uploaded on MP does not reflect what I upload on other sites.

Title: Re: Who has had sales at MostPhotos?
Post by: null on October 02, 2008, 09:07
After an absence from Stock and this forum, I had a look at my MP sales.
I had one in February, one in March (days after uploading), and odd one in May, then nothing any more.
My MP index is still under 50 (newbie).

My conclusion about the philosophy of the site is this:

- The MP index is utter crap. I got my sales when the site started and when almost everybody had a low MP index, so buyers could choose on based on quality rather than based on some Flickerish popularity rating by submitters.
- Sales obviously don't count for the MP index. My highest rated pictures contain none of my sales, except one near the bottom of the list.
- I noticed some contributors have an MP index in the thousands, so my guess is they are the kind of rating/commenting whores that populate Flickr and Multiply. Some comments I got was "write your comment here...". Yesyes.
- Since I preferred to do photography and not some chatbox-like game, my sales obviously halted.
- Most probably there are rating clubs and 'friends' clusters.
- As predicted, the way the MP index influences sales clearly is counterproductive and no substitute at all for real reviewers, at the contrary.

In a country where the daily wage is about 4$, I consider hiring a job student an hour per day to randomly comment ('great shot','perfect dof','unique viewpoint', etc..), randomly rate between 7 and 10, and log in and log a few times to boost my MP index. If that's what MP wants, it can get it. To survive in Rome, do like the Romans.

On the other hand, this conclusion/strategy might be invalid if everybody has a breakdown in sales since June... which doesn't predict much good for the future of the site.

Experience? very few Images and a Month? Please My friend gain some real experience and then post. MP is trying the best they can do do the best job they can with or without your limited help. Put up 2/3000 images then talk about what you've done.I've been at this a lot longer than you .......I must say without a doubt. Selling anything to anyone is about what your selling.

No sales yet, but something got cocked up during my second upload.  For some reason several images show up 2 or 3 times.  I've got loads more to upload, but until I figure out how the multiple images bit happened, and how I can fix it, I'm holding off.

I guess I'm one of the idiots who figure if you don't upload, you won't sell.  Sorta like lottery tickets - if you don't buy one, you will never win.  heh!

That wasn't the issue. The issue was that the crap MP factor steeres the search engine, not sales. Back last May (I can't check exactly when since the site is programmed way too heavily and it takes ages to come up here in the Philippines) I had 3 sales in a row, right after or a week after uploading. Reason? We all had around the same MP index then. I know you are connected to the site in some way, but I'm sorry, the concept doesn't work, unless you are prepared do your daily homework of 'write your comment here' tricks. I want to be judged by professional reviewers, not by a social network. And that is so ;-)

The commission is 12.5 euros a sale and they are a relatively new site.  It is a bit like having an EL on some of the other sites.  I have made more there than most of the newer sites and they are only selling one size at the moment.  Hopefully when they bring in other sizes there will be more sales.  Uploading there is easy and I do it in the background while I am doing other work, so it takes very little time.

Unlike most new sites, they are trying something completely different.  Some buyers might like the fact that there are no reviews and they can decide if the image is good enough for what they want.  Their collection is going to be different to the other sites that all have the same images from non-exclusive contributors.

Agree 100%. I cooled down a bit about their system. You managed to get a score of almost 1000, so you must be pretty active there. Love your Cornwall landscapes! (look at my comments).
I keep uploading all I have, since it's just another socket in Filezilla, and three clicks on the site from FTP to publish. Not even MRF attach. For now I treat it as fun and as a log of what I uploaded in general.
There are some fantastic photographers there, and the quality is surprisingly high in general.

I totally agree about the average sale price, but the average sale price of 0 sales is still $0.  As you can see from the Compete.com site, MP gets very few visitors and it appears their traffic is falling to absurdly low levels.

(http://grapher.compete.com/mostphotos.com_uv.png)

If it wasn't for the ridiculous comment system, I would have kept my portfolio there to "wait and see."  Any search engine that rewards contributors for logging in and out of the system is so out of whack, it isn't even worth considering.

so similar to the stats...

I had hoped they would promote themselves as somewhere for more artistic etc images, but I think I knew when the comment came about offering free blog sizes that it was going to be just another one not putting / having the money to invest in promotion (would love here that I was wrong as I quite liked the site).

The problem with traffic stats is they don't show the number of buyers, how much their buying budget is and how much they are spending on the site.  Those stats would interest me :)

I have only had one sale there. And that was over a year ago.

Post by: hali on January 15, 2009, 10:31
I totally agree about the average sale price, but the average sale price of 0 sales is still $0.  As you can see from the Compete.com site, MP gets very few visitors and it appears their traffic is falling to absurdly low levels.

([url]http://grapher.compete.com/mostphotos.com_uv.png[/url])

If it wasn't for the ridiculous comment system, I would have kept my portfolio there to "wait and see."  Any search engine that rewards contributors for logging in and out of the system is so out of whack, it isn't even worth considering.


hey DanP68, long time no see. But what a good point for a re-entry!
Yes, I agree. MostPhotos do have some good photographers, but the reward system for the one who loiters around the site is the most ridiculous thing ever.
I think the idea is to get clicks rather than sales for the contributors.
Get rid of that comment system and logging in reward. It's laughable.

I uploaded about 50 images months ago, then gave up. I just looked and saw that I've had a sale last month. I might start uploading again; even occasional sales at 12.5 Euros are worthwhile.

It's weird how people have success at one agency but not another.  For instance you often write that you do well with Featurepics.  I've made $9 there total over a year's time.  That's what I make on a good day at Shutterstock.

A little warning to all photographers joining MostPhotos!
Just a couple of days ago I made the decision of cancelling my account as a contributor to MP, after been there a month or so and having over 80 photos, half of them top rated, I started to realized that the site is a joke, half of the contributors there have very little idea of what digital photography is, don't take me wrong, they have a group of great and very talented photographers, but for the most of them, all they upload are images that no other site would even looked at, they look very pretty as a thumbnail, but ones you get closer, the amount of noise,out of focus, and artifact is incredible...and this are the same people judging and rating everyone else's work...(like a blind man giving an oppinion on your image)...I'm not trying to discourage anyone to upload there, just that the 25 euros bait is not worth the trouble...Once a buyer gets close enough to some of the pictures there, I can guaranteed you, he/she will never be coming back, or search any further for great quality work  on that site...Oh! and lets not leave out the attitudes and rudeness of some of the less talented members...but hey, guys and girl, you be your own judge on MostPhotos.com...you've been worn.

Best regards all...and keep on shooting.

LOL.  Welcome back to MP. What changed your mind?
Title: Re: Who has had sales at MostPhotos?
Post by: null on April 08, 2009, 20:53
LOL.  Welcome back to MP. What changed your mind?
- It's a great site as backup for all your shots.
- It's nice to browse around in the image set of great photographers, as those aren't filtered by the LCV filter of microstock. In general, there are great photos on MP, though not all is stockworthy.

I'm not a big fan of the changes done recently with MostPhotos 3.0 but I have to say sales have really picked up.
I'm having at least 1 sale a day this past week.
Before I was having about 2 sales a month so for me there is something definitely changing over there!

Since it's been quiet over the holidays I've clicked their "What's Selling" tab a few times to see what pops up. The images change every day which I thought was great, sales are happening. Then I noticed a few images appearing every other day - great again because this must mean multiple sales of those images....but no, only one sale. So why do these images keep appearing in "What's Selling" when they've only sold once.

And reading back through this thread I have to wonder; what is selling?

Try to refresh - you do not need to wait next day. Looks like they just randomly select from pics with at least 1 sale - perhaps fresh sales are not enough for  page...

Still no sales here since joining in September 09 - but 4 sales within a week of uploading my first files to IS. There it is.

Also, I carried out a rough study based on a few images from other stockers that have sold 300+ in two years on IS - the exact same images have only sold once or twice on MP in the same period.

Nice payout if you can get it - but I have no idea how.

Good Luck.

Had a sale netting 12.5 Euros in 2010 back in February. Portfolio now up to 1659 images. Easy upload. Large commissions are nice when they do come. No harm for me to stay there since I plan to remain independent for quite some time. I am now on 17 sites and would rank MP in the top 7 or 8 performers for myself ...

OTOH I will continue to upload there - free remote backup is not easy to get!

I know, thread from the dead, back in June, but it fit, so why re-invent the whole thing?

I've been uploading some rejects from other sites. Not because of quality but content issues. I have the new shots as old as 1897 right now. Out of any copyright in the world, including anything that would require a model release.

Now that someone mentioned backup I saw that on my account and wondered what the deal was. I haven't used it. So if someone who is using it could explain. Does it download the images or everything, including tags that were added later?

Something about people celebrating one sale in a year, is scary for me. Sure I'd like to sell some of these leftovers and I think someone might be able to use them, but if the word Buyers is a scarce item, I guess I should just consider the backup as a feature and have some fun uploading my shots that other agencies won't host? One sale large would beat some other places? :D

Which is good for you, but I'd have to upload everything, before I could have the backup.  :o  :)

Let me add, I haven't reached 20 pictures on MP yet. It's just been an "art" outlet. Maybe if I had 100 photos I could join the club for people who had a sale, once in the last year. As it is, I find it amusing and use the site for the out of the ordinary shots, unlike the "stock" stock sites.

Next I'm wondering who the referrals are that I have on my account stats and if it means anything, or if I get a pat on the back for being nice and suggesting MP to people. ;)

Honest I could start my own dead agency. Some days I think it would be an interesting project, others I think about the waste of time, because of all the "free" photo sites, good established agencies and what good would a niche site be, when no one knows it exists? So that all boils down to, how much time and how much entertainment would I be interested in?

I'm glad someone resurrected this thread - I had forgotten about this site and so went to check - I had a sale of a high res image for 12.50 Euros. A Christmas present!

I vote for this thread to be buried forever

Deeeeeeeeeep, please........

I'm beginning to see the light and agree with you. Not the question about has anyone actually had a sale, (HA HA, hardly anyone has two on the whole MP site) but the empty Mostphotos promises for three years, no sales, no marketing, playground for votes and points for messages?

OK it's a good place for free backup. Make sure you copy everything before they disappear with the site when they go under. :(

It was some in 2009, only one in 2010. Hardly any in total.

Hmm... I had one sale in 2008. Suddenly I have three sales already this year (2011). Are things starting to pick up at Mostphotos or am I just lucky?

yeah, I used to get a sale often enough to keep me interested, but nothing in a long time except one of their pathetic sub sales. If I got a dollar for every 'like' I'd make some money. A waste of time

Looks like their buyer has returned :)  Sold a few recently, one PPD, a few subs and one of my referrals has sold something.  I still really like the site, there's a lot of junk but also a lot of great photos that aren't on the micros.

Also got my first sale there after a year and a few months of selling nothing. They need to clean their image database, there are a lot of cr*ppy snapshots.

Yay - 2 sales in May. Boo - earned 2 euros. At this rate I'll pay back the time I invested in uploading sometime in April 2017

Rubbish.

Interestingly I had three sales this month, after more than a year of not selling anything. Fortunately, one of the sale was 12.5 eur, so I was able to request my first MP payout (which was approved within the next business day).

only there for a month and no sales but I do like that fact they have there my pictures, if something happens to my drives files will be there free to download :) and even more cool is that file doesn´t lose IPTC

I don't understand the question? Lose what after the purchase? IPTC? That's your ID and personal signature on the image.

The fact that anyone has any sales at Mostphotos is a surprise. Every few months the topic comes back and the theory that someone can build a site and offer good commission and have a nice interface and make sales is amusing, when that's just what MP did? We should have sales and images just flying out the door. LOL

Yes I still have some things there and I'd love to have one sale to prove that the site really has someone besides sellers.
