Here is a new microstock website where you can buy and submit Illustrator vector cliparts :
newbielink:http://www.clipart-box.com [nonactive]

There is an intersting contributor's compensation ( 25% to 50% on sales ).

- Weird site dimensions. On my 1920x1200 resolution it takes up the upper 2/3 of my screen.

- Lots of spelling and grammatical errors.

- The prices are too low. $0,75 (25% of $3) for an elaborate vector, standard license and $7,50 (50% of $15) for an extended license.

Weird times - 25% is called interesting compensation.

Wow that's appalling. Even worse than vector stock!!!

You mean, that it is better on other website ?
15% on Istock, 25% on Shutter...
Is there any Microstock that propose you to earn 50% on a sale for a non exclusive clipart ?

well, explain me.

Yes. ClipartOf pays 50%

So does Stockfresh and 123RF (at least for the next 10 months).

AllYouCanStock pays 75%.


Shutterstock pays 25% - how do you know ?

ETA: My percentage for single image purchases is 30% and I suspect approximately the same royalty applies to sub sales.

Graphic leftovers pays 52%. And the new guy AllYouCanStock pays 75%. Irockstock pays 40% and Featurepics pays 50%. Except GL most of them don't have the sales yet but if you want me to upload to a starter site you need to do a whole lot better than 25%. Also- until you can promise me at least 15 sales a day you really can't compare yourself to SS.

What happened to that clipart site (Super Pic To Market) you started back in 2009?

Why not provide some incentive for contributors to upload? As I see it there are some major problems with your site from a contributor point of view.

25% is not a competitive royalty rate.
And not anything near the best offer on the web as you state on your website.

Plenty of the new/small sites are offering decent commissions (40-75%) and in exchange I send them my illustrations even if they don't have many sales because that's where I would like to see this industry headed - a fairer split between agency and contributor. Why on earth would I want to submit to a site that pays me less than the average agency ? What would make me want to support a site like this? I might consider it if the site had heavy traffic and lots of sales, but I doubt this is the case here.

The following are all non-exclusive rates at different sites:

DepositPhotos - 44% - 52%
ClipartOf - 50%
GL Stock Images (Graphic Leftovers) - 52%
Stockfresh - 50%
FeaturePics - 50%
YayMicro - 50%
AllYouCanStock - 75%
Drawshop - 50%
CutCaster - 40%
The3DStudio - 60%
123RF - 50%

Prices are too low
Not quite sure how vectors are prices, but it seems the range is $2 - $4. Extended licenses starting from $10 (5 times the standard price of a vector) is unheard of.

I am sold now thanks for clearing that up. Sheesh.

My main issue is that your prices are waaaaaaay too low.
My next issue that your percentage rates are also low.
My third issue is that you seem to have done no research as to other sites pricing and rates.
My fourth issue is that you have been very rude.
My fifth issue is that you previous enterprises have failed.
My sixth issue is that the site functionality for buyers isn't there "after purchasing by paypal you will receive an email", grammatical errors all over the place, and there doesn't even seem to be a keyword search option.

Well, my purpose with this post was to inform the community and enhanced my website, i will keep in mind only the constructive comments.

This post was just to give the info, nobody is forced to sell or buy its cliparts on my site.
However, I can only suggest to some of you, for being in agreement with their comments, to sell all their cliparts exclusively on the site with the best offer : Allyoucanstock.


Just for info : Superpicto was the first step to Clipartbox. This website was in Flash and not opened to contributors CQFD.

Istock pays lower commissions, but charges more to its customers, so the contributor earns more per sale.
Shutterstocks low subscription prices and commissions are compensated by the amount of sales. I don't expect the same number of sales from a relatively new agency.

GL Stock Images pays 52%. 123RF pays 50% at the moment.

Also don't forget that our cut on these other sites goes on things like advertising our work, and least paying someone to come up with a working search function on the site. It seems this new site just wants their massive cut for giving us the privileged of having our work on the site at all.
