Did anyone contributing on Eyeem, do you have any sales?

Yes, on the EyeEm/Getty collection. But not on their own Market yet.

What is average sale price on Getty collection $$?

"I am also worried that eyeem will not really be marketed as a sales plattform, that instead it will just be another content feeder agency for Getty. Similar to the content they took from flickr."

Agreed. I have over 800 images on EyeEm Market, now, with 227 of them approved for the EyeEm Collection at Getty Images, yet, when I visit the Getty Images website and search for the EyeEm Collection there, nothing turns up at all and there is no mention of EyeEm or the EyeEm Collection on Getty's site at all. Thus, I am wondering if this is a one-sided arrangement in which EyeEm Market is gaining some status from their claim to a Getty connection, while Getty is pretending EyeEm doesn't exist. It's either that or, as you say, EyeEm is just being used as a "feeder" site for Getty's purposes. Considering the overall quality of the images at EyeEm and the fact that most EyeEm members treat the site as a social networking venue, I'd say that must be the case.

I went to the Getty web site and, using the RF Collection filter, I was able to select the Eyeem and Eyeem Premium collections.  Total of 734,771 files are shown.

Yep. Since posting, I found a link that I believe Cobalt posted to the EyeEm Collection. However, in searching the collection (All Images/USA/Seattle) I found absolutely none of my own. So, I guess what EyeEm's reviewers mean, when they email me to tell me my work has been "shortlisted for inclusion in the EyeEm Collection at Getty Images" is that my images are being considered for inclusion, but have not actually been included, yet.

Another gripe I have with the EyeEm Collection is the lack of sufficient filters there. Where are the filters for any of the tags I've so laboriously spent my time entering on each of my images? I would expect, at minimum, that a client looking through the collection should be able to specify, for example, black and white.

I also tried to cut to the chase by searching for myself by name, under Photographers, but no luck, there. Of course, if I'm right that my images haven't yet been included in the collection, then that explains that, right?

It can take a month or more for files to move over to Getty...just ask the istock exclusives.... Files will also get a new description and keywords.

The quality of description and keywords is debatable...but you can write to their support if it is really out of line.

Eyeem is community and visual fun first and shouldn't be seen as a stonehard stock agency, although I am sure some people that specialize on them will make money, like always.

Maybe once their marketplace grows it will be different, but building a worldwide stock community takes time. The world is a big place, lots of people to connect...

Their support is very friendly and helpful, often answers within one hour, sometimes 20 minutes.

Everyone will have their own way of working, but I really love eyeem just the way it is.

I just entered EyeEm but I was so stupid to click a button so I receive every mail concerning other images who have the same tags. I don't want to receive a hundred emails about images in the same tags. What do I do to avoid this? And how long does it take to know if the images are accepted at the EyeEm site? I have uploaded about 15 images.
Hope to hear something.
