Well, I was searching the net to find new places to sell photos and here is the result.

This site -not- on the MSG list on the right hand side.

http://www.photocase.com

I thought it would be good to let you guys know since there is a site named Paxxion on the list which is a total loser. Paxxion is like 4 millionth something on web rankings. So no way you can currently make any sales using paxxion.  

Btw, I should let you know that I am not using it, nor will I use it in the future as they don't sell vectors. Just thought It would be ok to post it here since there are many rubbish sites on the right anyway!  ;)

quote from geopappas in that thread

At this point, I wouldn't submit anything to them.
First, members can get free credits easily.  For example, members get 3 free credits every week.  Images "purchased" with those credits earn the contributor nothing.  So, in other words, people can have your images for free if they simply join.
Second, if you delete an image, then you lose 5 credits.
Third, all images are 1 euro, and you only get 60% of that.  So a 16 or 20 MP image will get you the same royalty as a 2 MP image.
Finally, the image on the homepage has a woman picking her nose.  I'm not sure about others, but that alone was a huge turn off.
Sorry, but I don't feel like supporting another site that seems to be in a race to the bottom.


I had a quick look,  about 150k images.  images are 2,4 or 6 credits, so good for small but not so good for very large.
But any registered user gets 2 freebie credits free a week that you dont get paid for and any photographer gets 6 freebie credits for every approved image that you also dont get paid for. so thats a lot of images being given away (way too many for me).

You are right! Didn't notice it was that awful! Now, that I looked again, I see what you mean! Stay away from this one!

I should have read it from A to Z before I posted it!

I'm with this site I have to say with just a few sales and with only 6 images online I made more than with some other big and famous stockagancies.
They are very picky about approving images (they have a special collection)
But the views you got on your images are amazing (one image 3 weeks online and several sales with over 1000 views)
I'm not saying the are the best they have issues (see poster above mine post) but I like it.......

i just don't get why people bashing photocase in this forum for not being a another big6 copy!?

yes, a small size download cost 2 credits, normal size 4 credits and xxl cost 6 credits. they also offer extended licensing and so on. with 1 small download i am earning 1 to 1,50 or with a regular download i earn 2 - 2,40.

i don't see the problem with the free downloads, since i earn more money there with just 60 shots online, as i am doing with ~300 shots on fotolia. last month i had 23 downloads (paid and free credits combined) and i've earned 18. if you have 23 subscription downloads at shutter and you'll have just 7.59$ (~5.30). so whats the problem? think of the newly invented 0.25 subs system on istock. is that better?

i for one use my free credits for desktop wallpapers or sometimes i print one of the pictures for my walls. i don't use them commercial in any way and i think this is what most the of photographers is doing with their credits as well.
