They are just rejecting anything and everything.Even my images that have resisted the inspection scrutiny of istock, dreamstime, FT, PM, etc..

Anyone else having the same problem?Ofcourse my images are technically correct if they are on the big 3.I don't find their rejection relevant/valid.
As I can see to my right, Zoonar is way below the other sites, but I am sticking to them just because they have agefotostock as their partner.Even alamy but I am already selling there directly.Should I bother uploading again or other pics?Anyone else contributing to them?Should I stick to them or forget about them?

Thank you.

I'm experiencing the opposite.  I have a very high rate of acceptance.  What I don't have is revenue; my last payout was eight months ago.  Still, there's so little effort involved that I figure I may as well keep at it.  And I'm only a few Euros away from that elusive payment.  Hope springs eternal...

Stopped uploading to them few months back due to NO revenue. At that stage also had no problems getting my images accepted. Maybe they have now employed one of the Crestock reviewers.  ;D

Yes now after reading another thread with comments about rejections same as mine, I think Zoonar is a total waste of time.Forget sales.They reject everything.May be as the last poster on the other thread said, cultural bias.Well, could be, especially when they are rejecting images which have resisted the scrutiny of the large sites.

Find the thread here:

Will not be uploading more.Will let my accepted images be online for a while and see if I get any sales.Or else, request for deletion.

They reject nearly all my stuff too - apart from when I first submitted when they accepted things I wouldn't bother to submit now that I've learnt to improve my standards?! I have managed to earn 14c though!

Really not worth worrying about, they don't sell anything.  I uploaded all my best sellers to them at the same time as 5 or 6 other sites.  Have had hundreds of sales from the others and one measly sale from Zoonar.

I, too, have a very high rejection rate at Zoonar - even material that sells well on other sites.  I figured it was a cultural difference.  I haven't uploaded anything there in quite a while.  Zero sales so far.  It's very low on my priority list.

Cultural bias...It is very shameful.They should get a life.They could clearly mention with dignity that they are currently not accepting any submissions from the foreign contributors or so.Something like that.Rejecting this way isr ridiculous.

@csproductions:

I have joined your club sir.Not going to upload any more.Low on priority list?Forget it.It doesn't deserve to be even at the lower level.

just started uploading a few days and got one or two rejections from 250 uploads perhaps

perhaps you fit their "cultural mode" : )

Still make $ from them but rejections forced me to stop uploading months ago...perhaps I'm a cultural dolt...

I suppose it's the content or the quality of your images is what doesn't suit Zoonar.

My acceptance rate remains above 99%
I do occasionally upload there as the process is extremely simple and not taking my time; and occasionally there are some sales, and the number of partners is gradually growing...

I don't think so sir.Because my images don't have any technical flaws.I post process them to correct the flaws and they are approved by the big 3 at very 1st go.Not even any resubmission.So if my images can resist their scrutiny and get online, I bet my images are technically correct.And my content is objects, people, animals and etc..Something that sells everywhere.Zoonar even has a partner who only wants animal images.So my images not meeting up their content requirements is totally out of question.

sometimes they reject everything, sometimes they accept everything - it seems they are not the only ones doing so; but in average, acceptance ratio is good for me

and while it's true that there are almost no direct sales, their partner programs make it worth with a few decently priced sales now and then

I'd say it's senseless to worry about an irrelevant agency such as Zoonar... ;)

I have a good acceptance rate at Zoonar, above 90%, and sales were acceptable untill my last payout more than 6 months ago. Since then I've had only one sale.

I have to disagree with irrelevant rejections, I have started uploading recently and must have about a 95% approval rate, much better than most libraries.

Yet to see sales, but then I haven't been there long enough and haven't got my whole portfolio up there yet.

I moved in a couple of weeks ago.
I have had 0 rejections ( I might have forgotten a few)
I have 137 files online.
I have had no sales.
Im not participating in any partners programs, as there is a time limit of 6 months.

just info.
