Just wondering is it worth the effort of joining and uploading.
You know the way it is with less established sites - all that work and little return!!

Any views on this one?

It is an established site in Germany.  I am uploading as it is the only way to tell if it is worth it.

do you know if keywords entered in English are somehow translated to German for German buyers?

Just checked, they translate the keywords. I recently submitted images with English keywords and I can find them if I switch language to German and search with German keywords.

@takestock As I said elsewhere I am doing well on Panthermedia. This month I already have a return of about 1 Euro/image. This is less then istock but better than SS and the rest on a per image basis.
Next month I think they will also reduce the commission from 50% to 30% for those who sell their stuff on the micros, so I espect my earnings to decline because of this.

However, you have to be patiened there, often sales reports come in a month later. And I am mainly selling penguins, I do not know how well other images sell there.

Thanks! This is good news.

I have about 100 pictures there - less then on other sites because until recently I had to translate everything into German, even for me as a native speaker that was a big hassle - and have only sold about 3 pics in the year or so I have been uploading.  Those 3 pics netted me 50 Euros, mind you, but still ....
Uploading can be cumbersome and just recently my perfect record (100% approval rating) has changed to a 100% rejection rate (only for like 5 pics but it bothers me nevertheless) so I am not sure what to do about them.  Traffic is very low and I think I'll just keep uploading at a low rate for the time being and see what happens but I am not sure I'd join again.
Hope that helps,

Tina
