What are prices compared to FT?  And commissions?

I haven't checked FT forum, but it is annoying to have them closing threads without a reason.  Delete offensive posts, but do not close a legitimate discussion.

Regards,
Adelaide

As I posted above, the site seems to sell per image sales that range from 1 to 15 credits.

But I have no idea what the commissions are.

Also, I have checked a few of the larger contributors and they haven't sold much of anything yet.  Out of the three contributors that I checked, there was only 1 sale among them.

I'd looked at this site before but the FAQ put me off.. the spelling doesn't reek of professionalism.

" Please notice, that we will not make the payout without you will click on the buttom"

"If there are more poople in the picture"  ;D

In fact, it might be fun to print out copies of the FAQ http://www.pixmac.com/infocenter/name/FAQ-photographers and then keep them on your desk to use as a wordsearch/spot the mistake while having a coffee break.

If I understand correctly, we are paid what we normally would get paid from Fotolia. Reference the earlier posts on page one. The answers from Pixmac.
[/qoute] Hello,
Pixmac is a new microstock agency. Beside our own collection, we also feature on our website the Fotolia collection because we have an affiliation and are Fotolias reseller. This is the reason you see your photos on our website, we are another distributing channel. We have no hires of Fotolias pictures - you will see all your downloads as well as your commission in your Fotolia account. In case there is any download of pictures you have uploaded on Fotolia, you still will get the same comission and you will be payed by Fotolia,  like you would be by downloads through Fotolia directly.
[/qoute]

good to see they put my name on my pictures and they also mention fotolia in some way. (not so openly but with abbreviation),which could end the confusion.and according to current numbers they sold several hundred of my files.not bad:)

Zager,

It is interesting that FT said in the forum that exclusive images are available through API resellers, as they are still FT image bank.  In the blog you say they won't show in Pixmac.  Is that an optional thing for you as a reseller?  I'm just curious, as I don't have anything exclusive with FT.

Regards,
Adelaide

I have images exclusively at Fotolia and they are showing as available for download on pixmac site, so exclusive photos are available there not just non-exclusives. I tested the site a while ago by purchasing some of my own images and I still get the same commission as I would do if the image was sold directly from Fotolia. The sale displays in my sales member area as a purchase from/by Pixmac. I see no problems with this from my point of view.

Why would FT exclusives at pixmac be a problem? Fotolia is obviously happy with that and I as a contributor don't see any problem with that...
