I am a newbie here, so sorry for my ignorance here.

I am aware of the merging of Pixmac and P5, and i have a couple of question here.

1) Can we set our own Pricing for our images in Pixmac since P5 allow us to do so??

2) Pixmac are partners to FeaturePics, DepositPhotos & Yay Micro and now P5.
    Instead of uploading to all sites, does it mean by uploading to Pixmac, all images are directly imported to the other 4 sites as well????

3) Now that Pixmac, FeaturePics, depositphotos, Yay micro, P5 and 123rf (P5 and 123rf are partners) are directly linked, how is our commission going to be calculated since some of the sites are subscription based?

Hi Pixmac reps, can you guys please pop in here and give us an update on the Pond5 merger? It's coming up to nearly a month past the initial deadline you had set, and I am wondering when we can expect the actual changes to take place?

It's nice to see a handfull of sales coming from Pixmac lately, but sad to see they aren't reflecting the 50% that they should have by now.

Could you give us an update please? Thanks a lot.

The vector illustrations I have uploaded to Pixmac are not yet searchable via Pond5, am I correct?

Any news on the merging? I sent Pixmac an email but I haven't received any kind of response.

Just wondering ... did this merger develop as expected?  Apologies if there's another thread I should be looking at?  ???

It seemed like a nice-ish bit of news - one of the few good ones - thus the curiosity!

When I cashed out at pixmac this week, the payment came from Pond5 - so in that sense they are merged.

In terms of the images or sites merging, they're still separate. Sales (for photos) don't seem to be great at either (although I have only a fraction of my stuff at either site - was sort of waiting for something to happen with the merger before doing more uploading, but...)

Same here. Never got a sales lift from the merger.

Thanks for the update  :)

I wanted to give them a go and was wondering whether its better to go thru Pixmac or Pond5 (since I have mostly photos).  But I guess that may be a premature question if the merger is still not fully implemented - and maybe hard to predict how exactly it will go.

I stopped uploading pictures to Pixmac a long time ago because we were told that images would be mirrored at both so I just upload to Pond5.  Unfortunately this hasn't happened yet as far as I'm aware and I'm wondering if it's ever going to happen or should I just start uploading to Pixmac directly again?

The mirroring of accounts is a mess. I have requested to have mine looked into at least 3 times now and nothing has changed. I've also noticed they've now removed the link from your Pixmac Profile page to Pond5, so it's harder to see if your images have been mirrored or not.

The mirrored content is cheaper than I have set my Pond5 images at, so I'm not sure whether getting it all mirrored would be a good thing anyway. I thought initially we were told we were going to be able to control our pricing on both sites - am i remembering that right?

Sadly, the day this merger was announced this all seemed like an awesome move. But since then it appears little has been done and even less communicated to us as a community about it.

The staff at both sites are always friendly to deal with, but it just seems that little happens behind the scenes. (e.g.: does the pond5 site even mention that you can now upload vectors? I checked for weeks and could see nothing on there about it)

I think you're remembering correctly.  It was my understanding that we would be able to control our own pricing on Pixmac as well.
