Global Partner Program.


--- Quote ---The Global Partner Program allows you to distribute your work to a group of hand-selected resellers and high-volume customers who have not previously used our marketplace. Pond5 has officially signed eight hand-selected distribution partners, including a new partnership with Adobe, the industry-leader in creative desktop and mobile apps.

By participating in the Global Partner Program, Pond5 Artists will receive royalties comparable to selling directly through our partners, while also benefiting from unique sales and marketing opportunities, premium pricing, and the ability to earn additional royalties from enhanced license sales all through one upload to Pond5. As always, Pond5 artists will receive their industry-leading revenue share of all sales Pond5 generates from these collaborations.

If you are opted-in to our Global Partner Program, there is nothing additional you need to do to take advantage of this partnership. If you already contribute content to Adobe Stock or one of our other resellers, no action is needed, as they will be working to prevent duplication on their sites.

I forgot to mention that all three options: Global Partner Program, Limited License Program, and Optimized Marketplace Pricing are unchecked for months...

Yes definitely some partner program. I got 6 of those yesterday and all 47.99(the were sold as HD not 4K) except one for 42.34$(HD), so net close to 20$. Not complaining. At Shutterstock my latest sales before disabling portfolio were between 0.60$ to 18$. Cannot imagine how it looks out there now. Adobe is bringing also some nice figures but so far P5 is the best of the two.

Well, you should write a complain if you opted-out of GPP, and stuff like that.
You should write it because if you let agency sell your files at whatever price they want eg. 4K 199$ fot 47$, and you get 40% of that 47% - that is not good man. It is very bad actually!

If its higher that SS currently, just wait for some time, you WILL see those 1.5$ and 0.6$ sales on Pond5 also.
