Since they started accepting photos and illustrations are anyone seeing sales of images other than from the referral at 123rf?  I haven't uploaded my entire image port there yet and am hoping that there are image sales through P5.

Thanks :)

sad to say but I get better results on YAY and Pantermedia than Pond5 with photos. Heard they rock with videos... :-\

You know I want even aware of some sort of co-op between pond5 and 123?  but if thats a fact, no wonder they dont sell anything. As they all do, they started well and then it just faded away. Pointless at the moment.

Its also basically a video agency.

Sold my first one this week.  I haven't uploaded everything yet.  Not good but I'll give them a year to get going with stills.  If the stills sites can sell videos, hopefully Pond5 should be able to sell stills eventually.

I've been there since 2011 and took me over a year to sell my first footage file (my footage port isn't that big yet need to work on that).

I'll probably start uploading images there after the first of the year.  They're still new at it as it being on their site so I agree some time is in order.

Video sales are very good compared to other sites. Photo sales are still slow but the deal is good with
%50 rate and set your own price. That's the kind of deal lots of folks are clammering for! It hasn't taken them very long to get into the middle tier on the MSG poll results once they started accepting photos directly.

I had one photo sale there when they first opened it up, but had nothing since.

Easily my best selling video site though, and the deal for contributors is great for photo too, so I really hope sales pick up on the photo side.

Had a couple of sales, for fair money.  $3-5 range.  Review times have been good and I have most of my portfolio there now.

Got an email after my first batch was approved noting that they had duplicate images because of their relationship with 123.  They asked if I wanted my images hosted through them or through the connection with 123.  I told them I wanted to host with them and they removed the connection for my stuff @ 123.
