The sales of my exclusive P5 account are getting worse and worse. I am thinking of switching from exclusive to standard account.

How long do I have to wait before I can upload my media with other agencies?

And if I delete my portfolio at P5, how long do I have to wait until I can upload my media at other agencies?

What happens if I no longer want to be exclusive with Pond5?

If youre a participating artist, you can withdraw from the Pond5 Exclusivity Program by providing 6 months written notice for us to shift your account to a non-exclusive one. After that period, you can also opt back in at any time.

As I understand it from their FAQ the time period is 6 months.

If I remember well it takes about six months, but why don't you simply ask them?
Usually Pond5 answer quickly

The exclusive lure is bunk on P5. They admit that you do not get special placement in the search.  Only a better share if your content happens to sell.  But you are still competing against 100% of any competitive non-exclusive content to your exclusive content.  So unless your content is truly unique with little competition, going exclusive there isn't worth it in my opinion.

Thanks, guys. I have requested the termination of exclusivity. P5 says I have to wait 6 months.

My exclusive content used to be very good, double number of clips than non-exclusive. But in the last few months the sales have been fewer and fewer and lower and lower.
Maybe the algorithm is also bad because I rarely upload anything there anymore.
GPP sales used to be particularly good. But unfortunately, there are no more GPP sales since the contract with AS was terminated.

My non-exclusive content sells a bit better. Maybe later - after 6 months - I will put all media into one non-exclusive account. There I upload constantly something new. Maybe that's better for the algorithm.
But if there are only small-priced sales and my original prices are only ignored by P5, then I might close my accounts too.
