Adobe Stock / Re: Adobe Stock Creative Cloud Bonus Program
« on: October 27, 2019, 01:51 »
I reached 300 videos for 2019 in August, But haven't received the all apps bonus yet. It's been almost 8 weeks. Are the bonuses sent out individually based on when you reached the threshold or are they sent out in batches so some might get them in less time than the 6-8 week time frame and others longer than the 6-8 week time frame?

I have the same problem (with photos)...

91 refunds.

Just shaking my head.

33 refunds also here !!!!! Worst month in the last years (3y +...) !!!!!!!!!

I'm wandering if it's worth it....

Authors must meet the minimum activity requirements for at least one item type to be eligible.
But how can I have activity if the upload process for me, as a photographer, is off ?

I stop uploading after they cut our royalties.

I think the only agency that increase our royalties is Fotolia/Adobe. I love them!

Love them now, Sebastian, but make sure you're wearing protection. I tried dating Fotolia a long time ago and got into trouble. Never again.

I don't know why, but after that post my sales stopped on Ft/As and my FT rank has dropped drastically to 22.300  :-[ :(
What a strange coincidence.. this has never happened to me

They offer 5 images for FREE if you register with a card an activate a monthly subscription.
Anyway, form now I will stop uploading to them. The effort and the associated risks are no longer justified !!

They don't deserve it!

I also uploaded some image there (on April 30th), but even my ID was not verified...


Answer from Canstock: is run by our affiliate Fotosearch. On Freeart the only the smallest print size on paper is free for the customers, they only pay for shipping. You would get paid the Paper Print Minimum Commission (e.g. free print offers) of $0.25.

Freeart will is marketing your content for print and product sales. You would receive 20% of paper print sales as you always have, and will now also make sales on other physical products (e.g. acrylic, metal, canvas, etc.). These are higher-priced retail items with a 10% royalty, which will result in higher commissions (up to $49.90) than most digital image sales.

It is possible to opt-out of selling your images on Freeart, just keep in mind that youll be opting out of the entire site, and will forgo any of the high commission print offerings.

Please confirm if you want to remove your portfolio from Freeart and we will take care of it immediately.

I hope this helps.

Just a little reminder:
The last funny story, when they introduced a Flexible Plan (in fact, 1 image for $1, on demand) a lot of people left Depositphotos or deactivated the images. And you know what? They started to block deactivation! You could kick down 5 works, then get error message and delay before you could deactivate the next 5. And all the time they replied that everything is fine and they did not block anything. Then they started to whine to every contributor's e-mail, that Flexible Plan is a temporary solution and they will turn it off soon. Guess what? Plan is still there, for almost two years. And they advertise it every month.
I don't know, why some people are still there, really.

I remember that. I closed my account in a few days after they do those things.
No regrets !!!!
