Ive had this happen twice.
Once was a clip that had made about $50 total in 3 years so a very easy decision to get rid of it for a lot more money than it would likely ever make.  I still cant work out why anyone would want it.

Second was my most popular clip thats pulled in thousands (and continues to do so) so i said no.

what is the process they do to transfer the rights? What documents do they ask for?
Thank you in advance!

from these 400 usd this clip made 289 usd in November 2020, I think is curious

I am happy to notify you that we are interested in buying all rights to footage xxxxxxx in your portfolio on behalf of our client. For this offer to proceed, I would like to know the following from you.

1. Are you interested in a full copyright transfer of this footage to Shutterstock for $3,033.85 commission?
2. Where else is the footage available and for how long has it been available at those agencies? (If terms are finalized, the footage and similars will need to be removed from all other agencies, including Shutterstock)
3. Are there similar footages in addition to and that we need to be aware of? If yes, please explain where the similars are and how many exist total.

This offer is very time sensitive so please confirm whether or not you are interested in this offer as soon as possible. I look forward to hearing from you.

today I received this message from shutter, any experiences or opinions?
This clip has generated 400 usd so far, I have it for about 2 years on the market. And also does anyone know what is the process they do to transfer the rights? What documents do they ask for?
Thank you in advance!

I know life gets busy and keeping up with emails can sometimes be a challenge, but I wanted to see if you had the chance to get our early invitation to the Storyblocks special pilot program? Its been a hit with the contributors that have chosen to take part, and 90% are staying in it. The majority of contributors have doubled their earnings! Thats because it taps into a larger source of revenue and a portion of subscription sales goes directly to them. Going forward, we expect our subscription library to become the primary revenue source for our contributors.

We would love if you could join in before we launch the program to a larger base of contributors, at which point the program will be available to anyone to apply to on a first come, first serve basis.

Based on the incredible quality of your portfolio and our current search gaps you have been hand-selected to join early. We are proposing to transfer your full portfolio from the Marketplace to our Member Library where you could earn much more. And, we dont limit where you can put your content. The Member Library is non-exclusive so you can continue to sell the same content anywhere!

If we do not hear from you, we will remove your spot and open this program to other contributors.

Do you want to opt in? Respond to this email to get started!

Want to hear from contributors? Here are first-hand testimonials from contributors currently in the program:

It definitely paid back having a little patience while the great guys at Storyblocks developed their new program! We were literally blown away by the sales and the revenues that surpassed even the best months of Videoblocks. And it can only get better. Moreover the support team is always extremely friendly and helpful.

The new Storyblocks Partnership Program is proving to be an exciting new concept in a stock media market that is in sore need of some refreshment. I have seen positive increases in sales and revenue during the early stages of the program that are encouraging to me as a contributor while the increase in content must be equally appreciated by buyers.

Almost immediately I understood the essence of the new program because it opens up the market for new consumers. Everyone decides for himself, I made my choice and am very pleased with it!

I was paid on March 6th as well -  via PayPal. Probably time to contact Shutterstock to ask about this if you haven't received yours
should i contact them now, or wait until the 15th

I also did not get paid up to today March 14th. (first time it happens)
I was told I am not alone and I should be patient and wait.
Well, I am both but that still does not give a specific date of payment.
It would be better if us affected got a clear answer.
who told you? have you communicated with shutterstock?

Hey guys,

Anyone else not getting paid yet by SS? Usually I receive it earlier between the 6th and 8th, I know we are not on the 15th yet, but it's the first time since I contributed with them 7 years ago.

22 / Lucky day on shutterstock
« on: November 14, 2018, 08:49 »
yesterday was a lucky day for me in shutterstock, I opened my account and found that i had sold 12 videos and made 470$ which is never happened before. my best day was that I sold 4 videos and made 120$.
I'm really happy but at the same time worried, because I believe I've heard that there are members who had their accounts suspended for lucky days like this, so is something i have to worry about ?

I got sale yesterday and the price still at $49.00!!!

I sent to them that the price seems very low to me and I would not take the offer, and they replayed me:

" Definitely understandable. We're happy to work with you to make sure we're not taking your top sellers or anything like that. Did you have another price in mind for 100 files? "

Hello everyone!
I just recived this message from storyblocks:

I'm the Acquisition Manager for the VideoBlocks Member Library. I just came across your portfolio-- I really love your work!

We're interested in buying some footage from you on a non-exclusive license to expose more of our users to your content. For the Member Library, we typically buy in bulk for an up front cost. Since it is non-exclusive, you can of course continue selling that same content on other sites, however, we would move the selected files from your VideoBlocks Marketplace portfolio.

We can make the initial selection and then you can have the final approval, that way you can let us know if there are files you would prefer not to sell.

Let me know if you are interested. We can offer you $2,500 for 100 files.


I think the price is very low because I will lose the opportunity to sell them in videoblocks, but I want to know what do you think?!!
thank you in advance for your opinion
