Shutterstock.com / Worst month on shutterstock
« on: June 23, 2019, 16:55 »
It looks like june is going to be my worst month on shutterstock and i cant understand why?
Anyone else?

I think its a positive news that they removed the heads up notification when you search footage that its not part of their membership program.

Pond5 / Non exclusive will be cut to 40% on pond5
« on: April 08, 2019, 09:10 »

VideoBlocks / Sales dropped down by 90% on storyblocks
« on: December 12, 2018, 05:17 »
With portfolio of 10,000 videos.
I have 2-3 sales per month.
What the hell happen?
I use to had 10-20 sales per month.

Recently I noticed that I had more than few sales when my earnings were only 1.50$ for video Footage.
When I started submitting to shutterstock you told me that I will earn 23.70$ for hd footage and 59$ for 4K.
In the past years I saw that most of my earnings were less than 23.70$ sometimes 15$ sometimes 8.21 and less. Now you broke a new record and gave me 1.50$ for footage video. This is outrageous!!!!
I cannot accept this kind of deal.
I prefer not to sell on shutterstock  if you will continue to sell my really hard work for 1.50$.
I don't want to participate in sales that my files are sold like a joke.
It took me hard work and years to achieve such a large portfolio with more than 10000 footages from all around the world.
I dont want to hear your reasons on why my files are being sold with 1.50$ (because I know them).
I want you to say that this kind of deals will never appear with my portfolio.
I have to say that I was so proud over the years to be a part of shuttersock community and now when I saw the reactions of other producers who are saying that they lost the trust on shutterstock when they get only 1.50$ for footages I can understand them completely.
I look at other agencies like POND5 and Storyblocks who I work with them also for years and they are paying 50% commission and they are listening to their producers and never ever will do such thing like selling without asking us with such al low price.
Even though it took me 6 years to add  10000 videos on shutterstock I really consider to remove my entire portfolio from your site.
Hope to hear from you as soon as possible.

Every sale i have on storyblocks (which became rare) i wait at least 3 days before i feel that i can enjoy from it.
So many refund history. How come its only at them and depositphotos?
Never at pond5 or shutterstock.
Anyone else?

Microstock Services / Microstockr app support has gone?
« on: February 27, 2017, 08:02 »

Shutterstock.com / No sales for 10 days
« on: January 03, 2017, 01:27 »
I have more than 5000 files at ss and never had such along pause between sales. Is this normal?
Not even one sale for more than 10 days?

VideoBlocks / Many refunds at videoblocks (smells bad)
« on: February 17, 2016, 14:55 »
I wanted to ask tou guys if you had this experience with videoblocks.
I am 6 months contributor at videoblocks and i had more then 10 refunds which inever had on any other agencies?
I start to fill that something is weird and so good.
I satrted with conspiracy theories that maybe they are saying to me that i have refund but they are keeping the money to themselves and basically no one can really know if ther was realy refund.
In all 5 years that i am in this industry i had maybe 2-3 refunds on all the sites together
Can someone calm me and say that i am just paranoid?

Shutterstock.com / Can someone help me understand?
« on: January 26, 2016, 12:32 »
I am in the industry for 5 years and still didn't get how ss pays me every sale with different amount.
When i started submitting to ss i saw the list of royalties and it says 23.70$ per hd clip.
95% of my sales are not this amount.
Every time its 20.3 or 19.7 or something like this.
I never understood how they calculate my sales.
And last week i had one sale of hd clip and i got 96$!!!
Its not that I complain but i really dont get the system.
Can someone explain how it works?
Because when i asked ss this question they didnt gave me any answer.

VideoHive / Videohive- you dont deserve my work
« on: January 07, 2016, 13:04 »
For years i am trying to get into the "exclusive" videohive marketplace. Made large packages with high quality files for few bucks.
They will reject 95% of your pirtfolio but when they aprroving something your feeling is "wow i am realy good"
Well enough is enough.
I removed allmost all of my portfolio from videohive even that I worked hard for years to expand my portfolio there.
They are pretending that they are not stock footage site but only platform.
They are taking 66% from your sale
They are rejecting your work even if the same files are making so much money and success on other sites.
They give the pricie for your work.
But they dont take responsibility for the client.
Its never to late to open your eyes.

VideoHive / Decided to remove 50% from my portfolio at videohive
« on: January 02, 2016, 09:52 »
I removed all my hd files since they sell the hd files with 8$ and i get only 3$ while at videoblocks i get 42$ fot the same file.
I have to say that i had decent sales at videohive but i think that they are doing damage to the stock industry with such low prices. I think maybe to remove all my portfolio since they charge 4k files with only 25$.
But i will wait with such a drastic move.
What do you think?

VideoBlocks / We need to help videoblocks to grow
« on: December 14, 2015, 11:41 »
I think videoblocks is once in a decade site that pays the contributor 100% from sales.
We need to put all the effort to make them grow so other sites will see that we the contributors are the most valuable assets for them and they must pay us much more than 20/30/50 %
Without us they are nobody.
I must say that i had untill now such a positive experience with videoblocks. The staff talk to you like ahunan been and not like anunber.
They pay your earnings on rhe 15th without deelays.
They are absolutely great.
Its anout time to say the big agencies like shutter/getty/pond5 "there's anew player in this game"
