Same thing for me gnirtS

I wish I could quit Shutterstock, but looking at my numbers at Pond5 and AdobeS, that would be the end of me in this business.
January with only 15% comission SS made me 3x what P5 did. Normally its 5x(+).

I did quit Istock and Storyblocks at the time, for the same reasons, but unfortunately I cant afford to do the same with Shutterstock.

Just saw your portfolio. Your animations are great!

I took down my portfolio at Storyblocks when they introduced the new membership program. I wasnt too happy with the 50% cut and the low sales already... AS and P5 didnt took off after that. I am afraid I might have done the wrong move, considering your statistics.

Thanks.

I find your earnings very good considering the size of your portfolio.
I have the same earnings in Adobe Stock with 6K videos :(

"Average for the last half of 2019, about $235 a month... average for 2020, about $425 a month."

Can you tell me the size of your portfolio, please?

AS is getting worst every month comparing to last years earnings. Very frustrating!!!

2019: JUNE = $ 123.19  / JULY =  $ 238.28  / AUGUST =  $ 155.50
2020: JUNE =  $ 86.34  / JULY =  $ 53.20  / AUGUST =  $ 51.45

If this goes on Ill have to close my account. Not worth all the work!

Ridiculous!!!

Shutterstock doesn't deserve my editorial videos anymore, but they are the only one that actually sells them :(
Come on Adobe, do something about it!

Great videos man!

I sell my videos on different agencies!

I have always asked myself if it wouldn't be better to stay only at Pond5...

What drives me down off this ideia is the fact that Pond5 have its "dry seasons" too. Shutterstock sometimes saves my life, despite the low price business practice.

Terrible month for my videos!! Worst than I could ever expect... Very depressing  :-[

16
I sold only 1 4K video in more than 3 years there. I have always found this very odd...

17
Absolutely dry here. Worst than ever with a 5K portfolio  >:(

Shutterstock.com / Slow server
« on: September 12, 2018, 10:04 »
Hello,

Is anyone here experiencing a slow server problem when uploading through FTP ?

I have a fast internet connection here. Same files uploaded to other agencies servers are going 10x faster than shutterstocks lately. Really annoying  >:(

Pond5 / Re: No sales at pond5: over 3 years now
« on: August 21, 2018, 03:24 »
I make the same, but with more than 5K videos :(

21

2 months gap between the 2 different changes...  Really smart move from them  >:(

You are right my friend.  ;)
 
I just read more carefully the same email they sent and found out this;

"By October 15, 2018, we will raise the publicized price of HD footage to $79. This is the price that guests will pay to purchase an HD clip. "

I guess until 15 october price will remain at 49$...  >:( >:( >:(

23
 Where is the 79$ sale????

 >:( >:( >:(
