What the heck, did they change the minimum payout to $60? I'd swear it was $30 earlier?

Not sure if they changed it, i didn't pay attention to payout threshold before and my payouts always over $100.

good luck sir

Same, flat $4.

better than SStock 0.84c/clip

I don't know how anyone could be satisfied with $4 per clip. That's pretty insulting. I was considering submitting some commercial videos of mine to Yay but now I'm glad that I didn't. I think I'll keep my distance from this agency.

So far I have no problem with them.

Just requested my 2nd payout with them. Yayhooo!

Pond5 / Re: Pond5 will remove ability to set prices?
« on: September 03, 2019, 08:51 »
my clip priced higher at P5 for buyer that want to appreciate and give more to the artist that create it even though they know they can get cheaper elsewhere. and I do value my work that much, and the risk buyer run away to cheaper option also on me. but 8 years on P5 my income growth despite higher price tag proof that price is not the case.

If I can set price higher at SS i would do, but I can't and SS have their own business model.

Why those idiots at P5 wanna follow SS price setting? 79$ is fair price? why not 34$? why not 400$ a clip?

On my firsthand experience selling my content on various marketplaces with varied price tag, the hysteria about buyer will run to cheaper sites is not 100% true. it's almost a decade now and higher priced marketplaces still not outshines by free/cheaper content marketplaces.

Only my Pond5 sales down from 700$ average to no more than 100$, i feel this is pure sabotage by the agency, not because of competitor, not search engine tweak. those idiots.

every other sites are normal even in this yearly slow season.

My yearly payout until last year, I pull everything out end of 2018.

My portfolio is really a strong portfolio for 8 years!! not anymore since royalty cut and introduction of exclusivity.

I blame that idiot newcomer(not artist) in Pond5. they are bored and wanna feel edgy. sometime i think these agency people as a freeloader that live of of artist hardwork.

VideoBlocks / Re: Storyblocks - any signs of life?
« on: May 17, 2019, 18:03 »
Remember in the early time Videoblock with 100% commission the return is high and then by time more and more contributors joining in, $ return starting to decline.

I think same thing will happen with Member Library (revenue pool system). Last year around October they invited the first batch of contributor in the program and these 1st batch enjoying decent return, last month Storyblock started the second batch of inviting more contributor into the program.

Guess what... one of the contributor in the Member Library told me the $ return now goes down by half of what it used to be.

I'm certain people will pull out their port eventually, the concept are not sustainable.

General Stock Discussion / Re: 1.22$ clip earning at Pond5
« on: May 04, 2019, 20:59 »
A 30$ clip earned me today
1.22$ at pond5
How is this possible?

From LLP sale?

I received lowest ever LLP sales $ today, straight away went to my Preferences and option-out Limited License Program.

Pond5 / Re: No (exclusive) worries!
« on: May 02, 2019, 23:29 »
Prices are higher on p5 now because non exclusives adjust the price to cover up the missing 10%.

well done p5.

and Pond5 making big mistake.

September was a 12month high for me, then October topping it with another 12 month high - wow.

I feel that November will be a start of bearish month. I just hope it will not be a complete nosedive >.<

Pond5 and SS at 12month high. Adobe 50% more than August, in term of $ Adobe not even half of what I get from Pond5/SS.
