Dear Edward Olive,

We're writing to inform you that from today, Picfairs FTP service will only be available to Picfair Plus subscribers.

We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause. Maintaining Picfairs FTP service requires considerable technical resource and cost, and we have taken the decision that we can no longer offer the service for free.

You are of course welcome to continue uploading through Picfairs web uploader.

Regards,
Team Picfair



I thought Picfair's whole principle was trying to be fair to contributors. That's why you are called Picfair from picture and fair.

I know of no other stock agency that tries to charge contributors money just to use an ftp upload.

It sounds like a really bad way to develop contributor trust.

You will have seen how shutterstock shot themselves in the foot this month ruining their online reputation by doing what they did to contributors.

I have never had to pay just to be in an agency. Surely you can make enough money out of commissions without trying to charge me fees too?

How much does it actually cost you for me to upload to an ftp instead of an online web server

You can get file zilla for free. It works fine. I use it every day.

Very disappointing behaviour by you.

And this comes after you tried to make me invest in your company last year by giving you money too.

Poor you... what are you complaining about actually? Crying that Picfair is giving you 100% commission, they take 0% since COVID, and you call that unfair? Normally they take 20% and 80% for the free plan, and you compare them to Shutterstock?

I never had sales with them (and I actually only had 1800 images there), but since 21st of december 2020, I made 5 sales. Since they give great comission and I do see sales with such a low number of images, I am giving them a try and subscribed for 1 year. Will let you know of the results, but I don't see Picfair as an agency. More like a personnal website and they promote your images on their site as a plus.

We'll see how it goes, I will upload my full portfolio and see if I get better results, I don't hope for much but I like giving a fair agency a chance.
