For me P5 is dead from the beginnig of 2019. Just a few sales. On the other hand SS "took" P5's place. Last year it was a different story.

3 months dead for me, I do not know why.
I have many views and few sales.
SS has sold much more video.
It's sad because I had 3 excellent years in POND5.

Did you Know or does anyone Know that SS makes More Money from Newbies that don't have a clue than seasoned Pros. thats why the quality level has gone done and the search is Like it is.. it doesn't matter. Paying 38 cents is Much worse than Paying 25 Cents. Times a Million. A Large Birdie told me.

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.

Been selling on Pond5 for over 10 years, do this full time for a living, whatever they're done they've really screwed things up. Sales tanked since the utterly stupid exclusivity program. Such a shame

The same for me. Two completed months without Pond 5 sales, only views. At the same time at Shutterstock i get monthly video sales. Chronologically, it coincides with the time I started uploading to Pond 5 exclusive also, put i paused exclusive uploads there, as i also saw no sales. I used to earn more in Pond 5 than Shutterstock in videos (even had enhanced video sales in Pond 5, giving me good return) but this is now reversed, only leaning towards Shutterstock.

That's exactly what I mean.
Many views and very few sales.
Since they made the changes of exclusivity and non-exclusivity (40%)

Pond5 video has nowhere near the turnover of SS. I sell 2 videos on SS to 1 on P5, plus P5 has too many dead periods.

My Pond5 sales have tanked 60% since the exclusivity announcement. Something definately has changed. SS is also much slower than normal in video. Have we reached critical mass?  :(

But if "seasoned pros" generate a lot more sales than newbies, wouldn't that outweigh the payout difference?
