People here waiting for the new scheme to take effect... why? Why haven't you disabled your portfolio alredy, nothing good will follow of this.

Maybe because at this point in time, some people simply cant afford to lose hundreds or thousands of dollars just to make a point...

They better start preparing to be able to afford it cause the loss coming, slowly and painfully.

And the consequences of SS reduced royalties can be expected to be matched by competition in future for sure.

When people switch off their ports SS seems also to completely delete assets from their portfolio manager. I switched off my video port and noticed through the day (yesterday) items being deleted from my video portfolio...until zero left in my video portfolio

No they are still on the servers if you turn on sales they will come back over 72 hours

Hopefully they're saving you the trouble of having to do it yourself.

I do hear and understand that. It was a tough decision, I have earned about $100,000 Shutterstock (which have probably earned THEM half a million). But the line has to be drawn somewhere, and now they went too far, I had to stand behind my principles.

Secondhand news is that the new structure goes live at noon, eastern time. Take with a grain of salt...

Nobody sensible is going to want to voluntarily throw away a few hundred or thousand dollars with 5 days notice.  Most people will keep the plan until they've sorted out an alternative.

Id venture the low earners are the people who could most likely afford to disable stuff as its a small percentage of their income.

I also suspect lots will just accept SS has become just another mid-grade agency like IS and leave the profile.

SS would no doubt have modelled this.

I had another subscription sale at 14:30 GMT for $0.33.

Just read "The new royalty structure will go live this afternoon, New York time." Kate Shutterstock.
