 YAY is completely undercutting the market and are now giving some the worst commissions ever for small images, 13 cents. I am wondering if they can get away with this one.

I would vote for "I am on YAY and I am going to wait and see what happens before deciding if it is a good or bad idea".  If they get a big sales volume and my earnings increase a lot, it wont be so bad.  If they have low volume low commission sales that don't improve my earnings, I'll have to decide if it's still worth using them.

I'm not a big fan of their new idea, but they seem to be a lot more willing to create a fair deal for contributors than many other agencies.
Before I drop them due to that new scheme I should definitely drop 123RF and Bigstock due to their recent changes (and FT due to their general attitude towards contributors). And for all of those I haven't decided yet...

It's spring, and time for another "you'll make it up on volume" game.     It's like Charlie Brown and the football.


The photographer hopes his images make a slow trickle of money, for years.  The people who operate an  agency like YAY need to make a bunch of money next month.   Cross purposes.
