Hello again!

A brief update about where we are at with our video contributor technology.
We have recently launched video pricing tiers. This means you can price all of your videos or just one individual video at another price point.
Existing high quality contributors are grandfathered into the "Premium" tier.
New contributors will start at the "Regular" tier. After uploading 100 approved videos, you can apply for the "Premium" tier.

Here's how the new pricing works:
    "Budget" (HD - $5, no 4K)
    "Regular" (HD - $24.99, 4K - $59)
    "Premium" (HD - $59, 4K - $149)

Some videos, like a time-lapse or a less offered content drone shot or a video shot with a DSLR at 4K higher bitrate has different value than a GoPro video for example.
To solve this problem, you can now reprice existing approved videos by clicking the checkbox next to the desired video, in the "Videos" navigation tab.
 

Regular is priced way too low, in my opinion. So I've applied for Premium tier. hopefully this will be applied without any hassles.
I've uploaded my entire vector and video portfolio last week, let's see if that brings me any sales.

Does yayimages accept editorial images or not?

I ask this because I uploaded hundreds of images there a few weeks ago and ALL commercial images got accepted, but ALL editorial not - strange!

I wrote them two times already and asked them about the editorials. Might be I did something wrong. But I checked editorial images from other users and could not find any differences.
I could understand if they reject some or maybe many of my editorial images, but ALL? (Nearly all images are online on many other agencies.)

I read that yayimages seems not helping much if we ask them. So I ask you to get a faster answer.

Thank you in advance.

That's a small royaltyfor the use of your images as promo material by yaymicro themselves.

So far zero sales, only 2 cents for promotional use by YayImages.

Same here. One month later than my last post, all I got is still 03 cents for this promotional use too.
I started uploading my laterst photos and videos, going back to previous ones.
With these zero sales I can't easily find any incentive to go and upload my past stock for zero return.
I hope some decent sales will make me change my mind soon.
I really liked the good and direct communication with them, which is more than welcome, but that will not pay the rent.

Wow that's sad. Hardly pays for the electricity it took to go look at the site.   :)
