  1. ...not waiting ...pulling off my portfolio ;O)
  2. same same .... since the 24th of June I only sell videos through subscriptions ....
  3. Yes, that is the newst twist .... all my sales since some time are only subscription/pack sales with the same earnings you mentioned above ...
  4. Interesting, ...I deactivated my account the 1st of June to set a sign against the new policy (I also send messages to shutterstock and of cours just got this paste and copy sh...t answers, ...when I told them this copy and paste answers are diserespectful, no answers at all anymore. But I did not expect anything else to be honest) . My sales with other agencies went up. In the middle of June I activated it again and had some good sales on shutterstock, but sales with others went down. Ok, it is obviously not a coincident ;O) Why did I activated my account again, ...simply I wanted to find out what happens and with my sales I was at 25%, stock footage is a big part of my icome too! So I thought, ok, I will not upload any new footage, but be oportunistic and take advantage and cash as much as I can until the end of this year. Now, .... most of my sales are package/subscriptiomn sales now... earning 5-7U$ per clip. So Shutterstock is obviously running down the whole market. It will collapse as it makes no sense for contributers anymore to produce stock footage. My plan, to stay with shutterstock until the end of the year is not working out. So thanks shutterstock for the good times we had in the past, but killing your cash cows is not a smart move. I really thought all the protests and comments ...and contributors dectivating their portfolio wakes you up, but obviously you don't care at all about what we have to say. So before I got starved to death by your greed, I move on and let you wake up alone.
  5. stop complaining and take off your poertfolio .... i earned 35000 in all the years and now pulled my portfolio off .... action is maybe helping ...complaining does not!
  6. well and there is always a constant demand, ...not depending on actualities so much, ...but they don't care, ...it is like fast food .... don't expect personal treatment ;O)
  7. soory for the typos .... was kind of excited ;O) ...yes, you are right and I will most likely disable my portfolio the 1st of June ... even I am "only" loosing 5% for this year ....
  8. well, selling 100 clips per month is a lot and I never sold that much .... and I would be rich ;O) That is not the case and my portfolio is very specific .... but an all time seller ...some times more, sometimes less, but kind of stable ... next month I would loose 5% per sale, but I think I will take my portfolio off, ...just to give a signal
  9. Thanks, ...but they don't care toloos my portfolio. That is what they ansered on my complaint and announcement to pull off my portfolio ... hI Peter, We hear your concern with the new earnings structure changes. We value your contributions to Shutterstock and understand this is not an easy decision to make. The decision to make these changes was not made lightly and was done with much consideration for all of our contributors. Shutterstock aims to fairly compensate our contributors for the time and talent invested in the production of their work. Given the market has changed significantly since Shutterstock was founded in 2003, we have made changes to better reflect the current market. The adjustments are being made to align with changes we have been seeing in the global market for creative content. They also help to create fair opportunities for all our contributors, and reward performance with greater earnings potential. As the global need for content increases, the volume of content being produced also continues to grow. The increase in supply of content available on the market has resulted in lower prices and free content on some platforms. With this pricing pressure, Shutterstock must also be competitive while continuing to support the production of high-quality content and driving high licensing volumes world-wide. While we have historically paid contributors based on a percentage of the license value along with a fixed-rate for some plans, paying at fixed-rates is no longer aligned with how customers engage with those products. Also, the previous earnings structure was based on inequitable factors, such as lifetime earnings. Starting on June 1st, 2020, we are moving to a percentage based earnings model for all licensing plans. The amount contributors earn from each download is a percentage of the price paid by the customer for that license. Shutterstock aims to provide customers with competitive plans and pricing, while fairly compensating our contributors for the time and talent invested in the production of their work. The new compensation model allows contributors to receive a true percentage share from each download, rewarding content creators for producing quality work that is fresh, relevant and currently in demand by our customers. Your account will always be available to reactivate should you decide to rejoin our contributor community! Rather than closing your account, you can simply turn off licensing in your account settings. Please let us know if you would prefer this option and we will not disable your account at this time. We are certainly sad to see you go. If you have any further queries or concerns, feel free to contact us anytime. Shutterstock team cares for you. Stay healthy, Stay safe! Thanks & Regards, Sangeeta Shutterstock Contributor Care Team

  14. The answer on the following message came via chat in which a also contributor just told me how to cancel my account! Hi there, I am a contributor since 2013 and I have earned more than 34 000 U$ You know what your share was for the time of our cooperation. I am not accepting the new rules, especially the fact every January the accounts are reset and everybody starts with 15% it might sound good regarding YOUR earnings, but is on the costs of your hard working contributors. The argument you want to contributors to submit fresh content, which is hot to day and probably dead by tomorrow. I am submitting mainly underwater stock footage ...high quality content. This is a market which always works, even and especially in times of change. But you are setting the rules and I simply cannot accept them. I never accepted exclusivity deals ...and what just happens is exactly the reason, ...never ever get dependent on one agency! I am selling on pond 5, adobe stocks, naturefootage, framepool and 2 smaller ones, who give by the way a better share than the 65/35 By withdrawing my footage from shutterstock will make me more money with my other partners. Why should I accept 15% ? Why should I kill my own business with other partners? If you are not coming up with a new fresh idea ...a fair share as we agreed on before, ... my portfolio will be taken off the platform by the 1st of June. By the way, I have another complaint active. My experience recently, ...the staff reviewing content is highly incompetent or probably not motivated for reasons you know better than I do. My opinion, you are killing your own business! “Be the change you want to see in the world” here the answer from Steve shutterstock ;O) Hi PeterI'm Stephen and I'm a Shutterstock contributor and expert user.I don't have access to your images, account or your personal data but I am here to help answer your questions.To completely delete your account and all personal information send your request to:Privacy@shutterstock.combest regardsSteve
