  1. Looks like it's time to say goodbye to Shutterstock. I stopped uploading any vectors after the last shutterstock royalties "updates". But kept videos, as they still had good prices. Last time I have more and more videos sold for $0.25 and today is a new record: 12 videos sold for 25 cents each. It is insane! The topic is created for all of those who planned to open the portfolio on SS or thought on starting upload videos. Think twice. You'll never get your clips payed off if it sold for 25 cents. As for me, I'm closing uploads for SS.
  2. Ok, here is the thing: I made a video with some flying 3D hearts in red circles. This symbol is quite popular Like icon. And there are tones of them on the shutterstock. I made it a bit more detailed with some gradients and shadows. But now it suddenly infringes intellectual property rights. I've never heard that FB or instagram or Twitter etc. had exceptional rights on a heart shape.🙄 Any thoughts on how to overcome the rejection? Should we now add a release on every primitive shape we use in our artworks?
  3. None of my content, that was approved from 04/16/2021 has not appeared in the portfolio.
  4. Last June I've earned 500$ from Shutterstock, this June - 136$. Hm, wondering why am I not posting new artworks anymore? =DDD
  5. During the last month most of my footages selling for 0.34$. Incomes decreased twice with the new rules. Which put Shutterstock on the third place by incomes. It is no longer the best selling stock at least for videomakers. There is no way to avoid this low prices, only by deleting your work. As for me, I wouldn't delete my old works, but I don't see any point to do anything new for shutterstock. It will take forever to pay off every new video.
  6. Lucky you) And all my new sales during the day are 0.10 - 0.14 after the system updated =] (now I'm on level 4, and I earned $0.36 per subscriptions before)
  7. That's weird. No matter what level are you, looks like prices are the same. I have same earnings as author, but I am level 3. And if it just a luck of different sales, how much are we gonna earn during January-March, if highest level authors now still have incomes for 0.1 per image?
  8. Hi guys. Me and my referral artist suddenly noticed, that number of his sales doesn't match with my reffered downloads statistic. It continues for monthes already. 8\1\18 he sold 14 imgs, I have 11 referrals 8\2\18 8 - 8 8\3\18 9 - 7 8\4\18 1 - 1 8\2\18 4 - 2 And so on. Who has the same problem? And I am just wondering how many benefits loose those, who has a lot of referrals... This statistic is hard to check, but possible. But now I am just wondering what if we loose our sales in the same way, with no chance to find out?..
  9. Hello, contributors! Need your advise. Demands, enhanced and singles fully dissapeard from sales this month. For whole month I have only 3 demands. So horrible statistic I didn't have for more then a year (I started to sale less then two years ago, so last time I had such bad sales for demands and other in a very beggining of my path). That is very unusual statistics for my portfolio. So the questions are: did you ever have big changes in quantity of sales for some month? Is it normal at all?(I don't have any hollidays themes, so the calendar might not work. I had 16 month of stability an
  10. April wasn't bad. But May shows itself worth. No demands, no enchansed for whole first week. It wasn't so bad since I reached my first hundred on the stock. I am worrying =(
