  1. I closed down my account here at SS several weeks ago. As a comparison, one of my editorial images that used to be here at SS, sold this morning on Dreamstime for $49. My commission is $12.25 for the single image. It probably would have been 10 cents here at SS.
  2. And that is exactly why I closed down my account of 12 years. It was a nice relationship for many years. But, as soon as the SS corporate execs figured out they had the control, they decided to rape their creative providers. Total Greed!
  3. I went to the link in your post as closed my account. Will see if it works.... time will tell.
  4. The stock image/video market has become over glutted with content... more substandard amateur submissions now than the superior quality content which was once dominated by the pros. Simple math of supply & demand. A little history... prior to digital, we used to get $200 for a single medium format color negative or color transparency image represented by reputable film stock agencies (including Getty)... $400 to $800 for 30 second film to tape video clips. But those days are history. When imagery went digital, all the stock agencies including SS & IS initially were very, very picky an
  5. I went to "Contributor Support Center": https://submit.shutterstock.com/contact Click on the sub-heading "Account Changes" the first item in the left hand column. Then fill out the form with your detailed instructions and submit. Be sure to state clearly that you want your minimum payout reduced to $1.00, you want to be paid your total contributor balance due, and want to deactivate and permanently close your SS account. I have received my final payout which was only a few dollars, my finles have been deactivated, but they have yet to close my contributor account... which they c
  6. I do mean that... That is the form I submitted. So the form will not let you write anything in the box that says "Describe Issue"?
  7. I went to "Contributor Support Center": https://submit.shutterstock.com/contact Click on the sub-heading "Account Changes" the first item in the left hand column. Then fill out the form with your instructions and submit. Be sure to state clearly that this is your 5th attempt to receive your payout and close your account.
  8. SS Support has responded to my 2nd request to close my account. They have reduced my minimum payout to $1 so that I can received my final payout within the next 30 days. After the final payout, I can then go to "My Account" settings and delete my SS account.
  9. I just contacted support and made my 2nd request within the past 30 days to issue my final payout and close my account. We'll see if they respond to this 2nd request.
  10. Translation per Google: "The business is simple the less I pay the more I earn, the next step is to charge the authors for being able to show their photos." ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Agreed. That is where this thing is going.
  11. Yes my fellow contributors around the globe, we are working deep in the coal mines for PaPa Shutterstock. They are reading our grievances here and laughing. I have tried to remove my account but have received no response from PaPa Shutterstock.
  12. I just sent instruction to contributor support to close out my account and send me what paltry balance is due. It was a good run here for the past 12 years but the greed at the top of this food chain has ruined it for everyone. So long fellow contributors. I think the video & image stock business model is disintegrating everywhere.
