  1. Hello guys, I just wanna share my short experience as footage contributor in Shutterstock, and asking you a suggestion for future, maybe could help also some new "recruits". I have just started during half of july, uploading footages of my usual topics (nature, vegetables, food, growing food, organic food and sustainability). It seems market is not really interesting in it. I sold just 1 clip for 7 dollars (and it was a clip not of my topic: an istitutional building) on a total of 200 clips uploaded, some 4K, some slowmo, timelapse, drone footage. So, for now the balance is not so good, just considering the time spent uploading clips. At this point, I wonder if I should go on or stop. Do you think I'm doing something wrong? Footage are not interesting at all? Or I need to be patient and going on uploading? Thanks everyone for support, suggestions and idea 😎 p.s. don't tell anybody, but I have uploaded same clips also on AS, IS, Pond5... zero money for now 😁 Thanks, and take care My portfolio
  2. This is an abusive mode to pay contributors. It is not correct. In the last few months, I received a $ 0.33 cents on a 4K video. Which seems like an abusive way to use our work, and get paid the way they want us to. I WANT TO DELETE MY ACCOUNT FROM SHUTTERSTOCK!!! WHERE I CAN FIND THIS OPTION IN MY ACCOUNT? I don't have the possibilities to withdraw my portfolio back, this is the reason to delete my account from Shutterstock. PLEASE HELP TO DO THIS!
  3. With the new earning structure even if you reach 40% with the highest level on subscription plans you wont make more than 20 cents, this is ridiculous they made a pay cut of 60%. They sell a picture on subscription plans for 50 cents on average if the buyer use all his subscription. Dont just stay there and take it, all together we can do something, Opt out of sales https://www.shutterstock.com/contributorsupport/articles/kbat02/How-do-I-deactivatedelete-my-contributor-account?l=en_US&fs=RelatedArticle I just did it myself.
  4. Yesterday they mailed us new payment structure and after that they told us that earnings will not be less then 10cents but A Refrall earning is 4cent Which mean you will earn more money by just referral and not by Shoot, Edit and upload. So why the hell we will work for 10cent when we can earn 4cent just by referring a new contributor. Or will they also remove or reduce this Refrall earnings? What is your opinion on this.....
  5. Since 1 and half year i created this account but some how i dont get any single image buyer as i am doing something wrong or something else i have to do to generate income from Shutterstock. I got advice that if you take picture and submit to contribution shutterstock you will get paid for every pic which has been selected. Please guide me if some experts in this forum. I am traveller and fond of taking extra ordinary pics from my Iphone which worth of million dollars in coming year so i need support on my copyright pics if you or anyone who you know who can support me then Thanks in advance for your gentlemen gesture DharamNeeL https://www.shutterstock.com/g/DharamNeel?rid=230683507&utm_medium=email&utm_source=ctrbreferral-link

  7. Hi guys! Starting from 12/21/2019 (every day) I noticed that Earnings Summary by dates and Latest downloads sections showing wrong revenue and different download counts. For example if Latest downloads shows 5 downloads, Earnings Summary shows 4 downloads only It means that Shutterstock lost 1 image in my daily earnings for 12/21/2019 On the further days there is difference from 1 to 6 images which wasn't taking into account. Today difference is: Latest downloads - 31, Earnings Summary - 23 Does anyone noticed this bug?

  21. Dear all Contributors i have 2000 images in ss but only 1 sale in per day why because other contributor more than sale in day why its not ready for me i am hard worker but not give good response. see my portfolio an please give me suggestion
  22. Hi Everyone, I need your suggestion, over the last year, I have seen that my Photo Sell has been drastically reduced. I have send so much time and effort to create my portfolio since 2011. I have noticed during the entire period of 2014 and 2015 I used to earn at least $ 300 and my portfolio size was about only 1500 images. However, during this year my sell has been dropped to about $200 even though portfolio size has been about 2.3 k. So far, used to work for Stock Photography as a part time contributor but thought of switching to full time since I am finding it difficult to maintain my new job. Just about $1000 pm earning would be enough for my living. My question is, is this good idea to try for SS as full time or I should go ahead and try to find other jobs. Please advise, here is my portfolio link. https://www.shutterstock.com/g/tusharkoley Regards, Tushar
