Just found instructions on MicroStkGrp website...

- Go to your contributor account page
- In the right top corner go into the dropdown menu under your contributor Name and select Account Settings
- From here you can enable/disable the License Options for images and videos by selecting the checkmark Yes/No next to image sales and footage sales. Selecting No will obviously disable the portfolio. From what I have noticed is that this will take a few days so keep that in mind.

aaaand we are OFF.

Funnily enough I took a rare trip to my local supermarket tonight, and noticed my bestselling wheat vector all over S'bury's cereal packs, and also seen another of mine on Asda biscuits. 

Big clients such as these will now no longer find them on here. Your loss ShStock.

Thankyou and goodnight.

Is the new structure in place? I just had a 0.38 download.

same to me, two 0.33 downloads, seems the new system is not online yet. Not sure they will revise these to 0.1 later or not.

Same here.

I wonder if there will be corrections down the road.

Same here, still old payment scheme. I guess it will start with Eastern Standard time.

The moment you got your first download counts probably still under 31.05.2020. The new month comes in USA later than the other countries in the east.

The sale is recorded in June. I'm in California the sale came after it was June in NY.

My guess is that sometime after the techs report to work in the morning they will flip the switch.

Good there? Have a sale?

I hope that everything will be fine with Shutterstock!

Yay...
They're extremely small, in size... and in spirit...
With them, if you are lucky you will earn in 2 years what you earn in one day on Shutterstock (even with the new SS tariff).
After I closed my account with them they still owe me money, which they never paid, and probably never will.

But, because there is a "but", the management of the company changed a few months ago. This could be a sign of some positive changes, but I still have serious doubts...

Won't get into the subject matter, however at a closer inspection...

I'm hoping that I'll get one more decently priced video sale in the next few hours before they flip that switch. After that, I'll deactivate my video port.

It’s been a rough couple days.  This news then I discover my sprinkler system needs repair and it’s in the 90s in Utah.  And then there’s this god damn pandemic.

A swarm of grasshoppers is scheduled for thursday.

We need more money. How to make money? Rise price, sell more or cut the costs? We do the easiest - CUT THE SUPPLY COSTS! No we will not cut our wages and expenses. We need brand new cars and condos. Some airplane, chopper and yacht would be fine to add to our collection.

It smells like some "MANAGER" come to idea he can make money with cutting supply line. I.E. this idea is equal to cutting the branch on which you are sitting. I have some management skills and experience in running a company and I know that.

Most hard working contributors are furious with this new earnings plan and will disable their ports.

Other thing is that many of contributors have experienced very similar "exciting news" from ISP and other agencies which are now history.

Dear SS management team this is last drop in full glass of incompetence to sell! Instead of working hard on how to make more sales you are taking from hard working contributors.

Bad move which will have catastrophic consequences on SS shares and business in general.

All you can expect is to get some acquisition offer from Getty Images soon! And after that Shutterstock will be closed because big shark wants so.

Most of people know my 2 cents which says:

UNSUSTAINABLE!

Be safe all of you!

P.S. The biggest mistake on Shutterstock was that to go public.
