Over the last few years we’ve had an increasing number of requests for the ability to buy images as a single image purchase, as well as in bulk using a recurring subscription similar to the other agencies.
To accommodate this demand we're about to launch two new payment methods (in addition to Credits):
Single Image Purchases; Standard licenses for $13.99 and Expanded licenses for $39.99
Subscription Plans; 60 images per month for $49, 120 images per month for $89 and 240 images per month for $166
After working with buyers and sellers across many agencies we’ve created these options to remain competitive with the market, but with the overall goal to increase artist income and sales. We’ll be launching the subscription feature first, followed by the single image purchase option a few or so following.
Your account earnings graph will display how your images are being sold. A Single Image purchase will earn you $4.20 per download for a Standard license and $12.00 per download for an Expanded license. We expect to see a big uptake and volume on the single image purchase from our market research. Subscription purchases will earn you $0.20 per download for a Standard license. There is no Expanded license option for subscriptions.
Prices will shortly be increased for the 25 Credit Expanded License to 30 Credits. This will provide you with a 20% increase in earnings for Expanded License downloads. So if you’re on the 45% rate you’ll earn $13.50 per download, up from $11.25.
Note: Both of these payment options are being trialled. If either option fails to increase overall contributor earnings, they will be reviewed.
