Contemporary Dave Posted May 27, 2020 Share Posted May 27, 2020 If you haven't heard, it's all kicked off over at Shutterstock. They've announced a new earnings structure, which can be seen here: https://www.shutterstock.com/blog/contributor-earnings-update To say it has gone down badly is the understatement of the century. Your percentage of earnings is now calculated on the number of downloads you have in a calendar year. It then gets worse. At the beginning of each and every year thereafter, ALL contributors are 'reset' to the lowest level of earnings, which is 15%. It's believed that your images will now sell for as little as 10 cents. After Alamy got acquired by the PA Media Group recently, let's just hope something similar doesn't happen here. But alas, I think it will only be a matter of time when changes will be made here.
