Shouldn't we be given the choice to opt out of these type of peanuts fee sales? As I try to market images directly to clients, I can only see these sales damaging my chances of making a decent fee in the long run.


How long before we're paying them to publish our images.

I had six IQ sales last month (one I notice has just been refunded for reasons unknown). The low fees are disconcerting to say the least given the usage rights granted. However, I'm not sure I would want to opt out of any sales opportunities in this super competitive market.


On the plus side, one of the IQ sales was for $100, which means it passed my personal PQC (Price Quality Control).
