Hurray! I am so so so pleased to see my total balance on Shutterstock to exceed $10,000, which means I reached the highest level of RF earnings per image. Learn more about Shutterstock earning levels at a jump:
After you’ve signed up to Shutterstock and uploaded your first images, you will earn $0.25 from each Subscription Download. You earnings per download grow with an increase in your total lifetime earnings. So, after you have earned $500, you will receive $0.33 per image; $3,000+ will give you £0.36 per download, and the highest level is reached by $10,000, which gives you $0.38 for each sold image:
This difference doesn’t look sagnificant at first, but when selling thousands of images each month, it brings some editional $$$, and bursts motivation anyway:)
There also are “On Demand” downloads, which are sold in a less quantity than Per-Day Subscription, but by a higher price:
Shutterstock recently launched new liscence: Sinlge Image on Demand, hich rates differently depending on your sales level as well:
Anyway, I am really excited to get to the highest level, as when I just signed up I thought it was unreal to reach it:)
In fact it appeared to be much easier than I expected. All you need is some technical skills on drawing or photographing and a clever approach to uploading images:)
