about being a photographer in 2018. This 99 cents is really going to make this month easier 😉

Seriously, can I see what the actual sale price was? To whom? What resolution it was? Any other info about the sale at all?

That is a very common commission amount. The commission you receive is 33% of the price paid by the customer. The price paid varies based on the number of images the customer commits to buy. In this case, they likely purchased a 10 download per month subscription with a one year commitment at $29.99 per month.

I recognize if you are getting started, the sub-dollar commissions can be off putting. The way contributors make significant income through micro stock is with volume. You might see one of those 99 cent commissions today, upload a few more images and you may see a few each day. As your portfolio grows, the number of sales increase and at some point you stop noticing the individual sales and measure your success on how much money you are depositing into your bank account each month.

Hi MatHayward,

I am so happy you answered this question. It is useful to me as a contributor and it is useful for the forum. We get lots of questions about prices of stock and payment to contributors. I will use your post as a quote doing my ACP work. Kind regards, JH

Adobe does not hand out information on the buyer as it does not hand out your information.

You need a lot of pictures to make regularly sales and you need to do volume. You need several thousand pictures to get a decent pay out. The good thing is that your old stuff generates revenues without you having to do anything.

My lowest commission was 0.18€ my highest 2.37. I do not (yet) drive a Ferrari.

Thank you Abambo,

I'd be happy to have my info handed out, FTR.

I don't have thousands of images I would put here. Not my venue, I guess.
