How much will I earn as a Bigstock contributor?

Your earnings, per download, are based on the customer’s selection of payment plan and the size of the file that was downloaded. For purchases made using credits, we pay $0.50 USD for each credit spent. For Bigstock Partner sales, contributors receive 30% of the amount received by Bigstock per partner sale. Here is a detailed breakdown of how much you will earn with each type of purchase (all values in USD):

  Credits     Bigstock Partner
Small $0.50 30%
Medium $1.00 30%
Large $2.00 30%
X-Large $3.00 30%
Vector $3.00 30%
Extended License    $25.00 n/a

 

For subscription plans you will earn a royalty every time one of your images is downloaded.

We’ll count any Bigstock download to determine which royalty tier is applied, including credit and subscription downloads.

The more downloads you’ve had in the previous 12 months, the higher your royalty will be.  You can earn up to $0.38 USD per download!

Contributors can see these transactions on the 'Image Earnings' page of their Bigstock account here: http://www.bigstockphoto.com/account/commissions/downloads/.

 * Customers on any of our Partner sites are not allowed to use a Bigstock image for a project that falls under the terms of an Extended License. 

 

 Here are a few answers to frequently asked questions about the tier structure:

  • The 'Number of Downloads in Previous 12 Months' is calculated on the last day of each month.
  • Because our system needs this whole day to process the data, it will only factor in downloads made up until the previous day.
  • Downloads made on the last day of every month are factored into the following month.
  • Changes in royalty tiers happen on the first day of the month.

Should you have any questions please feel free to contact our support team any time.
