Basic Account Set Up & Maintenance


How do I sign up as a contributor?
If you are an individual, click the ‘sign up’ link on the top bar on the Bigstock Home Page and our super simple sign-up window will open!

Is there a minimum age for contributors?
Per the Bigstock Terms of Service you may only sign up as a contributor to Bigstock if you are of legal age to sign a binding contract in the United States of America (Age 18). No one, not your parents or anyone else, is allowed to sign up on your behalf, but come back to Bigstock when you turn 18!

Can I register for a contributor account as a business?
If you are a business or partnership, Contact Us before you register so we can ensure your account is set-up properly with the correct documentation.

Can I share an account with someone else?
No. Under no circumstance do we allow contributors to open more than one account, share an account with other individuals, or share content between accounts. If you are found to have more than one account or have shared your account and/or content, you risk immediate and final termination of your account from Bigstock.

Can I open a second account?
No. Under no circumstance do we allow contributors to open more than one account, share an account with other individuals, or share content between accounts. If you are found to have more than one account or have shared your account and/or content, you risk immediate and final termination of your account from Bigstock.

Can I sign up under any name?
No. Your First and Last Name must be your legal name as you are the author and owner of copyright of the content you plan to submit.


What’s a Profile Name? Is it my real name?
This is the “Copyright” name that will accompany your content. As a contributor, we highly recommend that you set this up before you upload your images. This can be your real name or any name you choose, but keep in mind that our customers will see it. You may change your Profile Name at anytime from the main page under My Account.  

I need help filling out the registration page...
Simply enter your First and Last Name, Email Address, and enter a Password.
Your First and Last Name must be your legal name as you are the author and owner of copyright of the content you plan to submit. This name will never be visible to customers or other contributors.
The Email Address you enter should be for correspondence – it is how we can contact you if there is an issue with your content or commissions.
Choose a Password that will be required in order for you to log in to your Bigstock Account.

How do I change my basic account information?
You may update your Full Name, Email Address, Profile Name, and Password at anytime from the main page under My Account.  

How do I change the address in my account?
Your address cannot be changed from the My Account page. You will need to submit a new Tax Profile , and subsequently a new Tax Form with your new address. See specific details under the Earnings heading here in our Help Center.

I forgot my password...Can I re-set it?
If you have forgotten your Password, don’t worry, you can re-set it by clicking on the Forgot your password?  link in the Log In window. This will prompt you to enter your email address that we have on file for you. A link to re-set your password will be sent immediately. Check your spam folder if you didn’t receive the email.
