IMPORTANT: New Bigstock Payout Schedule

What is changing with the Bigstock Payout Schedule?

Starting May 1, 2018 we will be switching the payment cycle for Bigstock contributors from weekly to monthly.


Why are we making this change?

We’re implementing a new monthly payment schedule to improve the management of contributor earnings on Bigstock. This monthly payout cycle will increase timeliness and security and will align with the standard Shutterstock Monthly payout process.


What happens next?

We will continue to process weekly requests throughout the month of April. The last weekly payment request that we will process should be made by April 30th, 2018 at 11:59 pm ET. Starting on May 1st, 2018 we will process payment requests on a monthly basis. You may continue placing payment requests at your convenience, and they will be processed and issued by the 15th of the following month.


If I submit multiple payment requests in the same month, will they all get processed?

Yes! You will see each transaction listed separately in the Payment Summary area and the Payment History page in your Bigstock account, and you will receive separate payments for each transaction.
