Commissions

We want to support those who support us. SkyStock offers a leading base rate of 50% commission. Some of our contributors are on 80% commission!

BONUS RATE: 75% base rate by signing up and having 20 approved photos by 30th of June 2018.

Compare us to our competitors where you can make as little at $0.25 for a sale on ShutterStock. We value our contributors and believe they should be fairly rewarded.

Payments are made monthly by PayPal. Ensure that your sign up email address matches your PayPal account. If it does not and you are not receiving commissions please contact us to recitfy.

How to get a higher commission rate:

  • Base rate: 50%
  • 20 approved photos: 55% and able to receive job requests.
  • 50 approved photos: 60%
  • 100 approved photos: 65%
  • 500 approved photos: 70%
  • 1,000 approved photos: 75%
  • Trained & licensed operator: +5%*
  • SkyStock link on your website: +5%**
  • Entering SkyStock Competitions: Up to 80%

You keep the higher commission rate by continually contributing. Inactive accounts with less than 20 approved uploads per year will be reduced to a 30% commission rate. Commission rates are subject to change, and any changes will be published on this page.

Maximum commission rate is 80%. While we would love to give our contributors a bigger cut of a sale, we must set the limit at 80% to help cover our costs.

*Email [email protected] evidence of your certification and training completed. Not valid with current bonus rate promotion.

**Put a SkyStock link directly on your website with our logo to receive the bonus. See this example. We can also provide an exclusive discount code for your clients.

We are a new website and while we like to support our operators with high commission rates, we are also trying to bring in users to the site to buy photos. Discounts can lead to the final amount you receive being less than expected. For example if a user purchases 3 photos they receive 10% off. So your photo at $139.00, now actually sold for $125.10 and you would receive $62.55 (at 50% commission level). Potentially though you may have sold 2 or 3 photos in the one transaction, increasing your total revenue.
