Please note with pricing, that you may end up seeing a slightly different price on the microstock agency itself. Why is this?
Each agency handles things differently, but some of them will provide localised pricing. Eg: a buyer in Europe may be charged a different amount to a buyer in America or Australia.
We have tried to present prices based on the US dollar.
