Microstock Agency Pricing Comparison

The comparison chart below provides accurate information on what each agency offers, as well as how much they charge for the service. 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. Some of this is due to differences in currency exchange rates. If the agency decides to tie their pricing in to fluctuating currency rates, then you may find the price is a little different every time you buy from them. The vast majority don’t do this though, with most agencies offering a set price based on the US dollar. That is what we have tried to base our sample pricing on in the chart below.
