It's very easy to start working with our website:
All of the files you upload will be checked by our inspectors, and once they pass inspection, they'll appear on the website. Starting from that moment, they are available to Buyers, and can start turning a profit!
By accepting the terms and conditions of the Supply Agreement that you sign while creating a Contributor's account, and uploading your files to our website, you warrant the following:
Vector Image Requirements:
A Contributor's Level is determined by the number of a Contributor's files sold on our website. The more sales you have, the higher your Contributor's Level. Hence, the higher your Contributor's Level, the bigger your royalties.
|Level 1||Green||Up to 499 downloads|
|Level 2||Bronze||500 - 4,999 downloads|
|Level 3||Silver||5,000 - 24,999 downloads|
|Level 4||Gold||25,000 - 149,999 downloads|
|Level 5||Platinum||150,000+ downloads|
Note: Each file downloaded using credits counts as 1 download toward your Level. A file purchased via subscription plan counts as one-third download toward your Level; i.e., 3 files downloaded via subscription plan count as 1 download toward your Level.
Our Buyers can use credits to download photos, vector images, and videos uploaded by Contributors. If a file was purchased under a Standard License or Extended License , your royalty rate will depend solely upon your Contributor's Level, as follows:

Royalties for Each File Sold
Note: Royalty calculations are based not on a "standard" value of a file, but on the actual amount paid by a Buyer. If a Buyer gets a discount on the purchase, the royalties received by the Contributor for the file will be based on the amount paid by the Buyer, incorporating the discount, and not the “standard” value of the file.
In the event that Depositphotos is obliged to pay any taxes to third parties for purchase of the File (for example, via an Apple In-App Purchase), the amount of royalties paid to the Contributor will be calculated from the actual amount Depositphotos receives after paying all taxes.
With subscription plans, Buyers can download photos and vector images. If an image was purchased with any of our subscription plans, your royalty rate is fixed and depends upon your Contributor's Level:

Note: Videos cannot be purchased via subscription.
Note: If an image was purchased via a monthly subscription plan, your royalty rate will depend on your Contributor's Level. Royalty calculations are based on the price of the subscription plan and the number of downloads included in it. If a Buyer gets a discount on the purchase, the royalties received by the Contributor for the file will be based on the amount paid by the Buyer, incorporating the discount, and not the “standard” value of the file.
