NO #05: Shutterstock Contributor

Shutterstock is an American provider of stock photography, stock footage, stock music, and editing tools. It helps users to download royalty images at a free cost.

Shutterstock has been around for over 15 years and has millions of photos. They’ve paid out over $1billion total to their community of contributors.

To sell photos on their platform, you must become a Shutterstock Contributor. A contributor can earn between 20-30% of the price depending on what type of subscription the customer used on the site.

Being such a huge, well-known company can make it hard for beginning photographers to break in. You’re not bound to only sell in Shutterstock’s marketplace, so this may be an excellent second app choice.
