31 Mar 2010 This Month in Microstock – March 2010
Some interesting developments in the microstock market this month.
Amos Struck and I launched Microstock Charts, a free service for microstock contributors to track and (eventually) benchmark their earnings and other metrics. Amos later launched a handy news aggregator service called Microstock News, this time partnering with everyone’s favorite Italian microstock blogger, Roberto Marinello, of mystockphoto.org.

Vivozoom Boosted Affiliate Program
The Vivozoom affiliate program commission increased from 5% to 15%, with recurring commissions for 1 year.
Fotolia Selling Free Photos
Fotolia added payment options to their free photo website PhotoXpress. Paying customers get higher download quotas for the free image collection, but also limited downloads of the “Premium Collection” – images from Fotolia. Subscription prices are slightly cheaper at PhotoXpress than at Fotolia.
