Stock photo agency subscriptions for multiple users fall under the term corporate subscription or multi-seat license. When you buy a subscription or credits, account log-ins and passwords can not be shared. For companies that have multiple users and require an account for stock photo buying, accounts can be created where large subscriptions are purchased and multiple users are assigned an account and share that subscription. Here are a few of the best deals and easiest formats for multi-users sharing one subscription or credit package.
iStockphoto subscriptions for corporations
The average price to add an additional user to a subscription account is $12 USD per user PER MONTH. iStockphoto subscriptions start at 3 months so expect to pay $36 USD for each additional user. iStockphoto works off a credit system and the multi-user accounts allow for credit transfers. The buyer decides how many users they wish to add with the minimum being 5 users. The iStockphoto corporate account is worth reviewing.
Fotolia Corporate Subscription
Fotolia opened their corporate user account in 2008. Expect to pay a greater percentage on your subscription with an option of 3 or unlimited users on the account. There is a 21% increase for 3 users and 33% increase for unlimited users on the price of a subscription. Fotolia has created an interesting and cost effective multi-user account structure.
123rf Corporate Stockphoto Intranet
123rf has a Corporate Stockphoto Intranet that can be set up for free when a corporate user purchases a minimum of 1000 credits and requests this service. There is no limit on the number of users and credits can be transferred between users. It is for free now. At the minimum buy in images are still cheap at 83 cents a credit.
Other stock photo agencies sell multi-seat licenses that can be purchased with credits. It is difficult to determine the price as credit prices are contingent on the amount of credits purchased. When researching each stock agency, check their multi-seat license pricing or email the stock photo agency to inquire about their rates for multiple users.
