Bigstock, Shutterstock's sister agency, has just released their subscription prices that are more than competitive with other stock photo agencies subscriptions. This news comes as a surprise as Bigstock has always been a credit only stock photo agency, an option to Shutterstocks subscription only purchasing option.
Competition has more than likely drawn Bigstock to the subscription payment option. Their credit payment option had stock photo buyers spending anywhere from .99 cents to $3.99 USD on one stock photo. The subscription option introcuded by Bigstock cuts the price of a stock photo by 1/3, without a high investment each month to gain .33 cent images.
For as little as $69 USD per month, a stock photo buyer can download 5 images per day and 150 images per month! If you require more photos per day or month, Bigstock has over 8 subscription options to choose from with savings at each level. The lowest price for a stock photo is .15 cents per image! Now that is big savings!
Shutterstock just released more payment options for their stock photo buyers. The On-Demand subscription is similar to the credit buying option offered at their sister company Bigstock but with a few tweeks. Now that Bigstock has released subscription options, both stock photo agencies are competitive with other agencies.
Bigstock offers over 13 million royalty-free photographs and illustrations from talented photographers and artists around the globe. After being acquired by Shutterstock in 2009 and unveiling their new look in 2010, Bigstock continues to update its images daily, stay ahead of the trends in stock photos and work with their partnering company to be one of the leading providers of stock photos, images, illustrations and vectors. This new move to subscriptions does make Bigstock cheaper than Shutterstock and as competitive as other stock photo agencies.
