What's a Photo License?
Image licenses are what's purchased by buyers in order to use your photos. You do not need to purchase a license in order to sell your photos. Your license revenue share (the percentage you receive revenue that you get when you sell an image license) remains the same regardless of whether you sell a photo through EyeEm Market or via one of our distribution partners’ sites (e.g. Getty.)

The amount a photo sells for on EyeEm Market, depends on the licenses purchased and which pricing option is chosen: Essential or Premium. Below are the available Licenses:
- Standard License
- Extended License
These prices can also change if customers are looking to purchase one of our photo packs. Want to know more about the specifics of our licenses, or interested in becoming a buyer? Check out our dedicated Licenses page here: https://www.eyeem.com/market/pricing
What Happened to the old pricing system?
We've launched a new and easy to grasp pricing structure, our goal being to make it easier for our customers to buy images for their everyday visual needs, as well as premium brand campaigns.
What's the Difference between EyeEm Market pricing and Partner pricing?
Photos sold through Partner Pricing can vary in price according to the partner’s own set pricing systems. There are a number of ways that buyers can purchase photos on partner sites, such as Getty Images.
The price advertised on these sites often applies for first time buyers or single purchases only. Some clients will buy your images through subscriptions or packages, for example, they download a high volume of images in one go which leads to significant discounts on price per image. This may be why your revenue is lower than expected.
Are my photos exclusive to EyeEm Market?
Every image on Market is non-exclusive, so you can continue using them as you wish. Plus: You’ll get paid for every photo you sell, each time it sells, and you’ll always stay the copyright holder.
