Anyone sell footage to stock sites here?

Hey there, I started using drones a few months ago and created a sample video for black box, and they liked it. I have a few questions:

Does anyone else here sell videos they’ve made?
Where do you sell them?
Which website do you recommend for beginners who want to sell their videos online?


Yes I do sell the videos at popular platforms including Shutterstock, Adobe Stock, and Pond5. For beginners, I recommend starting with Shutterstock due to its user-friendly interface and wide reach.

Blackbox. global is the easiest way. They are a middleman that posts it on several sites and you can also split credit/compensation with other people like an editor or metadata writer.

I’ve used it for 2-3 years and it’s been good for me. They pay once a month through PayPal.

Here is a video that gives an overview

That is exciting! Congratulations on Black Box enjoying your video. Many drone pilots resell video. Stock websites such as Shutterstock and Drone Stock are popular. Pond5 provides nice possibilities for novices and allows you to establish your own rates. Good luck!

If you go in with the mindset to make a lot of money and you dive towards selling stock footage, you might want to do some re-evaluation of life.
