How much does stock video cost?

The cost of stock video - how much should you pay?

Over the last couple of years the supply of stock footage has increased, resulting in a dramatic change in pricing. We created VReel with the mission to democratise drone footage and make it available to small businesses and independent creators. At the same time, making sure that our contributors earn a fair amount for their hard work. Something we have achieved.

But no matter how unique we are in our model, there are always going to be other stock platforms out there. Many of them offer a wide variety of all kinds of stock – images, video, after effects and music, but not all are like us, niched on what they know best.

One of the most searched terms together with the name of most stock platforms is “pricing”. To make your life easier when it comes to choosing a platform for your stock, we have put together a summary of the pricing from the most known platforms out there.
