Frequently Asked Questions
Once you join Wildstock and are ready to start selling your media, uploading is fast and easy. You may drag and drop your items into the uploading window, or select items from your computer's finder. With each item, please fill out the required information (name, price, give back %, location) and click save. This information is saved and can always be edited at a later date in your "Uploads" section. When the item(s) is finished uploading to our server, you will notice the Green "Done" button is ready to click, and voila. You will receive an email after your item has been approved and is live on our website.
We accept a vast majority of formats for digital still photography. We use very high quality conversion services for thumbnails, watermarks, etc. If for some reason your item did not upload properly or was rejected, please contact us and we will access your situation ASAP.
We accept a huge variety of video clips. Due to the nature of the internet and the rapidly evolving field of motion and video, we try to be as accommodating as possible while working within the confines of the internet's boundries. We foresee this list evolving over time, and please reach out with any questions, ideas, or concerns. We highly recommend the following: Frame Rates: 23.98, 24, 25, 29.97, 30, 50, 59.94, 60 Format: .mov, .mp4, .mpg Resolution: 4K (4096x2160, 4096×2304, 4000×2160, 3840×2160, 3996×2160, 4800×2700), 2K/2.5K (2048×1080, 2400×1350, 2432×1366, 2702×1520, 2704×1520), HD (1920x1080, 1280×720, 1440×1080, 1888×1062, 1920×1088) Codecs: ProRes, DVCpro, H.264 (we accept others, but due to the nature of the internet and the constantly shifting technical hurdles, these are the codecs we recommend. Please contact us with any questions or concerns.)
This decision is entirely up to you. As a default setting, you will automatically receive 50% earnings per transaction for every sale you make. 10% will automatically go back into our Give Back Fund. We give you the option to tip this scale. You can give back anywhere from 10%-60% of each sale you make (in increments of 10). The more you give back, the less you will make - and maybe that is not an option for you. But we like the idea of giving artists the power to control this percentage.
To keep our gears turning and machines running, we take a flat fee of 40% per item sold. This number will never change.
This decision is entirely up to you. However, we do offer up suggestions - and we want to keep your work competitive with similar content that is out there. Please feel free to contact us at anytime with more questions regarding this. You may also visit our section on Pricing in the FAQ as well for a more detailed account of how this all works... Here is a breakdown of the pricing we suggest: Stills (*note, the numbers we define categories with are referring to the larger or the two aspect ratio numbers of your image) : SMALL (1k-2k, $1-10), MEDIUM (2k-4k, $10-30), LARGE (4k +, $30 +) Motion: HD (720 or 1080, $49-$119) 4K (UHD, 5K, etc., $119 +) Please note, these are only suggestions. You may have an incredible photograph that would fit in the 'small' size, but it's inspirational beyond belief... These suggestions are solely that, and only pertain to aspect ratio. Every visual is unique and should be priced accordingly.
