What is Contributor Rank?

At PIXTA, contributor rank rises as the total numbers of sold photos/illustrations increases.
The more files you could sell, the higher rank and royalty you can get.
Contributors could check their own rank at your account page.

*Currently, contributor rank only applies to the sales of photos and illustrations. It is not applied to footage sales.

* When sold on the subscription service, 5 downloads will be counted as 1 download on PIXTA.
Ranks below 1 will not be displayed to public, which means nobody will know who’s at which rank except for the contributor himself/herself.

If a contributor’s rank is 2 or higher, the rank icon will be displayed at the contributor’s profile page (https://www.pixtastock.com/@*****). In this state, other people could see the rank, too.


Rank Up and Royalty Change

Once you have reached the required sales, you will rank up and your rank icon as well as your comission rates will be updated.
The ranks will be revised every month considering your sales for one year until the day before the day of your subscription.

(E.g Based on a subscription on the 3rd of the month, your rank will be revised every 3rd of the following months, September 2, October 2… and the new rank will apply from the next day at 7am).


Display Rank

Sales count and rank are shown in your account page as following.


Sales Count (Month) : Total sales from the beginning of the month

Sales from 2013-07-14 : Your sales from the day of your registration (the part with 2014-07-14) until one day before

Sales Count (Total) : total sales from 01/01/2009

The number is refreshed every day.
There could occur some time lags in refreshing the record.
Please see Sales Record for the newest information.

As soon as the required sales count is fulfilled and rank is changed, the new rank and the new royalty rate will be applied from the next day. This means your royalty won’t be fixed retroactively.
