Shutterstock Gives Affiliates a Raise
Maximum payouts for Shutterstock’s affiliate marketing program go up to $200 per referral
Shutterstock®, the leading global provider of stock images and stock footage by subscription, just gave its already popular affiliate marketing program a major boost by increasing its maximum payout to $200 for each referral.
The news reaffirms Shutterstock’s reputation for providing the highest affiliate payouts in the stock image industry.
Shutterstock’s affiliate marketing program makes it easier than ever for site owners and bloggers to monetize their web properties.  After creating a free account, affiliates can take advantage of an array of powerful referral resources. For example, Shutterstock offers an innovative API to select affiliates, enabling their visitors to search and browse Shutterstock’s expansive library of more than 12 million high quality stock photos, illustrations and vector art.
The new upgrades are garnering rave reviews, especially from one of Shutterstock’s top affiliates, Chance Agrella.
“The API search tools integrated quickly, and we're very pleased to offer our users access to Shutterstock's vast premium image catalog," said Agrella. "I am proud to be affiliated with Shutterstock, one of the most prestigious brands in the industry.”
Jon Oringer, founder and CEO of Shutterstock, is confident about the program’s potential.
“We provide the highest payouts in the industry because we appreciate the value that affiliates bring to Shutterstock,” said Oringer. “I welcome site owners to learn more about the program and to join our successful global community of affiliates.”

Shutterstock also recently hired Matt Bell as its new manager of affiliate marketing – a move that reinforces the company’s dedication to further expanding the program.
“At Shutterstock, we truly value our affiliates, and we are committed to providing them with the best customer service in the industry.  We offer a very competitive commission rate of 20% - up to $200 per referral - to help them maximize their earnings,” Bell said.
