  2. Nancy, thanks for the information. Can you give me a reason why the price of the Pro images is $8,-?

    If I visit their website the priceplan is about 0.8$, which is more common and competitive

      Hi Marco. Thanks for your comment. Our pricing structure is different in that it allows for a single image purchase. Bigstock does not allow for a pay per image option. With Bigstock you either have to buy multiple credits at once even if you only want to buy one image or pay for a monthly subscription plan. We found many of our customers wanted the simplicity of purchasing a single image and also the ease of being able to do so from directly within the product. We hope you find this and the many other updates we’ve made to MyLibrary useful!

  4. Can I use my current Bigstock account credits? Do I “own” the picture for the licensed use? I ask because the price of $8 is quite high compared to the credit plan I use, but I can only use a picture once per credit, typically. If I use it a 2nd time, I have to use a credit before doing that. Will the $8 price allow me to use that picture for whatever I want to?

      Thanks for your comments. When you purchase Bigstock images directly from within Constant Contact those images will go into your image library for use in any email – you can use them as often as you like for as long as you’re a customer. So, yes you own the picture for licensed use within email. Our pricing structure is different in that it allows for a single image purchase. With Bigstock credits you have to buy multiple credits at once even if you only want to buy one image. Additionally by incorporating the purchase directly from within Constant Contact we sought to help save small businesses time with a more efficient process. We hope you find this and the many other updates we’ve made to MyLibrary useful!
