How is the Price Determined for Each Item?

Pond5 is a marketplace. Our artists have the freedom to set prices for their media and earn industry-leading commissions on all sales. We are proud to provide a platform where creativity can flourish and contributors can make a sustainable living licensing their work to buyers worldwide.

What is the Best Price Guarantee?

If you find a better price elsewhere, Pond5 will match it. The competitor’s item must be identical in length, format, and other technical specs. Before or within 30 days of purchase, share a link to the lower-priced asset you would like us to price match at or call +1 (855) 410-6789. See our Help Center for more information about our Best Price Guarantee.
