Have you heard the latest news in the stock photo industry? The Dollar Photo Club has decided to terminate their services this coming April. While this is bad news for active DPC members, it is not actually all that bad because they get to checkout other stock photo agencies that might have better offers. For one, 99 Club offers fairly the same product as the DPC with even better features and benefits.
If the Dollar Photo Club is a good stock site, why is it closing? After two years of business, the stock photo site has finally decided to terminate its services because it was acquired by Adobe’s very own stock photo agency. The deal was completed in January 2015 but the actual termination will be on April 15, 2016, providing its users a chance for smoother transition to a better stock site.
What’s the best thing about the DPC closing?
With the Dollar Photo Club closed, users get to find a better stock photo agencies. Surely, there are a lot of websites out there that are more than willing to take in the orphaned DPC members. However, the more important thing is which of them these bereaved users will go to. The termination date is fast approaching. They should already have rounded up to a couple or three choices.
The DPC customer support remains open for further queries. They can pitch their concerns regarding the closure anytime. Once the stock photo site is permanently closed, they can no longer renew their subscriptions which means no payment methods will be charged in the future. The service will not be accessible anymore so they will not have access to their image history anymore.
What stock photo agency should you consider as a Dollar Photo Club alternative?
As mentioned above, a number of stock photo sites are available for the Dollar Photo Club members when the site closes. All of them are great but the orphaned members need something familiar, but better. Luckily, there is one stock site that offers fairly the same product as the DPC, only with better benefits and features. It is curated by Stock Photo Secrets so they can be sure that they are getting premium quality images at very attractive prices.
99 Club has over 4 million stock images, illustrations and vectors in its library. All of which are available in various sizes from small to XXL. The annual subscription plan includes 200 images, which is twice the allotted download of the Dollar Photo Club. The image downloads do not expire, which means you can use the images forever. Moreover, the website is here to stay. It will be around for over 10 years and members can manually renew their subscription every year.
