Dreamstime Review of Program Details

Dreamstime is a stock photography agency where people can join and download images to use in web design, blog posts, presentations etc. The prices of the photos are very competitive.

Earn for 3 yearsCommission rate is 10%. As an affiliate, you can refer customers who download pics, or you can refer photographers and get your 10% cut of their revenue. You earn for the first 3 years of referring an individual! This ensures a nice snowball effect on revenue if you continuously promote them for years.

On the website they say:

Anyone can be your referral, buyers or contributors. You make money for both equally.

This means it doesn’t matter whether you want to promote to buyers or sellers, you will earn money from either. They also accept multiple currencies so are great if you want to promote to people around the world. Payments are made to you within 7 days of requesting a payout. Cookie length is 30 days.

They are one of the biggest microstock agencies alongside iStockPhoto and Alamy and get really good reviews online. It is worth also keeping an eye out for coupon codes so when you promote the website you can tell your audience how to get a discount. It is worth being aware of their pricing for credits and how much different licenses cost. At the end of the day the more knowledge you arm yourself with the more you can help people out and earn more money in turn.

They get thousands of submissions to them every week, which means they only accept the best, it leads to a lower acceptance rate but means Dreamstime buyers are happy with the quality. And the approval time is quite short considering how many submissions they get, so photographers can still be pleased to they aren’t kept waiting forever.

To join their affiliate program you need to create a regular free account, you will then have an ‘affiliate’ section you can access with links/details etc.

Thanks for the info. I want to know if there is any documentation available regarding how to integrate dreamstime API. Any pointers in this regard is greatly appreciated.


Yes, Dreamstime is a great agency and their referral program is also great! I am trying to promote them in various ways for some time and I also sell my photos there. They are my favorite agency by all means and I am satisfied with them.
My latest project aimed at Dreamstime promotion (bringing new buyers) powered by Dreamstime API is here, if you want to take a look. 😉
