Pond5 was the first stock music library I signed up to. I have had relative good sales results and all of the tracks I have submitted, have been approved. It’s the only library that has been selling on a regular basis for me.

Uploading on Pond5 is like a walk in the park

The upload process on Pond5 is very easy and tracks are approved in 1-2 days. Their tagging system is in my opinion one of the best I have seen so far. Another nice thing about pond5 is that they allow you to set your own prices.


  • Ease of Use
  • Help & Support
  • Income potential / ability to sell


Basically the most consistent library out there when it comes to sales. Pond5 also have an excellent interface which makes it very easy to upload new tracks.
