The Marketplace was created to give you a larger variety of clips to choose from outside of the Member Library. But over the years, you made your voices heard. You weren’t truly able to access everything Storyblocks had to offer with a subscription, and the Marketplace was an added expense. We knew we needed to think of a solution to provide a truly unlimited stock library to disrupt the traditional stock media model and give creatives a place to experiment, thrive, and iterate without restrictions.
While the Marketplace was originally created to allow access to even more content, less than 5% of you were purchasing from it, which ultimately hurt the contributors who depended on these sales. We are committed to providing high-quality stock media that’s accessible to every creative, and we believe that removing the Marketplace paves the way to fulfilling that commitment.
