Think of credits as iStockphoto's very own currency. You can check your Subscription credit balance in the menu under Account. The credit cost of any file depends on its size or complexity.
A Corporate Credit Account lets you buy credits in bulk that last for an entire year. One payment gets you credits that you can use whenever you want. You can distribute these credits however you like among your Sub-Accounts and even use them yourself.
Our Subscriptions work like a seating program. Different Subscription plans have a different number of seats to place Sub-Accounts in. So if a Subscription plan is for 5 users, you can allow access for up to 5 Sub-Accounts to use the same plan. You can share the daily Subscription credits you have between all the Sub-Accounts.
Terms aren't so much a type of credit plan as they are a way for you to buy your Corporate Credits or Subscription credits. With Terms you receive an invoice with each credit bundle purchased and a 30-day term in which to pay.
To top it all off, you can use all three of these payment options for your one account. Distribute Corporate Credits to external contractors, give your internal teams subscriptions, and use terms to account for it all. How you decide to use it is up to you. iStockphoto Corporate Accounts are the most flexible system for your team.
