Frequently asked questions

What are credits?

Credits are the most flexible way to download photos, illustrations, vectors and video clips on iStock.

It's up to you how you want to use credits – buy just enough for the images and video clips you need or stock up and save on future downloads – the more you buy, the less they cost. There's no limit for when you use your credit downloads. And since they won't expire as long as you sign in to your account at least once a year, they'll always be there when you need them.

What if I change my mind?

We’ll gladly refund credit pack purchases made within 14 days of your invoice date, provided you haven’t used any credits from the credit pack.
