Answer to common questions
Purchasing & Payment
  • What is the difference between "Subscription" and "Single Purchase"?
  • Single Purchase allows you to purchase stock media assets for a one-time fee. With a subscription plan, you can download as part of a free, standard, or premium subscription.  Media content included in the Subscription library and Single Purchase library are not overlapping. Therefore, media assets in the Subscription library cannot be purchase separately, and vice versa. 

  • How do I choose a subscription plan?
  • There are 3 subscription plans available: Free, Standard and Premium.  


    Free Subscription Plan: Once you have registered on Filmstocks or got a Wondershare ID, you will be enrolled in the Free Subscription plan automatically. Download all the free assets now with no charge.


    Standard Subscription Plan: Once you have subscribed to the Standard plan, you will get unlimited downloads of media assets in the Standard Library during the period of time covered by your subscription.


    Premium Subscription Plan: Once you have subscribed to the Premium Plan, you will get unlimited downloads of media assets in the Standard library and 20 downloads of media content per month from the Premium library. You will receive all the download credits at once when you have successfully subscribed. Download credits do not roll over and will restart at the beginning of your next billing cycle.
