Microstock+ may work independently or in a conjunction with Stocksubmitter. Conjunction means that some of M+ features are implemented in StockSubmitter. It is only possible for Windows users or those who's working with StockSubmitter via virtual engine since other operational systems don't support StockSubmitter.

What's the purpose of a conjunction between the products?


  • Solving a slow or unstable internet connection problem
    Upload your files to M+ once and all the following operations will be performed by our servers fast and efficiently.
  • Solving a problem with a denied access to the microstock agency
    Some microstock agencies might be blocked in your country (or in the country you're currently in) and you may need VPN to access it. M+ servers are located in Europe and don't have such problems.
  • You're always in the move or travel a lot and need a remote control
    M+ allows you to manage files with any device with a browser. Once you're back to your main PC, launch StockSubmitter and it will synchronize all statuses. Notice that data and thumbnail synchronization is a one-way process. It means that all the changes in StockSubmitter impact on M+ but not vice versa.
  • Using cloud-based features in StockSubmitter
    You may track Accepted and Declined statuses only when your StockSubmitter is in a conjunction with M+.

M+ will synchronize all connected to StockSubmitter microstock agencies and you don't need to manage it manually. Your releases database will be backed up to our servers to provide you with a complementary security against data loss. Notice that synchronization is a one-way process (from StockSubmitter to M+). If you'd like to connect more agencies or change login/password for any microstock agency account you need to do it directly in StockSubmitter.
