Ways to Buy

There are three ways to buy vector images at VectorStock:


Pay-per-Image purchases are best suited for visitors who just want a single image, without any fuss. You can pay for the license you want and instantly download the image, without having to create an account or save a payment method.


Credits are a form of VectorStock currency, 1 Credit costs $1 USD. They can be exchanged for vector licenses; a Standard license costs from 1 credit and an Expanded license costs from 30 credits. Credits are a flexible way of buying images - you can use them when and however you like. There is a minimum purchase of 30 credits.


Subscription plans allow you to download several vectors each month, up to your plan’s limit. These are best for members who download a lot of images. Plans offer the best value for money (from 69c an image) and any unused downloads rollover to the next month and accumulate over time. Only Standard licenses are available to buy with a subscription.
