Reasons Why Freepik’s Contributor Panel Makes Your Life Easier
With the contributor panel, you don’t have to worry about anything else as you can control the workflow and keep track of your files from a single place. You create and upload, and we do the rest.
Aren’t convinced yet? Below we tell you why the contributor panel makes it easy to upload and earn money!
1. Upload resources easily
Once you access the panel, you can start uploading your content! Remember you can submit different types of resources: photos (.jpg), vectors (.jpg + .eps) or PSD files (.jpg + .psd). You can use the FTP server or web upload via the panel.
The system allows you to upload your work in a batch with multiple files at once. This is very useful when you want to upload many resources, especially when you’re starting to share your content on Freepik.
Is it your first time as a contributor? Then, make sure you submit 20 of your best resources. We recommend they all are of the same content type so that we can see what you’re capable of. Decide on the category you’re good at and give it your best shots!
2. Track the status of your resources
One of the most interesting features is the fact that you can track the status of your submitted files.
Whether they have been accepted or rejected, this information will help you improve your portfolio. For instance, if your resources have been rejected, you can try a different approach and, if you get your content accepted, you can learn what worked better.

3. Intuitive tagging process
After uploading your resources, they will appear in the “Not yet submitted” section. And there, the system will ask you to add the metadata.
Why is it that important? Metadata is essential for proper localization of the resources on the Internet as it allows users to find what they are looking for. So properly tagging your resources will help users to find your content! This means that you can increase your downloads with the right keywords.
So, in order to add tags and titles, you can do it in two different ways: by adding them directly from the panel or by uploading a CSV file, and the system will automatically retrieve them.
4. Check the statistics
As a contributor, your earnings are based on a pay-per-download method. In the Stats section, you can find useful data concerning your revenue and downloads. For example, you can check how many times users have downloaded your resources and how much you will be earning.
You can also know the RPI (revenue per image) that you’re getting. The panel allows you to sort information by month, year…, so you will know at all times which designs worked best!
Obviously, the panel offers many other features to make your contributor journey pleasant and worthwhile. Whenever you feel uninspired, you can get ideas and recommendations from the Recommended themes section you’ll see in the Dashboard.
As you can see, Freepik’s Contributor Panel offers many amazing advantages that make content submission simpler and faster.
