Note: Marketplace media from partners like Getty and Shutterstock is available on our Business plan and above.

About the Media Marketplace

We have partnered with the world's best stock media providers like Getty and Shutterstock. We provide this media to use in Lumen5 at a fraction of the cost of purchasing it directly. Customers on the Business plan get credits they can use towards 160 million images and videos to use in their Lumen5 projects.

Marketplace tab & Icons

Media that uses your monthly credits can be found in the Marketplace tab.  Results are marked with a crown icon.

Scenes in your video will have a crown icon to the left of them if the media is from the Marketplace and will use a credit.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I get credits to use in the marketplace?

You can get marketplace credits by signing up for the Business plan. Visit the pricing page for more information. When you're on a Business plan, you receive 15 credits per month. 

What can I do if I run out of marketplace credits?


Once you run out of credits, you will get an option to purchase a top-up when you click on the Publish button in the editor.

If you think that you will need more credits on an ongoing basis, we can create a custom plan for you! The price varies depending on how many additional credits you need, so contact us for more information.

When do my credits reset?

Your credits reset at the beginning of each billing period! So if we bill you on the 1st of the month, your credits will reset then.

Do my marketplace credits rollover?

Credits don't rollover, so make sure to use them up and make tons of great videos!

What about annual plans?

You get all of your marketplace media credits right away when you sign up for an annual plan.  Your credit count will reset at the end of your billing period (at the end of your year).

Visit the Billing Page to see how many credits you have.
