Best Price Guarantee

Here at Pond5, we want you to shop with confidence knowing you’re getting the best possible deal on quality media. If you find a better price elsewhere on an identical clip, Pond5 will match it. In short, we won’t be beat! 

How does Pond5’s price matching work?

  1. Make sure the Pond5 item you’d like to price match is identical to the competitor's item.
  2. Share a link to the lower price you would like us to price match at or +1 (855) 410-6789.
  3. Our team will adjust the price accordingly.

What if I’ve already purchased an item from Pond5? Can I request a price match after my purchase?

Yes. We’ll gladly price match identical items for requests submitted within 30 days of your purchase. Please connect with our team at or +1 (855) 410-6789 with a link to the lower price and we will process your refund.

What items qualify for price matching?

We offer price matching on all media available on our marketplace. The competitor’s item must be identical in length, format and other technical specs.

How do I present the lower-priced item?

The best way to present us with the exact-match, lower-priced item is to send us a link of the item page of the competitor's item. We’ll check the link to verify the lower USD ($) price.
