They rarely get above $15 per month for me more often $5 to $10.

But it doesn't matter I'm deleting my stuff from there anyway, I stopped uploading after the cut in royalties

Funny how often sites announce exciting news that they are cutting royalties to boost sales...the exact opposite nearly always seem to apply. Maybe they should think about doing their job better and marketing effectively  :o.

Hopefully they go down and itll be one less contributor unfriendly site hanging around

Great. ::)

They really fell off a cliff a year or so ago. My 12 month credits have dropped over 50% in the last year. I think my RPD is now lower than a subscription DL from SS. I stopped uploading when they last announced the exciting news that they will pay us less. I will probably try to delete my portfolio if I can't deactivate it.

For me it went from regular $100+ a month to less than $25. There was a very sharp decline since March, not only in $ but in overall sales. The majority of my port is invisible in search and support stopped responding several months ago. They seem to be in complete disarray. I'm couple of dollars shy from 50 and once reached I'll erase manually all my images. At this point I have zero trust in them

They really have plummeted.

I just posted in another thread, but this could explain the massive drop:

"Most of my new images can't be purchased.

You can find them in searches or portfolio views but when you click the specific image you get nothing but a greyed out screen, like the pop up window to buy the image doesn't work. Explains poor sales this month for me. Really bad news. Anyone else?"

I randomly clicked on few of my images (as a buyer) and had the same issue. The pop up purchase screen just greyed out and I wasn't able to click on anything. The sales graph on my account shows a very drastic drop in July and this probably explained it.

Yeah, I agree. I think the site is basically half-down for buyers. VERY bad news.

How a technical problem like this isn't fixed overnight I'll never know!

...aaand done. Deleted everything but will keep my account. Honestly this one hurt a little bit since 123rf has been a stable if modest earner over the years. This year has been quite a dissapointment so far after closing accounts at iStock, Deposit and Bigstock. SS is stagnating and having a lot of technical problems, Dreamstime is dying a slow death, the only agency showing nice growth for me is Fotolia/Adobe

I've contacted their support team with the issue. It looks like they're doing some kind of test and it's causing an overlay that covers the whole screen.

How ridiculous they do tests like this on the live site instead of doing it offline

123rf. The most antiquated, backward, stilted agency you can work with unless you enjoy working in the 1990's. Makes me want to wear a headband and listen to Abba records every time I visit that site....

I agree with all written above. That's why I deleted my portfolio on 123rf.

Is this fixed now? I tried to purchase one of my images and it works, it took me to the cash-out page.
Maybe not everything is affected but my sales are catastrophic, $0.196 yesterday.

I am out of here too as soon as I receive this last payout.

Turns out to be an Adblock issue. You're seeing that gray screen because it's interacting badly with your adblocker, so if a buyer is using adblock, they'll get stuck. They said they're looking into fixing the issue.

Aug 2018 - 1 sale, 51c. Been there years and almost a zero month! 2 months + for reviews too, not long for this world imo.

Deleted my portfolio at 123RF last week. Simply a waste of time.

I still have accepted videos that aren't showing up...accepted four weeks ago. So I agree, the site is messed up and the staff does not seem responsive to site issues.  Maybe they're just milking every last cent they can before calling it quits.
