My sales at 123RF have been on the decline for a couple of years, but in the past couple months its fallen off to new lows. Over an 80% drop in December of 2017 over December of 2016.

As a test, I uploaded some exclusive files to 123RF in early December and those images are still not indexed on Google Images.

I do believe that many buyers use Google Images to search and find images. Maybe a change in Google's algorithm? Images that I uploaded to other agencies were indexed by Google within days.

Same here, December was the worst month ever on 123RF. A drop of 80%-85% of my average monthly revenue. I wonder what caused it.

My high water mark was 2016 made $200 for the entire year after that didn't matter how much I threw at them sales just went down and down.

2017 was down to less than 2013 so I've given up loading to them

I'm still waiting for the doubling of sales they promised... well, I am not waiting really, but it hasn't happened.

Last fall I discovered that about 1/3 of my portfolio didn't even show up anywhere. They fixed that, but sales have still been pretty dire. Last Dec and this month are particularly weak.

2015 was my best year, followed by 2012 (when I think they decided that 50% was just too generous).

For what its worth....123RF fell off the cliff in December. January sales are back to normal so far with sales now equal to the entire month of December.....

Yes, 123rf sales get a sudden drop in the past few months.
I am quite demoralized by this and I think I will drop 2 ranking points because of this.

From a little more than one year my sales on 123RF are less and less every month.

The strangest thing is that none, absolutely none of the new images and videos that I have uploading these last two years are selling. In fact I am still selling the same old images that I have uploaded three, four or even five years ago, always the same 15 or 29 ones

Same here.  I was at $200 a month, then I started seeing $130 and in the last couple of months I am making $30 a month.  Something ugly is happening. Then again, which MS agency is drama free? Not many me thinks.

Same thing here. I think I'm going to delete my BS account. I was getting $100 then $50 and now it is $30 per month.

Yeah, 2015 and 2016 were my best years on 123RF. End of 2017 was half the normal amount. I assume it was because my submissions are down.

Other than this is the 123RF section, you do have my sympathy. BS, DP or 123 these low middle places keep going down. Not for me, I just quit. Some will say at least you make something, which is more than I do. I can't disagree. My only question is, asking myself, how much do I want to work for some peanuts and spare change? Remember it costs nothing to just leave the work you already did on these sites and up for sale. If that's something of value, just stop working for the low earning sites and work harder on where you feel you make the most. Take the income scraps you already worked so hard to get.
