From time to time I am getting subscription sales. Like a couple per month. Still better than Yay :) But worse than Crestock.

400 files online

17 sales  total (14 sub - 3 regular) 9 in April.

As a buyer, I've purchased 23 in April for use on web projects. Cleanest / easiest site for buyers AND sellers...As FD said, they put their $$$ upfront so I'll hang out... ;)

> 500 online, got 4 subs first month, zip after that. I did/do not expect anything from them, got my bonus, will wait holding period and remove (unless they prove they are not a regular bubble)
Congratulations to your sales! :)
 
Can I ask you something? What is the reason for deleting images after they dont sell? I mean it in general not just on DepositPhotos. Now and then I read someone saying that he/she will delete all his/her pictures if they dont sell. Why? For what can be that good for? If you spended some time by uploading, categorizing etc. why to delete them? Maybe they will not sell maybe they will. But as long as images are there, than there are still some chances, but if you delete them, than all chances to sell them are lost. It is better something (even possible/theoretical something :) ), than nothing. Isnt it ???

But never mind as I sayed before I am just hobby photographer, not "Big Stock Picture Factory" like skilled MicroStockers here. I take it mostly as hobby/fun and I am very happy from every sale.

During years I deleted some of my pictures from my portfolios too, but that was mostly for reason that I wasnt satisfied with their quality any more those were old photos that I shot many years ago.

re your ques to UG: I'm on a handful of micros now, since I left sites my small port didn't do much on. I don't like the idea of having images for sale somewhere I'm not getting payouts, esp. after a year+; plus it makes it easier to have some exclusive images where I actually get payouts.

1st sale a couple of days ago after 7 months submitting.  $0.30 on a sub, woo hoo I think I'll buy a..a..a what can you buy for $0.30?  But a sale is a sale and hopefully a sign of things to come.

I am sorry to hear that I never heard it happened on DP before. It can be whatever email support and we will see Noone here can give you exact answer.

I uploaded 250 photos there in Feb this year and have been adding when I get a chance since then. Now up to 420.

Sales have been relatively consistent (numbers in downloads):

March: 17
April: 30
May: 22
June: 27

Will keep adding images and see if it grows...

any improvement on sales? i notice there are credits plan instead of subscription plan that will pay more for images, anyone getting credits sales?

for subscription sales, does it match something like shutterstock?

^^^ Nothing like shutterstock, I did get a credit sale recently.  They are doing quite well for a new site but I only really uploaded because they paid a bonus.

I get a sell every now and then. Not a lot but I do get a random sell every now and then. What I mainly get are subscription sales. I've had a couple of credit sales and only one SMS sale. The ones that have sold are mainly the same ones over and over.

DP seems very low traffic? low views and low sales and all the sales i got is 0.30.

I try to check out the commission faq..

http://submit.depositphotos.com/pages/seller-price

If you're a photographer or an illustrator looking to make money on your work, you've come to the right place. DepositPhotos.com is the internet's highest paying photostock website you'll find!


why they claim they are the highest paying photostock website? while every sale is 0.30..once a while.

I calculated my average revenue and decided that I won't license my images under $0.50 any more. $0.29 was insultingly small average price. I deleted my images on Deposit Photos. Though I love the site environment. It's a beautiful site.
My one and only exception under $0.50 ($0.45 to be precise) is Shutterstock because of the volume.
