Does anyone know if you have your account suspended by a MS Company do they contact you or just shutdown without warning? One company that was selling very well just went completely blank like zero sales each day... :-\

Test it. Search for one of your own photos and buy it. Or have someone else buy it.

If your account isn't already closed, buying your own images is a good way to make it happen.  If you can see your images for sale then your account is still live.

okay, I do the search and found my images but didn't attempt to purchase it. Just strange that I get sales for the last 80 days and now no sales at all for three days. I was thinking the maybe the search engine was changed as DT has done in the past...

yes, that is probably the case.  If you don't have that many images (or sales), a simple little search shake could dry up your sales pretty quick.

as luck would have it- I just got a sale! I will never fully understand this business for sure. The more I analysis the more I realize that I don't have much control over things as I would like to...

Thanks

   It's SS or IS?
Cause I don't sell anything at IS for 5-6 days and I don't have any views on my files. But I can find them on searches. And I do get reviews of new files.

iS Contributor News: September 14, 2012: Image views are not showing in real time. There is now a longer delay to the view counter updating after a view. We are looking into this.

Reviewers on strike?

For the first time since I started on IS (year and a half ago) I can upload a new batch while the previous is still pending for review (sept 10)
Anyone else?

   The reviews are very very slow, More than a week, but it's a sign that is not dead.

Noone wants to be a reviewer.
I can understand that, 4 cents per image. What would you expect?

And you choose right and wrong. And get blamed aftewards by contributors who love their photo, their model or themselves.

Lousy job.

I've heard a good reviewer can do 2,000 pics a day thus at .04 a pic that equates to $80 per day. This is about $10 per hour. I thought reviewers made around $40k a year?

Different sites pay different rates, there's no a fixed global pay per photo that includes all agencies.

Same here for four days. Sales = 0 on all agencies.

   How many files do you have?
I have a small port, but I sell every day. For me seems like FT and SS are doing well. Nothing at IS for 6 days...
