I am contributing photos to SS, Adobe and iStock.
I have constant sales in that order and thinking to extend to other agencies.

Which one is worth trying?

I think that tells you. Very few others worth the candle. :(

Until yesterday I would have said Alamy?  ;) But true, after the top three, there's not much anymore in the way of "GOOD" sales, just some scraps and nibbles.

Just want to make my point clear on Alamy. 40% is still better than most others and according to Alamy they are not Microstock. With that being said, they don't get many downloads for my work and when they do, I gets $12-$15 so RPD is still nice but overall total income is nothing special.

SS, AS, IS, P5 and Alamy that's my list and I'm sticking to it.  ;)

You've answered your own question

Anything times zero is zero - RPD isn't in any way interesting unless you also have decent volume.

Once upon a time, DT was the solid #3 in the list of agencies, but they've fallen on very hard times in the last few years. My sales there are pathetic and a fraction of what they once were.

With essentially the same size portfolio (I no longer upload there, so DT doesn't have the most recent work) in November, DT made 0.036% of the money I made at Adobe Stock.

DT made one tenth of the money I made at DT in 2013 for November (2018 vs 2013). November has historically been my best month at all the agencies

I wouldn't waste your time uploading to DT

That's what I was thinking. I've been saying for a while that if I was starting now, I wouldn't. But of course, it's hindsight that's making me say that!

Optimistically sites such as alamy, EyeEm etc. would be good for uploading if you have something different.
