A comparison of footage sales between Adobe Fotolia and Shutterstock. Who is better?

My sales at Adobe Fotolia are practically at zero. At Shutterstock my footage sales are great. Others?

5 SS sale for each Adobe/Fotolia sale.
The tendency that I can observe from my minuscule point of view is that the other agencies, like Adobe/Fotolia and the newly active Pond5, are eating up SS primacy.
This event shuffles the cards but I cannot be sure the all sales that I lost in SS are going to be balanced by more sales in the other agencies

Our Fotolia:Shutterstock ratio in terms of revenue is about 1:2 for a few recent months.
I've noticed that Fotolia is quite a poor 4K seller, we had only 2 sales so far.
Things I definitely like about Fotolia are really fast reviews and relatively fast first video sales.
What are your prime subjects in footages?

For footage submission Adobe is definitely the better experience. Fast ftp and revue. Shutterstock has the slowest ftp in the industry.

For footage sales Shutterstock easily beats Adobe. Recently my Adobe sales have fallen (no idea why). Last month my SS sales were roughly x10 that of Adobe.

For me SS income is also around 10x Adobe/Fotolia.

SS! lightyears more sales then Adobe/ft. I also get the impression Adobe/ft havent really thought this through properly. Their video search is just horrendous.

At least Fotolia doesn't make messy search engine enhancements every week and makes difference between single and plural (if I'm correct). Today is the first day Fotolia has contributor site issues in months while Shutterstock's outages have almost weather forecast consistency.

My revenue ratio is 3:1 (SS:FT)
The most annoying thing about FT is lack of CSV importing feature...

Shutterstock is much higher but Fotolia sales are increasing nicely in the last few months.
