Just shows how difficult it is for newbies nowadays. Sorry, but you're just too late to the party.

It takes time, especially if it is seasonal, for images and videos to get position with each company. Sounds like you loaded up some good vids with seven sales already! Make sure you continue to upload so keep these sales going.  Good luck!   8)

You seem to be doing incredibly well, especially for video. I have never heard of anyone non exclusive doing well with video at istink.
Be aware though, some agencies give you several sales at the beginning as a welcome aboard package at the beginning

Boom?

Seriously Christiano you do realise you make 15% on iStock for images? Often a lot less than it costs to even look up your stats with that outfit.

It would be more interesting to hear how much cash you made on iS to put it in perspective you can then work out how much iS made on your sales

Video's are selling incredibly well on istock with download numbers 5-10 X that of shutterstock. Unfortunately the majority of these sell on the Getty side of things under premium access where the average download for HD/4K is under $1. Many are for $0.12. So when you say you have sold 7 videos I wouldn't be half surprised if you receive  $0.84 for the lot of them.
I get hundreds of sales every month on istock/getty where the new normal seems to be royalties in the $0.33 / $0.12 range. The old norm of single royalties in the $100's seem to be disappearing fast.
Getty are just getting more greedy with the Premium Access and I really think they are shooting themselves in the foot. I haven't and many others been uploading there for a while now and soon enough their portfolio will look stale and stagnant (talking about video side of things). I'm non-exclusive BTW

If this is the case for my 7 videos sold, I will do not upload more on IS ... it was just a test.

I've also sold 13 videos this month and I only joined mid July! Which has amazed me too.
Not looking forward to the prices.
I wish I had this much activity elsewhere!
