I don't know why people dislike iStock so much, it sells.

Going from $400 in September to $200 in Oct is not my idea of success.

Because they pay us just 15% of the selling price and a lot of other bad things!

Is it an annual thing that there is always a negative 'royalty free and stills' in their September?

soon there will be a zero behind your highest month thus you will be in the thousands of $$ per month... 8)

If me or anyone could figure that out we would be rich:) Seriously, I do not have a clue.  What I do know is that it's been quite some time since I've uploaded video there and only now and then am I uploading images.  I suppose it would be inactivity if they use that in their algorithm.  Who knows, though.

3rd BMY but low rpd ($1.62); worst October ever (since 2007).

Like this?
Gross royalty $0.05000
or
Gross royalty $0.06074
or
Gross royalty $0.10025
or
Gross royalty $0.12600

I should like that?

Or that total downloads are down 30% from last year?  :(

But I can see why exclusives would like iStock.  :) They get rewarded for being loyal and they should.

Sales are good but almost 40% of them are in $0.03-0.15 range, RPD this month is just $0.165.  :'(

And now my images there are competing with the same images in AS and SS that provide far far far better RPD.

I suppose sales are relative. It used to be nice to reliably make 4 to 5 times more a month.

RPD oct
Shutter - 1,02
Istock - 0,99
AS - 0,96
unusually equal RPD in Oct.

For me, iStock is the best one with RPD.

Seems to me that almost all agencies are now capitalizing on the SS downslope!
