Hi!

Just wondering hows it going for other people. Before August i've had steady 2-4 sales per month. Since 08.2018. until now, there are 0 sales.
Anybody experiencing similar?

Something must had happened to Pond5, because we are noticing a big drop in sales also in the past 2-3 months. We have 13000+ of footage.

I still have the same views.
but in the last 30 days I'm only selling 30% of what I usually sell every month.
I've never had such a big drop in sales on Pond5  :(
I do not know what's up.

Pond5 has awoken up for me. After a few years of average sales (50% shutterstock) the last few months have been fantastic. Most mornings I wake to multiple sales. A Lot 4K too and some with upgraded licenses for a considerable amount.

I've been getting sales at the same time (must be 2am UK time or something) as I always notice them early in the morning. I think the pond5 system must add up all the sales and send them out at a certain time?

Sorry for not following the doom trend.

well, yea... that explains it then. The algorithm of capping. Or more anti-capping-assholes-popular-word "exposure time". Enjoy while it lasts :)

Or just a change to the search algorithm which has resulted in some people benefiting and some people losing out.

Great days with P5. Big licenses prices very far from all the others. Very happy with this agency.

I was also very happy to see growing trend over the months, until it just suddenly dropped/stopped.  I guess it will come back, but it is crappy that you depend on algorithm and not on your portfolio/work...

Since then nothing, nada and rien!
Usualy i got $200 - $300 per month.

Not regularly, you're right. I'm uploading via BlackBox since August.
