« on: November 18, 2018, 05:49 »
oh, man, my biggest sale was 6$ and I was very happy about it... after 2 years I have a sum of around 80$. Nice to know, that it is possible to get much more per sale.
I have same username (isumi) on fotolia, any help appreciated.

thanks, yes, with disappear I mean it went to 0. Before it showed all the downloads from the registration date (since 2014 for me), so I found this weird.

iStockPhoto.com / Downloads Year To Date

Hello,

I'm missing the number of downloads year to date in Profile tab (Exclusivity and royalty status). This has been disappeared since end of December/begin of January.
Is someone missing it too?

Thanks.

my worst month on fotolia and ss, started around mid november... on fotolia since 6 days no views and only one sale, usually around 2-4 sale per week. Maybe it's the season.

What is "Downloads Year To Date" in Account Management > Profile ?

2017 credit+subscription or credit+subscription+partner program downloads ?

Is It reliable ?

For me it's the same number which I had before for downloads. So it should be only the credit sales, beginning from the registration date.

I'm not surprised that the reviews are taking less time as before. I think there are not so many people uploading to istock at the moment. I wouldn't even try to upload until all bugs are gone and I can see my actual balance or some stats.

wow, got another 2 emails but this time with the unique url :D By clicking on the last one I could again change the password...
Btw, the number of downloads year to date was update to the one before the migration.

My email didn't show the unique link either, but when I looked on the top of the image, I saw this:

"If you're having trouble viewing this email, read the online version."

And I click on the online version, it took me to the right email content with the right link.
I hope you all can check again successfully!

Tried this. It shows the same email _without_ the unique link.

Try some more times, then you'll see the link as plain text instead of real link.

got some useless newsletter (Survey on the Effectiveness of DMCA) from getty, but still no esp invitation. I wouldn't submit anything to them until they fix everything.

I still didn't get the email, but I could log in with my email registered by istock. In the profile in Account Management under basic information it says "Downloads Year To Date" the wrong number of photos, 7 instead of 9... is your counter showing right values?

it seems like istock has one or some trainees who are typing emails of all users to send the new credentials. I can't explain it otherwise why they need 3 days for this. Btw, it's already 4th Feb. here and no email is in my inbox. It can't be right what they are doing. It's not an agency, it's a bad joke.

With a bit more than 100 photos on istock I'm probably not in position to judge but anyway I really don't feel it, istock is as good as shutterstock for me, actually even better with better prices and in my short time and tiny volume I even scored single $40 sale. But yes I agree, ticking boxes in order to explain what my keywords that I already entered mean is really painful.

When I started nothing really happened too, but after a month or so it started moving, both with view and sales.
But it's not unusual to have sales while counter states zero views too. I say give it time and volume. 3 is really like having nothing uploaded at all, it's a drop in the sea.

Did you get 40$ for one sold picture or is it a sum for all sales?

it was nice to find out that I wasn't the only one, who had problems with the sales stats... Great, I hoped that IS will be better, but instead they're doing changes on the live site without testing, without any concrete warning...  very unprofessional...
Unfortunately I've had only 54,50$ (after 2 years) so it's a lot until 100$ for me :( but if it stays like this until March 2017 I'll definitely quit. Just wasted time to upload all the images  >:(
iS have done changes on the live site without testing for year, but this probabyb isn't one of them. They've just disabled statistical features early prior to moving them offsite.
Still, no need to wait until you have $100. If you want to quit right away, you'll get whatever money accrues.
Thanks for the info, I didn't know that I would get something under 100$. At the moment I found the Deep Meta from other threads, so it's ok with the stats. Maybe I'll try this tool also to upload some images.
