Is that an "OD" or an "SOD"? "On demands" are never more than $2.85, but Single & Other Downloads can be for any amount.

Do they still give referral earnings?  I thought it was only 3 cents.

Earn $0.04 each time an image* is downloaded for the first two years after your referred contributor is approved.

I think they increased it from 3c to 4c at the same time that they scrapped the "pay you forever" promise and cut off all referrals that dated back more than 2 years. You know, the old sugar coating on the poisoned pill.

Correct I get got 4c and it seems that the last one referred disappeared, so now I get nothing. It was fun but unless someone has about 1000 referrals, it's not a way to earn like it once was.

Odd it seems like I linked to this page last week. And the week before and the week before...

I have more than 900 referrals, but my last month referral earning was less than $3.00 (many people cannot get enough number of photos accepted). It's more or less same in every month. There is no point of referring SS anymore.

I suspected that income had dropped and some people did well in the early years with referral income. Too bad, sounds like you worked very hard to get 900. Leaf probably still has a good group too.

At first I wanted just one to pass the review and get accepted. I don't know if there's still a list, but when I could see it, there was only one. Which says something to me about the real number of working contributors vs the 75,000 number that some report.

When there were roughly 33,000 active users on record, (2012) half had 100 or less images.

Anyone can make their own guesses from that.

Fortunately, I didn't do much to get that number.

Out of my 900+ referrals, I think less than 10 got some images online. Only one guy has more than 500, others have less than 50 as I remember. I even don't bother about checking those anymore.

Seems like Pareto principle dominates here too. It definitely applies to my port. :D
