I'm experiencing a very poor start to the month too..the few sales I've had have been of my better sellers... up till recently I was getting a lot of sales of my somewhat dubious older images that had never sold...I suspect a big change in the algorithm which may be working out badly for some of us.

You seem to have some kind of cognitive dissonance issue here the only one suggesting pulling ports is you. I guess its not surprising when you make so many contradictory posts.

Thomas its obvious SS have stirred the pot again.  Looking at my most relevant/popular/what ever it now shows piles of junk from way back when which never had any sales and all the really popular stuff has been thrown to pages 4 & 5

They really can't help themselves :(

this is the explanation,  this is their total income in the history:

this is their net income:

in 2018 probably they have reduced in some way the revenue share to gain more money, after years of flat internal earning
this is my theory :)

Bye bye SS sales. Thanks for trashing my income by letting in all the junk from people who can just about operate a shutter, let alone compose an image. Thanks for making a mockery of all the people who have worked hard at composing, editing and earning the right to be accepted for years into the catalogue. Thank you for making an utter pig's ear of the whole site, your poor security allowing easy theft of images.

Thank you so much for nothing. >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:(

I've had some sales today and 2 video sales for $1.50. I'm still very angry about my videos earning $1.50. I wish I could opt out of that like EL opt out option.

Wow. SS is dead. Unbelievable.

^^  Yes! but alive for tens of thousands of noobs and weekend snappers....There is absolutely no doubt that SS is finished as far as serious photography and earning money.
The heydays of Jon are long gone, the once so helpful and knowledgable Admin is replaced by suits and city-twatts knowing absolutely nothing about the creative world and even less about photography!but they are under the severe preassure of constantlly having to produce results for their shareholders no matter what.

I know so many people with ports of 20,30,40000 files in their portfolios and EVERY single one of them is down a staggering 70% and have been for over a year now!

The once so hailed and praised do good agency is today nothing more then a flea market ( people here thats been with them for 8 years or more know exactly what Im talking about)

I feel, they don't experience the loss that contributors are going through. Or they don't care. Or both.

Yup, I even deleted and redownloaded the contributor app. Still can't be opened.

Yes. Was working fine yesterday. Last App update was Nov 2nd so I assume they've busted something on the server end versus a bug in the app itself.

Yeah and these weekend snappers will never reach payout as they'll get buried after a few sales... meaning that SS will get to keep the money  8)
