Anyone else noticing complete shutdown of sales for the past week? This would be the worst month ever since we contribute if this blackout continues.  :o

Yup it's been dead all month Shutterstock even more so

Very likely all eyes are focussed on the Winter Olympics and Valentines Day.  I've noticed in the past Summer and Winter Olympics that my sales slow down during the games.

So you felt, you need to open new topic about it? Probably about 639439349 topics about "no sales" already.

Is your sales normal today?

After reading this, I became concerned, so I checked the sales on my previous 4,380 days here and discovered that sales were better than my worst day and worse than my best day.  I was going to compare it to my previous 12 second Mondays in February, but I lost interest.

I think you need to check hour by hour, include when Ash Wednesday was the same day as Valentine's day. I think the Moon has an effect, sales improve or decline when it's around the full moon. I'm positive, when the 1st is a Thursday or Friday sales for the first two weeks will be lower than if the 1st is a Monday. It's Mardi Gras, Shrove Tuesday today, probably why sales are up for me.

Sadly my formerly reliable Valentine's day seller has barely registered this year I can only assume romance is dead. Maybe I should have done some pancake day ones to compete with the mere 10,116 already up for grabs.

My cap was lifted for 3 days and during that period totally fantastic,  then they switched off and daily takings fell by 70% and not only me but same with a whole bunch of oldies!
Very questionable indeed actually!

i don't know what think  till 17 th january impressive result than less than 25% of what earned in 17 th days. last week appalling with less than 100 sod only. 3 2,85 sale.
in my opinion this site has a lot of glitches and problem, it would be nice some buyer tells if it's true. yesterday ftp broken for long time....today sales appears slowly in total earning, total earning not linked to real sales.
they clearly cannot manage the flow of  bull...it from amateur.
yesterday saw some images appalling. i went to read the forum of shutter stock and i stumbled on one thread of a guy asking some comments about portfolio...i started crying. unbelievable.

Why do they lift and replace the cap for you and your chums at the same time?

When I have good sales it's obviously due to skills and the algorithm is clearly adjusted to be perfectly fair to all contributors. If I have bad sales then then its obviously unfairly manipulated.

he not have a clue.
i read often the russian micro stock forum....a place with really thousand of contributor some earning probably more than all the daily contributor here together , and practically every contributor thinks that sales are practically 100% controlled by shutter stock. How couldn't be so clear? they are the only in stock market..they need to earn, they must have  steady grow.

there is always a clear path. something non existent in fotolia or istock.

Why apply a cap why not just direct buyers to the 25c offerings if the buyers are happy to buy them instead of your superior work whats the problem? If SS want to apply a "cap" they are entitled to why don't you take your business elsewhere if you dislike them so much?
