How do you know your acceptance ratio in StockXpert?

Adelaide.... I just track it with every site I upload to.  A simple excel spreadsheet will do the math for you.  8)=tom

I no longer upload to StockXpert either and haven't for awhile. I will test a couple of images every now and then just to see if things have changed but so far it's reject reject reject. They're happy to take isolated objects or illustrations but don't want the work I enjoy doing. So when I do shoot a boring object shot or an illustration I might give it to them but then again maybe not.

iStock is actually my favorite site to upload to in spite of how angry I get with them from time to time. They seem to judge my work on it's technical aspect rather than "oh it's a flower and we don't want it" and my acceptance rate is good there. I'm not one of their best sellers but they at least let me build my port with what I like and give it a chance.

Next to BigStock....   My highest acceptance rate is now with  IS  !!  And even with much that they reject... I am given direction and opportunity to fix it and resubmit.   My resubmits have been 100% accepted.  I never thought I'd would EVER say this...  but..  I have caught myself thinking about  .......exclusive ....with IS.   
     Go ahead, beat me up... I know I have always bad-mouthed that in the past... but...   IS works with me, they take my stuff and... man, they are selling it like no one else is!!   
      I'm starting to wonder if its the way to go....     8)=tom

I track sales and earnings.  The closest I have is to mark in red images that have been rejected and in green that have been accepted.

Other sites show the acceptance ratio in their stats, so StockXpert might too.  Not that it matters much for me, as long as sales happen.  :)

You have that right, Maria!!   "as long as sales happen!"   ;) LOL 

I also track rejects and the reason ....as quite often... I just upload the pic later and... it's accepted!  Especially those rejected for...  "too many on site"   "not looking for these images"  "composition"  and more. 

Funny how the same file stinks today, but it accepted and sold a few weeks later...   Go figure!!  That's another reason why I don't get all bummed out about rejection.  Sooner or later, they take most of them anyway... Just goes to show,  it's usually not really the quality of the shot or a techincal problem... it's more who the reviewer is that day and what mood they are in....    LOL  8)=tom
