We still have a few more days in the month, but I just checked and my download total is the same as for March - in units. The dollars are about $20 less for April though - a big part was that March had one of those 100MB upsizing deals for a commission of $17.50 to me.

I haven't been uploading to them since they announced the poisonous credit scheme for next year's royalties, so at some point I expect that lack of uploading will make a dent in sales, but so far things seem to be chugging along at the same slow-ish pace.

Looks to me like you had a 25% increase over last year.

April has been slow at all the Middle Tier and Low Earner sites particularly 123RF.

123rf is doing great for me this year. It has gone right up with between 50 and 100% more each month compared to the same month last year and this month is a BME.  I  used to make 15 times more at fotolia than 123 but with fotolia dropping so much and 123  going up  I don't even make 3 times more there now. Exactly the same is happening with bigstock.

After about six years of complaining about no growth on 123, I have been pleasantly surprised at the last couple of months.  March was a BME there for me, nearly doubling my typical earnings, and April, while not as good, is on track for second or third BME. 

A couple of those upsizes JoAnn mentioned have helped a lot.

i've had improved sales at 123 in the last 6 months, with  3 & 4th BME - april was a bit lower, but still much higher than  last 4 years

Very close to March amount at the moment, which was BME for me. 123RF still rocks, even with the long weekend and all!

123 RF has been doing ok for me lately  - at least better than last year.

Now nowhere near where they need to be to keep their status up, so they are definitely not performing well enough - although we have been assured that they will - somehow I am skeptical.

To give them credit though, they have gotten the review times down, even if the last review was the complete opposite of SS (everything SS accepted 123 rejected and vice versa). I guess it diversifies my portfolios.

Me too. And sales have been falling faster than a rock down the cliff. Only CS probably brings me even less. They used to be my #4 for a few months. Now they're #9 or something

Not quite BME, but close. A good month.

Just a hiccup for you, Luis.  It will bounce back in May.  It is very cyclic for me, too....plus/minus $30 a month sometimes.

Very pleased with how 123RF has been performing lately.  Each month is a new BME, and April is no exception... it's defying the trend of sales being down on all the other sites.  April 2012 is up 10% vs March 2012 and it's up 300% vs April 2011.  I know people aren't happy with 123 these days, but as I watch ISP, FT and now DT posting week sales, 123 seems to be the big rising star for me right now.

not unhappy (I guess only for the cut to 45%) sales are nice, this month is just so weird there.. at least it is the only agency
