  I don't have a problem with iStock, its just they don't accept a lot of my images for "Not what we are looking for"  I mostly shoot architectural shots, as that is my field of work.  iStock seems to have plenty of those images I guess.

That blows my mind, Moonb007...  The site is loaded with arch shots.... seems to me keeping the pool fresh with new images would be a wise course. Not just check the counter.... Hey we have 200k arch shots, dont need any more, hit delete.

 Just goes to continue the fact that there is no figuring the whys and whats of their thinking. 8)=tom

I think it just depends on the review.  I normally submit in batches of 5 to 10 and sometime all of them will go through...or all of them will be rejected for "not what we need"  I forget the exact wording.  The other day I submitted 4 building images and a paper heart...the paper heart was the only one that they took.

I've never had a problem with this site until today, all sales from May, July and September have been cancelled and my account has a negitave balance. I've sent an email so maybe I'll hear something from them, maybe not if what other has said about customer support is true.

I don't think it's anything serious. 123rf has had quite a few problems lately displaying the right balance and statistics.

GA, on the contrary, it is becoming a very serious matter since this same problem is happening almost every month or every other month...I know I've got better things to do with my time than getting aggravated, and wasting my time emailing them over the same problem, just to see it happen again on the following month.  :-\

I totally agree. What I meant is that the data shown is not correct and does not reflect reality. At least for me it comes to the right amount at least sometimes. I believe they should fix this reporting error as soon as possible.

I don't know what is wrong now at 123rf.
My first vector rejections since one year for low commercial value.....BLEHHHHHHHH
Definitely something is going on besides disapairing earnings.

For what it's worth I like 123rf, they do close to DT and FT and I have never had a problem with them.  I have more images up on 123 than either DT or FT because I would rather support them.

Isn't it crazy the way everyone's experiences are so wildly different?  This year so far I have made 87% more on DT than 123.

They definitly playing some game with us. 15 from 30 bucks disappeared from my account, possibly due to fraud and refund and blah-blah-blah, but since all my earnings are at least two months old, I assume they investigating old cons cases. Now I'm just looking for quick way to delete my portfolio on 123

I have never had any issues with my earnings nor had any refunds at 123rf, sales are good for me month on month, I have more images with them, images others deem not stock worthy and they sell. Payment is prompt around the 14th 15th of each month without me having to make any request or chase for it

It seems quite a few ppls on this board are less fortunate and experiencing all kinds of issues with them, guess I am the lucky few. The site is getting a lot of bashing as a result perhaps unnecessarily and 123rf should definitely look into the problems reported here and rectify them quickly?

According to Alex at 123 they went through a big backlog of refunds, fraud etc. and most of them were deducted over a week's time.  After they clear the backlog it will be back to only the occasional deduction. 

Of course I hate having money taken away, but at least they are being straightforward in accounting for it.

Hi there

My experiences have all been positive. Always paid on time, and with one hiccup when they had problems, which was corrected in the next payment.

For what it's worth it brings in circa  $75-100 per month, and accepts 99% of my pictures.

Growth is very small month on month, but as least it's going in the right direction.
