I'm having a decent day all around, but so far this is my first no sale day at 123 in over 2 months. Just not used to seeing my bottom line stagnant. It will probably be my #2 site for March.

anyone else?

They have improved recently, particularly credit sales. March is my second best month ever with them, and just past the limit for a new payout.

Yep, looks like they may have done an ad campaign or something.

Be sure to set your faved images if you haven't already done so as that will increase sales even more.

Good today and in general. They've bumped FT out of the #3 earner slot this month.

slow, reliable, but an increase in "credit" sales the last week  :)

25% more sales than last month, but 25% less in earnings because of subscriptions  >:(

for me they are at 6th place and BigStock is ahead of them.

Dropping month after month.
Two years ago 150-200 dollar a month was no exception, now i praise myself lucky if i reach 50 dollar a month, despite the growth of my port with more than 2000 high quality/high resolution pictures.

Really! dropped that much with that size of portfolio. I've had only 4 sales up to date with my small portfolio of 234 images---- it doesn't look good.
Actually,my type of images hasn't been doing so well at any of the site's I upload to.

most of 123rf are subs and credit sales at $0.50. 123rf  from all the big 7 they pay the least and also dls are not frequent. When SV, FP or some other site will be in the big 6-7 I am to stop to upload to 123rf. I think the only way we can influence prices is to support the sites that pay more. By uploading to all 10 sites, we encourage some to make money at our expense. Do many people do same two jobs one for $50 an hour and the other for $.50 an hour in hope to earn more? that how we behave by uploading to all the microstock sites.

What hurts 123 is their free photo thing. People are going to take advantage of anything free,thats natural for man to do. They need to offer a better deal for the buyers and contributors.

Ammount of sales is pretty good, the percentage of sub sales isn't (75% for me).

Snapvillage will be a major player but only if they decide to make it happen, which they're presentley hinting at, as for Featurepics... :D :D :D :D

I've been there for over a month now and have 46 images, but no sales so far.  Probably more indicative of me than of 123RF, though.

agree with vphoto before this comment too.

as for free stuff. it only happens if you give them away. if no one does, there won't be free photos. so this one you have to blame the photographers.
