I just applied and got 60 pictures accepted within 2 days.  Thats fantastic and I made a sale in my first 2 days which is also very nice, although its only 22 cents.  I'm just wondering how everyone else is doing with this site.

As well, it seems that either they love my photographs that Dreamstime hates, or they are easy acceptances....any thoughts on that?

I find they are easy with acceptances but then I find similar with DT (SS doens't seem to like me though).

They creep along for me.  they have just started per picture sales as well which bring in more money.  Given the ease of uploading, defiantely worthwhile using.

I also think they will get better as that have a good backer.  They have 300,000 photos so they are already big enough to we worthwhile designers looking at them.

In your opinion, would you still consider it a BIG 5?

i think they are progressing.

Their individual sales are a nice addition.  They also seem to be rather sporatic, some days with really good downloads and some days with pretty meager downloads, but every day something... which perhaps points towards that they are getting better... perhaps the good days will soon become more of a norm.

NOt top 5.

Have a look at the threads at the end of each month which show what percentage of sales people get from each site.

How much do you get with subscriptions downloads?

In the craziest twist of events, I decided to upload to 123RF because it was easy.  And I guess I'm happy I did because I'm getting downloads there where I haven't gotten 1 download on Fotolia (even though for everyone else its picking up) and I've gotten only 1 download on DT and BS.  I've been on those for 3weeks.  I've been on 123RF for 3 Days and I've gotten 5 downloads already.  Thats fun.  I'm quite impressed.  Thats with 60 pictures by the way.

I had over 200 pictures but recently pulled them all.  They have a $100 payout minimum and I was creeping along.  It would have taken 4 years to get a payout with 200 pics.  I didn't think it was worth it so I closed my account.  I'm glad you are finding them usefull for you.

Yep getting 50% of non subscription downloads is definately a plus.

The last time I checked I had a 97% acceptance rate with this agency though they once boasted they increase their portfolio by xxx a month.

Definately downloads in surges I suspect if someone finds something they are looking for amongst your portfolio they usually download more pics.

Actually more sales here than Big Stock, Can Stock, Gimme or spm though still some way from that first payout.

Of the sites with low sales (123RF, StockXpert, Canstock, Featurepics), I beleive this has the most potential though StockXpertis currently beating it on sales. Canstock seems dead (refer other post) and I am not sure if Featurepics has the backing or enough photos, although because you can set your own rate, and get higher payouts, it might do ok.

6 Years are a very short time in the life of microstock.  :)

6 Years are an eternity in the life of microstock... it's almost the age of the entire industry.

Anyway, to the 6-year-old question, which is still a valid one:

123RF is a very solid performer for me.  Consistently, almost every month is a new BME.  In terms of consistent growth, they're right up there with SS for me.

Are you kidding??  6 years is a short time in geologic time.  It's an eternity in microstock time.

6 years ago 123rf wouldn't dare to cut royalties for anyone!

Constantly increasing income, about 25% of SS with basically the same port... I started uploading to 123 a lot later. I have no idea whether the port's / images file age 'maturity' on 123 matters at all. Any opinions on that?

If you shot for microstock 10 years ago you might be on the golden age of microstock. When a photo in tradition stock could fetch $300 few were interested in producing for microstock.

Starting 6 years ago like I did it might be a little too late as it began to be very competitive.

Starting now? Well you know the story.

yup, still going strong, barely any rejections, lots of credit sales.

4th best earner for me, below DT and above FT.

They're growing for me also, I might barely notice the commissions cuts next year and if they keep on growing further, well they can just cut again and I still won't notice much change. Yay! Lets just keep reporting back how happy we are to encourage them further  :D
