  Hadn't  done  much  because  of  health  issues.  Had  2  sales  this  year  --reg  and  editorial.

Hope your health issues are sorted out now Dan.  :)

I've been there.  It sucks.

Doing quite good there. I upload mostly vectors. Rare rejections, pretty good sales. It is my no. 5 earner currently. But things there are slowly getting better.

Growing quite nicely for me. Also wondering how that price cut is going to affect revenue.

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

No one knows what sites sales will do over the next few months, so no one can be sure how the commission rates is going to pan out (inclusive of 123RF).

Hopefully, if the sales increase did not help us along on their new scale as much as they predicted by the end of the year, logic will prevail on their side and they will revise the scale (or stand the chance of loosing a lot of good contributors).

Due to the current uncertainty, I think they are also waiting to see what is going to happen and will therefore not react to any outcries at this stage.

They could have waited till November to inform us of the change, but has selected (for whatever reason) the early warning choice, which is causing them a lot of flack and will hopefully not compel them to keep to the rates if change is required in the end.

They rank 6th out of 9 agencies for my portfolio. High acceptance rate, decent amount of sales. Their RPD is being helped by the new single image sales, but overall I do much better with Veer. I know this doesn't add up with the overall poll results, but I get an overabundance of EL's through Veer.

yes sales are growing but most of my sales are subs or s  - the comissions are quite pathetic - and they should lower the $100 payout to 50 -  with the pennies we earn takes forever to get payout

Same here, they are number 6 for me. June has been a BME but
I'll never rise above contributor level 2 / 35% commision which means a 15% cut.

Interesting that most of my ELs have been on Veer. It's number 3 for me right after SS and FT.

You can set your payout to $50  ;)

Very slow for me.
I've decided not to upload some of my good sellers there because of the insufficient watermark(It's very sad). Especially with objects isolated on black. :(

Going from 50% to 35% is a 30% cut.

Very up an down sales for me - a decent month followed by very slow for a month or two.  I'm not seeing the big increase the were forecasting. 

I did some calculations based on my average monthtly credits x 12 months and I would have needed to instantly increase my portfolio by a factor of 6x and they would have needed to increase the sales by a factor of 3x in order for me to achieve the credits needed to keep the current commision rate.  :( 

My portfolio is small and I'm working to increase it for now, but will reassess at the end of the year.  They are currently my #4 earner but that will be certain to change after the new system is implemented if they don't make any changes.

Oh yeah... pardon my math!

My 123RF sales have increased quite a bit over the past couple of months. Still only about 15% of what I'm doing at SS, but still very much worth my time. If sales stay on track, I should be able to make the 45% tier when commissions change.

That's great. Seems like they're growing so much giving 50% to everyone. It just seems so right that we should reward them by giving them more.  ;)

Think you made the point a few posts back. So no positive comments till 2013, right? Do not upload further to punish them? Yes, why not? I am sure I can take the 30% drop in revenue from my second largest seller with a smile for the rest of the year. 

Let us not be reasonable and see how things pan out over the next six months, till possible implementation. Come on, take the lead and delete all your images right now and teach them a lesson....  ;)

The point I was making. Being able to reach 45% isn't really a positive if you're on 50% now.

We're not there yet mate, I'm sure all of us will take measures when the time comes, 123RF might even adjust the threshold.

They are still doing very good for me with lots of credit sales and consistent reviews.
Does that make me blind for what's coming, of course not mate ;)

Take care

  just  this  morning  had  2  accepted  --  1  rejected  but  accepted  as  editorial.  Going  very,  very  slow  at  it  but  acceptances  are  up.  (small  port  --  37  regular  pics  and  3  editorial)  Sales  will  be  slow  with  such  a  little  port  but  as  i  said  -  taking  my  time  and  being  very  selected  with  submissions.

  Have  42  so  far.  Working  to  increase  port.  3  sales  even  with  small  port.  Hope  as  it  grows  more  sales  will  come.

I was having decent steady sales there, but then all of a sudden they all stopped 3 weeks ago, and nothing since.

Comparing first 11 days of July 2012 to 2011, I'm up more than 200%.

As far as I'm concerned, SS and 123 are the only sites on a great roll these days.  Most the other major players are either flat, posting minimal gains or in the toilet.

I was also a big fan of 123RF for years but lately it pretty much sucks, we are over 1/3 of July and I have 6x less than in June and June was like 30% down from May.. doesnt look healthy for me..
