Dismal this month. Worst for years.


So it isn't just me!! Had the worst month since september 2009. What's going on at 123RF? Used to make some decent money here.

"It would mean a great deal to us if you could tell us why youve stopped shopping at 123RF.com :("

Received a survey request from 123rf this morning. I clicked on the link, but it's clearly targeted at buyers not contributors.

I don't have a buyer account there so I'm not sure why I received this - I did find it interesting that their incentive was something that doesn't cost them anything (free month with StockUnlimited) versus a discount or incentive to shop at 123rf. If you wanted to get buyers back to 123rf, why wouldn't you let them shop there for free as the "thank you"?

I thought the list of questions was a bit strange - starting out with asking for my "UID" - they don't use that terminology anywhere on the site. They use "Username/Email" on the English version of the site if you go to log in (and I assume that's what they want). They might also have pre-filled that out with the e-mail they sent the invitation to so as to save me a step.

It always bugs me when there's no "other" option, especially when the list of choices doesn't look complete to me - for example, why not have an option for "my company purchased a subscription at another site". Let me tell them why I don't purchase there any more versus assuming they already know all the possible reasons.

The fact that they're doing a survey suggests that they're seeing some fall off in business (it's also possible that they're just supremely attentive to customers, but then I've no idea why they'd be sending that e-mail to a contributor who never bought anything in that case)

Anyone else get one of these?

The last two month were unusually bad for me. Seems to me, I'm note alone!

Just checked.  For the whole first week of November I've made less than a typical day at 123.  Must be one helluva search engine shakeup!  Congrats to those seeing sales increases.

October was good thanks to some video sales, but November starts off horribly. 5 sales in 10 days and 5 days in a row without a sale.

This year average seems almost same as 2015 but this year is more unstable.

Last 2 months are awful. October - 6 sales!!!, November - as for now 3 sales. It's going down since July. Before - every month above 30. This is sick. Videos and photos waiting for review for a very long time.

re sales - same old same old. No rise nor fall for 12 months. Just trundles along...upload/no upload, no change...

re survey/sales - I wanted to buy a few images the other day using my credits (it's a long, tedious story). But could not find out how to convert. So 123 lost the sales, another site gained them.

With the old interface they had about a year where we'd be paid at the minimum level for the first few days of each month and then they'd figure out our actual percentage royalty and adjust all the numbers. I can only assume that they really aren't trying very hard to fix this "beginning of the month" problem.

Either that, or their software people are all terrible :)

Or both! Flakiest site out there which is quite an achievement
