Are they one of your 9 sites or just an observation? I closed 123RF long ago.

They keep cutting our commission, while saying they will be selling more, which is utter rubbish, personally I believe that they are ripping us off.

I've basically stop submitting to them because it takes 6 months to get anything reviewed. Cuts to earnings % means I have no incentive to supply them with any content.

I wish they had spent their time creating new customers and improving search than cutting % and review staff

They've been almost too consistent for me. Barely any ups or downs month after month.

They can't take on the big guys, so I don't see much upside with with 123RF. I think they've been cutting review staff which is probably why images don't get reviewed for months. I just hope they continue to remain consistent.

Did they ever have review staff? Small time operation, minimum staff or employees, because that costs money. This has always been a shoestring agency. What's more of a surprise to me, is how they have stayed up and ahead of the rest of the small agencies that are barely surviving. Maybe they do have something going on?

When I see that they are double DT according to people here, that's a compliment to the returns some people make. Maybe I'm all wrong, but no matter, I'm also long gone.

Yes the appear to be the second best of the "also rans" by that chart not for though and they are probably the ones that tanked for me the most. At one time they were a "nice little earner"

For me 123rf is better performing than Bigstockk or Dreamstime. But I have images pending since July last year, heh.

Strangely enough this month is shaping up to be the best for a long time. Meanwhile Big stock is dead.  For small fry like me the monthly swings on the small sites can be quite dramatic. All my submissions are up to date.

It's sad, but 123rf is earning 1/10th of what it did for me during the years 2012-2014.  I stopped uploading about 3-4 years ago, and I'm seeing dwindling returns across the board, as one would expect.  But I fear there's a lot more to it than ceasing uploads. 

At some point, you have to ask yourself how much your time is worth? Kicking a dead horse or pissing in the wind are two things I can't afford to do.  I still live off of my royalties, and it's been a blessing having them as I transition to and grow a different eCommerce business.  The only agencies it even makes sense to even upload to for myself (should the mood strike me) are Shutterstock and Adobe, with Depositphotos being a distant third. 

I log into this forum so search for stupid crap like "123rf tax forms" to see why they haven't given out the 1099s on time again (shocker)

One day he says one number, the next another, he just makes up things and can't remember or doesn't care. Last month he said he was down to 5 or 6, last week was 8. Don't wait for an answer, he's not going to get pinned down to one number if he can keep changing what he makes up.
