I am getting a little concerned with 123RF, my earnings there were increasing month after month, but this month got only a sale for 0.36$..

How are you doing?

I can do better.  >:(
My balance is currently -97$, I lost about 170$ this month.
Apparently it has something to do with deleting images.

123 has pretty much always sucked for me. It actually seems a tiny bit better lately.

Feb sales started out strong (avg 5 downloads each day), but yesterday and today = 0 downloads.  Still, if I take the total for Feb 1 thru 10 and multiply it by 2.8 (28 days in Feb) I get a figure that will be my 2nd or 3rd best month on 123RF.

After 1/3 of the month I noticed following:
1. SS my best agency got 75% which means all others must under perform cause usually it has around half.
2. 123RF and DT are below normal
3. StockXpert and FT seem to have usual result
4. IS is usually pathetic but this month it has more then any of 4 others. It could be just one time thing and they will eventually catch up.

I usually pay more attention at 2/3 of the month when my prediction formula shows bad results.

Just saw your numbers and you've always sold very very few images a month on both sites (DT and 123RF).  Don't mean to offend but with those numbers you can't really compare one month to another.  :-\

For about a week, I have had a problem logging in to 123RF using Internet Explorer. If this problem is affecting very many other people including buyers, that might be affecting sales.

Don't get angry! I know about your sales. I have visited your blog.  You publish your earnings every month!

if that's true why have you said that I cannot compare month to month???.. I can, it could be nothing comparing to you and other, but it is what I am having, simple as that, in my stats I can say that 123RF and DT aren't keeping the usual sales! END

Luis, please accept my apologies if I have offended you. I never meant to do it.

I just think that such a small difference ($1, $3) between one month and another is meaningless.   It's simply not enough to consider your earnings are increasing.  Let's be realistic.

For example, in the last 4 months you have sold an average of 10 licenses every month at DT (according to your charts).  With those numbers, it would be no surprise if this month you sell only a couple.  There is not much distance from 1 to 10.

But, as I told you, please accept my apologies if I have offended you.  It's nothing personal.   I just think those numbers make no difference.

No he's not. With barely 86 sales on DT, you have nothing to say about numbers. It"s just statistical noise. Sorry.

You don't have to apologize for facts. And you can't please everybody. Blogs of low earners are just intended to get referrals anyways.

Hi there

Good old 123!

I earned $75.26 in January, of which they paid $51.88 today.

Anyone has a similar problem, or is it a mysterious glitch?

This month I've earned $26, which puts me on target for the usual $65 per month.

All fun and games

Exactly. With such low sales one can't really say anything about numbers. It's nonsense.

I won't accept your comments once I don't agree on them, my blog is my own diary, I have my readers and friends, I don't blog to get referrals, I am working to build a portfolio, first you look into things then you comment PROPERLY!.. If I am doing the blog for referrals why have I got almost 270 at IS??? give me a break, be real! this is the last time I will create a thread once you guys are a bunch of frustrated guys!!

Relax Luis,   

Yes, you are free to do whatever you want with your numbers and your blog, but we are also free to express our opinions.    If you don't like to read comments you don't agree with, then you shouldn't participate in any forum. Not good for your health!  ;)

After deleting some pics I noticed that some of my revenue had disappeared.
After I mailed support they answered disappearing revenue could have something to do with deleted pics and that they are working on it.
Anybody have similar experiences?

Yeah, made me look, not that it matters.

I just lost $2.10 and haven't had a download or any changes in months. Oh except deleting all my pictures?  :D

This is the kind of stuff that makes me crazy. They (being small stock agencies, not just 123RF) take away credits, lose things, money vanishes from accounts. Some of these places run like kids with a peach crate on the corner selling photos. Absolutely unprofessional. Sites vanish for months because of "server problems" yeah right. Two months to make payments at another one. Come on, and they are supposed to be representative agencies? More like a comedy of errors, but it's not funny.

I signed up and understood the agreement, but agencies that bank on people never making payout, or refuse to close accounts and pay off, are unethical. Everyone noticed that Snap paid everyone, and Lucky-O paid people who made a request. StockXpert closed and you can claim your funds. Meanwhile some other places, who are still in business, won't give you your earnings when you close an account. Contract or not, it's still unethical.

Oh by the way, for people who have opted out of ThinkStock because of the low 25c payments, have you closed your 123RF account? To be precise, the $0.22 commission is basically for subscription downloads.  ???
