Well, it really is getting a bit tedious now.
Every time I log into BigStock I'm seeing the same old earnings balance.

I've had 4 sales there in 2 months - earnings have really sank there for me!
Is there some explanation?

actually, I'm doing ok there. It seems to go in fits and starts but I'm getting payouts regularly now.

Don't think I'm making any more at Shutterstock.

I have managed to get only 30 images accepted since August and have Not One Single Sale.  And, is there any way to see if my pics are being seen? 

My BigStock enthusiasm is waning wrapidly.   :-[

Number 3 for me. A steady earner.

Also steady for me.  5th this month (though far behind StockXpert, IS, DT and FT).

6th spot for me, and growing steadily. Will soon pass StockXpert.

If I extrapolate the statistical curve fitted to my sales data at BS I will probably have to pay them in a few months.  ;D.  With regular uploads and more than 1150 images online it is very disappointing. Fortunately DT, FT and StockXpert grows almost exponentially leaving BS in a distant 7th position.

On BigStock if you mouse over an image you get a larger view. No need to actually click on the image for a larger view. So view counts on BigStock mean nothing.

Sales: The economy is in a slump so I would guess that most photo buyers are using what they have in stock rather than buy more at this time. My sales for October are less than a third of last year at this time.

I'm sure you know that Nature, Senics, Artsy shots are the slowest sellers of all on any site. Your images are very nice, give them time and upload more, lots more anything less than a thousand images on line is a very small portfolio.

Hope this helps!

BS is a steady performer for me. they often rank second in monthly sales. I do a lot of nature and non people pics and they do well.

BME for October. BigStock isn't always consistent but sales and downloads have improved over the last 8 months I've been with them. OK with that :)

same here, consistently improving over the last two years. Still a low earner but progressing nicely.
