I've just had a XXL Tiff sale for $10 and commission received was $2,50.

Wasn't CS rated at 50%?

One more small timer screwing us up? I really wouldn't have a problem dropping them, they're the lowest of the lowest. If it wasn't for the distribution sales, earnings would be almost non existant

I don't know anymore wut, it's getting worse by the day is it, I feel more like a babysitter lately (if you know what I mean bro)

They'll probably come up with some kind of new discount offering or something, I'm curious.

One eye always looking for the sheat they might do? Well you probably need both MS to spot everything, but then again, who'd do the shooting, retouching, keywording...

Probably some pathetic spin like 123RF put out

You get 50% but the buyer gets a 50% discount on credit sales instead of instant sales:

50% discount on those pathetic prices? Their business must be going down the drain to put out such desperate measures.

I can't wait to delete all my accounts and go exclusive ASAP, especially at non top 4 sites, constant disappointment and/or hassle

Yeah if they are going to keep selling at this rate I'm out too, already stopped uploading a while ago.

I haven't even got to my first payout, after one year, feels more like a hobby with these agencies.
Also what happened to "we pay the best commission out there"?
I make more then 25% on all other sites so currently this is the worst commission I have received?!

Anyway, back to work, later.

No worries Wim.

I don't mind this micro.  They're actually one of the very few (if not the only one) that hasn't p1ssed me off as yet.  Pricing could be better but for me, there's a lot worse out there than this one.  They're transparent and I know exactly what is going on.  They're pricing is a little on the cheap side but at least they're paying us half of what they receive.  I haven't thought about them too much but I'm going to keep my eye on the ratio between 'instant' and 'regular' sales from now on.  I just went back to see when they introduced the 'instant' sale and it was November 11.

Here's the breakdown of the split between the various types since then.

Distribution Reg & ELs10%
Distribution Subscriptions4%
Instant Sales52%
Regular Credit Sales24%
Standard Subscription Sales   10%


Most of my credit sales are 'Instant'.  Subscription sales in total are only at 14% which is bearable and the Fotosearch sales, which include ELs are reasonable. 

Low subs and decent Fotosearch sales keep my RPD above $2.

Anyone else seeing a similar result?

My earnings are slowly increasing.  Over $60 in May, beating Fotolia for the first time.
