DT!  was once one of the premiere agencies with great credit sales good editing and so on. Sadly the competition is beginning to kill them off. I don't know whats happened there really they keep swapping search as often as SS nowadays and it dont seem to lead anywhere except annoying lots of their exclusives to the point where they quit exclusivity.
I thought DT were always the kings of image search switching certainly they were always the most inconsistent site for me. I always found their reviews pretty fair and liked the "style" sadly though the sales are not there which is what really matters.

Well I am going back some years actually! but around 4/5 years back they were really good and always one of the main four.

Dead? Wish they were.
September 2016 - March 2017: about $360 total, $120 from it was refunded lately, several clips. Right now I OWE 30 bucks to that lazy and incompetent bunch of amateurs.
Stay away from them.

Yup, had 5 4k refunds last week ($105)... Something's not right.

Haha! youre right^^  not only Dt but almost all of them. I recon if we knew what these people in these agencies get up to in order to make quick profits we would probably not upload one single file. I also think there are big reasons why employees at these agencies are asked to sign a document of confidentiality so not to go waffling around to members. :D

After notification about my account termination I got 20 downloads of images and a clip in two days. The usual monthly number of downloads there is 20-30. The worst thing about multiple refunds is that those clips most likely will end up in some free clip torrent collection.

Yay! I made less than two dollars this month with 2000 images the worst performance in four years!

I added quite a large number of images in March and April and this is how they reward me

My RPI this month at DT is around $0.10. Nowadays, it is usually around $0.12 - 0.15.
In the good old days it was between $0.25 and $0.35, I think.

....and mine is $035. I can't understand how it is that everything and anything, from small to Tiff is going for the flat rate of $0.35.

You're confusing RPI with RPD.
My RPD this month is $1.10.

People often complain about slow sales or lack of sales on DT these days. Though is anyone else finding this year particularly bad? I know Ive mentioned that I don't have all that many photos on DT but the interesting thing is the majority of my sales on there were from 2016. 2017 by contrast is just about dead. It's like someone pulled a switch or something. I also notice a number of newcomers to DT with ports of 323 photos, 348 photos, 93 photos etc with 0 sales. Must be so hard being a new contributor there in this current climate.

I stopped uploading to DT a while ago no point. Dead and the rest are dying. 2017 is a car crash year for my business income. I will have to look at part time work if it continues.

I can go weeks and weeks and still see my earnings to be the same. I wish I could just remove everything.

I actually made a sale a few days ago on DT. That's a pretty rare phenomenon these days.

I'm actually having a reasonable month by recent dismal standards...this sees  to happen every few months just to keep my flickering hopes alive. Hard to believe they were once top four.

Getting fed up with their "Old Images With No Downloads" emails. Who cares, they  are absolutely useless.

Dead Dead Dead Dead Dead! :-\

A few months ago I sent them an "old agency with hardly any sales" email and closed my account.

I stopped uploading content several years ago, the policy of deleting files seemed to me very bad. It is impossible to build a portfolio in that way. And I do not see big commercial opportunities in DT
