They give with one hand while they take with another. Some people have short memories!

But Shutterstock is take, take, take all the time. In addition to that, don't forget the "free SS images without watermark" sites and their lax attitude to fix things.

I just got a $2.00 and $13.34 sale on Dreamtime today. At the rate SS is going for me that will be three weeks total  sales on SS.

I also did not get any 10% increase on my sales. Looking at the forum it seems to be random. Some people get them, some don't, some get them on some sales, but not on others. A mod there told people to write them with the image ID if they did not get the extra 10%, so maybe some of you want to do that. It's does not seem worth the hassle for 3cent.

I'll wait a little, maybe it's a delay in their reporting system. At Dreamstime it happens a lot the time my balance increases and the time a sale show in the list is very different (but actually this delay is never 4 days long, usually about 1 day)

does anyone know if sales increased over there the past few days? have they picked up more clients as a result of the increased number of people mentioning they will upload there?

Just saw this on Dreamstime's forum:

Quote
Clarification: The announcement we posted says that all purchases made beginning June 1st will award the increased royalties. This means that all plans purchased as of this date will give you +10%. Keep in mind that plans purchased prior to this date may still be active and used by our buyers and for those downloads, you will receive regular royalties. This is why for some sales you have increased royalties, for others not yet. In time, as the current plans get used up, all your sales will show the updated royalties. I hope this clarifies.

So, that explains why none of my sales there this month have earned me any additional 10%.

So this promised increase not only came at a very convinient time, but they also left out a quite important detail from their mail announcement.  ::)

Och, yer jaws trippin you! Youve been negative about everything all week. Lighten up, its the weekend and this is a rare bit of genuine good news. I dont claim to know how Dreamstime code their application but, from the way I would do it, applying a commission change to an existing plan would be a nightmare. They are already paying considerably more than DT, albeit with low volume sales, so look forward to the bonus as you move images across to them. If you already have all your SS images there, what difference does it make to you?

I just tried to process on DT some images that I uploaded about 2 weeks ago but never formally submitted.

No go! I got this message in red at the top of the page:

Error: Due to the massive uploads, you can only make 7000 submissions per week. Please continue the upload process after 7 days have passed since your first submission.

Well, golly gumdrops, I haven't come anywhere close to 7,000 submissions this week. And just a few days ago they accepted a couple dozen that I processed in just a few hours.

DT must be seeing a MASSIVE SURGE in uploads right now.

Dreamstime was the first agency I joined more than a decade ago. I've always felt that I've been treated fairly. It's always felt like a partnership since day one.

Just to follow up I went back tonight and without incident got all my newest images submitted and approved in record time.

Seems like the bottleneck has ended.

I also had a sale today for $4.12, which is an odd royalty that I don't recall ever seeing there before. That's on top of three ELs over the last month, which also never happened to me there before.

Something seems to be happening at DT, and it looks good from where I sit.

During the whole year I read only quite negative comments about Dreamstimes...
And suddenly it would have become the best microscock agency in the world...

Couldn't put this better myself. I love and support that agency, its my first. I was exclusive till they cancelled paying upload bonuses. I still like them but sales there are slow.
