Made payout for the first time a few days ago. Not sure if I should cash out or leave it there and let it keep accumulating.

I guess I'll cash out because the USD went up significantly. Another sale: now it's $99.91.

So, only a few more months, and you'll be able to cash out...

I'm on 50$ until next payment.. I believe that I'll catch the next election here in Romania, meaning another four years until I'll reach 100$...

I was stuck at $99.xx for a whole month. Hopefully you'll see payout next month.

Whats the point of leaving it. Never know, someday you might be hacked or sth...

Anway, DT is totally dead for me.

Took me too years to get there. Not sure when is the next time I'll make payout again. It's only $100. If they get hacked, it's not a big loss.

Two years!! In that case it might take me ten, haha!! What size portfolio do you have? I have 450 but have been slowing adding to it. They really should reduce the payout figure, even Alamy have reduced theirs.

I have 70 images at DT. I haven't been uploading to DT much and focused all my efforts on FT, SS and 123RF. I feel like 30 minutes spent on the other agencies is 10 times more valuable than 30 minutes spent on DT.

I stopped uploading almost entirely when they started their strange rejections years ago.  The decline in earnings has been steady and they are doing better than FT for me.

It was easy to predict the decline in DT when they started rejecting images that were selling very well on other sites.  I have no idea why they did that, it seemed obvious that buyers can decide for themselves what they want and leaving that decision in the hands of low paid reviewers was madness.  All it did was annoy contributors, who had lots of their rivals to upload to.  Then they cut commissions and that was the only thing that might of kept me uploading.

If they went back to 50%, they might still have a chance.  If it works for Pond5 and Alamy, there's no reason why they couldn't make it work as well.  There's an opportunity now a lot of us are going to be leaving istock but I don't think DT would be brave enough to take it.

Here's my latest sale after I cashed out and close account two years ago. .08, that's 8 cents. They don't answer how I could have a sale on a closed account. Reminds me why I dropped them.

How do you know, you had a sale if you don't have account there?
