A completely pointless post. If you have 2 images with DT, that's pretty impressive. If you have 10,000 images with DT, it's terrible.....

I am $1.92 $1.22 $0.87 shy of my next payout - let's hope they stay in business long enough to get that over $100 :)
@Jo Ann, After two months on $99.48 I've just had a sale of $5.47 to take me over the threshold. Phew! Hope you get there soon!

Congratulations on that accomplishment!!

I'm currently $2.04 short of payout (up about $3 in the last couple of weeks). No telling how long that last 2+ bucks will take.

It was during few days or weeks. They decided without prior notice to contributors that "confidencial info" accounts would not be confidencial anymore and they simply displayed real names of authors. After contributors protests they are going back on their decision, but the damage is done.

This is illegal here. Could be fined with a lot of money.

Amazing.

And as the arcicle suggested, (September 28, 2016)

Now its time for Dreasmtime to rebuild their trust with their contributors, and maybe find more effective ways to increase their sales.

Guess they failed on the first one, dunno if at least managed to achieve the second.

this agency is going bankrupt soon. it's clear. like 123rf and cannock...probably deposit will manage to be alive some more here...then will be the time for ss esp and adobe...soon there will be no business in micro stock...it's pretty clear.

That's not new - it was a credit sale (a rare bird these days) as opposed to subscription. You can read about the various royalty percentages (based on how much an image has sold) here:

I seem to do okay on Dreamstime.  Enough that I feel it's still worth it to upload there.  But 123RF seems to be rather stagnant and their upload process is super time consuming.

Until last year, I was able to get a payout every month (sometimes even twice a month)
Now I can only got payed every other month.

I hope they'll find a way to recover and become competitive again.

Amazingly RF is doing better for me the last couple of months but from a cliff edge drop about a year back. I don't find their ftp uploading time consuming.

I really dont see what the problem is or why Dreamstime is supposedly doomed all of a sudden.

Yes, Dreamstime is a small and kind of low-earning agency. Yes, it can take a while until you reach payout. So? Their upload process is painless and speedy, their average RPD isnt so low that I feel ripped off (hello, 123rf!), they pay without delay or fuss when you reach the threshold.

For me, they have been a slow but steady earner and as long as the abovementioned criteria dont change, then Ill keep my portfolio there & keep uploading when I have the time. Ill worry about them going belly-up if it actually happens.
