I'm from France, since end of january my earnings collapse. At mid february I have only 1/3 of my "normal" earnings. My number of downloads don't fall a lot, only earnings... and my position is the same as usual.
I'm with them since 8 years and it's the first time I saw that.
I don't know if it's because of the end of Fotolia?
Anybody see the same things?

Same here, its since they basically shut down Fotolia sales have crashed.

I'll be lucky to make the $25 payout minimum.

Yet another duff agency

Same here, January was a good month, even the best month ever
Febrary is close to the worst month ever, just one sale  :)

I appeal to all who have small portfolios, do not spend your time of making conclusions about sales. Spend your time on creating new content and free your mind from sales conclusions, it's too early. Spend your time on analyzing what you have sold, not how much, again it's too early.

This month 1 sale and next month 5 sales, doesn't mean 500% growth. This month 1000 sales and next month 5000 sales, this mean 500% growth!!!

Maybe but the people contributing to this thread have generally had 8-9 years in the business and it is an assumption that they have small ports.

Been with Fotolia/Adobe since 2006, this month is already a BME thanks to a very large single sale, but on average they have been holding steady whilst other sites are trending a slow decline. For me the litmus test is how new submissions perform and with Adobe I've seen sales on new images that compare to Shutterstock ie a few float to the top and gain some momentum selling well whilst many new submissions just sink. The few 'successful images' make it worthwhile to keep uploading.

My new uploads don't sell at Adobe. Not just this month. Need to change strategy.

big sales earl in the month makes this a better month in dollar but without those sales the months would be appalling in terms of sales....i suspect there is something going on with those big sales because i had those in november as others had the same week , and last week again like others wrote in this thread they had the same, all in all 3 99 dollar  sale makes this a good month, but from monday only 2 subs in fotolia...never happened...
ss again two bigger sales makes this a good month but considering the content i added and the work not satisfied...this week practically only subs, the number of download is always the same,,,seems that despite the content and uploading i have always the same level of income and number of downloads...i understand one months 0 and one 1000 but always 500 600 makes me think that something w goes on i  the dark..
canta completely dead, i had good month the first two with just 200 files, near 30 40 sales and a lot of 3,5 dollar commission, then after half december completely dead to the level of can stock, dreamstime seems recovering and breathing again, stock the only one who show strong improvement in the number of downloads but with the rpd of the last months it will be always far behind as and ss. all in all some signs of recovery generally but the work i put on deserved much more.

This February is looking really good so far. Haven't checked my account in over a week and I was pleasantly surprised when I did yesterday.

On track for the best month ever, here! This is great, especially for a February!

I have to take that back. Not so much on track for a new BME, after the recent payment recall. >:(

It's been a very good start to the year. Best January ever, by some margin and heading towards a best February ever. I hope the % increase continues across the rest of the year.
