Yes FT is doing well. The higher subscription values made them my 2nd highest RPD after IS.
Overall the earnings are not comparable to SS and IS, but still miles ahead of DT and the rest.

now the question is- are more buyers flocking to FT due to the DPC program?

Nope FT is as usual appallingly bad I'm afraid and there are enough DPC/FT fanboys out there squealing their praise  ::)

Makes you wonder if FT have been recruiting cheerleaders  ;D

FT came fourth from the bottom of the heap pour moi  :(

Why post at the end of a 7 year old thread?

I'm a little behind on my bookkeeping. My July 2007 Fotolia numbers were terrible. Did anybody else have the same?  ;)

I know July 2014 isn't over yet, but I have yet to match my July 2007 sales at Fotolia.

To me, it's appropriate that it's a 7 year old thread, because my BME at Fotolia was over 5 years ago.

I had a record month with FT, first time EVER: $0 and I couldn't be happier. Thanks for the email, Chad.

Considering that I deleted half of my portfolio at FT, I'm not expecting a record month any time soon. ;)

Fotolia has made a change in their search. So many german contributors has a big decrease income. Good for international contributors, bad for us germans. There are no more visitors at fotolia there is only a big redistribution of income.

I have a big decrease at FT of 75% this month.

I'm having a strong month there - not a BME but decent.  Getting a good number of 5 and 7 credit sales so it isn't DPC.  Hope it continues.

on one hand it was nice to see the avatars from FreezingPictures and especially sharply_done (R.I.P) again on the other hand it felt such disrespectful to see a newbie bury out a seven year old thread just to rave about one of the most unfair players and certainly one of the grave diggers of this industry (at least from a contributor side) just because of the usual  chance in their search algorithm.

I'm a newbie, indeed! No shame in that!
I guess I made an honest mistake, while reading these topics on my phone: with those small fonts, I didn't realize it was an old one. I usually avoid to start new topics if the same subject is already open.

Now, what about being disrespectful? Disrespectful to whom?

Maybe because of the search algorithm as you want to believe, maybe because of other reasons, my small FT port, with only 172 files, brings me 73c RPD for the past 7 months (topping $200+/month, lately). Compare this to 70c on SS or 51c on IS! The fact is that FT pays me better/download than any other agency.

I fail to see where is the disrespect and now I wonder why should I respect aggressive post like yours.

I am just a rookie but so far my income is 87% up to last year at this time in point (All sites included) - my production is up by 25% as well thus reflecting the increase in sales.  Only my 3rd year in the business therefore nothing surprising about my sales increasing.  Maybe around my 7th year I will see a decline in the business...
