No. As far as I know I don't have a Fotolia account - except when I applied once when they were offering to match downloads they said that option was only open to people that didn't already have a FT acct. I find the stats available to Adobe contributors to be pretty lacking.

I use Adobe to upload now, but I use Fotolia because I can buy licenses one at a time using my earnings. Coudn't do that through Adobe.

I haven't bothered.  As long as the FT site works I'm too lazy to learn a new one unless there is a clear benefit to more sales.  Sorry.

I use stocksubmitter now to submit to FL. Before I still used FL rather than the new interface. Didn't see the point of using Adobe as the result is the same. Now there's definitely no point, it's all the same at my end.

I still use FT to submit.
If I remember correctly, when the contibutor site of Adobe Stock was launched, one of the issues for me was that you could not set the EL price there. Which leads to an EL price lower than the maximum (which I always use) on FT.
Haven't bothered to look at submitting via Adobe since.
Are there any benefits?

I am synced. I have used the Adobe site for a couple of things. But I am not afraid to admit that I hate learning new things, so I continue to upload through Fotolia, since I know it. If it disappears, I will be forced to use the Adobe site, and I will.

Thanks for checking in Matt.

I prefer to submit using Adobe, but do everything else in Fotolia. Please please please do not shut the Fotolia contributor interface before Adobe Stock is at least on par with it (if not better!).

Eg: stats reporting, quick stats on weekly/daily sales etc

Synced first days it was offered. I answered but there's wasn't an option for - Upload ftp Fotolia, submit with Adobe (much easier to move around keywords and click things, better interface), look at stats on FT because Adobe doesn't offer many of the details or information.

Using both is still necessary because they don't offer the same choices for us.

I have sync'd my Fotolia account with Adobe Stock but I don't see an answer that covers my usage.

 I use Fotolia for sales stats - because Adobe Stock has almost nothing in that area. I use Adobe Stock for uploading and submitting because it's much easier.

If the Fotolia back end for contributors is going away, I hope there's a plan to do something on the Adobe Stock site to provide sales stats (beyond the current balance and a list of sales, which I realize is already there)

Agree with others, stats on Fotolia, thats we need. And subcategories, I use this too.

Btw I am emerald now, this little green sign there.. happy happy  :)

I use the Fotolia contributor portal, haven't even bothered to check Adobe even once. Actually Fotolia is one of best working contributor portals in the industry, the only thing I don't like about it is the the ridiculously small thumbnails when i'm looking through the list of my images. But I like the overall page design and functionality, best stats page among all sites, sensible layout. I also like the fact that it haven't really changed throughout the years. I just hate most of nowadays' page design where everything takes up a lot of space, you have to scroll a lot and still seeing not too much information, etc.. Looks like  most sites are designed for phones

No I didn't. Didn't know if it was an option, if anyone asked me if it could be an option, I would say yes, but I don't care to check. I don't know what would be the benefit of it, and usually those things are irreversible. Which means if something in programming goes belly up, it is more work and wasted time for me. I am not paid by time but by results, which means I go by if it aint broke don't fix it.

Synced as soon as possible, but I never use it. I use Fotolia for stats, more convenient than Adobe Stock.

I found that my sales have increased since syncing. I still submit through Fotolia as I found some issues with the Adobe submission system. Of course Fotolia isn't great either. Maybe I should see if Adobe has improved since some people in these comments seem to prefer it.

I have synced and use Adobe Stock now, it has better interface, however I really hate to order the keywords manually. It would be much better if this was no longer important. Please do something about it. Photographers have better things to do than wasting their time with keyword reordering.

My sales have increased without syncing.  I think that's just Adobe doing a better job of getting sales - more than twice what they ever were before Adobe and increasing every year despite not uploading too much.  Hope they keep it up!

Don't your keywords show in the order you have them in the EXIF saved in the photo? Mine do

When you go to the adobe stock website and click on the button of "sell photos", the website will ask you if you already have an account on fotolia. and if you do, it will offer you to sync the accounts by clicking on a "sync" button.

Honestly I am not sure what benefits we get from doing it but I synced anyway :)

 -I've just got an extended license sale of a file where the EL price is set to 100 credits. According to my ranking I should get 37% yet i've only got 16.5 credits. How is that possible?
