Royalties guide at Adobe says that :
 
Minimum royalty amounts
The following minimum royalty amounts apply to standard assets licensed under the Adobe Stock Large Subscription (350 standard assets per month or larger). Standard assets include standard photos, vectors, and illustrations.

 Lifetime Licenses*                   Minimum Royalty Amount (per licensed standard asset)
 0-999                                     $0.33
 1,000-9,999                            $0.36
 10,000 and above                    $0.38
*Excludes licenses from the free collection.

How is it possible that I have much $0.27 or $0.29 downloads ? ???

Maybe you need to fill out tax form? If you are in non tax-treaty country, it won't help anyway, 30% of USA sales will be withheld.

I also have some $0.33 and theoretically shouldn't have any income under $0.38 - but there's no way that's because of the tax form, because that's up to date. All this is now no longer transparent and traceable at all agencies.

My tax form is updated. And I'm pretty sure that tax form isn't reason for this.

I've been checking for the last few months.
Like Wilm, I found two 33 cent sales, otherwise nothing under 36 cents. . Your mentioned amounts I could not find with me.

For me (I get 38 min. for subscriptions) the 33 royalties have all been "custom". There was a discussion about this here when the new Creative Express and a pro version were announced - Mat said we get a percentage of what the buyer pays . I asked if there was a minimum and Mat repeated that we get a percentage. Fortunately, so far, there have only been one or two per month at 33

This was a theoretical setup from the "unlimited" subscriptions - it's possible the 33 come from that, but there's no way to know

My spreadsheet tracking (simple) stats now monitors the minimum and maximum royalties in a given month, so I'll see if anything goes below 33

11 sales at 0.33 cents this year with a mixture of custom and subscription usgeage stated. About a 50/50 split.

Other than that higher amounts per download.

Thanks to Joanne's instructions (I pasted my Adobe Stock Activity into a Numbers instead of a Google Spreadsheet and got the photos too) I was able to review all my download activity from Jan 1-April 14.

Of 152 so far, only 4 have been 33 cents, all custom. All my subscription DLs are at least the minimum 36 cents (I lost my standing when I left fotolia, so I haven't hit 10,000 DLs yet). Hope to add another ~250 images this year to reach 1,000 images so I can get there faster (if AI hasn't killed the industry by then).

Average custom license to date is 83 cents, average subscription is $1.00. Average sub is 63 cents if I remove extended licenses.
