Just saw something interesting while looking at the sales graph. US sales accounts for nearly 70% of my revenue now. It looks like they also back filled the previous months.

I remember looking at the graph a few weeks ago and only about 10% were from US sales. I wonder if they messed up the reporting metrics previously and just fixed it recently. It kinda make sense that 70% of sales would come from US buyers.

Yeah, I reported this to them 2 days ago asking for confirmation as to whether this is right or not. I use these figures in my tax reports so it will mean I have to change them all before submitting. Still waiting on a reply.

Before this it seemed low but now it seems to have gone the other way.Makes me wonder whether the Total Earnings are correct?!? I asked about this as well. Probably a glitch in the system.

Not for me. I had 4 US sales in the last 30 days. I used to have more during DPC but not lately, which I don't mind. I just end up with double taxation.

Ok, so I checked my sales, and for June, it says that almost 50% of my sales came from US buyers, which is not true, so there's something wrong with US sales reporting...

EDIT: OK, I went and calculated my US earnings for June and they are about 12%.

I would say that if they are correct, then the total earnings is wrong. It's taking a while for support to come back to me so they're either ignoring it or, and more likely, waiting on a support team to investigate it.

I noticed that about 2/3 of my August income comes from US buyers, is this number growing for you too?
In June/July it was about 1/2. Much less before that.

Also, sales are real good, with August being my BME even though I haven't uploaded for a couple of months. Could it be that former DPC buyers finally migrated to Adobe and FT? :D

What I noticed is sudden decrease of sales, by about 40%. As if I'm on some kind of black list or something. In middle of June sales started to be really poor, I thought maybe because of summer, but it goes on and on, with August one of my worst months in year or more.

The adobe stock search box is now integrated into adobe suite. I had a message pop up to tell me about it. Can't remember if it was in illustrator or photoshop.

strange, when ss was down for many days with no images at all searchable,
you would think ft would have recorded you a large boost of sales...

i am surprised that you did not see any strange phenomenon mostly recently..
maybe the ss clients all went to istock instead.

I don't know nothing about images not being searchable. I didn't have any 0 sales at SS. Actualy my Tuesday and Wednesday and Thursday were really good with number of sales.

Adobe/FT very often act like morons absolute beginners and instead of capitalizing on shall we say the hiccups anf glitches of SS and IS and trying to refine their search they are still thinking in terms of just quick profits and margins.
One would have thought a company like Adobe would have a bit more intelligence and know-how but no, not so.

I think they have been capitalizing on the mistakes of IS. They're killing it for me and earnings are higher than SS (mainly because of the search glitch) this month.
