I have my portfolio at several agencies. As far as I can tell after one year and about 1000 illustrations online,

Shutterstock is doing best for me and increasing month by month. Dreamstime was doing well, but new images are doing really bad since two or three months. Fotolia likes my vectors and accepts everything, but customers do not seem to like vectors a lot, my guess: as there is no zoom function for eps or svg, but for jpg customers tend to buy jpg. Stockxpert is doing better every month but unforunately are giving up the cooperation with jupiterimages and photo com, IStock is for sure doing well, but as they don't like my stuff, I can not tell. I would like Fotolia to catch up, they were doing best when i started but sales went down in the last weeks, hopefully changing in the future. Then there are several others but not good enough to mention.

Is that more or less your experience, or do you have some other opinions.

I agree with: FT accept nearly all what is called vector, but sales are bad. Also agree to your point that this depends on "non-zoom-function". Fotolia management never understand what a vectorimage is. They tried to improve vectorsales but it seems like nobody told them what a vector really is. Same problem as most photographers have.
But if you don't understood your product you can't sell it....salesman-wisdom first lesson.

Istock also accept all my vectors but ...still leveled at AI 8.0 i prefer most to pimp them up and sell them as pixel-images at FT.

True, FT has to overthink their vector policy if they want to catch up in that field. I mostly mix, most I upload to FT are vectors but in between I try to integrate some jpgs to get a comparison of what is selling.
