 ;D

Actually my Oct. was pretty good, but that was a bunch of ODs and SOD on SS. While IS wiped thousands of my files in the new improved ESP version, because they were competing editorial with Getty. AdobeStock is climbing and steady. (or actually stock.adobe.com)

Finally something good, best month in 2,5 years on Shutterstock, 2nd best ever. I don't have exact account of this data, but I'm pretty sure it was the highest RPD ever. $1.12 for only photos, $1,55 overall including video sales.

Fotolia, my 2nd earner, doing fine.

On other sites I don't really check monthly stats, just yearly...

Microstock total Adobe not bad. SS not all that!. DP. brilliant close to 4 figures. Traditional-agencies close to 6K they totally outshine Micro-stock! and I would probably do wise in deleting  some 6000 files from micro and shove them into the traditional agencies as RF's.

Amazingly my BME too beating Oct 2012, (unless you count the month I got a big payout for Veer's Dash for Cash)

Sadly it was mostly due to a number of big sales at Alamy, so probably not part of a trend. P5 and Canva also contributed nicely and Adobe had a decent showing. It was an ok month at SS for the new norm, but 1/3 of they heyday there and unlike in the past when it was reliably my highest earning site, it was #3 this month.

It was my BME for 4 different sites and none of the decent earners were super low.

Decent month, but nothing to write home about.
Adobe/Fotolia made all my income of this month in one crazy day with a deluge of 4k sales, absolutely nothing the rest of the month (I had the stupid idea of uploading photos there and it killed my sales)
Shutterstock was below par, but as always in these case, a huge day on the 31st put me exactly at my allocated monthly income
Pond 5 quite good
VB missing in action

4 figures on SS, but below expectations.
Interesting to observe that SS is only accounting for 30% of my total revenue, down from more than 50%, not very long time ago.

SS - 2nd BME. A great month boosted by a number of large SODs.
Adobe Stock - BME. They have become my best earner and I'm loving the consistency. Though I do feel like I'm close to hitting my ceiling.
123RF - A good month. Still a big drop from earlier in the year.

$.0000 or $0.000 or $00.00 or $000.0 or $0000? LOL just joking. But technically mine was five figures ;)

Funny! To use your numbering standard: 6 figures with 1 comma and 1 dot  :P

Worst month since 2015. Strange as all my other months have been much better than before.
Anyway, new month, new sales !

A fairly mediocre month SS doing quite well but no big sales, fotolia suffering from periods of going AWOL RF123 coming back from the doldrums. For the first time in years big fat zero from Canstock. If Istock is in line then pretty average kind of month.

Tiny port, very good on SS, just a bit shy of excellent September. Even FT picked up a bit, since I have very sporadic sales there.

Below par, but still managed a somewhat reasonable 350 downloads from SS and AS picking up, especially with the passport composites I've been putting together.

Anyway, most of my best stuff going to my Stocksy application (all in).

Still pending sales report from Robert Harding...bunch of sales on there.
