DP. brilliant close to 4 figures.

That's incredible.  I made $50, lol.

LOL good one.

Poor overall.  BS worst in five years, CS worst in two years.  SS, DP and 123 equal to what they averaged in 2012.  Alamy OK, Canva about 20% of what they were 1.5 years ago but still number 2 after SS.  DT and FT both above average.  This year I have been getting lots of runs on DT with the same buyer downloading 10-12 images of the same subject, often quite similar images - too bad they had all those years of rejecting similars because those seem to be what buyers want, at least on DT these days.  Don't usually get that many like that on other agencies.

SS had a very good month - buoyed by strong SODs. Best month since November 2015; best October since 2013 (November has always been my top month). Compared to either of those earlier months, the SODs this month were a lot higher - which is both good and bad news. The bad part is it shows how the other mainstays (subs and on demand) have weakened.

Adobe was a BME (but I've only been back there since mid-December last year, so that's not really a surprise). In spite of that it was half of SS, so there's still room for them to grow a bit.

DT was pathetic - just over half of October 2016 and 13% of October 2013 (and yes, I do mean just over one tenth of the earlier total).

Alamy had only two small sales - I was beginning to think I'd accidentally deleted my portfolio :)

I have only a handful of files left at iStock so nothing that happens there is meaningful (variations on tiny)

October was the best month ever for me. (FYI: started in 2011).

About average in Alamy; apparently average (for this year!) #dls on iS (according to downloads YTD), but three weeks to know if I hit the jackpot or if my rpd continues to decrease.  ::)

Encouraging results at FT with BME 2 months in a row now. Pretty good at Canva and 123. SS and DT seem be on new consistently lower levels.

So everyone doing well on SS again as it seems. I am still 50% down on the months before my portfolio crashed. All other agencies are insignificant as well. Overall decline. But I am not adding any images, no time, no motivation.

Same here, Semmick Photo. Strange failure with SS, AS, and IS in October. Perhaps it's due to an error transmitting rejection of the whole bunch of files.

No. $12 days with almost 5k assets is not good.

Nothing like last year for me. I'm down hundreds of dollars compared to last October 2016.

Glad everyone is doing well though. I just don't feel like it will ever return to the "8/10" acceptance days. They seem to accept anything and everything now. I can't compete.

Dreadful Oct for me. Barely scraped payout. Last time it was this bad was 5 years ago, except  then it was great because I'd only just started and had around 20% of current port.

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.

4000 dollar in depositi photos...i stopped reading at this point.
not even if you show me the bill
. the rest come forward.

till 16 superb months with 4 90 dale dollar and many other 15 and 45....then the dead and still going on in first week of november. sure it has to do with search engine and ss not customer. is not possible from days one to days two to disappear completely from seller radar...despite uploading quality content.
the problem is i still sold only my files who are in great position. everything new is buried.
personale i hope they will eliminate best and popular from search engine.

"Close to 4 figures" = $900 something.

I can't say I did well on SS this month.  2014 was still my top year, and I have to go back to 2010 or earlier to match the earnings of last month.  Demotivating is how I would classify it.

My 4th month into sell stock, my October was excellent with almost 250 downloads.  DT came in first, with SS and BS both performing nicely as well.  Sold lots of pumpkin pictures!  8)
