What is everyone's average dollar per download at each site? I assume this is not a personal question. I saw on this other thread that some of you are making between $0.70 and $1.10 per download at shutterstock alone. I make $1.90 as an exclusive on iStock. If those are numbers at shutterstock are consistent with a fair number of you guys, it for sure makes no sense to be exclusive to iStock anymore.

Though even if it was really obvious I should go independent, I might still sit on it for sometime, I might be pretty busy with other things in the coming months.

OK, I'll bite.

My record at SS is $.76 per download.

It's $.88 per download at AS.

Those are the only sites that matter to me.

My actual RPD look like this (all sites with the same images)

In order of overall income:
- Shutterstock: $0,92
- Adobe Stock: 1,12
- Dreamstime: $0.97
- BigStock: $0.30
- IStock/Getty: I deleted my account in Dec 2019, was $0.13
- Alamy: $7,66 (very few sales)
- DepositPhotos: $0.302 (because of "one $0.34 sale")

Lifetime @ SS (10 years) $0.83 RPD
This year (2020) $2.20 RPD ($1.70 in January, $2.80 this month so far)
For the past 12 months RPD has usually been about $1.00, around the same at AS
RPD at Alamy around $40 for past year, but only $7.50 for 2020, so the time period you look at can really make a big difference.

Are you saying we have exactly the same RPD?

Or that those are the only sites that matter?

Or both?  :)

What about Alamy aren't you a art photo person not just stock?
