Ok these are my dollar earnings for July 2009

SS 37.9%
DT 17.7%
FT 16.5%

BS   7.5%
IS    7.5%
123   5.8%
StockXpert   3.8% *
FP     1.9%
CanStockPhoto   1.4%

Actually for my pound earnings FT should be #2 as a FT credit is worth 75p and a DT credit is worth about 60p. DT have been in a downward trend since April.

* worst month here in the last 18 months I had opted out of sub sales nearly a year ago so the Jupiter unlimited photo.com switch to iStock shouldn't have made a difference.

Sales at FP were dead until yesterday I noticed our cut is now 50%

Hi fintastique missed the thread  :)
Well MS-Earnings are down (is it just the normal summer or more we will see) but I did have a fantastic month at macro so this month was actually one of my best in stock.

Alamy hopscotched over 4 sites to my #6 position. 

Kind of bittersweet that I had my BMY on StockXpert.  At least they will go out with a bang instead of a whimper.   :'(

I had a surprisingly good month in July; second BME.  Here's my earnings breakdown:

IS:   64%
SS:  22%
DT:  11%
StockXpert: 3%   (I've since removed my port from StockXpert as it's been a steady downhill slide into oblivion there)
BigStock: less than 1% (next on the chopping block)

Interesting. My sales were down from July by 9% and my year-over-year increase was only 3%, making July my worst month ever, in a relative sense.

Could it be that the economy has really started to improve, and some buyers are going back to more expensive image markets?

IS and FT almost tied on top, CanStockPhoto (!!!) and DT well behind them, StockXpert and BigStock even father, CS and Zymm at the back of the list.  A zero month at 123RF for the first time.  Also nothing from FP - first time in almsot two years.  Overall, slightly better than June.

DT suffered from an amazing percentage of subs. I hope this is a passing thing.

Might be worth sticking with cutcaster.  I have made $80 there so far, mostly from a few EL's.

I wasn't aware there was an EL???  I know it is an option at upload but never saw how it would be used?  Was it an agreement directly between you and the buyer?

IS: 52%
SS: 24%
StockXpert: 15%
FT: 6%
123: 3%

Overall quite a good month, but shame the exchange rate isn't anywhere near as favorable as it was back in January.
Means I've got to work considerably harder now, just to maintain the same level of pay... grrrr!

There must be EL sales because I have had 3 of them without any contact with the buyer.

Typical for me, Dreamstime took the lead with 123RF and ShutterStock close behind.  This chart includes sales only, no referral sales are shown.
