Hi

I am just wondering what is the best sites to keep uploading to even if it has low sales
My sales on shutter stock ranges between .10 to .30 usd which is crap same for getty

On canstockphoto less as 1 to 2 and 5 $ when it got sold via photosearch.com

My question to be specific what is the best sites regarding the price per image?

Thanks
Karim

Alamy, if return per download is more important to you than overall earnings, though prices there are also falling.
Better still if you can get accepted for, and supply them with, Live News.

for me, alamy does worse than 123, canva or p5 - actual sales matters more than rpi et al

plus almost all my sales come from alamy partners, cutting commision in half or more

AND alamy has one of the worst submission processes - if one image fails QC they reject the whole batch, and sometimes they don't even tell you which image, so you play a guessing game/ (and they reject some cameras outright rather than judging the actual images produced)

Alamy does worse for me than iS in overall earnings, but the OP seemed to be asking about rpd, even though they framed it as rpi. Still, on rpi iS (exclusive) still does better for me than Alamy., even though way, waaaay down from the 'glory days'.

I do not have that problem around 3 years back from now

I really can't suggest Alamy, it's doing extremely poorly for me and the fact that you have to run after your money to actually get paid isn't helping. I also have never figured out what kind of images sell there. Some people say it's mostly newsworthy-content, but for me it's all over the place and extremely unpredictable. My biggest sale (around $300) I ever had there was an image of a cupcake....
 What's the point in complaining about Getty with it's 0.02$ sales, if Getty earns me in 2 weeks what Alamy earns me in a year? Then Getty clearly wins.

Even though it hasn't done so well this month, I am still suggesting Adobe.

right, we can't make decisions based on a single month - this is long haul and requires patience
