Highest commission was $362 on Alamy almost 10 years ago. I've also had $120s from SS but the only place still delivering the odd 100+ return from a single sale is Fine Art America (I've had $200, $170 and a few $50s and 60s there in 2018, but that's generally for travel image wall art).
Lowest? Well, how about some of the Alamy refunds? -$50 here -$100 there.

You mean fractions of a cent for a connect sale, right?  ;D Not including the - numbers and the all zero, which I don't understand, DM sorted by commission:
Connect,2018-01,11/1/2016, image ID removed",0.00001,15%,0.00006,Creative Image,iStockphoto,Other,"Getty",US,"California"

If we're only talking Microstock, then Alamy more than a few at $200 with the old system. I did have an agency buy the rights to distribute a series of images for $350. Single Sunset on SSTK went for $84 commission, who know why or for what use? A Sunset? I'd never know on Adobe we can't see our lifetime stats. iSTock juggled the system, I can't see back before we got "Exciting News" about ESP.

Single sales are the dessert treat after the weeks and months of nothing but dried crackers and water. And I'm sure happy for those encouraging larger sales that come in, now and then.
