Miracles happen! Keep waiting and you might get another one in the next 5 years  ;D And at that speed you might reach a payout before you are 80.
 
Congrats anyway. But don't expect much.

Just out of curiosity, can I ask you a question? (actually I am curious about this in general, everyone who submits to really LOW profile sites not only you, so don't misunderstand)

How long do you have to wait to reach the $30 payout on BigStock? If it is long, then YaY will take your years!

Last year I was starting with selling pictures to stocksites and had no clue what was a good or bad site so I tried (almost)everything.
While I let my portfolio grow and give every site one year time to sell my images and learned a lot about stock.
Also I have only nature related images and most stock agencies don't sell nature that well and I had to decide what to do.
Even with some major site my sales are very low so I have no good comparison.  some are great. my top 4 are SS,StockXpert,DT,IS the rest start selling when my portfolio was over 500 images.
At this moment the year is over for several agencies and I stopped uploading to many of them and I will close some accounts if they cooperate.
We all have to learn good and the bad things .Some are doing great on one site and some doing great at others we all need to figure out what works best.

I guess you didn't know about this forum then. Because the list on the right pretty much tells us what to do.

I don't think you should close your accounts! If they are not selling well, instead of giving your earnings to the agency, just stop selling with them.

Keep the accounts in case that site becomes a big surprise and rises to be one of top 7 or 8.

It is up to you of course, don't listen to me  :D But I would definitely not sell with them If I am not going to get my earnings quickly.

Imagine that you get a few more miraculous sales with yay and reach 8 dollars or something. You may never get that money if yay decides to close down. They will keep your money forever if that happens. Yes, 8 dollars is not a big deal, but HEY, Why give it to them??? It is your money, your commission, your 8 dollars, not Yay's!

Yeah your right. ok I will leave up my accounts.
Maybe I reach payout when I become 80 and gonna buy me a drink from that money.

Imo, Yay is one of the few sites with some hope of success.
Maybe they'll make it, maybe not, but let's not write it off just yet.

With same images everywhere, this is like selling candy outside the candy store in the rain more expensive.   big surprise ???

Yep hmm candy I know what you mean.
But some customers  want only pictures from IS and some will only have images from SS etc.
The same as with clothes if you wanna have white T-shirts soe will go to their fav shop and buy an expensive one while the shop next door has the same t-shirt but 50% cheaper they still want to have the expensive one from their fav shop.  


I just figured out why i had a sale with YAY : I was in the blog a week ago about best of the day...

I have a whopping 2.50 euro total there this year. I consider Yay a total waste of upload time. What do you expect with a government financed/run operation plus no marketing?

i had 5 sales at yay bet 6/08 and 1/09, generating about $40 for a payout.  2 sales since in mar & apr, then nothing.  i had 3700 images there in jan, just over 5000 now.

they're one of the easiest to submit to, otherwise, i would have given up
