Anyone got a $100 plus commission?

I received a straight $70 commission for a clip sale on Adobe the other day. That was always their full 4k commission before subs came in. It was for one of my clips that often sell as establishing shots (for movies, documentaries, tv shows, etc) that are outside the standard subscription models on SS and now I suspect on AS too.

The $100+ commissions are typically for these type of clips sales with extra seats. 

You are probably talking just photos, but with the value of video sales falling on AS, I thought it is worth noting.
Good one, Annie!

I also got a $70 sale, but this one was the best of April on AS.

$160+  Brilliant!!

I had sort of given up on SS in Q1 this year but on April 1st I got a SOD for $25 and another for $15 later in the month. This month started slowly but today I got a $37.50 SOD which definitely helps compensate the raised BP from all the 10 centers! Still undecided about whether I'll start supplying them with anything new as account has been 'dormant' now for 2 years.

Finally, some light at the end of the tunnel, but it isn't really from stock photos....

Just calculated my April '22 numbers => Second-best April, behind April 2017. Not bad!

So it's the same for you: AS has overtaken Shutterstock in terms of revenue? That was different for you too, wasn't it?

It's not the first month when it happens. It's true that my SS share has declined. But what matters is that my total is still OK. That's why is never a good idea to be exclusive with anyone.

Here is my SS-AS gap graph:

May '22 was my Best May Ever, by some margin.
Not bad!  :D

Very good! I'm happy for you! Fine portfolio!

I would like to report comparable. But unfortunately I can not. My May 2022 was very modest. Everything is okay at AS, the other agencies are extremely weak. Both in terms of downloads, as well as in terms of revenue. RPD is getting worse and worse at shutterstock, 123rf and DP. And at istock it was pretty bad in May too.

I have once tried stockperformer as a free trial. Although not all downloads are recorded there (I have problems with the getty/istock statistics) I get there for May the info that I am at 86%. But that can not be true from my point of view, when I see my lousy download numbers.

Subberstock is firing on all cylinders so far this month while not a bad month in May - did most of the heavy lifting. Go Subber! Other sites like P5 and iStock did poorly. Adobe did very well in May too though slow start so far in June. ETA Adobe has started to fire up!

Awesome download payments. On Shutter I've had 6 video downloads in June for an RPD of $15.05 and together with some image sales on SS and AS am already at three figures just a couple of days into the new month. This is not my BE in short-term results (since starting in Feb 2019) and nothing compared with ZTs above, but I'm happy with this start for June 2022.

Congrats once more!

I'm guessing those were video sales, right?

For me it's the worst start of the month ever for shutterstock. I only have 29 downloads for $4.47. No idea what's going on there.

Sorry misread the post. Please ignore. :)

Well done, Zero and Pacesetter! Yes, when the video gods are smiling, it really helps. The past month has been good for me too.

unpredictability is one constant of this business it seems.  Today I had mid $$ on Alamy,  double digit SOD on Shutter (is that even possible anymore??) and quite a few photos nominated by Adobe that will translate into triple digits even with 10% rate

Worst 1/3 june in 10 years in shutterstock

It was the worst month ever for me at shutterstock. This is primarily because I only had 14 non-subscriptions (i.e. ODs, SODs, Enhanced). Last year it was 75 in June. My RPD in June was $0.34.
It was just a normal month at Adobe. There were fewer significantly fewer downloads than June 2021, but the revenue is almost identical. RPD was $1.40 - over four times that of shutterstock.

I just scraped in to my BME for the combined earnings across the four agencies I contribute to, thanks to a $1.72 image sale on Shutterstock in the closing hours of the month, which shows how close it is. Was disappointed I missed a monthly earnings goal, though I made it if I include the three assets on the AS program but I'm not counting those as I don't consider those being the business.

Typical summer slump time for me, but total income for June came in similar to June last year (up by $51.53).  Total calendar year slightly up overall by $593.52 compared to same period last year.

I think I'm having the apocalyptic natural disaster pandemic global supply chain crisis economic recessionary slump this month.

10 days into the month, poll results still don't have any numbers for shutterstock - not to mention the other agencies. Are the numbers for shutterstock in general so bad that nobody posts them anymore?
