One sale today, let's see if it is a real one this time or if there will be a refund.

Maybe a fake refund?

I don't know what happened. 

I stole all your sales. No, really, I did.

Good.  Since then, the sales picked up and on its way to be above September's sales.  Maybe their big customers didn't pay till the mid month or something so that they couldn't report sales to contributors.

7 sales so far.. not bad. The strange thing that among those sales, 1 clip is sold 4 times this month (and 2 times last month): this clip is never sold at Shutterstock nor Pond5:

http://www.videoblocks.com/video/Man-exits-from-dark-cave-to-light-in-exterior-slow-motion-1574-JnqnuHw/?sguid=fe1a11d6-6f9f-4075-8e1b-42def8f9c232&sslid=323c6fc5-1252-434e-a9f9-1fe2357756bf&tab=combined



That's a good thing.  Their customers may be different from SS and P5's customers.


Nagging is good!! the clip is sold for the first time on pond5 today  8)

Videoblocks is the only agency that do withdrawals on all my sales, all other agencies do withdrawals on US sales only...  and that's make Videoblocks less attractive for me (33$ per sale instead of 48$)
Why videoblocks is different? (I am suspicious here)

Same here.
I contacted them and i learned that im being taxed as a person doing business in the United States regardless of where i might sell my work.It's propably the way they have constituted themselves as a business.Which means that there are ,propably? ...tax incentives for them,but i haven't delved any further.So maybe that's the way they benefit from this marketplace model.
Im fine with that really but just so we know what's what,plus it makes it easier for me here to declare my taxes since all income from vb is already taxed in the States..

Sales still going strong for me at VB and P5 abut still flat at SS, hoping for it to continue but need to find a way to promote my content to the world, different buyers uses different sites and out of habit or subscription they may be partial to one so I am uploading like crazy to three solid ones, 7000 new clips now on VB.

Never had that before.  Maybe I'm lucky.

It depends on your country
