I've been selling clips on SS ... well, for quite a while now. I don't recall ever seeing a month quite like April. There were so many sales well below the "average" selling price I'm used to getting. Has there been a price cut, or a month-long sale?

A few examples follow.

Cart sales, which are normally $5.70, $14.70, and $23.70:
$12.84, $20.19, $22.50.

Sub sales, which are more difficult to follow, but are usually in the range of $12-14 for SD and $20-22 for HD:
$3.97, $10.80, $17.43

Anyone know what might have happened?

That's quite normal to be honest. Prices are all over the place. In April I got several big sales, had a best week ever but also had several quiet days in a row. Small sales are a part of it all. April was my BME but I do find SS footage sales to be sometimes sporadic but not as sporadic as P5

Ok, thanks. At least I know nothing's changed or happened.

I've sold a few videos on SS (not a huge number, but > 500 and < 1000), and in my limited experience, this was unusual. Of course I've had plenty of sales for less than the expected amounts, but usually it's just a couple a month. This month, it was overwhelming. But must just be coincidence.

more than 500 video sales is what I'd call a considerable amount. Therefore you have plenty of experience and data to work with.

$20 per HD download seems too low, I'll probably leave SS soon.  It's just not worth that.

Not tooting the IS horn but that is why I stayed exclusive because I average $50.00 per sale now.

When they start taking 4k I'll seriously consider it.
