Coming soon.

I just went to look at my data and got a warning, the system is updating.

"Data load in progress

Statement data is currently not available because we are importing new statement data. Please check back later."

Should I hold my breath? 
(Probably not, I get only a very few of the big sales, and a lot of the tiddlers).
Hold onto your hats, everyone and good luck.

Updating here too. Kind of early  (by clock), usually data comes in the morning over-here. I don't know about January but February ESP data (sales) looks very promising.

I looked at the Account Management count, I won't be throwing confetti or popping a bottle of bubbly.  ;D

But I will like to see what's really sold, not just a couple numbers for photos and illustrations. I also have Getty sound exclusive which brings in some spare change every month. Waiting for Thinkstock to finally go dark and see if that actually brings more people over to Getty for more money or just makes them move elsewhere?

Are you still getting a lot of TS sales? I'd have thought TS subs holders would all have been getting fast-tracked to PA.

I'll find out soon and I agree, I'd think that when they stopped selling subscriptions and credits the count would drop. Hasn't stopped the .05 and similar DLs that never stop making me displeased.

Hey isn't Feb. reporting the Jan. sales? We don't get actual Feb. sales until March or am I screwed up again with what's in what month and what dates?

Yes, Jan sales have just finished loading.

Worst Jan since Jan 2007 (first full month), but $3 better than last Feb, so only my second worst month since Sept 2007.
However, down c18% on last Jan, and down c70% on my best Jan, 2010.

(Nevertheless, still better than Alamy)

0,35 rpd..i think there is nothing to add..even with a 1000 download would be 350 dollar.
it rest only ss with solid sales and rpd...the rest is a joke,,, even as fotolia with the last screwing up. this is forcing me only to concentrate on rm and   agency like gallery stock and cavanimags. uploading in micro is only a lose of time, sure if you want pay a lens  sometimes still not bad.

it's a pity because compared to other agency 80 % of the files sold are from the last 2 years and 50 of the last year, but this red is appalling...15% is too low and volume not up t compensate. february look very good in terms f number but again if the red is this, and is this since long time....

Surprisingly goodish...mainly from a large increase in "premium access"

Really bad month. Last December was also equally bad. Both months are almost 30% down from the 12 months previous. Kind of surprised to see such a big sudden drop.

BME. In items, and total sales. RPD is still kind of low 0.5 but better than nov and dec... It was ok, lots of photos for 0.03 and others for 1+. Nothing really big. February seems a little bit worse, hope this week gets better.

Better than last month and Jan. 2017 but pretty poor overall.  Those 4 and 5-cent sales really don't warm the heart (or the pocketbook) but at least had enough credit pack and premium access sales to get the RPDL to 66 cents - not great but better than some of the others.  I haven't submitted anything there in 5 or 6 years so I guess something is better than nothing, and still better than a lot of the other sites with far more images.

Are you exclusive? If so, any plussed images get double in Year to Date. The only effect that has is that you have more 'sales' towards your target.

No (or nearly no) stats agree with any other stats on iS. They choose to do it that way.
Classic Mushroom Management, though they have a tech 'excuse' for it.

Somehow I don't get my updates until several DAYS after you all do.  As of right now (the 22nd) I still don't have my January sales info. 

Grrrrrrr.

Interesting as the obvious is, 2 x 41 still doesn't = 100 so they have some other magic added to the real number of 41 downloads.  ;D Must be exciting being an exclusive.

Does everyone here understand mushroom management? I do from a long time back. Was used to describe the relationship with the board of regents at the university, the teachers and the students.  ;D

Is your computer reading from a cached file rather than the update?

BTW - my Jan sales figures are absolutely atrocious.

No, it was reading current.  I finally got my figures on Friday.

Does anybody else have this sudden bumps in "Content statistics / The number of times an asset has been added to a board on Getty Images or iStock by a registered user + Views"? Usually numbers go up and down a little bit but it happened now twice for me, that numbers went up significaly over night. Once it happened at the end of December or beginning of January, can't remember exactly when, and once a few days ago.

For me it's almost the same all the time, varying from X pictures to another ones
