around 10 days? i posted somewhere that I just had my first sale.

Guess I am unlucky if it is not a common problem.

Obviously, if they always pay out everything, they cannot absorb refunds.

I disagree, they should be able to absorb,depending on the circumstance of course.
For example if this reversal is due to technical issues they're responsible for selling this in the first place.
Of course we wouldn't know that's the thing with digital products.

My one and only sale on videoblocks just got refunded. :(

How often does that happen?

Not sure but I also had a refund this week.

I had a refund yesterday as well. I've had 2-3 refunds total over the last few months. The refund notice yesterday let me know that the video was never downloaded by the client.

How long before the sale is cleared, refund-wise? I haven't had a refund yet, but it would be annoying.

For the refund I had yesterday it's been a couple of weeks since the sale was made.

There should not be any refunds period except in the odd case in which a customer makes a mistake, stuff like that but in general whether it be in a physical or online store there are no refunds on software, music etc anything you download online.

Other than that I am VERY pleased with videoblocks, if only they would hurry up and approve the 4000 clips the the pending folder I left for them this weekend :)

Pond5 currently hosts near 30,000 of my unique clips but VB is catching up and in a solid second place,  SS is flat.

Seems fishy. I had 10 sales in Oct and zero so far in Nov. I did upload a lot in Oct so I wonder if I got a bump for it. So far very inconsistent.

16 sales last month, 7 sales so far.. most of my sales are related clips from different angles (I suppose same buyer), so my sales can drop suddenly to 0.. I feel sometimes that it's only good luck.

October was a great month for me, but 0 sales in November so far.

(Although everytime I complain about lack of sales, I seem to get one, so fingers crossed.)

Same experience here.Massive drop especially during the past 10 days.
It could be that sales happen as long as people subscribe massively for a period of time and pick a few extra shots on their way out :)
Explains the massive consecutive sales of the same few clips during the past month.
Or not.
Can't figure them out anyway...

Same here. A couple dozen sales last month and only 2 so far this month. Glad to know it's not just me.

I noticed last month that they started reporting my sales a day after they happened and a whole bunch of sales came in the last couple days of the month. Maybe they're trying to get a handle on returns by not reporting sales until they've cleared.

Yes i noticed the delay too for 2-3 days and also the major boost in sales during the last days,sometimes 3-4  sales of the same clip which has never happened for me anywhere to that extend.

Meh....same here with the up and down but I am very pleased so far with Videoblocks, sales are a bit different at each site, maybe different customers, some maybe don't have the time to shop around, not sure but P5 is still #1 for me but VB is now in solid second place.  Pricing may be a factor as well, VB has decided on $49 for all clips, their market research must have guided them to that conclusion.  The challenge now is getting absolutely everything uploaded there and all keyworded, there is only one of me.  SS is not doing well for me at all right now.

I joined VB end of last month and went on an uploading spree with around 1000 clips live so far - consequently have had 10 sales so far which really surprised me. If indeed it's a bump since my content is all fresh I wouldn't be surprised to see a much quieter December. We'll see.

December is quiet here so far on VB for me but it's early, last month was record sales!  amazing how the sales at each site go up and down month to month.  At least I am on three sites although SS doesn't really do anything for me. Need a 4th site.
