Just have my first August sub come in, not that $2.50 for an S+ file is anything to cheer about.

It sure beats $0.28 though

I would wait until at least the middle of the month or even to to the end before thinking they are done...

I don't. But based on my regular sales and sales from the past few months, it looks like August will be my worst month in 2 years, and September will be even worse.

I dream of it only taking a minute and a half to load my sad, sad August sales. It's just taken me at least 15 minutes to get the 'Financials' page to load so that I could cash-out.

This is from a 'distributor' who take 82% of the sale's value.

A joke.
$10,56 - 37 sub DLs for whole August. Less than I make on an average day through the PP.
I guess they are completely through already because last sub DL is listed for the 31st of Aug.

Well, I'd rather be opted out, or at least just have my choice of old, non-sellers opted in, as each sub sale is like a kick in the stomach; but for sure the volume isn't making up for the sharp dive in regular sales since they started in April. So far (and as you say, it's probably all but over) I have 25% of the subs I sold in July.

Yes, I've also have had about one forth of previous months. Very strange: subs had been on the rise month after month from thebeginning.

KJ did say 3 hours ago, "We will post when it is finished, same as usual."

Gave up waiting for my stats to load. Maybe one day I'll know what I made.

Subs have been about doubling for me every month (no that it's been much in total!) but this month is down to about a quarter of last. Let's hope that they indeed haven't finished yet!
Having said that they're nowhere near making up for the drop in credit sales I've seen.
Credit sales seem to be continuing to slide. September so far is no better than August was.
Stats still take ages to load on a reasonably fast connection.

True, it is a disgrace.
You can also go to My Uploads, then click on Image Subscriptions, and arrange by date order (needs two or three clicks).

Yes
At me there is a saying (probably it exists in english too): "Why to do simple when you can do complex?"
This fits well for some microstock sites: iStock, Alamy, 123RF
But surely iStock is the winner, maybe not only because it is more complex than the other sites, but because even if they are complex the other sites don't fail all the time

Thanks for that, looks like less than $10 total, all 28c. Any profit has easily been negated by time spent sitting waiting for the stats page to load.

Just checked.  Green bars for each day of August, but they are so very low, I think it's not done yet.  Like others, subs are small fraction of past months. 

Last month I kept thinking they were done and updating my records and then more keep coming.  I don't think they finished until near the end of the month, so probably this month the same.

Now up to $56 - 187 DLs. Still a joke (in terms of royalty anyway)

From the Istock site:
Monthly payouts update:

PP editorial is complete.

PP creative is almost complete - an issue affecting a small number of files sold early in August will be addressed later in the month, so some people may get just a couple more sales come through later.

GI Sales, including Getty 360, GI Connect and GI Refunds remain to be processed. Those are slated to run towards end of month also.


We will bring further updates when we have them.

And just a reminder that this is the PP sales thread, which has precisely nothing to do with iStock image subscriptions. Please do try to stay on topic. Thank you.
