Abysmal. Worst payout in over 10 years.  :o :-[ :'(

Wow, December was my best month since ESP started!!!  ;D
(but, keeping it real, -44% on Dec 2011.)  :'(

OK, there seems to have been a much higher number of Credit Pack sales, which has helped a lot, but I'm nervous about two sales. Both sold twice the same day (all 20th December), both on the subject of agriculture, both with one large value credit pack sales and one small value, the same for both. One file hasn't sold previously under ESP, the other has only sold twice.
I fear refunds might yet happen.  :'(

That's one file's two sales, the other file's two sales are identical to that.

Hope I'm being overly pessimistic, but it seems like a ridiculously huge coincidence otherwise.

Got a strange sale under X Culled RF type, it's sold under my real name instead of the so called "member name". And I don't know what the image is because the "Asset ID" doesn't match any iStock image.

Downloads stats page still shows Nov...

Quite the same for me compared to previous months and an amount for DACS is included.

It was good for me as well but not the best. IStock is becoming my number #1 is that sad?

It's sad because every single sale you get on istock for pennies is a sale missing on other agencies that pay you fair...

Hmmm.
iS earned me 250% in 2019 of what Alamy earned me, and I get 50% at Alamy and have about 10% more files there.
Doesn't mean I love iS, and I wish Alamy did better; but it shows that what you said isn't necessarily true. I spent 2.5 years uploading only to Alamy, but in only one month out of eight years has Alamy earned me more than iS.
Different people will have different subjects so different experiences, i.e. YYMV.

For me iStock has a better rpd than SS. AS is better but my portfolio is very editorial and I'm not a pro so I don't have editorial on AS. (photos)

BME, largely thanks to $60 for a clip that i wasn't sure would have been good enough to upload. iStock roller-coaster continues to amaze me.

My 12 month range with IS is $600 to $160. I made $247 in Dec.  Of the 12 data points eight were in the ~$200 to $300 range.  So average for me.

Apart from there very first two months ten years ago, december 2019 is the winner of worst month ever for me in 10 years, with ridiculous RPD
But I have to say november was my best month ever.

I don't know what to think, but for sure I cannot say that Istock is giving established earnings...

Third month in a row of decreasing payout.  Also, this December is approximately 25% off of December 2018.  Not a good trend.

Same for footage...istock is undercutting other agencies...the result will be a fight on price...be prepared...
