This whole topic sounds like, we're waiting for lottery to begin and to watch it.

Didn't win the lottery, I'll get another ticket next month.

One really good sale via Getty (editorial) meant it was only my fourth-worst Feb ever, and better than ten months of last year.
So, for recent years, not too bad, also that sale made my rpd ($2.31) better than for a while.
Compared to Jan: +53%
Compared to Feb 2018: +56%
Compared to my best Feb ever (2013): -61.5%
Oh well, it is what it is. Just hoping for the random lottery large Getty sales.
Without that huge sale, it would have been my new 'worst month since Sept 2007'.

35% more download 55% less earning thanks to a whopping 0,32 cent rpd

This month RPD: 0.72. Overall RPD: 0.5

RPD per type of download:

Premium Access Time Limited --> 0.53
iStock Subscription --> 0.34
Credit Pack --> 1.32
Video --> 2.00

Conclusion: iStock has better subs value than SS (in my caste SS is 0.25) but... SS has for me a better RPD because of random big sales (EL, SOD...). Also, credit packs usually give me more than the subs or getty sales, but they happen less often.
My biggest sale in iStock has been like 3.4 for a picture... Never had any better sales. In SS I have had 20, 30... Have you ever had a big sale in iStock?? Do they exist?

interesting to see the forum off getty exclusive mostly...rpd for medium to big producer and seller not people who have 20 30 download months,, is falling down for most contributor. the problem in my opinion is that soon most of those exclusive will quit their exclusivity and spread another millions of good images mostly in ss and fotolia. persona

the funny part is that stock sales red is still bad but much higher than credit sales from getty...the there is partner portal...what a crap is this....then all the connect crap....this company is a big giant crap holes...my dream is they go bankrupt soon but then all exclusive will come to ss and i don't want think the disaster of another 20 30 millions files flowing....since the closing of think stock everything has fallen down , at least 0,28 are sure...now 1 cent for view in connect...ahaha....everything getty touch is becoming a giant crap...canva is another think stock. stopping any serious upload. i don't cancel only to collect at least something every months. but they won't see another photo from e.

Marginally down on last year which considering last year was a good month and how slack and lazy I've become actually a decent result.

Very disappointing month, much more sales (+70) but almost the same earnings (+$6) compared to January 2019.
My RPD on Getty ($0.55) is much lower than on SS ($0.69).
Many $0.15 Canva sales.

Considering I'm still in my first year and my portfolio is still quite small, I was excited to see numerous actual sales. 

I was disappointed to see the actual amount per sale.  $.19, $.18 and even one for $.03.  Sheesh, it costs me more than $.03 to fart. 

TBH, I'm making more money on Dreamstime than on iStock.

Had 40% more sales than previous month but earned $5 less.
RPD down to 0.45

A video for $0.63 while I sold the same in SS for $23.

Should I laugh or cry ?

It is also my case and I do not understand it. Why there are video sales for 20 dollars and also for 0.6 cents? What is the difference? The size of the video? The market from where they buy it? I do not get it. Could someone explain this?

Exactly, same question here.
In IS our cut is 20% that is $0.63 so the 100% will be $3.15.
In SS our cut is 30% but they sell it at minimum $65. If both sites selling same size clip at this price, why would a client even buy it in SS while he can save 95% in IS.
If not, what is the size of the video ?

P.S - I sell a few for $1.50 in SS yet it's better than $0.63 ;)

Not a good month here..

Not here either. I see the poll here SS has been dropping but is higher then IS exclusive now. Are more leaving or did the Exclusive income drop?

I suspect very few exclusives (probably fewer than 5) report now, and I'm pretty much a bottom feeder these days (since subs, PA etc.)

Looks that they cook the contributor earnings with the so called "we can not display real time sells, we need to calculate it (cook) till the next month"

Good thought maybe Leaf can tell us.
