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.)

Good thought maybe Leaf can tell us.
I think exclusive numbers only count if that's the only entry.  If you have RM at Alamy or video anywhere else your earnings get reported as nonexclusive.

That's true, I don't report Alamy for that reason, but I believe others do.
Which make the iS indie score all the more shocking, as that presumably includes some exclusive reports.

Data is loading over here...
Woo hoo!
Surprise or disappointment?  Good luck, everyone.

Worst Ever. RPD has been dropping and now at .41, time for me to collect and request close in October, so downloads will have time to clear accounting. Why does this remind me of last year? Why didn't I do that?  :-[  Oh yeah, free money.

Not going to hurt me like it might others, but for what I get, the whole let it ride, take the money, is getting to be a pathetic scheme to observe from month to month.

Reminder, best plan is leave images up and ignore, take the money for doing nothing. Except I flip flop when I see the amounts and the RPD.  ::)

Expect that next month I'll get a couple good licenses and decide to stay and do nothing. I think it's down to, do I want the piddling income and torture or just say farewell?

I will say, no .04 downloads this month. One for 12 and one for 10 whoopee! Worst of anywhere.

That's right.  It is only exclusive for people who only vote for iStock.  it's not a perfect system, I know... and yes - there are probably very very few people who vote as an exclusive.

I am RF Exclusive at iS but also report Alamy RM. So my numbers may not be helping the iS Exclusive counts over to the right.

On another note, I didn't reach iS payout for January. (There were months back about 2010 where I was getting between $1500 and $2000 some months). February just came roaring back (ha!) to be about triple my ugly January (met payout with Jan included in the account - but still not great for today). So my very aged portfolio (since 2003) is struggling but still buying a few Cokes and hamburgers for this month.
ETA: fix monthly $ - too many zeros.

Could you add iStock exclusive as one agency and make better results? Or would that drop down to the low earners because not enough votes.
