I have seen a drop of almost 50% since June. Even given the long term steady decline of IS sales this is odd and off trend compared to the figure I expected.

It is also down much more compared to last year than I expected, I thought it would be about 10% as previous months but again, almost 50%. Anyone else? Have they definitely finished reporting?

Same here, a drop of about 50% in July, compared to my average.
I also thought that they did not report all the July sales yet.

June was very good for me.

I really hope that's what it is. It is too much of a drop. A bit like the month when they double reported all our sales and had to claw it back, but in reverse!

Probably not what it is? end of last year I sort of came to terms with that micro-stock have beaten itself to death. The owners have had their monies worth and frankly they don't care and why should they. Its constant hickups all along the line and in every single agency followed by dreadful earnings.
I have a feeling its singing on its last notes and they are really just surviving because of starry eyed newcomers.

Okay so it looks like something is up... this isn't the usual expected year on year IStock drop. I wonder what's going on? misreporting issue or thinkstock was broken for half the month or what? Something's up, my graph looks as weird as it did when we got all those extra funds.

About -20% drop for me in July compared to June, and PP stopped coming sometime like mid last week. Didn't alarm me since it's not a 50% drop like most of you report, and also since it's a dead summer season now, so I thought 20% drop is normal... But appears like it's abnormal anyways.

Last month the PPs were reported in 2 "batches", the second one came around July 24th, so hopefully in a day or 2 there will be more PPs reported 8)

PP green bar have been coming in. That's mainly Thinkstock right? or does that include other things? I have had a couple of of GI connect and GI sales but they are never more than a few of cents. I am an independent.

Getty Plus (G+) fka Getty 360, (G360) is green, same as Thinkstock.
Getty Connect is black.
Getty is purple, and should only be for exclusives, but can be for tiny amounts.

Interesting. I get purples each month, usually one clump and it always comes last.

Thinkstock sales ended I think a week or two ago. Dose from last night are Getty sales. Both are shown as green color (don't know why by the way, there is color for GI and GI connect).

No-one knows the reason.
When I got my first one, a whopping $50 (It was pretty amazing to me that someone had paid some enormous sum for an isolation of something I'd bought 3 for 1 at a pound shop. However, my G360/G+ sales values shrunk rapidly after that. This month I had one for 25c, the amount I refuse to sell for on SS  ::), I had to ask CR, as I'm not on TS, and they wrote to said they'd need to check it out, and when they got back to me, they said it was Getty 360 (as was).
At the time, I was banned from the iS forum, so when someone asked a couple of months later, no-one knew the answer, and the lobotomiser asked and came back with the same answer, having previously said they'd be reported purple like normal Getty sales.
Right hand ... left hand.

Thanks for clearing that up. I wonder why I also get some purple sales?
