14 RC sales for me so far, normal January for me.

Quote from: ShadySue
I'm more interested in whether people are getting regular credit sales at anything like 'normal for this time of year' levels.
I don't really know what "normal" is with subs in place. Suffice to say that credit sales are down, and seem to have been replaced by subs sales. The subs sales make about 25% of the money that credit sales do. Subs sales look about equal in number to credit sales for November.
Sorry, what I meant, but said clumsily, was: 'are people's iS credit sales for January anything like what they were for previous years?'
Mine are not.
I have exactly four credit sales in January - which would have been a poor weekday before, even in early Jan. So the fact that my Dec subs are above any other month only shows that subs have undercut our regular sales - my Dec $$ total, including subs, is still miles below any other Dec since 2007. No surprise there.

My credit sales have been a disaster in January. I've had a few days with zero credit downloads which hasn't happened since 2008, even on weekends. And this far I've gotten 23 credit downloads totally in January. Last year I had 150 downloads during the same period (January 1st to 12th) and the same period in 2013 a had about 250. So iStock is going down the drain for me.

Yes, Beppe Grillo as per Lobo on the iS forum PP thread. I think the Getty360 is yet to come. My numbers are also lower. But they fluctuate every month and I go with what they report  :)

No more uploads to IS.

Always December is a very low month for me.  It starts out normal, but from about the 23rd to the second week of January is dead. 

I don't know why it would surprise anyone that December - one of the lowest months of the year - would be lower than November, which is normally one of the highest. 

I notice this trend on all sites, although more noticeable on Istock because sales are so pityful there.

Have been getting PP sales, way way lower than the rest of the year. Hope Jan picks up strong

Well, December was my BME in SS and FT. But Istock is going downhill.
Downloads are still there, but we only get 0.28 sales.
