Your earnings are due on the 25th. As that's a Sunday, it could be the 23rd.

To get word of them, Tomorrow is 20.

Thought this was some rather beautiful poetry... then I realized you spelled Adobe wrong, haha.  ;)

Sales numbers a bit down (allowing for shorter month), but rpd down to a shocking $1.47.
Earnings 16.5% down on last Feb. (Oddly, last Feb was by far the lowest rpd of the year, but I can only imagine that's a coincidence)
New worst month for $$ since Aug 2007.

In November I had 1500 images, I had not been uploading anything to istock for almost 2 years but I was selling approximately $500 per month. I decided to upload part of my microstock portfolio (with many images with very good sales), so I uploaded 2000 images between November and December.

Now I have 3500 images in istock and sales in January and February have been reduced by almost half. You can not understand this.

I can't even access the site to look :(

I keep getting 'too many redirects'. Anyone else having problems?

It goes worst and worst ! Every month is lower and I'm uploading more quality stuff. I'll see another 2 month and if it goes like this, I'll quit.

Half of last year.  Lowest since July 2011.

Very poor.  Not as bad as last month (which was the worst since I started in 2009) but close.  RPDL of $0.37 is pathetic!

I still don't understand their spreadsheet - tons of useless columns and the totals don't add up to the earnings reported.  Very frustrating.

Flat.  $3 difference than last month. I'll take it.  Honestly, I really don't expect growth in this industry anymore. I try to sustain as much as possible and focus on other revenue drivers outside of micro stock.

I started from scratch last July, added photos every month, and February is my best month to date! I have my first payout.
Port around 600 pics
RPD 1.09$

Suddenly my new photos from last year have begun to somehow come to the surface.
Twice higher earnings than in January.  :)

i didn't expect a good month but it come with an rpd of 1,1 dollar...with a quarter of sale i did half of ss....partly balancing the sudden decline of shutter stock...the bes thing is that esp really sells only or mostly new images, while in ss uploading is like throwing anything in the toilet.

Nice (I mean the $1.47 not the drops), I'm an Indy, .65 Photo - .42 illustration - Audio .39 = RPD when I look on DM3. When I sort by months, the top three are Jan, Feb & July 2017.  :(  July had some kind of image EL

I still can't look at up/down vs 2016 because of the removal of over 3,000 Editorial images, which were the meat of the downloads and best money until Getty took over and ESP came in. I mean, yes down, but it's unreasonable for me to compare sales then to what's left now. Dec. 2016 is right in the middle, sorted by $ / Statement date. I guess I need to watch another 8 months.
