"one year to pay back 800 dollar?
oh god."

Do I need to repeat that I started from scratch? what does your comment add to the conversation? Nothing ... zero, niet, nada. You seem to have a lot of time, you should take some pictures or just get some fresh air and put some positivism in your (too many) post.  ;D

I am very happy with this $ 1200 (and not $ 800)

Don't mind him. Total idiot and laughing stock in this forum.

Idiot, i dont know, but a short break or a few days of vacation would certainly not hurt him!
peace

When was the last time anyone anywhere uploaded something to Istock? Surely at least a year or two now given their greedy unethical commission % and sales prices

I upload 200 - 500 photos every month. I can't complain.

The same could be said of many other micros as well. Take the SS $1.50 streaming video commission for example. I'm certainly not defending IS, but at this point I will take any revenue stream available. That's how bad things have become.

I have closed quite a few accounts over the years "in protest" or just because the agencies just didn't deliver.  But at this point the microstock biz is done for contributors. While the industry may be fruitful for the agencies themselves, the losers are the suppliers.  So I am letting my stuff ride and will take every last cent I can.  However, and I've been honest about this before, I am not shooting for microstock any more.  Not doing any studio "stock" work for them and just not putting any time into building a broader portfolio. Basically, I am winding down. I make more money shooting dildo sanitizers for a client than I do in microstock.

Happy, considering that i started from 0 in may 2017. for me IS is the best. $ = double what i did on SS. Almost triple $ of what I did on AS. If I combine all my income from the sites I contribute to, I have just paid back the purchase of my G85. Not bad at all for the little amateur that I am!

Someone will certainly ask me the question: What are you doing with all the time you have spent on this? Well, the time to learn Lightroom, Photoshop in addition to the photo missions to get used to my camera, to put into practice what I learned in my classes = for me, a total enrichment !.

Congrats ... indeed, you are doing a lot of things right! Love that term "total enrichment" ... that's exactly the way I feel too and I've been with istockphoto since 2002.

I think you are underlining what most of us " old" members are doing, just letting the portfolios ride along and no more uploading to microstock which is a pointless excersise!
I only upload RM nowadays fair enough they might not seel often but when is does, at least in my case its good prices and thats something!

Forgive me for repeating a question that I am sure has been asked, but I couldn't find a definitive answer.

So I am a new amateur stock photographer who began in august.

On the 19th of september I finally received info that I have 6 sales for August.  However, when I look at my profile and 'downloads year to date' it says I have 28.  Is this because I have 6 sales in August and 24 more in September?

Or is this because sales don't equal downloads?

Or is there another reason?

Further, and to make things even more perplexing, when I click on royalties it gives the message "Royalties data will not be available until your first transaction has occurred. Please try again next month."

Why is this the notification if my sales now show up as 6 and my downloads are 28?  How do I have no transactions?


Any clarity would be much appreciated.


thanks!

Yeah, but you shouldn't double post.
The definitive answer is on the iStock site, not here. Not that it's necessarily easy to find, granted (see other thread for clue).

You're right, I posted here after realizing it was a more appropriate spot.  I spent much time navigating the FAQ and couldn't find an clear answer hence me coming here for one.


Won't double post again.

thanks

August 'sales' stats are in on the app, but not the actual stats on the site.

Patiently waiting....for another disappointing month. When I started, Istock was my top earner...now...not so much. Adobe stock and Envato are my winners that last two months. We'll see what this month brings.
