I am experiencing odd and no results. For past months at IS, the downloads were ok and visible on various pages. The sales could be seen. But something happened after 31st May, I got Zero sale for June. Nothing reported for this month yet.  Am I only experiencing this or there are many people.  Is there any info.  Portfolio size 554.

There are people reporting very low sales this month in one of the Fb groups. I'm getting some sales, but well down on last June, as May was re last May.
They anounced a 15% discount a couple of days back, so maybe it's an overall slackening of sales.

I've never posted about poor sales, but the end of May to date has been abysmal. I have over 10,000 images, and have been fortunate to see 1-3 sales/day...none of which are S+. All S&M...which is the way I'm feeling about iStock...a non-sexual pain and humiliation.

Same here. Close to 10k photos and sales just vanished. It is not only at Istock. I am also a Gettyimages house contributor and the revenue is dismal. Less than a diminute fraction of what it was some years ago. For the first time I think it's match point for Getty, the returning point has long been crossed and the dinosaur is laying KO on the ground.

1000 images - 3 sales on June :)
When i had 200 images (2 years ago) i had 15-20 sales/month :)
So i think the problem is not in my courtyard :)

This trend can be seen even in my small portfolio. Average 4-5 sales each month, and so far 0 in June.

So far, June iS sales are pretty terrible, yet I suspect this is not true for all contributors as I still see people getting excited about having Vetta acceptances.

May be it is related to the issues IS had with deepmeta and testing of new changes in the beginning of June. It is sudden dip. May be some algorithm change the way clients find the files. Something affected it terribly.

....... I still see people getting excited about having Vetta acceptances.
Of course! a large/XL vetta sale is equivalent to 6-7 regular sales if you're at 35/40% or even 100 main subscriptions sales ..... add to the fact that Vetta is mirrored to Getty, it can easily save your monthly earnings!! So yes, I'm excited when I've got a new Vetta, yet it doesn't mean I'm having a good month. Actually June is heading to a serious disaster....... :o :o
I wonder if image exclusivity is in the talking because as it stands it's seriously unsustainable!!

I guess I was looking at the bigger picture. Getting a Vetta acceptance doesn't mean much if the overall sales trend is significantly down. Not to mention getting a Vetta acceptance doesn't imply that there will be any significant sales of the new Vetta.

True on iStock,  but some exclusives report good sales on Getty, so worth it for them.

Finally things got started again for me. The stats are moving now.  I have started getting sales being reported now.
