I had a great month in June 2022 at iStock  ;D

Considering I had only a little over 60% downloads on the previous month yet a little over 99% earnings, I think it was not a bad month. June achieved an RPD of $2.42.

At least the sales at istock are stable. June revenue is exactly the same as June 2021 and June 2020 - I don't have that there in any other month.
And, funny, in June 2022 I have exactly 1! download less, than in June 2021, however 51 less, than in June 2020. So the RPD has even increased a bit compared to 2020.
And June at istock was better than June at shutterstock.

Pretty poor, but a bit better than May '22 and June '21. No 'lottery win' (big sale), so rpd low at 1.08.

Average month (again).
But speaking of iStock - No one else got a mail from them  with a "special opportunity" offer? I can't be the only one.

Average month. The 0.3 cent commissions must be a new low. China sales. 1.2 Cent sales too.
I really wonder what the deal is. They are "buying" the weirdest stuff from my portfolio, images which I really can't imagine being of any interest for China related businesses.
Local places which can only be of interest for ... well local and regional usage. Random snapshots from my early days that never sold before... Feels like they are using the images to feed an AI system or so.

Do you have less work on IS than elsewhere?

No, should be pretty much the same as on SS and slightly more than Adobe because of editorial content.

I did and rejected their offer.

Similar to AS only worst.

 But I thought it was good that at least after rejection you could give them feedback about why you declined the offer.

What is the content of this offer?

agree, much worst.

in terms of money per assets and duration of "deal"

that's what I responded to them on why I rejected their offer.

if they let me choose assets like AS and put one more zero them maybe I would be interested.

Wilm, nothing interesting, believe me.

Almost reporting time for July so I went back to check how the first half of the year had gone?

This is Connect only...

Earned 0.99 USD (wow almost a dollar in six months)
1333 sales
Average: 0.00 USD each sale

It's actually $0.000742685 per download, how's that for an RPD?

Makes the SS 10 subs look like gold?  ;D

Is 0.99 USD your overall iStock earning in 6 months and that to with 1333 downloads?
I doubt.

Indeed. They happen at iStock/Getty too, and more frequently than at Shutterstock in recent times. At least that's my experience.
Even at disrespectful 15% commissions, my RPD is higher at iStock/Getty than it is at my current 30% commission rate with Shutterstock.
And a potential raise to 35% later this year will not save that.

The swing from June to July was -$200 for me, or 50% less than June. $400 to $200.

Good to know it wasn't only me with a huge drop for July ... July compared to June was 27% - $250 to $68
Only Februrary was worse with $62.

Unfortunately also a very big drop for me.
