Only slightly above average month regarding sales volume here but there was one nice surprise of a $$$ sale of an image that never sold before anywhere else.
And I got the full 15% of it  :o  How generous of them  :-\

Complaining aside (yes I do know the commissions and by uploading I agree), it's those on demand sales that can make your month at iStock/Getty or Shutterstock nowadays. I wonder what other's experiences are with the type of images that generally sell as on demand for higher commissions. The ones I got were all pretty quirky or very specific, often editorial or illustrative editorial and not the general stock type of image that ends up being sold as subs. iStock/Getty sometimes gives some additional information, but not for this one this month. The other times I sold for higher commissions additional information always mentioned book publishing.

Did you click Sync?  ;D

Should be there now. Good luck.

I suppose I should disclose, 0.43 RPD a whole 10 downloads. But there are some circumstances. I only have 935 images left, no more audio and they disabled and removed 3,657 of my images. So I don't have as much working for me as many others do.

Worst month ever.  I don't even bother to look anymore.

A year ago I stopped uploading photos to all agencies under RPD < $ 0.50. Istock included. This month $ 0.44, Dec 0.41 Jan 0.42 ... maybe it would be better to close the account ...

Thanks! It's strange that my DM does not download statements anymore, even after I received the payment.

Yes, I have downloaded the latest DM.

Oh, well done. Is that photos only or a mix of photos / illos / video?
I had $1.51 rpd last Feb and $1.05 this Feb. Photos only.

I was joking, but it is an actual mantra of Istock exclusive photographers, believe it or not.
