I was ready to be disappointed ... but, a little better than I expected.

I can see the downloads, but not the statement or earnings. Mine will be dire unless I've somehow hit the jackpot and had a large value sale.

I am content with my September earnings on iStock. Nothing too crazy, but a solid month.

I have a run of clawbacks from a 'Partner Program' in China. I wonder what that's all about?

For me a dreadful month. 40% down on last years september. I had hundreds of chinese sales refunds. It is stated that it is to correct some error overpayments on past statements. Oh well......

I have a run of clawbacks from a 'Partner Program' in China. I wonder what that's all about?

Someone mentioned over 100 of these on their forum (unless that was you!)

For me, my lowest downloads since April 2007 (equal dls with that month) and the highest proportion of PA sales in the charts which show in ESP, but somehow April and May had considerably lower rpds, so this is only my third-worst month for $$ since becoming exclusive in August 2007.
To be fair, I'm hardly uploading nowadays; I have other life priorities and the low rpd makes it difficult for me to justify making any serious effort to carve out the time to make more images.

It wasn't me, and thankfully, I only had about 20. It didn't add up to much - maybe a couple of dollars - but it's another example of less than transparent information.

Here's one of mine from last month:      0.00$    1

I'd make a point of questioning that, just to make them answer. (except that their support replies don't reach me, though I get plenty of other emails from them)
(Unless it's Connect, in which case  :()

Still, it's better than refunds, aka, there's always someone worse off.

True, nothing is more than a refund. I just thought it was funny that they would notify me of a $0.00 download. I haven't looked at connect sales on that spreadsheet. I figure they add up and some day I get the 2 cents.

Still trying to understand, where someone said Connect sales were paid once a year and I see mine reported every month. What's the right answer? IS says when the total reaches 2 cents. I don't know? Does anyone have the straight answer?

I have no idea. Nothing on that site matches anything else, and what they say 'should' happen doesn't always check out with what happens 'on the ground'.  Maybe someone else knows.
