Can anyone remember where we had got to on the lowest credit value we found on iStock?
I just had an EL sale this morning which according to Sean's calculator (thanks for keeping it up, Sean) seems to be for 36c credits, and I thought the lowest I'd heard of before was c41c, and that was way back early last year sometime.
I know they have deeper discounts than those shown on the site for very large buyers, and I suppose on top of that, they'd have to honour any discount they'd offered for site outages.
Anyone know of recent sales for values <36c?

Is that what you were paid? Was that when an XS was one credit, and you're at 15%?
If so, that was a credit value of 53c.

8c was what I was paid. It was 1RC. I also have had two S sales for 2RC within a few days, one was 20c and the other 96c?

I was asking for the credit value, i.e. the amount the buyer paid for each credit.
Your 20c sale was paid for with 66c credits, and your 96c one with $3.20 credits (more likely a cash sale?)

They are issuing their own money and inflating it away along with the liabilities, just like a sovereign.

I had a 1 credit sale in September 2012 that netted me $0.07 royalty at 15%. That works out to a credit cost of $0.466666.  :P
