I had over 4000 connect "items".

Maybe they just tally it up every few months?

Most of it seems to be for views on Pinterest.

But how are the videos being used??

thats why i don't sell nothing in stock...my sales are given free :)...i checked last march and i had practically 400 fixed image line in connect...now more than 5000....what a mess of company of statement...

Here's what they say about Connect if this helps - not very transparent:

And if you use this link, and then click on 'download' under 'products' section, you can see the whole overview of how they license work.

Here's something strange I just noticed on the Statements page in DeepMeta: I went from only 27 Connect items in February to 2257 Connect items in March. What might have caused that big of a jump? ? ?
Apparently, some Connect customers only report once a year.

How were you able to determine that most of the views were on Pinterest?

That is what it says in many cases in deepmeta. Not all of them, but many.

And despite knowing, you get a few cents for video you keep uploading. Yeah!

I had over 3,000 connect sales this month and yet I had the lowest earnings this month from iStock going back as long as I can remember.

Many of you know my history as I have been in this business for over 14 years. It is time to get smart! Oh I am so tired of hearing the dooms day it's no use.....blah blah blah Getty images makes deals with Canva, Animoto...... and the list goes on you would be amazed at how may places they are scrambling to sign up to their Premium Access! So like sheep to the slaughter you keep submitting your content to them and then complain?? I was Exclusive with Getty for 8 years, it was all great in the beginning but they kept making side deals with my content where I got paid nothing while they get an access fee from these companies every month and that fee is not small! Now you get your 0.025 cents and should be happy right? Nothing stays the same so I had to drop my exclusive status and scramble like mad to spread out my content to other sites and it worked well for me but trust me it was a ton of work. Now I have decided to go with Pond5 Exclusive and yes in a few years they could pull the same crazy stunt and I will have to scramble again, at least this time I have a better plan to speed things up! Markets change and time doesn't sit still but I am still living my dream and loving life. Now on video subs. keep in mind people don't post stock video clips on social media for fun! advertisers use stock but the general person will not, these companies are just using your content as a commodity to make themselves richer! It is our choice to allow that or not! I feel 60% is a very fair commission for my clips and will ride that train with joy as long as I can. Do what works for you I always say but stop the dooms day whaling and do something about it.

Ok, there are sales where you get very low amount of $ for sub. sales, but there are also sales, where you get high amount of $ for sub sale. So on average, RPD is similar to that at SS or FT, at least for me.
That's true. For me iS is my second earner. It's gross they pay so less but what can we do

Actually I'm not a video maker, I've uploaded just some time lapse videos and sold them for about 10 to 12 $.
That was the first low sale for me. Just want to report it for this thread.
And yes, as I grow 20/30% every month, I'll keep upload.
Yeah!  ;)

On one of my latest sales reports, I received $0.00 for one of my images. What's up with that? Is IStock giving away some of our content for free?

I have two sell earnings $0.00 per download.

Were these from early on in ESP?
If so, these were tests, not actual sales.
If not, why not contact them to find out more?

The $0 sales look like tests.
The mega-tiny sales are Connect, which is a sort of pay-per-view. In many cases we don't get paid, as they have to aggregate to 1c in a month, but I was astonished to see that a couple of months ago, I aggregated over $5 on one file (apparently).

So if you don't make the cent for a file in a month you lose that "money"?

Seriously! People why do you continue to support this outfit?

Just delete your portfolios and stop the cycle of abuse!
