RPD 2.70 sounds great, until you realize it is 15% and how much they got off you

My IS March RPD is 0.786 with total $ 3x more than SS.  This was unimaginable less than year ago

My iStock earning is 3 x SS and Adobe in March, most the money is from subscription based sales.

It seems I am missing sales. In the sense that the number of sales reported are lower then the difference of the download count between then end of February and the end of March. Anyone else has this same issue (or had it before) and knows the reason for it? Normally the download count (in a month) matches the number of sales reported of that month later with some off that pop up in the next month.

I also noticed a lot connect sales dated 31st of December 2021 of actually all the photo's in my port. Is that a yearly thing or something, that anyone knows of? They are all from one source in California with remark "Fixed Usage Fee"

You are right, that a yearly thing being paid in April each year.
Almost any photo/video in the port has connect sales, which are (as far as I know) 'pay per view'.

My numbers:
- IStock March is about 5 times SS and 2x AS and does 41.47% of my stock income at 19 agencies
- Photo RPD (without connect sales): $1.08
- Video RPD (without connect sales): $2.14

The pattern that is emerging from where I sit is that SS used to be the clear $$$ leader. They seem to be fading and moving into a neck and neck position with AS and iS. And this is with SS having the  broadest range of acceptance (Commercial, full range editorial with and without people).

I saw something like that as well. The spreadsheet $$$ were about a 1/3 less than the actual amount. I usually don't check the spreadsheet, I figured I did something wrong in handling it.

Either I'm misunderstanding the graphic, or you've marked in the wrong place. What you have marked in red is March 2021, or am I wrong or am I misunderstanding something?

@Wilm:
If you take a closer look you see 3 bars at march and only two bars at the rest of the graphics.
So March shows 2020,2021,2022 and all the other month 2020 and 2021.

JustAnImage is correct, Wilm. The graph above is the way IS is reporting earnings on their ESP website.

Here is the same info from Todayis20:

Ah, okay, thank you! Now I understood!

And unfortunately have to realize that March 2022 was bad with me. The download quantity is good, the RPD is unfortunately bad.

In March i had about 12 000 connected sales, mostly from Australia (revenue ~$53) . This was the first time while I am in IS.

Still not sure how to feel about those connect sales. Anyhow, they lifted iStock to be my top earner in March. Regular sales where also pretty good.
Even more: iStock is my best earning agency for 2022 so far. Who would have thought!

ESP
Royalties
Bottom box:

Export the Connect transactions for the contracts selected above as a text file that can be imported into your favorite spreadsheet application.


Import into whatever you use (Open Office) as text comma delimited file. See all kinds of rows and columns and nearly impossible to understand rows and columns.

OR the easy way. Use DeepMeta

https://www.deepmeta.com/

Which shows Connect Sales as a choice, without all the trouble.



Australia is Canva I don't remember who California is?
