Hmmm __ my early results look to be well down on previous months. Maybe their customers have begun The Great Migration to Shutterstock too?

I bloody well hope so!  ;D

I know some have grown to appreciate Thinkstock, but I've always hated it and hated the way indies were forced into it - whereby the only 'option' was to pull out of iStock altogether.

As an Independent I just think of Thinkstock as IStock, I mean I have no choice but to sell there as long as I'm on IS right?
I wish there was a bigger deal made about how low the TS payment per download is on the IStock thread. She didn't say that a raise there was off the table. Yeah I know she probably has no power to sort that either but it could have been worth a try.

Any way, I also am seeing very low downloads so far for November, but sometimes all of a given day's stats don't come in at once, so hopefully that is the problem.

Each or collectively?

Either way - I've never had that kind of result there.  I'm just stuck in the standard sub payouts, always.  Good for you though Luis.  ;D

total PP sales for that day, it was the 1st time I had something like that and maybe the last ;)

Well I hope you get more of those.   Quite honestly though, even if I did get higher individual royalties there, I'd still resent TS on principle.

I agree, much better if they were purchased at iStock

I never know whether to be happy or upset when I get a good pay out from TS.

Only seeing one day of sales.  Hope that means slow reporting rather than no sales.   :-\

It's looking more like a normal month now.  I must have caught it as they were adding them on as there are a lot more dls for each day now.
@WarrenPrice I am seeing 5 days worth.

Mine are now adding to November 6th. I'll wait until it gets a bit further along before trying to compare

mine seems to be at the 12th also. 

so.. I suppose this question has been asked before - but for the monthly poll here do you wait until the previous month's thinkstock earnings are added before you complete the poll here or do you just complete it without the additional earnings for iStock?

I tend to get around the same amount of PP earnings every month, so I just assume the average.

The 13th is complete and some sales are showing for the 14th (hard to know if they've finished until you see the next day get some sales). It's up about 40% compared to October 1-13, but it's hard to know if that'll hold up for the rest of the month given the Thanksgiving slowdown.

Once my port growth at Thinkstock finishes (I had zero files there until the forced migration) it's also hard to know if I'm seeing real sales growth.

Surprising that PP can sell this much. The last three months have been really good.

mine appear to be all through, but I hope not! not WM of this  (first) year, but in the bottom 3. i would have preferred to see growth each month as my port grows.

I have no new uploads at iStock since March and I still have 66 pictures not showing up at Thinkstock

so far PP until the 14th

So far PP until the 15th

My PP sales for Nov. are updated to the 15th and are now twice my Dec. earnings at iS (and I am still missing 80 images not mirrored on the PP sites).  Dec. iS earnings are pathetic so far, on track to be only about 25% of what my Nov. earnings were so it wasn't all that hard to surpass my iS earnings.

Also seeing updates thru 15th.  Unlike last month, all are 28 cent sales.  Still a few days to get credit sales.
My port is very small at iS but most have been transferred (mirrored).
