PP sales are all subs @ 28c right (at least at the bottom of the heap)?  I seem to have had a single dl @ $2.36 - is this something like an SS OD or even an ultra ultra cheapo EL?

No, it will be a credit sale rather than subscription. There are also EL sales for a reasonable sum - $30 or $25 (I've had both) but they are very rare.

You can look at the various "Image pack" options on both Thinkstock and photos.com to see all the ways buyers may pay,

What you make is found here.

That's interesting - my tiny IS port doesn't generate enough volumes to have much of a picture.  So..  seems like there is a like for like in terms of types of sales with SS, DLs per image are similar and the return per download is a little higher in the PP.  What I'm having a problem understanding is how come the PP is considered so crap and SS is considered so great?

The PP is seen by some (me included) as a way to transfer sales from a high royalty outlet (up to 40%, 50% on ELs before they took the 10% bonus away) to a low royalty one (20%). No RC credit for any sales via the PP, so over time, you have a harder time maintaining your higher royalty payments at IS.

It's about monthy return on your portfolio, and SS has been doing pretty well over the long haul with that.
