Is anyone using lookstat.com ? they offer a microstock portfolio monitoring service, but I'm not really sure I want to give them my logins just yet (!), it's similar to what prostockmaster does in aggregating and monitoring your sales (without the uploading function)

the creator, Rahul Pathak has a blog at http://www.rp0229.com/blog

i was quite happy to enter all my microstock account details into an ftp program, but i'd like to know a lot more about the company before i'd be ready to place all that info into an online platform. they have printed their address on the site, and it all looks quite legit, anyone have any other comment? at the moment i think they only support a couple of sites, but they plan to support 7

It looks interesting, but I am in agreement with you with regards to the password security.

I've met Rahul and found him to be a genuine bloke.  We spoke in detail about his service and I'm excited about the developments he has planned for LookStat.  I'll be using the service myself.

I've also been approached about alpha testing it - but TBH haven't had time to look yet.  I think I will and hopefully he's an ok dude. :)

The tool sounds great, except for one thing; it's online.  Are you going to create a software package that does the same?  I would love to see a nice software application that would maintain per picture sales data for all sites.

Being online means I now have to give someone my account data.  Trusted or not, I do not plan on giving my username and password to any site.  Just as I would not give my bank account details to other sites.

Rahul, thanks for preventing me from developing this myself :)

What are you plans for covering more sites?

Rahul it was great to meet you in person in NY at photoplus expo. I have had a look at the site and opened an account and it is unbelievable. The potential you have there for development is amazing, honestly.
I can not wait until you have the full version running, any ideas on when will this happen?

I signed up with just Istock, and now that I see how it works I would like to add the others as well, but I don't see a way to do that?

How many users do you currently have (if it's not a secret)? I'm interested in your site, would just like to see other agencies added before I'll try it.

I agree with andresr, site has a great potential, though everything depends on how well this potential will be realized.

Rahul, perhaps it would be a good idea to discuss this in person (I believe we are nearby). Do you do some kind of stakeholder discussions?

Thank you all for engaging with me in such a constructive way.

One request: if the question concerns support after you sign up, an email to
[email protected] will get you the fastest response because the entire team monitors that. I'm the only one keeping track of the forum postings so there may be a lag between replies. Having said that, I will do my best to address issues here.

Kngkyle: As of right now, we do not have a convenient way for you to do add more accounts. This is in the works and should be online in less than a week. Sorry for the hassle. The system will be able to reconcile the data when it is entered without any trouble. Thanks for trying us out and we will contact you as soon as this is ready.

CofkoCof: The user count is relatively low but we're lucky to have some fairly high profile people on board with large accounts so the system is getting a great workout. I completely understand about waiting until we have more agencies on board. I hope you'll give us a try in the near future.

UncleGene: I'd love to meet in person and get your thoughts. Perhaps you could drop me a line via email and we'll go from there? My address is visible if you click on my profile. And yes, potential is great, but the proof, as always, is in the pudding.
