Congrats :)

I've still only had one sale in my first three months there. It paid around $17.50 after the conversion from Euros to $$$.

I just wish the sales would be a little more often. Hopefully that will change with time. ;)

My last sale was in March, does seem like a long time ago.  I hope they promote the site more than Lucky Oliver did.  Doesn't seem much point making a great site if the buyers don't know about it.

Here's what MP's Arian had to say in the MP forum:

@Mostphotos are for the moment putting all its efforts on advertising in the Scandinavian market.

To be honest the crew are working like crazy to increase the revenues, and the only obstacle that we face from buyers is that they need to see more photos on the site. Else they love the site in every aspects.
So at the same time that we are working with sales, we are putting efforts to get more photos to the site.
Sales and and the number of photos goes hand in hand. Mostphotos have as of today approx 220 000 photos online and the goal is to have several millions. We are working really really hard to increase the sale figures, trust me.

What the site needs from the contributes is for them to do their part, uploading more photos.

And we are far more likely to upload if there are sales :)  All the successful sites have manged to keep enough sales going to make it worth contributing.

Nothing new and nothing original that buyers want to see more photos. But it's a circle: sales-uploads-sales-uploads. More sales, more uploads etc... I personally have no time to run across the web and upload my portfolio to every new agency just to check are there sales or not. Scandinavia is a small market. They must go wide to USA, Canada etc.
And btw, a big part of these 220k photos are crap.

Another thing- kindergarten with these rating system, where some friends rate each other cat's photos. It has nothing with stock business and I think that serious authors will not upload on such "family snapshots album".

I uploaded a few hundreds photos. A few days ago some idiot with this "portfolio" of 20 snapshots and crap rated my istock bestsellers 1.
At this point Mostphotos is a good place for various low self esteemed and inferiority complexed people who know nothing about stock photos but can rate other's bestsellers 1.
If this was the prime purpose of creating of MP, than it's all right.

1 sale in 3 months for portfolio of ~250 picture, last sale in March for portfolio of ~700 pictures - with so low sales it is not worth my time uploading I suppose.

I don't think it will be worth the time unless there will be at least a few stable sales per month.

Awesome!   :)  So many complain about this feature, but MP appears determined to keep it no matter how many people are irritated.  Oh well, I'm glad I'm out of there.  If others want to play kids games trashing each others photos, they can.  I'm only interested in selling images.

4seasons, I hope this 20-photo-newbie wasn't rating your photos 1 by mistake thinking that 1 is best.  Worth sending a note to him, can he change his vote?

I don't think he rated by mistake. Maybe envy? Maybe anger? Maybe just he's spending time for fun? I don't know. Anyway. One more sandy box for kids...

Authors of MP wanted to create a "community spirit" for purpose to keep photogs and visitors on website. They lumped together social and commercial websites. I think it (ratings..) works for novices only. Serious authors have no time to play. If needed, there are a lot of serious forums even some kind of games on TOP5 agencies' forums.

Let it be. One thing only, if ratings have influence on images' appearing order when searched, than it's bad...

Same here, which is why I like others have cancelled my account on Mostphotos.

I get my first sale yesterday which is quite a surprise as Mostphotos has no future in microstock IMHO: this is a photo sharing site more than a micro stock agency.
