I joined Zoonar during back in April, 2010, when they were paying people to upload onto the site.  I received the payment for the uploaded images, and after that, every few months, I received a payout. 

Sales almost came to a stop after January 2010, and between then and November, 2011, I had three sales.  Since October, I have not had a single sale.  Is it just me, or are others having the same experience?

There ARE some sales at Zoonar; not many direct sales, but partner program isn't bad at all - it requires a few months though to have pictures in pp

now, I just got a weird sales report... if all dates are written the same way (dd.mm.yyyy), looks like it's March already in Deutschland?

Uploaded a year back for a few months. Hae 400 images online. Stopped 6 months ago. Till today zero sales. IMO a dead duck.

Zoonar is an political project, founded by some journalists, photographers and developers from Hamburg in the End of 2006. Our plan is to seek an agency with more then 50 percent revenue at the market. Today photographers can earn up to 80 percent revenue from direct sales and 60 percent from partner sales. We have a good growing rate but we are stil a newcomer at this market. These are some other facts about Zoonar.

Many photpgraphers wants to have an long time opportunity against decreasing fees: If we get more good content, we will have more sales in the future. Turnovers at photo agencies depends al lot from the quality und quantity of content. To submit photos to Zoonar is a political statement. And we are very happy, that some very good microstock photographers join us in the last months. if we are growing more, other agencies needs to follow our revenues to keep pace (especially middle and low earners).

Two more facts about Zoonar: We are no microstock agency. We are a photo distributor. Our plan is to release photos to good partner with good revenues for photograpers. That`s why many photographers (not even from microstock) join Zoonar if they don`t want to distrubute and translate photos to this partners directly. But we don`t have subscription offers or a credit system. Maybe we will buold this in the future. As long we don`t offer this, we cannot have same sales rates like the other microstocks. But if you have a sale, mostly you will get more money...

Sorry for my bad english.
