I just noticed that one of my images is featured in the slide-show on the front page of Zoonar.  I just wish it was getting me sales!  With nearly 1300 images on the site, I have not had a sale since around last October.  Very disappointing after a promising start!

This is the image: https://www.zoonar.com/photo/the-facade-of-delft-town-hall_1186304.html

Hey congrats Phillip! Yeah I've had a couple on the front page in recent months too, no sales from them being on display though.

However, I have had a couple of nice sales this year at Zoonar, and the higher prices make it worthwhile. I am hoping they continue to have sales in the long run.

October last year!?  man, quit that site,  your time could surely be spent better.

I just find it disappointing that I had regular sales on the site for over a year, with a few payouts, and then in October 2011 it all came to a sudden and crashing halt.  I have not had one sale since then.  That brakes the record!  Even sites that are regarded as the weakest give me sales every now and then. 

This year I've had a payout or payouts from sites such as Panthermedia, Graphic Leftovers, Yaymicro, Pixmac and Featurepics, but not even one sale at Zoonar.  You'd think that I'd get one sale in 9 months out of nearly 1300 images. :-(   

I hope things improve soon!

I've stopped uploading there.  Seems a complete waste of time. Shame as when the sales do come in the commisions are reasonable.

The site is basically about the partners, I don't think Zoonar itself promotes itself much. I don't know if you guys are opted in with any of the partners, but if you're not, I think there's not much chance of getting too many sales.

yes there is something odd about this place, partners or not,  nobody seem to know anybody who is ever selling anything there. Yet their interface, uploading, etc, is first class. Weird.

I had a sale (DPP) for 19,50 EUR few weeks ago. Now I believe I will reach payout one fine day.

Ditto on that 19,50 EUR, yesterday a Getty sale was recorded . . . . .  its all about the partners.

I'm selling at Zoonar, I've had a few payouts. Mainly through partner sites, If you don't have images on partner sites the chances are slim.

I think that not all of partners sales are reported immediately, for example Getty or DPP sales are reported monthly.

I was under the impression if your pic was used as a promo you got paid? are you they using an unwatermarked version of your image to sell their site? yes they are, they should pay just like anyone else should.

curious, looks like I had my 3 first sales today from DDP but they are dated from July 1st 2012 :o

No everything is ok. We are booking this till the end of the months because it is a monthly report.

Kind regards,
Michael

I do quite well there with quite a good payout almost every month and do agree with Perry you do need to have images on partner sites for good sales.
I actually like them a lot!  :)
