Can't complain! Approval rate at PD is 96% :) easy upload,fast review only sales could be better...
Hmm, an approval rate of 96% doesnt do any good if you dont get sales...


I do get sales 6k+ :)
6K+ what? Gross, net, annually, monthly?

Ok, thats life time sales then.

I have 449 sales, and 1552 items. So about 29% of my port sold. This means I am just as good as several top 10 sellers.  8)

This is what all my Photodune emails look like when coming in from reviewers.

So all my SS submissions came in today 100% passed. I know which site knows something about photography and it isn't PD. Clowns.

During all years in micros i had such situation with different sites: periodically they try to reject exactly what is already accepted by competitors. This is for software, not for a human reviewer. When such period comes, i change a little titles and keywords, then it pass. May be now they compare image thumbs too.

I'll take a break from uploading to Photodune!  All of a sudden hardly anything is being accepted, even proven winners that are still being downloaded at the other top sites!  I also know how imagery is being used in layouts because my profession is Graphics Design for 30+ years!

Weird. I get pretty much everything accepted. Out of portfolio of cca. 500 photos only few were rejected.

I guess you have what they are looking for!  ;)

As long as I don't submit craps , I really expect some reason stated for the rejection. It's not too much to ask considering the time I've spent uploading there  :(

I am at a 80% rejection rate with no sales - port online is only 450 or so, so I'll leave it for a bit...

Just had 2 out of 40 accepted possibly the two most boring/predictable stocky looking pics of the batch and one of them was technically borderline I felt. If it weren't so easy to upload no way would I bother. But when files do slip by the border guards they tend to sell reasonably.

Envato left a bad taste in my mouth when I started contributing there.  Their upload process had too many hoops to jump through, and very few sales... so I stopped and never really looked back.  Not everyone has time for a complicated upload process.

Its only complicated if you need releases - I gave up on that  >:(

Through FTP one of the quickest submission flows

Still the rejections keep on coming. Also SS has gone the same way of late. These reviewers are out of control.

Funny this thread was bumped. I was looking for it as well. I  have submitted 16 studio shots. Models on white. 100% accepted.

Just had a few accepted!!! The more stocky and cliched (and dull/boring) the more likely to be accepted nothing to do with technical quality methinks
