I usually get 1-3 sales per week and have for the last year.  I haven't had a sale in almost four weeks.  Anyone notice a similar pattern? Not that P5 is a big money maker but I find it strange.

When we ask this sort of questions is fair to explain also, how many files is in portfolio, agree?
So, I have almost 500 files and YES, sales dried end of last year.
POND 5 is neglibigle for me. Sales on SS (same portfolio) are better and better every year.

I have now something more than 300 images there, and 13 videos. Had a single sale last year,  and nothing more.
Maybe I keep my prices for the pictures too high: from 8 to 16 dollars.

Mantis, as You know, POND5 is strong on videos.
I have also some photos in POND 5 portfolio, which I upload more as KEY and representative photo for video, if buyer need it.
I think that photos on POND 5 are not strong sellers.
Last few months also footages are not strong sellers anymore - for me :(

I started uploading there relatively recently and am too lazy to back-upload but have them in the queue for new stuff.  Last year with around 250 photos and 2 videos had 4 photo sales and 1 video sale.  Right now have around 300 photos and 10 videos with one photo sale so far this month netting me $3.50.  Slow, but I like the 50% cut and the least I've received for a sale there is $2.75 so very good RPDL.

I don't know whats happened but I had my last sale more than a month ago. Which is unusual for me.

I was optimistic about Pond5 accepting direct vector uploads now, but since the start of the year I've had just 2 vector sales. Not what I was hoping for considering the fairly popular opinion of Pond5 when it comes to videos.
