I went 6 weeks without a sale, and had one since. I noticed this trend started after I uploaded to gettys, although I'm not sure there is any correlation between the 2.

Has anyone else had a bad few months at pond 5? This has never happened since I started in 2016

P5 isn't horrible for me, but both SS and P5 are on a downward trend while AS is headed up.

I am uploading videos to Shutter, Adobe, Pond5, IStock, Deposit, Dreamstime - all with the same portfolio (4056 clips - 99% of the clips are 4k, 3840x2160).

From Jan-Sep 2023 I had 43% of the sales compared to Jan-Sep 2023 at Pond5, so they are almost dead for me since Feb 2023 - last sale was 7 weeks ago.

Revenue of my videos sales in 2023 are like this:
(1) 37.73% IStock
(2) 35.27% Shutter
(3) 18.12% Adobe
(4)   5.04% Pond5
(5)   2.45% Deposit
(6)   0.77% Dreamstime

Pacesetter:
Pond5 has been poor for me too. Up until last weekend I had no sales for September, then six sales over three consecutive days totalling $113.14 which at least was better than nothing prior all month. Pond5 is now my worse performing agency of the four I upload to and have a bit over 2100 clips on the port.

alijaber:
Pond5 isn't bad, a bit better than last year. My monthly average income for this year is 188$ for 3400 clips.
