Buffalo Bill, please don't give me that...I look for sharing issues and symphaty here on this forum.  You don't know how much time And effort I put in uploading neither you know my story. Moreover, analyzing your progresses is absolutely normal...

Shutterstock.com / Daily Sales Limit?
« on: November 26, 2014, 19:57 »
After observing my sales pattern for a few months, I strongly feel there is something really wrong with SS reported sales.
I understand that the number of total photos is increasing and that sales can descrease, but I do not understand how is posssible that in the past two months daily sales are slowing down and stopping when approaching the 20 mark! This happens almost every day. Today, for example, 18 dlds at 2pm and then nothing...
I used to have between 25 and 35 sales in weekdays until last Spring, and then things leveled to the low... Very frustrating...anybody has the same problem?
I emailed Ss and waiting for some feedback...

Cheers

agree, landscapes are the big sellers on FAA...but I am not a landscapist, I like to upload what I like: urban, street and miscellaneous...just a few landscapes. FAA was working fine, at least 2 sales a month, but lately long no sales periods and a few views...
I will increase my port on Artflakes and see what happens...
Other Artflakes experiences welcomed here!

One sale on Artflakes for 20 euros in 6 months, 275 pics uploaded. Better than other sites!


it sounds like a success story to me....so they actually are in business!

Ciao,

I have about 1200 images on FAA. The site worked okay in the last year, but recently I have noticed less sales and views.

Looking for another POD to sell my art.

I have started with Artflakes and now have about 50 images online.
Care to share your experience with them? Any sale?

Ciao!

thanks again Shady!

last month I made more on Getty than the PP side thus keeping my fingers crossed...


how to see the Getty sales on the iStock website? Are they usually coming in after the 3rd weekend of the month?

My Uploads > GI sales in the left hand column. Also GI sales are purple on your charts, though Getty360 sales are mossy-green like PP.
There might be an app or code to work out which sales sold on GI, but if you don't use these, the only way to tell which files sold in a particular month is to keep doing screenshots of your GI sales and comparing them month by month, which is only really viable if your Getty sales are small.
No 'usual' date for coming in, but Subs and PP were early this month, so who knows? No word of June's coming as yet.

Hi guys,

I am pretty new to iStock and only a bit over 500 images there.

I have a couple of questions:

1) Are all the PP sales for June already in or they should coming in until the end of July?

2) Are all the PP sales 28 cents or they have other formats?

Please let me know,

thanks!

Thanks guys, I appreciate your feedbacks.

Last question, do the PP earnings for tHe previous month show up all at once or little by little?

Looks like the link has moved to the top of the page.


Thanks!

So, nothing....the dlds reported in the PP page will eventually show up in the total earnings in the next months, correct?

Thanks, I appreciate your explanation, but after I click on "edit file" (I don't see the "manage file" tab), and open the dowload history, the page is blank, no sales....i see the 18 sales only when I access from the PP tab, directly....

Hi,


 


I couldn't find an answer to my doubt on the other topics.


i have checked my PP sales and noticed that, for instance, one of my images was dowloaded 18 times but it does not shows any sale in the regular IS Account Balance or in the My Uploads page.


Does it mean that these 18 sales are still to be recordedmand will be in the next months?


please advide,


 


thanks!

Alamy has been cursed for me for over 2 months, now....

Really unbelievable, 2700 filese, I used to sell 2-3 a month when my port was much smaller and now 0!
Only 10 zooms or so in the last month and no sales...very depressing!

thanks for clarifying...
Scottbraut, can you please let us know if SS has the intention to improve On the Red Carpet service for the future? I have tried to deal with them in the past, but it seemed it is not 100% reliable...

« on: January 24, 2013, 17:22 »
I read several comments, the first of this thread, and now a bit confused...so, on Feb 2nd a lot of people is going to deactivate the entire or part of their portfolio on iStock. I have tried to de-activate a couple of files, but they ask for deactivation reason. Is there a way to bulk-deactivate the whole portfolio? I have about 300 files there, it would take an entire day doing one by one...please advise!

ciao

Alamy.com / New Changes and Sales?
« on: November 22, 2012, 16:26 »
Ciao,

I am pretty new at Alamy uploading since March and having 1800 images online, but I have noticed in the past month a decline in all the indicators an, especially, the most important of all: sales.
0 sales 2 zooms and between 50-150 views a day...sad thing the only thing growing are the views...
Is it normal to have such figures after the new site search changes? How are you guys doing concerning sales? Something wrong with my portfolio?
I am very concerned since, as I was beginning to build up some nubers, they changed the rules...

T.
