Hi.does all your 1,50$ sales come from ashburn usa??
All my 1,50$ footage sales comer from there...it looks odd...

Are you sure there's a H in that?  ;D More like what the payment represents.

Our Ashburn, VA data center is one of the largest data centers in the United States, boasting 360,000 square feet. Of that square footage, 176,200 square feet is a raised floor area perfect for our server requirements.

  ;D ;D...
Btw i don't get it..if only the payment comes from there where in the world all these clips have been bought??

The reported location is the IP address of the buyer, that's how SS reports the location. Someone using a VPN could show as anywhere in the world. The location information we get is possibly of no use.

Why is the location important? I'm sure I'll see some good reasons. Personally I don't see anything that would help me sell more, if I knew the locations. I mean from the locations I see already, I don't see anything useful for mine.

How is location important or useful? How can someone use that to improve sales or ideas for creating new stock? That's an interesting subject?

While just speculation, I don't think it's AI. I think they've outsourced it to somewhere like India, where a guy gets paid for how many videos he "reviews".
So out of laziness, periodically just skips a bunch so he/she can say they were "reviewed", so he/she gets paid.

I know for a fact some of them do exactly that with deliveries. (I.e., some DHL drivers will just mark "attempted delivery" several times so it "appears" they are working, when in fact they just skip the delivery route). Some of them are very creative with ways to 'scam' the system, aka get paid without doing any work.

Good theories, I'd agree. If there's a way for someone to cheat the system and get paid for pretending to be working, they will often do that.

haha, now that's funny - I never thought someone would have their kid do it - but who knows, you could be 100% correct! :)

A lot of us is experiencing 1,5$ sales from Ashburn-USA
Does anybody know which company is based there?

Ashburn has a huge number of server farms (thanks to tax breaks).  Amazon AWS, ATT and others etc.  Most large companies.

So for the "amazing super, special price awesome earning opportunity" $1.50 video sales via Wix or similar would easily come from one location.  Its simply where the cut-price, non opt-out penny stock host is based.

The answer is....most of them.

Pretty much every major hosting provider has a presence there.

I just thought instead of two with the same discussion and comments, you might be able to merge things. Thank you for keeping this place running, spending all the time adjusting, editing, correcting and all that goes on, behind the scenes.
