Anyone else seeing their sales take a dive since SS introduced the buyer's page with the not so obvious filter buttons which appeared last week?

Well all I know is that since they effectively de-activated the Fotolia site my sales have crashed!  :-\

Things must be dire around your place? Diving and crashing.

Its miserable Uncle Pete made a fat nothing this month so far $36.22 compared to a $1,000 a month at the end of last year.

Hence my weeping and wailing  :'(

That is terrible, can you figure out why that happened.

Holy Dire, Crash, Drop and Dive. That's not like a 20% fall, it's like off the Empire State Building kind of fall.

Both AS and SS did that, all at the same time. How many images do you have? How long have you been doing this? Something is wrong.

3,000 images in SS 1,700 on Adobe

5,000 on Alamy

Normally in the first week things are good and you can extrapolate what you'll get by the end of the month. 

Perhaps Easter has come early?  ??? or maybe its this "Carnival" thing in Europe I learned about this week.

Hopefully sales will come in later in the month  :-\

Try again as the Post edit function isn't working

Been doing this since 2011 though slow to begin with I didn't really get round to major uploading until 2013.

I'm usually quite upbeat but the number of subs is getting ridiculous. I broke my previous record at 74...

Funnily enough normally for me things start slow on SS and the last two weeks nearly always do better than the first. Often Adobe starts better and SS overhauls it not last month though when for the first time for me adobe beat it and not because adobe was good  :'(

Same here though subs are few and there's been no SODS and two only ODDs
as for EL's forget it.

I think 2009 or 2010, but didn't add most until 2012 or 2013. 4,500 on SS under 1,000 on AS. I stopped caring about IS (they removed 3,657 of my images when they changed to Getty) and Alamy resting for now, 1,799 which means I take what falls on me, no protest or complaints, just bored. Mostly trying to add to P5 now and see what happens.

Hopefully you will recover some, I just can't understand dropping from $1,000 in a month to under $50 that's the worst I've ever heard of.

Oh my sales remain flat, Adobe is growing, without any extra effort or different attention. If it wasn't for increased subs and OD, I would be missing the EL downloads. Treading water is better than sinking.

I need to make it clear that SS has different files in many cases than Adobe. SS takes Editorial, AS not. AS takes some illustrations that SS doesn't.

IS would probably be better if I uploaded new, but I'm just tired of their convoluted upload system. Even DM doesn't work sometimes and I know that Franky does a great job, must be my editor or something.  Alamy takes both but downloads are so slim, I lost motivation.  DT I don't know why I upload anything there.

That's the whole group, I've dropped over 20 agencies because there's no sense in working for nothing, or insignificant spare change.

You made $1,000 in Dec. at SS and this month you make $36 from 3,000 pictures?

My interpretation is that it was so far this month - so more like on pace to hit ~200 - still a horrible drop. $1000 with 3,000 files in December is pretty awesome these days though.

Ah sorry I should clarify it's $1,000 per month across all the agencies at the end of last year. Jan. was $750 ~ I sidetracked myself in to talking about total revenue

The opening post was about the nose dive in SS sales this month ~ which has now reached a lofty total of $37  ~ so far not so good  :(

Makes more sense that way.  8)
