Do you really get them now?
For me as if they have stopped.

I thought they had stopped. But after five weeks (!!) I finally got one again. $ 29,85
Definitely not improving....

ok, it seems ss or people are no more interested in these licenses.
Maybe SOD and other licenses are taking over them.
how about the SODs and others going?

I used to get 1-2 each month, but I didn't get any this month.
SODs are disappearing too  :(

I am getting slightly more than before, but for on average quite a bit less per sale, so I don't know if I am up or down yet, too little info to draw conclusions.

Been two months since my last one. I used to get 3-5 a month. Now basically zero, with one SURPRISE every so often. They are done for me.

I got one couple of days ago for $23.31. They are coming ever less frequently - with lower royalties. Shame on Shutterstock.

3-5 a month??? wow! annually accustomed to get one to four 28 every 4 months or single 85 dollars
every two months. this past year to date , the only thing i get is 2.50 to 5.00 singles.

this is depressing. did ss replace those 28 dollars/85 dollars with lower cost??? is that why we now see 2.50 and 5.00 +-  instead of 28/85 dollars???

As SODs come from the Enterprise Division, which now represents 25% of Shutterstock revenue, and the Enterprise Team have been looking after Premier Select contributors for the past 12 months you might jump to the conclusion that SODs have found a new home, but Shutterstock said this would not happen so it's probably dilution again.  Still all things being equal you might expect 25% of your earnings to be from SODs.

Last year I saw SODs between 20% and 30% of monthly earnings - high of 33% based on a quick spot check (i.e. I haven't done a detailed analysis).

This month SODs are 8%; January they were 13%

That was a bit ago. Now is my 1-3 every 5 months.  Believe me when I say I am very worried about what cuts will affect me next.

In 2015 I had an average of 2 EL by month.

In 2016 I had only one in 8th January, just before the comission policy change  :-\

It sounds like dream for me
My highest sale was a single of 2,15

But with a port of 150 there's not much chance of such sales, i guess

Remember when Shutterstock cut our share of EL's and they said we would get more ... the opposite happened.

It is from "exciting news", expected result, and the same for all agencies.

We all knew it was bollox SS knew it we knew it but like most companies that ply their trade in a hands off no approach method they butter that bread so thick to cover taste of BS.

Sales this month have been awful! No SOD's and only 5 OD's. Worried I won't make a payout for the first time in more than 5 years. May have to lower my payout threshold. I did notice that last Friday was a banner day however. I just wish they'd stop screwing with the SOE so much!

My ELs are up from last ten years, but they are $16-$20 which means they were telling the truth. SOD this week $19 which never got those before the new system. Overall money earned is up for me on SS over past years going back ten years. 2016 was not a higher year total but 2017 is passing all previous years with ease in all areas. Might be that so many have dropped IS that they are now finding my work on SS instead. Shift in buyers for what I sell.
