It took 6 days to reach level 2 and earn $33. It's 33 cents per download thanks to today's $18 single. How is your progress?

By the way I have the same earnings on Adobe with 32 downloads.

I reached level 2 yesterday with an even $10. Today I had further 30 downloads so far with one single  outlier of 11 cent.
But ok, the year is still young. ;)

My income this year is 10 cents (Canadian) that's before expenses and taxes.  lol

Level 1 on SS for photos.  Could always be worse, could be Alamy.

$11.34 for 45 downloads from shutterstock.
$42 for 33 downloads at AS.

Last year I had to wait until January 11 to reach level 2. After that it got better. Let's see how it goes this year.

Oh, I've had a 2022 sale on Alamy and it netted me a whole $1.20 (US)!

I'm not at level 2 yet but I have double the downloads I had this time last year. Unfortunately, so far I have the same RPD as last January which is $0.19.

Just one sale on Adobe so far for $0.33.

The one good indicator is download are happening and that means customer demand is alive and well, makes sense with restrictions, lockdowns and travel being high risk and expensive as omicron grips the world, customers are using stock video and photos vs on location shooting.

Unfortunately the agencies (SS and Alamy) are in full screw the contributors mode but we do see demand for the product is alive and well so that's one good thing, now to figure out a financially viable way to sell it and make a living at it again.

Things are very slow for me at SS.  So far only $7.  At AS I'm at $25, at Alamy $33 net.

Yep, same boat here. More than 4X actually closer to 5X. Very unusual for me. Level 2 reached but slow going with the amounts. Very early days though.

Shutterstock 2022:

Level 1 RPD = 17c
Level 2 RPD = 26c

Adobe 2022 RPD to date = 91c

Other sites don't have enough sales yet to make any statistics meaningful, but Shutterstock is showing the lowest RPD all round.

8 video downloads so far: 36.11$, 2 more sales to reach level 2.
It's easy to calculate the loss with video sales, I was on level 4 last month: 30%, now I'm on level 1: 15%, so my earnings should be 72.22$ this month if I'm at level 4 (30%)  ::)

One video sale P5 today 29,05$, AD yesterday 32$.

Five times here. Just made level 2, but almost irrelevant. It's sad to see an agency that was my #1 for 150 straight months fall so fast and so far.

My downloads at SS have declined alarmingly.
None of my best sellers have been sold yet.
My portfolie has been in weekend mode for 7 days.
Also at AS things are unexpectedly very bad.
Nothing is going on at P5 so far, but that's nothing new. I've always had very few DL there.

I guess there is the recession, economy, omicron, also in play and things are getting worse all the way down the line.

What recession? Canada is not in a recession at the moment. Neither is the US...

January is starting very slow this year... SS 10 downloads, AS 6 downloads.
That way below the numbers I had in other months.
