yesterday was a lucky day for me in shutterstock, I opened my account and found that i had sold 12 videos and made 470$ which is never happened before. my best day was that I sold 4 videos and made 120$.
I'm really happy but at the same time worried, because I believe I've heard that there are members who had their accounts suspended for lucky days like this, so is something i have to worry about ?

That is indeed an epic day and congratulations. However my advice would be, if you want more days like this, don't go broadcasting results that will have your direct competition frothing at the bit. You're shooting yourself in the foot. Better off telling your family and friends. And do not worry, SS will never suspend any account that is making them and their shareholders lots of money. Suspended accounts happen for valid reasons only

I sold two of them today for $60, and I am very happy! So I took a break today and didn't make a picture! Haha!

You may be the "victim" of a seeming SS bug that started recently.
Ultimately some peoples portfolios are currently absolutely dominating the first page for single term search results for a large variety of key words.  This started round about that time.

See here on the SS forum for others mentioning it:-  https://forums.submit.shutterstock.com/topic/95821-crossroads/

That said, maybe you just got lucky and if so, well done.

Ive got the reverse this month, zero video sales.  I average 30 or so a month and this is the first zero month for 4 years.  Something very odd happened on the first of the month - i went from 5-10 sales a week on average consistently to none at all this whole month.
Im down several hundred in earnings on average as a result.
