Is it normal to have never received anything from the "contributor fund?"  I didn't even opt out of the data crap they're doing now and have a bunch of images in there.  Most of my portfolio is on the younger side but I have some images in my port that are about 2 years old.

I had more than 2000 photos in Data Licensing in the last year, but I still have not received a contribution fund payment. Is this normal?

And how your sales going?

It is normal that contributor with more than 10k images and videos sells only one or two subscription images per day???

Shutterstock is dead for me. Others?

I did get a small contributor fund fee last month if I recall correctly. Might also be January, don't remember exactly.

Reply to @Stockmaan: Yes, Shutterstock took a nosedive. Up to a point where I start to wonder: do they have an issue with reporting sales? For the very first time in years, I got a day without any download. That never happened in years. At least, not on weekdays. Weekends or holidays on exception, but even on bad weekdays I got a handful of downloads.

Interesting to hear others having poor sales on Shutterstock. Volume of sales is down but much worse is the earnings-per-sale are way down. Am considering suspending video uploads now (stopped uploading images months ago on Shutterstock).

Received $60.97 for the Contributor fund today.
I'm not complaining about the extra money, but my choice actually looked like this:

I didn't get anything today, but I got contributor fund money from SS in January - Even though I am also opted out of Data licensing and always have been ever since the option was available...

Maybe it's some sort of recurring usage from prior to when we had an opt-out option?

I don't have any images in data licensing and have a small portfolio (602 images), but I got a few dollars from the contributor fund this week.

My sales on ss have been pretty abysmal since I reactivated my portfolio a little over a year ago. I make more than 10x as much on Adobe. I was making a lot more before I deactivated it - now both the sums I'm paid and my number of sales are awful and I don't think it's ever going to rebound. In retrospect, I'm sorry that I deactivated my portfolio as I only hurt myself.
