A bit later than last year:

Nice!

As it is, I can reach the minimum payout which is $100 for me. The RPD is of course absolutely underground - even dramatically worse than usual. Only 9 ODs and 5 small SODs so far.

I'm curious how big the difference between shutterstock and AS will be in the January poll. Huge for me.

Same for me, but Adobe is doing extraordinary well for me this month. If it continues at the same pace for the rest of the month this will be my best month ever, which is suprising considering how poor Januarys perform in general.

I understand they're all (or vast majority) those 25 cent sales mentioned in another thread.  Still is impressive and gets to the upper levels at lightning speed.

Been to Germany a few weeks ago, there are recycling machines at the super market, you insert one empty plastic bottle and out comes 25 cents, euro 25 cents.

Lucky. In the USA its 5 cents, and even then its only certain states. Except Michigan, where its 10 cents, but unless you can steal a large van loaded with cans to make the trip, its not worth it.

Lol, really? That's actually a Kramer/Newman idea in one of the Seinfeld episodes.  ;D



Who do you think Kramer stole the idea from!

Yes, but it's a deposit system. When you buy a drink in a bottle you have to pay the 25 cents on top fo the price of the drink. So you are only getting back money you had to pay before.

Sure I understand it, for one thing there are no plastic bottles lying around in Germany, unlike in my country, where you could find thousands anywhere you look around (thou if we had those recycling machines in the first place people wouldn't toss them around :( ).

It just made me wonder about SS and 10 cents a download.

Interesting tidbit.

This morning at 7am I got an email form SS informing me I had moved up a level. I went check my totals and I was curious to see I was still 5 DL's short of their target number.

I wasn't until just now some 3 hours and 40 minutes later that my Earnings page registered the missing sales.
