Oh, how do you know - do you have an amount there yet? I don't have anything in the Shutterstock sales overview yet.

Yes I have an amount in Contributor Fund on October 24. It is about 40% down on the previous payment, which I guess is not surprising given the overall slump in SS sales as well as their mediocre implementation of AI.

Interesting and thanks for letting us know!
I still do not have a contributor fund in my list - maybe this will come later today... anyone else with an amount there so far?

And yes, not really surprising the amount is going down.

You may have it but you need to scroll all the way to the right to see it. I think they deliberately make it hard to find.

Maybe I got it early and they are gradually rolling it out.

still no contributor fund here.

anyway SS is waking up from hibernation,now the rain of sales is probably about to arrive,which generally for me lasts about a month or two and then goes back into hibernation for another 2-3 months.

during the seasonal rain of SS the number of sales suddenly goes up a lot and the price per image even,with good singles along the road.

I'm starting to think that as nobody else has reported receiving a contributor fund payment on October 24, it can't be the regular 6-monthly payment. (It's slightly too early for that anyway.) So I wonder what I got it for.

I understand that they are not going to pay us in November?

If they stick to their word, a payout should come in November - whether you believe it is up to you :-)

At least I hope that a payout will come, as the amount was quite good, at least for me.

Yes, only before they wrote about 6 months, but now when a sufficient amount has accumulated... . I think that the situation there is not so good with AI

Let them just start accepting external AI generated images, they lose sales day to day. This will change hopefully soon.

Did anyone happen to find out? Will we be paid Contributor fund this year?

SS last made the fund payment in May. Does anyone know when to do it now?

No one knows, and no one wrote in support =( I think that they will probably pay once a year, but thats not a fact...

I got a Contributor Fund payment on 24 October for around $27. My first payment was around $49.

Yes, no one else came except you, I think its just a mistake, now in the tent money often goes to the wrong place and loners are hiding there. Maybe they also thought that it was less than -40%, its better to wait and give it like last time :)

I think they are no longer paying it 6-monthly, but are paying it when it reaches a certain amount. But I have no idea why I qualified earlier than others as almost all my videos and images are abstract and don't seem like good contenders for training datasets.

I wonder what they will say if you write to them for support, although I think they will say the standard phrase... we collect then well pay

I asked the support team this question about the 6-month payout for the "Contributor Fund" and so far they haven't said anything about it.
But it's only been a good week - I think they'll just ignore the question.
