What a surprise today, 3x sales of 3 illustrations (nothing special about them) for a 120$ commission each... on Shutterstock... That beats my 90$ record of last time.

I find these new licenses more and more interesting, they keep growing up. What a surprise to see a weeks worth of income come in one day!

Anyone else got those high commissions?

That's awesome!   :)  My ELs have completely dried up since April (never gone so long without one), so it's good to hear high-dollar sales are still happening.  Congrats!

Yes!  That's fantastic.  Congrats. :)

Right now I seem to be languishing in Subs City.  I was beginning to think someone had turned a tap off somewhere, so it's lovely to hear someone else is doing exceptionally well on high returns this month.  VERY good news! :)

I hear ya Karimala, no EL's in May for me got me starting to worry, just got one this week to put my mind at ease, as well as a few of those $16.80 ones. OD's are high this month too, but nothing like a $120 sale! Great to hear!

Very nice Morphart, congrats on those.

I've had a $75 last month but other then that the usual $28.

I've had one $18 commission so far.  If I get some in the $70+ range, it might motivate me to start producing images for microstock again.

Awesome! I never got anything more than 28$ from SS, just ELs and those 16.8$ SODs. Well at least those sales are happening, I can't say I'm disappointed. Congrats!

Not bad, most of my sales are 25c in SS :-\

That's awesome. Congrats!

With all the stealing of images going on around the net, it's good to know there are people who still value stock images and are willing to pay for the correct license.  :)

Congrats ! :-)
I never had this kind of amount on SS, only 3 EL (3x 28$) once in a month
The most I had was once on 123RF : 3x 90$ in a day! It never happened again...

seems like buyers prefer to buy very strong licences only 3x at once ;-)

Congrats. I had one of these this month too. I was a bit confused on what it was. Is there a list somewhere of all the different licenses people can buy?

That's fantastic. It's incredible how these image sales are nearly surpassing EL's for a lot of us. I know they've become a significant part of my earnings. Love SS!

Unfortunately, there isn't. They promised they'd explain on their blog and when they posted here that the blog was updated, it just said (paraphrasing) custom licenses. IOW we never get to know what they've licensed for that fee. I think that's a problem, but no one else seemed concerned...

Thanks. That's pretty ambiguous. One line says up to $75, another says between $75 and $90, and another says $90 or more. I'm not complaining. I was just curious.

I assume I got 30% of it and the license cost $400, but what the difference between that and a $300 license seems kind of a mystery. Or is it more of a RM thing where it just depends on how they plan to use it? Which leads back to the question of what did I just sell?

I guess I can always opt out of the sensitive use stuff. I assume that is what this was sold under. I'm not overly concerned, but more curious.
