Since this #boycottshutterstock ive Stopped uploading fresh content, had few sub dollar video sales (and deleted those clips immediately from their collection), past few weeks only a few clip sales at SS and a big increase in clip sales at AS! Had 2 sales over $60 ea past 2 days at Adobe! Hope this trend continues!

Anyone else seeing similar trend?

Not in my case (Video only):

July: SS 52 sales, AS 4 sales, P5: 3 sales
August: SS: 32 sales, AS: 0 sales, P5: 4 sales
September (till 15th): SS 40 sales (!), AS: 0 sales, P5: 1 sale

P5 was my best earner till mid 2019: (60 - 70%) of my income, after that I had huge drop in sales just after going exclusive there(!!). Going exclusive was a big loss as I lost my videos ranking at SS.
At the end of 2019 I've canceled my exclusive account at P5 and uploaded everything to SS, AS (except editorials) and to a new account at P5, again a huge loss as I lost my videos ranking at P5 this time.
My clips start selling really good at SS, and slowly at P5 and SS, and this year SS has 70% of my income.
I've boycotted SS for 2 weeks after they introduced the new earnings structure, and tried to cancel my account there but the number of sales is very very discouraging at P5 and AS and I really rely on microstock's income to feed my family, sadly I just can't do it for now.

Last few months in my case:
increased video sales in SS, very poor sales on P5, no sales on AS,
but I don't have too many clips, 700+ .

By increased sales, you mean quantity or royalties earned?

Both quantity and total earnings. My average RPD from video in SS during June-September was around $18.

I'm not seeing an increase with AS sales.  In fact, my AS sales are slowly declining.

SS, however, seems fairly strong.

Here are my past 20 months for both.  January 2019 - August 2020 (only video):

I have all my portfolio deactivated at SS but while Adobe is growing, last month not so fast as I would liked, it is P5 that was very good with a new record month both in revenue and sales, specially on my exclusive account. I hope the trend continues......

Few months ago AD was my winner. July and August one sale (2500 vids) while P5 is picking up with 7 sales in August but none in September. I'm a bit disappointed with AD right now.

SS video clip sale for $0.77. Really. Are clips now joining the SS photo mantra....Fill your pockets, boys! They will take anything!

Good news! I've had 12 sales on SS in the past month. The bad news is 10 of them were for under $1 and the other two were for $5. My one sale on AS has made me more.

I did just get a $100 video sale on SS on a video thats been there literally years, i'd forgotten existed and had never sold before.

Still does'nt make up for the large number of <$1 sales though.

For context, I have thousands of videos on both ss and as. Traditionally earn several hundred a month in videos at each site.

SS sales are up and AS are down. For the past several months.  Not what everyone here wants to see, but it's reality.
