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.
