Hello,

Does anyone know which countries have the most amount of purchases or customers, or any way to acquire that information?


Thank you so much,
Ron

In general, based on data from other sites:

1. USA. Always. This will be true for almost anything.
2-10. UK, Germany, Canada, Australia, South Korea, Italy, Spain, France, Holland.

Of course, if you have a portfolio only from a certain country, you might get most of your customers from there, but in general, spending is done in the countries I mentioned.

There's no way to acquire that information except keep a record of your own sales as they appear on the contributor dashboard

There's an overview in the Q4 earnings call transcript. 66% of total revenue is from outside the US and about half of the non-US revenue is Europe.

I'm still waiting for Iceland to make a purchase. I may have to add a few more snowbanks and snowshoe track shots maybe.  ;)

I'm thinking my portfolio is a fifty-fifty split between the US and the rest of the world. I live in Canada but very close to the US border so my portfolio (about 20,000 shots in and among 5 agencies) has a fair amount of US content.

Only 1/4 of sales are from USA.

"Only". :)

That's quite an enormous part.

Didn't some of the agencies used to report US sales and Other Sales? I don't remember, but I'd guess, unless you are looking at a German agency or someplace that's featuring their countries world, any of the big three should be about the same for US vs Other.

Very nice! It would seem that the data could relate to downloads as well.

You can see US sales vs other sales on SS by going to the payment history page :

Last month about 55% non US for me (I'm US based and have mostly US content)

the month before about 47% non US.

Just eyeballing down the list I'd say it usually runs from about 55-70% non US for me.

Oh yeah, that, and now that I look, it varies from month to month as much as 3x Non-US one month, 50-50 the next and 4x more US than Non-US. I can't really see any trend worth mentioning. I thought I might.
