     Not  sure  why  but  my  application  was  rejected.  Never  recieved  a  reply  from  support.  Maybe  someone  from  adminastration  will  see  this  and  reply.

I almost cannot believe that you have 7000+ photos on that site and didn't even get sales daily. to me, it's still very dead.  ;)

Which was why I had about left them for dead.  I am pleasantly surprised that sales have picked up as they have.  Hopefully it is a good sign and other smaller ports will begin to see things pick up too. 

On the subject of daily sales, there are a few sites at the bottom of the pile that I don't see sales on every day - Crestock, GL, Pixmac, for example.

Lets face it, these little sites aren't the ones anybody is making their real money off of.  They are just some additional pocket money.  However, it is still nice when they pick up.

In my case it's the opposite - October has been completely dead - not one download so far this month (and even for a dead site like StockFresh, that's not typical for me). Glad you're seeing something stirring, but I'm thinking their best bet is to change what they're selling - they should sell the engine for their stock web site to aspiring artists, cooperatives and agencies. Looks decent and works well - certainly beats the heck out of k-tools :)

Great idea.  I think they could probably make more selling their software than they are selling photos.

OK, people were being pretty negative about StockFresh earlier this month.

I have been having the exact opposite experience for the past week or so.  I've racked up around $35 in commissions since Oct 15, including $7.35 today, which might be my BDE there.

I'm wondering if anyone else has seen an improvement since Oct 15?

I really think this is a site worth sticking with.  Keep it up, Peter!!!   You're definitely doing some things right!

Yes - but...

Since October 15th I had two sales for a total of $2 (and that's the total for this month, which has been dreadful there). The only sites doing worse for me are no-hopers like Pixmac (where I have only 300 images anyway - an experiment that really didn't pan out) and Pocketstock.

Essentially dead - for me anyway.

very little happening there. Couple bucks a month. Haven't seen an increase at all, sadly.

Well, I am afraid I may have spoken too soon.  Sales have picked up for me at Stockfresh, but unfortunately payouts seem to be delayed. 

I've been waiting nearly two weeks for payout.  This has never happened before.  E-mail inquiries have gone unanswered. 

It takes months to earn the $50 payout, but when finally earned, they have come within a couple of days.  Also, their customer service was responsive.  If those two things change it really isn't worth having my portfolio there anymore.  I can find some other way to earn $200/year.

I've actually had 3 sales this month, the first in many months. Still nowhere near payout though.

Not good. Please keep us updated about the payout situation Lisa....

I am surprised that anyone is having issues with late payments or unreturned questions to customer support.

I recently requested a payment and got it less than a week later, and I have had a number of email exchanges with them that have been timely and professional, including a number with Peter himself.

Sales have been steady and growing.  I should finish October with about $70 there.  The last half of October has been especially good. 

I'd encourage everyone to hang in there.  Remember how good StockXpert was?  I think Peter knows what he's doing, though it must be quite a bit more challenging these days to start a stock agency than it was when he started StockXpert.

Update:  I was paid out this evening, and they replied to my second request promptly. 

Guess it was just a hiccup.

I had two(!) sales already this month. I hope this is the beginning of a change.

Don't hold your breath.  Honestly I don't see how they are surviving. I have made 35 cents this month with 2500 images.

I just closed my account last week. After at least a year, still didn't make any where near payout. But I realize my portfolio is outdated, and a lot of the images just aren't up to the quality being submitted today. I am doing well at other places, so I will focus on those and drop the ones that aren't doing well.

SF is "deucing the futon" for me lately. Not sure what happened, but I went from multiple payouts per month to one payout every few months again.

Disappointing, really. I saw signs of life there, was optimistic about the SF going into the new year, but that's all gone now. Hopefully things will pick back up, but right now I'm not seeing anything to suggest that anything is going to get better any time soon.

LOL!  Hilarious expression!  Never heard that one before ;D

Sorry to hear sales are down though.  Might be a search change, because my sales there have picked up a lot in the new year.  In fact, it's about the only site I'm on (besides SS) that is seeing a pickup in sales.

Had 1 sale last week! That's 100% better than 2012.

So you had 0.5 sale in 2012??

100% better = doubled; 100% of 2012's sales = same as; from 0 to 1 is an infinite increase - anything times 0 is 0 :). As a percentage the increase is undefined is I think the way you'd say that.

lol on the math! Someone is a math teacher on this site. I am hoping to get accepted and start rolling in some major $$ since they are highly rated by you folks even better than all the low earners!
