Just checked my sales and I have made over $70 in the first 11 days of August with veer.  Had 2 EL's and some nice PPD sales for higher commissions than I get from most sites.  This is the best I have done with veer or their previous microstock sites. 

Has integrating microstock in to the main site paid off?  So far, it looks like it is working well for me.

I was just coming over here to happily report that I, too, am starting to see sales. I really wish they would finish reviewing the other 161 images I have in the q now, some since June. That might double my sales by right off the bat!

Great news!
I'm really happy it's been happening for you.
I had a sale too, and it gives me hope.
I like Veer very much and I wish them well.
But inspection times are way too long.
Veer collection is only about 1.5 mill images? Is that right?
They need a lot, a lot more.
To be able to compete with the fast paced world of micro they must drastically speed up their 2 months long inspection times.
It must be done.
I have images pending since early June. Illustrations related to South Africa FIFA World Cup. World Cup is long gone by now, images are still pending and I can't even delete them.
What about autumn, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas?
We need to get those images online as soon as possible.
Come on Veer! You've been so generous, commissions are great, web site is beautiful, let's get things rolling.
I'm all for it :)
 
Ah! Prices on vectors? Still very much higher? And what about JPEG versions? Can we sell them now? Any news?

I've only had one sale for $3.50 a couple of weeks ago and that is it. :-\

Lol, they must be thinking we have all gone mad, with all that checking :)

Go on Veer! :)
Call your reviewers back from holidays, (summer almost over anyway), train a few more, get everyone working on the queue, bring vector prices in line with everyone else (JPEG versions included) and let fresh, beautiful new images do their job.
To make money for all of us.
We're keeping our fingers crossed :)

Sorry Donding and Maui :)
My sale was a small one anyway. A few cents, not a big deal :)
Chin up, hopefully we will all be getting lots more soon.

Yeah, I haven't seen much of an increase either. Sales are few and far between, but they are usually a pretty decent royalty when I get them. I have gotten several ELs since I've been there too, but none this month though.

I only have 6 pix up from my initial app, the rest have been waiting to be approved forever .. but out of the 6 I recently sold 1 .... so I'm pretty stoked.  I really like their website and uploading is easy, so I hope they do well.

Haven't had a single sale there yet. And about a third of my dash for cash stuff is still pending. But out of the 300 already inspected, only 2 were rejected.

Not for me. I have to copypaste all my IPTC since they only cater for the (proprietary) Adobe scheme, and not for the open (base scheme). Uploading has been an ordeal. I got 200 pics accepted and 400 in the q for weeks. If I get my upload fee, I'll pay somebody to copypaste the xtra 300 pics waiting in the edit zone.

number 5 earner for me the last 2 months, long way from dreamstime but well ahead of BigStock and 123rf. It would be nice to see the 700+ images I have in the queue approved.

After many months with a few sales to tease me I just saw 130 dollars worth today...so definitely worth the time.

Warning: Odd situation ahead:

After MONTHS of zero sales and spectacularly high view counts...I got a few sales. The really odd thing is that the view counts dropped nearly to zero during the short period I got those sales. ?????

If the sales/view chart is accurate there is an weird inverse ratio going on. The fewer sales the greater the views, and with fabulous views zero sales. ???

If nobody looks at my images any more I'll make a fortune.
