With portfolio of 10,000 videos.

Did the reality of $79 prices kicked in? No wonder they had sales before if they were dumping the whole industry...

Give them the benefit of the doubt until end 2019. Similar for me although I just got a rare 4K sale. Slightly down on last year with more clips

I am down to almost nothing. Maybe one sale every 6-8 weeks. Sigh.

With my 300 images, I dropped from one sale a few months ago, to none.  So much for my retirement.

The same here.  Sales just disappeared there in recent weeks.  They may be on their way out.

Photos are dead everywhere, so I don't think you can expect much from photo sales on video platforms such as Storyblocks and Pond5

4 photos

Not completely dead, I get few sales in a month but considering their recent commission cut, I was expecting more sale numbers.

Sorry. Agencies have a history of cutting commissions with the promise of greatly increased sales/ income, only to pocket the extra cash and contributors seeing nothing from it.

The meme is from a Coen brothers film on netflix, the guy's about to be hanged for a second time and speaking to the guy next to him.

Oh, I need to watch the series then :)

My sales have reduced after the commission cut, but I am not too concerned for this agency.
Focusing more on Big 4.

Same here. I was beginning to wonder I'm the only one.

So much about "this is great news for contributors!". Sure. Like always. Bye storyblocks.

Same here. Havn't had a sale since Oct.  Used to get a few each month.  I stopped uploading to storyblock or videoblock whatever you want to call them.  I don't think they will survive.
