  1. ODD sales seem to have completely disappeared. Last month only 1 ODD, this month nothing so far.
  2. I am in the same boat like you, since January everything changed for me. What I used to earn in 1 month, now it takes me about 3 months to earn the same amount.
  3. It's a nightmare, each month worse than the next.
  4. First no payout this month after 4 years of hard work.
  5. August is the worst month here since I started 4 years ago.
  6. It has been a year that I haven't even taken a single picture and the way things are going I do not see myself taking pictures any time soon.
  7. Sales are so poor this month that I have doubts whether I will reach payout this month.
  8. The entire model now feels like a Ponzi scheme to me.
  9. My earnings are disastrous, what I used to make in 1 month, now it takes me 3 months to make that amount.
  10. I had just 1 sub yesterday, never had such slow sales
  11. Terrible month, also I do not think it will get better. Microstock is dead, it's time to find other alternatives.
  12. Sales this month are even worse than previous month, looks like our days are numbered here.
  13. You can check this link https://kevinstandagephotography.wordpress.com/2020/03/13/konark-sun-temple-odisha-orissa-surya/. He may have such images, he is also a SS contributor https://www.shutterstock.com/g/Kevin+Standage. Otherwise you will have to search in stock agencies.
  14. Just 1 sub yesterday, so not only they have reduced commissions but also cut the number of downloads. I will never be uploading a single picture here.
  15. I do not know, without seeing samples we cannot decide although I find SS reviewing process confusing. Sometimes, they accept everything or they reject everything. I am sure it is a malfunctioned bot reviewing stuff. Also, I do not plan on uploading anything here after what they did to us.
  16. There are lot of good images that haven't sold for years because they are buried deep under the spam and poor quality images that is cluttering the site. The trick would be get rid of all the poor quality content and give the good quality images a chance to shine. Several years ago, SS had an undiscovered tab that used to comprise all the unsold pictures, but then they got rid of it. Now it is just popular and new.
  17. Slow sales and poor revenues, it's all over for me.
  18. 90% of the sales are between 0.10 to 0.15 cents. It is no longer microstock, it has become nanostock.
  19. poor sales along with 0.10 cent royalties, very deadly combination. WME every month.
  20. Level 4 subs (0.10, 0.11, 0.12, 0.14, 0.15, 0.17, 0.21, 0.59), ODDs (1.57, 2.59, 2.94). Majority of them are 0.10 subs
