  1. Volume was quite down this month but saving grace were two decent sods ($57 and $20). Without them would have been worst month both in terms of downloads and $.
  2. To op - what I see is that you try to write a story around the photo in question, instead of describing factually what is visible.
  3. i did. this years 1099m has blanks for payees TIN, unlike last years apparently
  4. Yeah normally it goes through without payees TIN, but for some reason this time around tax software kept complaining about empty EIN/TIN field
  5. It's weird i couldnt find this info anywhere on shutterstock itself, but apparently it is listed in some sec filings. For anyone who cares - it seems to be: EIN # 80-0812659 https://sec.report/Ticker/SSTK
  6. Does anyone know what is the shutterstocks TIN/EIN number for tax purposes? 1099-misc does not list it for me, yet turbotax seems to want to have me specify it for ss.
  7. On average generic ports tend to sell between 2 and 5% of total images per month. Its not obviously any sort of guarantee and can vary greatly based on actual content that you have.
  8. For what it's worth - I've looked through your images port, and majority of it is repetitions of same subjects; you probably have about 15-25 unique subjects (unique to your portfolio) from 455 photos right now. Most of subjects are very common (beads, cacti, plants in pots), there are thousands of those in the database already. It will be very hard for you to compete with such images. On average, people here tend to sell about 4% of their port per month (some much more, some much less). With 25 unique subjects that's about 1 per month for you. Composition on many shots is not that great. You do have some nice shots, i like this one: https://www.shutterstock.com/image-photo/stone-jewellery-lots-different-stones-colorful-1344537014?src=pYeCMJhDrX9KM_Buug7-0w-1-12 But having said that, this image (along with others) is lacking keywords and description. If buyers cannot find your photo, they wont be able to buy it. Good luck.
  9. Yup as others I've had number of 25c SODs in past months.
  10. Reached total of 700 images sold, minor milestone.
  11. DT has like 120 categories and it's a pain to navigate; i hardly find adding more categories that useful. Plus whatever drone captures probably already falls under pre-existing category
