so if you only sell 0,10 images, you need 1000 sales to make 100$ dollars a month ............i'm used to making around a 100 sales a month...boy oh boy this is bad and on Jan 01 selling "on demand" images won't make any difference...

And nothing can be sold cause of gap between disabling and hiding from live. You know nothing but make cringe here.

So if everybody here works together. How many photos can the sell. My photos from Bob Geldof, Dutch Royal Family. In couple of days all gone. The photos from the Mayor of Amsterdam all gone. You cant make 19000 photos like me if you dont work 24/7 What did you photograph?

Portfolio disabled too, out of solidarity. Before this change, the time spent in uploading photos did not worth the money in exchange (at least for a European, maybe in countries where salaries and cost of living are lower it was good). It was a fun hobby more than a business. Now the fun has gone away

I am not uploading new images to SS anymore. I suggest those who are still uploading images, submit the smallest image sizes that are allowed. Your work is worth more than 10c.

4.112 how many photos did you have?

not everyone can afford to disable/delete portfolios. some rely on the income to put food in mouths and a roof over their head. we should remember who the common ENEMY now is, SS for even forcing us to make such a choice

You wait and let others fill their pockets with YOUR 2/3 of sale price? Great mindset you have indeed!

In an email that is going out today, we are announcing that we will be updating the earnings structure that determines how much you get paid when customers license your work. We are making this adjustment in order to reflect changes in the market for creative content, help to create fair opportunities for all our contributors, and reward performance with greater earnings potential. 

Starting on June 1st, 2020, your earnings for each license will be based on your Image Level or your Video Level.

earnings-for-videos-forum.png.803eddaf31ab4c904b5d8d660bc0495a.png

On June 1, you will be placed in an Image Level and a Video Level based on your download count so far in 2020. The email you receive today will let you know which levels you are in as of this morning. 

How does it work?

  • These new levels are based on the number of times your content is licensed rather than your lifetime earnings. 
  • All contributors reset to level 1 for both images and videos every year on January 1st.
  • There are separate levels for images and for videos, and you graduate through them independently based on your download count in each category.

You are quit Kate, i dont see posts from you

I agree: we can't demand, you don't know the situation, some people need to eat and they have no any jobs.

Sadly, my income become 10+ times worse if compare to pre-corona period and now I cut off this joke. But if someone has money from SS which is enough for surviving I wish them good luck. They aren't enemies. Just people in need. I wish I could have at least something, too. But no.
