34 cents for my videos. What an insult imagine what I could have earned from those not so long ago. Dire. Depressing. Unethical. Greedy

You say that is low? Wait till you get a $0.26, it doesn't even show up on the graph, the line is so thin.

Yes, it is a big insult, I feel with you.

Its pretty much over for earning in stock media. We need an artist revolution!

I don't know if a revolution could solve the problem.

Here, by us all art forms are starving. Finally they opened cinemas and theaters but with the social distancing, no art form is sustainable with a few people in the public. Also, small shops/companies are closing one after the other, nobody is doing good except maybe banks and IT.

I would agree with you. We are close to what you did described. Sadly!

Yes, it is unfortunate. I said some time ago that personally speaking nothing is more likely  to make me stop uploading than a flow of ten cent sales. It is now the case that most sales are for ten cents and it doesn't look as if that will change.In fact it's a vicious circle ... stop uploading because of the bad terms and you can't offer good work, without good work no new sales, without new sales income collapses.......but that's the way it is now. Let's hope something changes!

Not to mention clip sales $0.84 I sell. OK - there are a few with reduced, normal prices, like $19, ... But yes; $0.10 for a photo ... no comment!

There were a lot of clips sold for $600 up to $900 ($200 to $300 for author) here at SS. But this is a distant past ...

I really don't want to be a negativist, but if nothing changes so it will be the third month in a row without ODD, SOD or EL for me(One single $0.36 SOD in July is not worth taking into account.). This month is again heading to be even worse than the previous one(which was my worst ever). I'm really starting to doubt whether it's still worth staying here. I will wait until the end of the year and if this trend continues, I will go out of this. I'm not a masochist, so I really don't need this suffering.

I am starting to feel a little suspicious of so few sales now. Glitch in the system? Or something worse?

Yes, the way sales are now arriving, almost at the same time and in the same tiny yet regular number and from the same countries makes me think the machine has taken over.

Exactly same thinking here.. drops like this can`t be seasonal or because of pandemic crisis...

Here too. I hardly get something out of my work now. No, it is not a season, it is not we have been replaced with better authors, ports, footage, photos. Well - if you search among files you have and yours are on xx position, than yes. If they are well placed, then not. My logic.

It has a lot to do with crisis. A lot. It does not mean we should go to sleep, till it is over. Authors are up to 70, 80% down with their income. It will turn arround. Problem is when? As it looks now, we are at the beginning of crissis. Even if it ends right now, consequences will last years, decades. I guess work in demand is connected to crisis - covid stuff.

Ok - let us face it; top-top authors, we all know who they are (search 1 pages under term you want) - sell with no power lost. That's the way it is.

Best wishes, Trucic! :)

The 0.77 is a video sale. Not only volume but also $ is lower. IMG_20200924_081328.thumb.png.9d90a33af6a9f208af0cac7e76351d0b.png

Also, before the new earning structure I used to have around 15 On Demand sales every month. The last months I didn't even get to 5. Currently September I have had no ODs. Weird isn't it? Anyone noticed the same?
