On the heels of an unexpected $70 SOD I have finally crawled over the $10,000 lifetime earnings threshold today. 

Celebrating a milestone today... it's been slow going lately, but a $44 clip sale today got me there. 🙂  

I just reached 84,000 DLs and should have 10k photos very, very soon. My first DL was on 12/12/2012. Seventh anniversary coming up.     For those who are interested whether you ca

Also, got another video sale (first sale of this one) from my rather small video portfolio.

$13 https://www.shutterstock.com/video/clip-1026017600

Not a good quality video, but unique.

How did you get a near 2 minute video approved? I've had a 59 sec long before and it was rejected for "too long".

As a frontline healthcare worker, I was one of the lucky ones to get the Pfizer Covid19 vaccine last weekend!   My arm was a bit sore for a couple of days, no big deal.  But more recently  I've also noticed that my skin has started to become scaley, I'm gnashing my teeth quite a bit, and I have this uncontrollable urge to jump into the closest swamp for a swim!

Are you someone who has allergies (food, hay fever...), David?

:lol: You made me lough! Great! Thank you! Stay healthy and a happy new year for you!

Thanks and when I get in line, I will be getting the shot as soon as I'm allowed. Since I'm stuck at home, no work and nothing but time, I should be working to do positive things, but instead I'm making these stupid little creations?

Just reached tier 3 today, but unfortunately will lower to tier 1 two days later.

A big surprise for today as well, the last download (the 250th) is $8 . It may be a gift for new year.
 

Wish happy New Year to everyone!

Hopefully you'll make it sooner next year. Let me say, you aren't missing a big difference. I made level 4 sometime in the Fall and except for OD and Singles, hardly any significant difference on the subs. I think someone bigger or better, with more files and more volume, that could matter. Except they will move up faster to the higher levels, so not a huge problem for them either.

It's all relative.

Pete, say it isn't so.  I was waiting for the cash come rolling in tomorrow.  Even if it's for one day.

To be fair and honest, I don't know, and for everyone, everything income, can be different.

Subs...

SS-levels-chart-subs.jpg

Level 1 is left, 2,3,4,5,6 and I'm still getting daily 10¢ subs. What can I interpret from that data? Most of the downloads are coming from 750 download monthly or annual accounts. Not a huge leap of logic or complex math. Say someone is level 3 instead, what's the difference? 350 annual with advanced billing is still 10c I'd get 12c. Or what's the same? Those same 750 download accounts.

Anyone level 1 to level 4 will have the majority of their downloads, from the same type account, and make the same amount of money. Level means nothing. Oh right, at level 4, I make a whopping, 2 cents more.  2cents.gif

Someone might ask, how many 12c downloads did I have in December? THREE, and they were all the same day, from the same buyer, for a series of three images. Stunning, I'm so excited, I made 6 cents more than if I was level 3. 💩

Where the levels do make a difference is SO, EL and OD. So depending on how many of those someone gets, the level does make a difference. 15%-20%-25%-30% means I'm making double what I did at level 1, which is nice!

All I'm getting at is this, the 10c downloads are not going to change or go away for most people, from level 1-4, and the amount of money difference for subs at any of those levels is insignificant. But moving up levels will make a change in a nice way to the other kinds of downloads. We shouldn't worry or care about the 10¢ downloads, but instead, pay attention to levels for the other kinds. 👍

The most positive part of the 10c downloads that I can see is, that the faster I get more of them, the sooner the other sales will go up in value. And 30% of whatever is much better than any fixed rate sub.

@Reimar, if you get more other kind of downloads than you do subs, you will see some benefits from each new level. If not, the change from one to the next, isn't as noticeable as we'd like to imagine.

In terms of famous quotes... It is what it is. 😉

Yeah, I get it Pete.  I was being facetious.  I know I'm not going to get rich in one day at level 5.  In fact, lately, SS is giving me the lowest returns compared to A and AS.  It ain't going to get better in January.

Oh well, it can't get much worse, so here I am.

Hey Pete, where did you get that chart?  I've seen it before.  Is part of it missing?  I just got a $0.16 sub sale which doesn't fit with level 5 from the table.

That chart has been floating around ever since the new pricing took effect - the original thread in announcements has it multiple times. It's also just approximate, there are always some variation to the prices, so if you're in the same ballpark, it's close enough.

The chart is based on customer prices, and because they vary somewhat between countries and currencies as well as special sales, it will never be spot on.
