Lack of sales and delayed review

welcome everybody. Why are sales on Saturday and Sunday so small? Is this normal? Also, I have more than a thousand photos on my review list, and my photos have not been reviewed, even though some of them were sent a month ago. This long period makes me feel frustrated.

Yes, weekend sales are always slower, which is proof that Adobe Stock primarily appeals to an audience of commercial users, i.e. designers and creators who do it for a living and are most likely working a normal business day, Monday thru Friday.

Saturday and Sunday are non-working days. There are occasionally sales, but most of the sales are happening during the week, as you should expect. 

 

Delayed review is a matter of success. If many contributors are contributing, you need to wait. A bit like driving on the highway. Why is traffic slow, when many cars are on the street?

The review delay of such assets is now estimated at 2 months or more. I suppose what you have submitted are not actually "photos" as you say, but rather Generative AI assets.

I heard that many authors experienced a significant drop in sales after receiving a bonus payment for AI training. Nobody knows why

Well of course we did. That was a one-time non-recurring payment.

Can you possibly explain what that one time payment is for and how it would affect further sales please?

That payment was for use of assets during AI training for Firefly. You will get additional payments for newly accepted assets. Details for this have not yet specified. 

 

I don't think that any drop of sales is related to this. Firefly may impact your sales, especially if you submit generative AI. When I'm able to generate the same or better assets by generative AI, I will do instead of acquiring licences.

Over the past 10 years, there has always been an increase in September, as the working period begins after summer. Always except this year.
