Hi there!
At the moment, I am past the 100$ limit, so I can't say I share your frustation completely. But I presume we share the reason of your frustation. My sells went down lately, so I am stuck at the same amount of revenue for over a week now. Still, I keep my hopes up, that it will get better! Good luck to you!

I so hate when that happens!!! surprisingly.. I had the most sales on DT in one month this month in april. 23 days in I have had 18 sales... what I cant understand is how almost 700 images here has gotten me only 111 sales ever. I read an article about finding photos on here and the frustration of it..I even have tried to find my work by using keywords and it is like a needle in a haystack. are we getting too large here?
good luck on that last sale.. It will happen!

I am at around $190. Do your research. It is a must. Stock is a huge subject where you need to get into the psychology of the buyers and understand the search placement algorithm. I spent a serious amount of time in that and I am getting satisfactory results now. I still don't upload or shoot on weekends and devote the entire time to studying bestsellers and taking notes in a notepad. Might seem like I'm studying guinea pigs... but... ;)

Serious efforts would pay back. There are too many big cameras around these days. Photographer skills and equipment - neither make a huge difference now. So take awareness and research on your side. Why lose time being frustrated? Study some bestsellers for a break.

I have to be patience selling images, now you're very close. April started very well for me, but since last week sales have been very slow.

The last $10 always seems to take so long.

No monthly cut off here so you can request payment as soon as you hit the 100 and DT is one of the quickest to process payment.

I have to admit it must be frustrating. I lived something similar lately because the only sales I was getting were subscription ones, which only gave me about 0.35$ each. My last sale though gave me 1.61$, which gave me some hope (it feels weird to say that I have hope with less than 2$, but anyways...). So in the end, I would say don't think about it and one day you'll enter your personal account and find that you've hit the 100$ mark. Good luck!
