As ever, well out in front were Shutterstock with another strong month and income circa double of my second place site.
Second place went to Istock with another impressive month of 45 downloads -down from May but much higher than I had been seeing in previous years (and that's with limited uploading in 2017). As previously there were some very low paying subscription sales but others paying much higher than the old $0.28 fixed rate. I said I would see how the new percentage rates worked out in practise and I think it is fair to say that while I am seeing results like these I will be sticking with them.
Picfair took third place with another single sale. Looks like things are picking up here.
Fourth place was for Redbubble with a further three product sales (T shirt, Baby clothes, Sticker).
Bigstock saw fifth place with 13 downloads.
In sixth place were Dreamstime with 9 downloads with all being subscription sales.

123rf slipped to seventh place with 13 downloads (no big sales like last month sadly).
Alamy were in eighth place with a further single sale. Good to see no further refunds and my first sales are starting to show as cleared funds.
Ninth place went to Fotolia with 3 downloads.
Canstock had a single download to put them in tenth place.
Finally we have Mostphotos with two small subscription downloads.

July looks like it will prove, as expected, the start of the Summer Slowdown with fairly low sales on most sites so far. Updates will follow in due course. Regards, David.
