Just in. Somebody bought my image of a FedEx building exterior for cards, wall, etc. non-commercial, of course. ;) should make a lovely wall print.

Well... I suppose it could be a nostalgic former employee looking for a reminder print of the good old days at FedEx to hang on the wall (or to throw darts at).

A search some time ago on "illum copenhagen" (a department store) has resulted in a personal use sale yesterday.

 

Not the most obvious image for a personal use.

 

As Betty and John say, should make a lovely wall print  - for a former employee  :D

This one was only $8.52.

 

I often take a stroll down the Strøget in Copenhagen - cannot help taking a Captain Cook when there.

Had one PU last month and 3 this month all for really odd items which clearly would not be for PU.

 

I just deactivated the PU option on my RM images as it just seems ripe for abuse

A PU sale just came through. They must think they have great deal to get a chimney, chimney protector and TV aerials for so little.  :rolleyes:   Shall I report this and get it refunded? Hmmm not sure.

Is P.U. a way of selling as microstock without actually calling it microstock.  ??

Another what I assume is a PU sale dropped in. That will be verified tomorrow when it shows up on my sales page. The price is 19.99 which is what PU is in the US.
That's the second sale of a storefront!! this month. I hope somebody enjoys their print of a furniture store.
One could think, hey, a sale is better than a kick in the pants, right?

But if this person is using the image for commercial purposes, I'm missing out on 3-4 times that amount.

Betty - Just hit the download button on the sales report, and you can then open a spreadsheet file with the same details that you'll see on the sales report page in a few hours.

My 'Download sale report' doesn't give usage - just the numbers.

Do you have all those boxes ticked?

As Geoff said, perhaps you have only a few boxes ticked? I use this download facility whenever I have a sale and it shows all the details.

Actually, it shows even more details than the Sales screen as the last column shows the real buyer's country for 'Worldwide' use. It used to be important for DACS as 'worldwide' did not count.

Thanks for that.
It's for Presentation & Newsletters. But it just says Worldwide, not the country. Same price as PU.
Betty
Edit...woopdedoo, that makes two sales for the month. My share, $20. I can't get a full tank of gasoline for that. I do drive all over the city for these types of images. Glad my Subaru gets good gas mileage.

Yes! I didn't see it at first because I'm on my iPad and didn't scroll sideways. I was shocked at all I didn't see, lol.

No worries. I love my iPad to bits but sometimes its use is tricky. Sometimes I'm even mad at it!

I'd wondered if you could see your download on the iPad. I've tried on mine. I get the headers, but not the figures.

Hi Cecile. Do you mean uploads? My submissions? I can see the images if I scroll down. There is a big blank space opposite the submission numbers for some reason.
