  1. And how is that editorial? Just because it would be an accounting website, doesn't mean that an image on their website is editorial... It's still commercial use, in my opinion.
  2. I just had a sale recorded with the specs "Editorial website" in "General business services" industry. This seems like an oxymoron to me (and of course I'm rather disappointed in the pennies that came my way for that 5-year, any size license)... Could someone explain this to me?
  3. https://www.alamy.com/stock-photo-longhorn-cowfish-floating-about-the-sea-floor-170654812.html Editorial use any size in Germany. $2.80. Cheers for half a cup of coffee. With two crumbs of left over cake.
  4. Customer service denies that it's the same client for all the images. I find it a bit of a coincidence that the location and the use on all the (re)sold images are exactly the same. Also... I asked twice literally "How long do you allow refunds, because I think 8 months is quite a long time to get a refund." and that question was both times conveniently ignored.
  5. I posed the same question to Alamy via email, and all they said was exactly what I can see in my sales history: sale refunded and rebilled. There was no explanation as to how a sale can be refunded 8 months later. This wasn't just a "sale that was refunded and rebilled", anyway. It was a sale that was refunded twice and sold 6 times. Now I'm just wondering how many refunds I can expect still... 🤨
  6. I was going through my sales history, and two of my images keep on popping up. It starts on July 10th 2018 with one, sold to Japan. It is sold again on January 15th 2019, then again on March 26th 2019. That last one is then refunded EIGHT months later, on November 27th. It is then again sold on November 12th, refunded again on November 18th and sold again also on November 18th, and sold again on November 27th. A second image was sold, also, to Japan on September 24th and refunded on November 27th, and again sold on the same day. I reckon this is the same client every time. Anyo
  7. Yeah... No... You were just SO eager to whine about my whining, that you simply didn't care to click the link, or to check the rest from the post. My edit (18:44) was a full 5 minutes BEFORE you posted your comment (18:49).
  8. The image was included in the link. If you read past the "whining", you would've seen it.
  9. Just when you think you can't sink any lower... Sale just came in, for a whopping $1. Educational purposes, worldwide, IN PERPETUITY! https://www.alamy.com/stock-photo-ripped-up-teddy-bear-50139759.html I mean... Seriously? What the actual F? I'm opted out of all these weird subscription models, so thought that they wouldn't go this low... But hey... Every day time for a new surprise.
  10. I opted out of NU already in 2010, and I still get these peanut sales. 3$, 5$, 6$... With vague descriptions like "Flat rate per image, bulk discount" or "Revenue Share"... I wonder if there are still stock agencies out there that AREN'T microstock.
  11. Still no updates for me since 7th of Feb. Just deleted cookies and all that sh!t and logged in new, no help. (Tuesday 19th of Feb, 20:00 UTC+1:00).
  12. More than half of mine are gone... Maybe someone from Alamy can tell us what's wrong...
  13. Hoping to finally break free from the pennies-sales. Just got one in for $138 and for $203.
