  1. 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.
  2. 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).
  3. More than half of mine are gone... Maybe someone from Alamy can tell us what's wrong...
  4. Hoping to finally break free from the pennies-sales. Just got one in for $138 and for $203.
  5. I'm not sure why I can't reproduce full details and how or why that would come and bite us all, but yeah... Everyone telling me to remove all this information, and then fully quoting me, that's helping as well.
  6. Just got 4 sales in for a total of about 110 bucks. At least I can take the missus out for dinner again.
  7. Two times the same image, presumably the same client (same bulk discount, flat rate, one for one week use, the other for one month use), one for $5.64, and one for $11.28.
  8. Myeah.. This was a distributor sale, so I'll end up with... $1,75 or something like that... Might just manage a sundae...
  9. Got another whopper in: Country: Worldwide Usage: Editorial Media: Editorial website Industry sector: Media, design & publishing Image Size: Any size Start: 01 October 2017 End: 01 October 2022 Territory: Serbia. Flat rate per image. Bulk discount. $3.41 Whoop whoop!
  10. Colblimp, it's been something I've been looking at for quite awhile already. I've had a few $3 sales for 5 years editorial use. After a looong series of under $10 I finally got a $100 again. Maybe this will be the start of better times again.
  11. I received a mail from Alamy reminding me that I'm opted out from the UK Newspaper scheme. What do you experts think? Is it worth opting in? Or is it better to leave it out?
  12. Thanks for your input, everyone. I'm still awaiting a response from Alamy. vpics: they stated they got the images from Alamy. I have it written down.
  13. I just read the post on "How many more Customers Get This Treatment", and I've been in that boat as well. I have a different issue now, which I'm hoping someone can give me some insight on. Over the past week I've sent mails to ms@, sales@, and two or three direct email addresses, none of which have responded. Not even an automated message to confirm that my mail was received. Here's my situation. I did a reverse search a month or so ago. I found two of my images used on a website (+ affiliate websites, a total of 8 or 9 in different countries) that sells prints and canvases. The images weren't credited, but the profile, believe it or not, was made in my full name, which is not the name I'm on Alamy with. One of the images was cropped from the bottom, into the subject of the picture (the picture is complete on Alamy). I contacted the website, and my mail bounced. I contacted a few days later another email stated on the website, and got no response, but a day later "my" profile was gone, and the two pictures unavailable. I contacted my lawyer, and he was responded with "We've licensed the images from Alamy. We have a general print-on-demand license agreement with Alamy. The agreement is not for specific images." My lawyer has asked to see the EULA, but they haven't produced it (yet). One of the images has never been sold on Alamy, the other image was sold on March 27 as an iQ one time use only sale for $4,06. The Wayback machine showed that the image was on the website well before March 27. Ironically, when my lawyer forwarded me the mails, I rechecked the website, and a new profile under my name had been created with three new images. Again, neither of which has been sold, ever, on Alamy. I wanted Alamy to confirm to me that these images had been sold, but they have been non-responsive so far. Now... My question: an iQ sale, stated one time use only, can this be used to sell prints and canvases by a third party? I most certainly would not agree to these terms, and definitely not for $4,06. Any input much appreciated. And if there's anyone from Alamy around, feel free to chime in.
