  1. Update: Mine's just arrived. I wouldn't say up 30% (as with @spacecadet ) but definitely up; maybe 20%. Well into €€€, which was a nice surprise.
  2. Ironically, having started the thread, nothing for me yet. I'm assuming (more of a hope, really) that as I now live "abroad", my already useless bank is taking it's own sweet time to process the exchange.
  3. Design and Artists Copyright Collecting Society. It's a UK-based copyright collecting society, that gathers royalties - from books, magazines and library usage, etc, for visual artists like photographers, cartoonists and illustrators.
  4. Thanks @Nigel Kirby and everyone for the feedback. October looks favourite. I'll let you know when mine comes, and if it's on a par with previous ones. Stephen
  5. Thanks for all the replies. I had a feeling it was September for me last year, which is why I asked, but I could be wrong. I also claim directly like @M.Chapman and @Robert M Estall. I think Alamy get enough from me as it is - or they would if I had sold anything lately. it's more refunds than anything!
  6. Has anyone had their DACS Payback for 2019 yet? It may be a bit early - they pay "in the autumn". I just wanted to make sure I hadn't missed mine. Thanks, Stephen
  7. Thanks for the replies everyone. I think @Marianne hit the nail on the head. I was looking at the total CTR column and not "Your CTR".
  8. Yes, it is. I was thinking (obviously wrongly), that the CTR is based on how many of my own images were viewed (.i.e. 2 in this case). So, I thought 2 zooms from 2 views is 100% (if not, even, 200%).
  9. Today, I noticed that I had zooms on 2 images under the same search. I only had those images show up for the search, and no other images were zoomed. 4 images in total appeared in the search. My CTR was 50%. I'm puzzled by that, as only my images were zoomed, 2 zooms out of 2 hits. Should that not be a 100% CTR?
  10. Just noticed that today, as I usually come into the forum via the link at the bottom of the My Alamy page. Seems a bit odd, given that the forum must work to alleviate some of the pressure on the Contributor team.
  11. A similar story with this one, for a book in Ireland (mid $$). 2 sales of it on Tuesday, then both refunded yesterday. Then, another sale of it today for 10 cents more than the original fee. Someone's been busy with the refund button. Made a mess of my neat sales history page though.
  12. Another one this morning, April is getting busier than I thought, despite me getting kicked out of Live News (yes, I'm bitter!) Chelsea Flower show. Usage: Single company, editorial magazine, print and or web, multiple use 2 years Industry sector: Media, design & publishing. Mid $$
  13. 3 mid $$ sales came in this morning. Two are exactly the same use, so I expect one of those will go red. This is the other one.
  14. To be honest, I think we'd all be better off concentrating on photography than maths. Yes, the difference between 50% and 40% is 20% (actually, it's 22.22% recurring) If you start at 50%. But, we're not starting at 50%, we are starting at 100%. So, if you got 50% of 100% and now you get 40% of 100%, you have lost 10%.
  15. It's not losing you anything. It's just not making an extra 10% - not 20%, as you say. But, you have the chance it will make more money and that might be worth the wait.
