  1. Nine sales, minus a refund* from last month, $90.70 net, which is my best earning month of 2020. Zooms and CTR low. * which may well have been a genuine error as it sold twice with almost identical details.
  2. If they remember to report that they've used the image in the first place.
  3. Hmmm, it's complex for sure. Hadn't thought about the freelance thing. Thanks for the reply.
  4. I've had an Alamywhack net me less than an average UKNS sale. We're always told it's not about the rareness or beauty of the image, but the discounting ability of the buyer. Pretending otherwise is having our heads in the sand.
  5. I'm opted in; but still, this post further erodes my trust in Alamy. When I was opted out, all that happened was that I got fewer sales. It has been said many times that UKNS buyers just didn't see opted out files. How can that be a "more complex and confusing search experience"? How stupid do you think these customers are? How stupid do you think we are when you feed us this guff? If I'm buying anything online and filter my options by price, I get options which are within my budget, and I don't need to see more expensive (or, indeed, cheaper) options. That's a sma
  6. Oh, I hadn't thought about bankruptcy! Thanks for the suggestion.
  7. I know about refunds, we don't like them, but hopefully it helps to keep customers happy therefore coming back and buying in future. This one I had seems a bit strange. Before I take it up with Alamy, does anyone have an explanation? Date of invoice: 11th June 2020 Use: Usage: Magazines and books ; Start: 17-June-2020 ; End: 17-June-2025 Paid: August 2020 Refunded: September 2020. If they didn't actually use the file in June, why did they pay for it in August, then get a refund? (It hasn't been repurchased) Surely they'd just have said "we're not going to use it"
  8. A 'better month': 8 sales, $77.16 net. Views and zooms very low.
  9. Ooh, Elisabeth came to one of the Scottish Alamy meetings. (if anyone can remember what a meeting was)
  10. 8 sales for me, but an unrebought refund left my month on $34.20 net. Worse, only 14 zooms over the whole month. 😞
  11. 7 sales, $27.62 net, worst month for a long time. Funnily enough, I sold a file via my own website (I don't sell online, the buyer contacted me directly) for $10 - a photo which Alamy wouldn't have accepted because of the camera!
  12. Unthinkable to me, but there must be desperate people in many countries who fall on what seem like cheap meds.
