  1. A couple of low-mid $$ calendar sales have also just dropped. Country: United Kingdom ; Usage: Consumer goods ; Media: Calendar ; Print run: up to 20,000 ; Placement: Inside ; Start: 01-January-2022 ; End: 01-January-2023 ; Additional Details: Includes thumbnail use on the back page
  2. Chocolate covered insects, or fried...me either. If I were starving, who knows. I think whatever you are fed as a child is just normal food and you don’t think it’s repugnant. You could never get me to eat brains or mountain oysters, but others do. I grew up eating fried chicken livers and gizzards. Some would never let a gizzard cross their lips, including my kids! I used to see them offered at the store delis, but no longer. I nearly burned down my kitchen once because I was out of oil. I put shortening in the pan to heat up and melt to fry chicken livers, then went to get the mail. I
  3. Fujitsu office building in Bracknell, Berkshire, UK Presentation - one of two sales of office buildings in the same town. Actually looks like it might be a genuine presentation for once! 😂
  4. Hi, You seem to be missing that stock photo agencies take a cut of any sales - to pay for hosting the website, taking and processing payments, advertising to clients etc. Your total sales value is the gross value that Alamy has charged clients, before Alamy takes its cut. Note also that Alamy reports what it has invoiced clients, not the money it has actually received - if the client subsequently doesn't pay, you don't get paid. And clients don't pay straight away. So your current cleared balance will always lag behind the declared due amount to you. If you go on your Alamy Da
  5. It occurs to me that people may not know where to look for detailed information. On the Dashboard click on Account Balance. Then set the date for a reasonably long period of time. On top is the summary but as you scroll down you see each individual sale, the Alamy commission, the commission to any distributors and whether or not the amount has been paid to you, or cleared, or uncleared. It's a good idea to try everything on the Dashboard so you can see all the information available to us. I suspect Mrrrky may be with other agencies that don't report sales until AFTER they have clea
  6. Two P.U. in the sales basket this morning. May be the local farmer wants a poster in their barn.
  7. I have never heard of an incorrect cleared balance. You can see the details of each sale in the 'Balance of Accounts' tab of your dashboard. It shows which have cleared and which have not. I'm also not sure what you mean by 'the count is not updated by three sales'. Which count? Do you mean you are aware of 3 sales which have not been reported in 'Sales History'?
  8. Cleared Balance only change when the payment has cleared. Are you saying you have sales that show as "cleared" in your sales report but have not been reflected in your Cleared Balance?
  9. Thanks for the repost. I would like to know precisely why the count is not updated by three sales. Who should I write to?

  11. It might help if you look at all the individual sales to see what the price was and what the Alamy commission was and which sales were cleared and which are waiting for payment from the client. Just looking at the summary can be confusing. Paulette
  12. ah yes I understand better me in total I have this: Total sales: $ 34.08, but for the moment I only have $ 17.20 the rest I will have when the customer has paid Alamy.
  13. Hello, I am new to Alamy. I only made a few sales, I don't quite understand the count of these sales: Balance carried forward: $ 5.54 Total sales: $ 34.08 Commission / fees: - $ 21.38 Total payments to you: 0.00 USD Balance carried forward: $ 18.24 Cleared balance: $ 17.20 Next payment date: Not due in the end what do i earn above because when I go to the main page of my account it marks me: Current cleared balance: $ 17 when I am told that I have sold 5 photos for $ 45 that worries me. Thank you for your answers
  14. I agree with Chuck, sales for me were through the roof (six) but the royalties are low enough that my cut won't be enough for a payout this month, in fact it will only net me about half of what I need. Four were $, one barely $$ and the other mid $$ it's nice to be paid for a hobby, but god help those who rely on it for income, particularly with the value of currency ever declining.
  15. Is your current cleared balance under $50? If so, you won't get paid until it is $50 or above. If you have made sales, the customers might not have paid Alamy and they have to pay them before we get our share. John.
  16. I have a problem. My Current Cleared Balance: has been on hold since last year, not updated despite making some sales. You can check because from my calculations I should receive the payment having exceeded the minimum threshold. Luca Ponti
  17. I had a few very low $ sales in 2019 with Novel Use, so I opted out of the scheme last year. Which, I think April is the month to do that.
  18. This a good thing, bad thing kinda post. I was watching a the CBS Sunday Morning news/entertainment show today and was happily surprised to see a couple of my photos used in segment on science and religion and getting the Covid vaccine. It was mostly a narrative by Dr Francis Collins, the head of the National Institutes of Health. So they used a picture of Dr Collins that I shot and showed up in my sales on March 23rd....but the other photo, an aerial of the NIH campus, has not shown up as sold in the last year and it is exclusive to Alamy. I'll have to contact Alamy tomorrow. I was able t
  19. Unfortunately at the moment it is only a very small number of sale reports that include details about the user. This thread was started as a way of asking Alamy to provide this information more regularly when they are able to. As you suggest it may be more difficult in the case of distributor sales.
  20. Just a single click to get into Lightboxes from the Dashboard link and another click to create a new one (+ box top right of screen). It would help if there was an easier way of adding images though. I use mine to keep track of potential DACS-eligible images (on the rare occasions these days I make such as sale!) and to see if zooms have resulted in sales. It would be nice to have an 'add to lightbox' option on the Sales History and Zoom screens.
  21. Notice in the window of Manchester Metropolitan University's Cambridge Hall, Manchester, uk. On 25th September the media reported that Manchester Metropolitan University, Manchester City Council, and Public Health England had instructed students at Manchester Metropolitan University’s Birley Hall and Cambridge Hall to self isolate for 14 days. This followed a surge of Covid 19 cases there. Country: Worldwide Usage: Editorial Media: Editorial website Industry sector: Media, design & publishing Image Size: Any size. Just $ but all sales welcome. Signs do sell.
  22. Hi! I noticed that some of my images have been published and used months before the actual sales. My first image was published in 2 Dec 2015 so I was hoping for a license renewal but I noticed that the licensing period is registered as "Start: 01 March 2016 End: 01 March 2021". It means that they've got 3 free months. Is this common? The possible renewal should happen from 2 Dec 2020 and now that we’re in April nothing has still happened. Another strange thing is that the purchase date is 20 April 2016. My second question is about license renewal. Does it usually happen automatically o
  23. 2 for $64. On the plus side, from the start of the year my views have been running at 40% higher than this period last year. But (and there's always a but) my zooms have been 30% less which is now beginning to eat into what has been a pretty stable and decent CTR - now 0.58, down from 0.73 at the start of the year.
  24. 3 sales for $158 (all exclusive). One $$$ among them. In Q1 of 2021 I reached and slightly exceeded the revenue of the whole 2020. Also my best month ever as for revenue.
  25. Worse year ever to date...7 sales, max $21 and min $3....no reason at all to be positive!
