  1. No sales, but a few zooms on both Saturday and Sunday. Encouraging, as it keeps the CTR high, if nothing else.
  2. My wow is that I got no low $ sales in March (either). I got no sales at all...
  3. Hi all I started to add to my folio earlier this year so I only have 96 images online. I realise now some of my earlier images were probably unsellable so I've gradually been changing the content of my submissions but I currently have `0` sales! Anybody have advice please on how you get that elusive first sale? Thank you.
  4. 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! 😂
  5. March was a very slow-starter, but I ended up with 18 sales (above average) for $592 gross. Six PU sales in the mix, which I think is a new record for me. No $$$ licenses to report.
  6. 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
  7. I'm pleased to be able to help. Though tread carefully on starting a Claim against anybody - make absolutely as sure as you can that is 100% - because otherwise you can be held liable for Pixsy's costs. I started around 50 Pixsy cases without realising the possible implications and then had to back peddle rapidly! Most of them are close to 100% but I can't be entirely sure and so there is a risk. The trouble is that with the way sales reporting goes across the stock industry it is actually quite difficult to be 100% sure that the possible infringer doesn't have a lice
  8. March was a little above average. 24 sales for $979 gross. 3 sales $100+
  9. Two P.U. in the sales basket this morning. May be the local farmer wants a poster in their barn.
  10. First 10 sales (2003/4) = $ 1,867 Last 10 sales = $ 223.29 (including a $95 sale...)
  11. Hope your wish comes true. Being "parsimonious" by nature, I spend as little as possible on gear. My sales remain surprisingly good (touch wood). However, I do get nostalgic about higher monthly payouts. Mine are still large enough to help cover a few bills, but lower image prices have meant that the amount I get every month has been declining. I'm especially noticing it this year, even though sales volume has been fairly consistent for some time.
  12. I too get nostalgic over those very nice textbook sales. They were my mainstay back in the day. The landscape has changed so much over the past decade that I hardly recognize it now. However, I try to take the long view. It makes me feel better. I started uploading in mid 2007 and made 30 sales in 2008 with only several hundred images on sale. I'm now just shy of $90K gross, which is more than I had expected to make at what has been for me an enjoyable part-time pursuit.
  13. Reading this thread with interest as I was unsure if sales got updated on Mondays like the zooms etc, went onto my account - and - a Saturday Sale! 😊 Only £ presentation, but it is the second sale of one of my old archive images from the 90's I've been scanning during this lockdown, so it's a good sign
  14. Because Alamy wants clients to download images in the hope that they will then use them and pay for them. The long delays tend to be with distributor sales and that is an opt-in sales channel. Other agencies such as Getty only report once they have been paid and the payment has cleared. Alamy lets us know about sales as soon as they are reported. Yes, the Alamy tracking system can be improved but insisting that all downloads are paid for would drive clients away.
  15. There is much to be gained by studying the forums at length, in particular threads on the Introductions forum where the kind of questions you are asking come up quite frequently. Many new contributors, with some exceptions, do not make sales until they have maybe 1000 photos in their portfolio spanning a wide range of subjects. Alamy is not microstock and sales patterns differ. Study the monthly images sold and images found in use threads to see what sells, both in subject and in how the images have been processed. Look also how they are captioned and keyworded. Specifically takin
  16. Thanks for the repost. I would like to know precisely why the count is not updated by three sales. Who should I write to?

  18. 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.
  19. I mean wow in not a good way. I haven't had a month like this since I started. Eight sales for $24 net. How about you?
  20. 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.
  21. 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.
  22. Someone is looking for square shots of the Shenandoah National Park, assume that must be for calendar use. I do have a few scans from film that are square, so added SQ and square format to the tags since the metadata won't have this for scans, I don't think. No zooms, no licenses for March. I did have two in January and two in February, all object photographed inside my houses (one in the second house, three in this one).
  23. I've flat lined! Not one sale yet this month. Zooms are well down, and CTR. I'm still doing regular uploads. Hope theres a last minute flurry this week. On a positive note, I do know of one book sale I'm waiting to see reported.
  24. I just had a photo sell for .25 which is so small compared to other sales. Is this normal or the new normal?
  25. My number of sales for March are above expectations . . . no $$$ though. I'm encouraged by the fact that half my sales are of locations other than NYC.
