  1. Yes, that's true. There was a significant time lag with quarterly reporting, which gave enough leeway for refunds to occur without our knowing about it. With sales being reported almost in "real time" (odd expression), the situation is much different.
  2. I started a similar topic not knowing this one existed. Wim suggested I post here and maybe revive this post. Here is my original post. This comes from perhaps having too much time on my hands, but I divided My total sales to date into the total dollar amount that appears on My Alamy Dashboard. I came up with $103.81. I thought that was pretty good. Of course if I used return per image on sale it wouldn't look so good. Does anyone else want to post their number? Maybe it will cheer some of the new people up a little.
  3. According to Sprocket this is in the EULA: Licence cancellation Provided you have not used the Image(s) you may cancel the Licence within 30 days from the date of the Invoice by sending Alamy an email with notification of the cancellation to the following address: sales@alamy.com. You may cancel the Licence within ten (10) days from the date of the Invoice without charge. If you cancel less than thirty (30) days after the Invoice date, a cancellation fee of fifty (50%) percent of the Invoice will be charged. After thirty (30) days, no cancellations will be accepted and the fu
  4. These are Stockimo sales, as in money being exchanged? Or are they uploads?
  5. Thank you, Arletta. I'm thinking of going out to a Polish restaurant in Queens for lunch . . . if they do lunch; I have to check the details. I heard the owner on the radio yesterday. Maybe you could tell me what dishes to order? I have several shots with a sale notice in the window, but for some reason this is the one that sells. Number of sales, Alan.
  6. Hi all, quick question about refunds. I recently (May 16th) made my first sale here, single placement editorial website usage, through Alamy's distributor program. Using Google image search I quickly found the website using it. Even though it didn't sell for much (around $4 after Alamy and distributor cuts), I was annoyed to see it refunded more than a month later (July 31st). A quick search in this forum shows that refunds after the 30 day period are quite normal, but all the posts I found on the matter were regarding sales for print, while my image is currently still online on the
  7. I don't start chasing for at least 6 months, particularly for newspaper sales. Unfortunately it is a fact of life these days. dov
  8. I'm with you. I'll be back to regular work in a jiff, but felt frustrated at being left out of Stockimo. I'm sure not hearing about Stockimo sales, that's for sure.
  9. I may have mis-stated something, as I have only one pseudonym. They ask for contributor's name in the advanced search. There's no Stockimo section in Manage Images or anywhere else, because Stockimo is a separate entity from Alamy. Everything is done through the app (upload, keywords & caption, sales, payment, delete). Stockimo images are offered to buyers through the Alamy collection. There may be a delay in getting the images visible on Alamy, don't know.
  10. It does happen. People have reported sales within a day or two, or even hours, of uploading. But competing with 50+million it is always going to be as rare as winning the lottery. News of course is diffierent.
  11. If you are comparing with microstock, don't. You will have far fewer sales here. With 100 images you can expect about one sale a year.
  12. Bad spelling comes with frustration. I'd've been depressed. What looks too good to be true most likely is not true. But sales at these prices are seen, so, of course, we believe they are trustworthy.
  13. It's not even safe when it's in the bank. I have had cleared and paid out sales refunded before now. Andy
  14. Thanks for finding this SShep, first time I've seen one of my sales reported in this thread! Sue
  15. Not sure when I passed the 1000 mark as we didn't have a "handy dashboard" back then but presently at 1875 licences since 2003. Very slow start with only one sale on 15 images in first year but that was enough to kick start my uploading and more sales followed. Pearl
  16. Well the drought is over thankfully. Two run of the mill sales over the last couple of days brings an end to a dismal period for me. I might yet just sneak past last years total after all. With just under 600 new images added this year I thought I'd be in a better position at this time. Here's hoping the remaining months are good to us
  17. +1 Kumar Interesting to hear that I'm not the only one experiencing this phenomenon. My "ranking" appears to remain fairly consistent, so I can't speculate why there is more variation in sales numbers this year, except that the gods might be taunting me even more than they usually do.
  18. Congrats to David. We're at 912 sales since 2010, hoping to reach the 1K benchmark by the end of the year.
  19. Limping along here with 221 sales in 10 years. Not too bad for an old retired secondary-editorial part-timer.
  20. Well done David Half way there myself 550 sales since 2008 but most images uploaded in last 3 years Graph shows a steady rise each year so progress and most images shot within 10 miles of home
  21. David I'm sorry if I appeared to be taking a cheap shot, and I'm not trying to belittle reaching 1000 sales for you or anyone else. You have four times as many shots as my portfolio and by no means a bunch of second rate hopefuls. It's the "can't figure it out" aspect that makes me uncomfortable a little. I used to trade on the idea of being a photographer who knew how things worked and what to produce, either as a commissioned photographer or a supplier of stock. I don't like the impersonal "just keep on keeping on" way of doing things And YES, I do appreciate your generous technical inp
