  1. I have noticed two things: 1. more sales to the USA 2. price crash for those sales $15 for a book to the USA??
  2. I had a good end-of-month surge thankfully, as most of the month was very poor. Here's a couple of calendar sales, mid $$:
  3. Am I correct in assuming that there is no way to search for a DACS credited photo? I had a TV sale pop up this month, for a very decent amount, but can find no trace of it online. Likewise, I was watching a programme about Ronnie Scott's Jazz Club in London on BBC 4 some time ago (> a year) and saw that they used one of my pics but it has never popped-up in a DACS payment, to date. Not sure how people keep track of their DACs sales. 🤨
  4. What happened to what before? Do you mean before Alamy started to claim? What happened was that the amount made available to DACS was divided between those who made their own claims. Anybody in the world with UK sales for books/magazines/TV use could have done that. So before Alamy started to make DACS claims Alamy contributors who did not make a personal claim received nothing, Alamy received nothing. One significant change ( for those of use who claim direct) since Alamy started claiming, and made it a contractual condition, is that Alamy no longer off
  5. Two ASCRL payments dropped into the Sales Report today...I think it is the U.S. equivalent to DACS. A total of little more than $300! A very warm welcome to unexpected income! Cheers Alamy!
  6. third month end in a row with an adjustments from Affiliate charges for me, and of course it's always on bigger licences, and still no clarification from Alamy why these have increased so much since the contract change, and what value they have in attracting sales
  7. 3 sales popped in today mid $$ calendar high $ mid $ every little helps
  8. Add a splash of lager and make it a shandy. Live a little! 😎 Some calendar sales just dropped in - mid-$$ - including this shot of Mevagissey, a Cornish fishing village...
  9. Nice sales today so far, e.g. Low $$$ Country: Worldwide ; Usage: Editorial ; Media: Television (editorial) ; Print run: Unlimited transmissions ; Placement: Set decoration ; Start: 30-November-2021 ; End: 30-November-2031 Mid $$ Country: Worldwide ; Usage: iQ sale: Single company - multiple use editorial onlyEditorial print + digital use. ; Industry Sector: Media, design & publishing ; Start: 30-November-2021 ; Duration: Unlimited

  11. I've now 'enjoyed' a flurry of UKNS sales, so I could stretch to a lemonade!
  12. Two end-of-the-month sales popped up today, this one a rare (for me) UK newspaper license (low $$).
  13. I would think that what Alamy is doing is directly following on from the subscription deals ( or photo packs) that the competition introduced long ago and which they no doubt feel are required to try and maintain market share. Fortunately, even now, most of my routine Alamy sales would be classed as 'extended licences' in micro-stock terminology. Even PU licences are way higher than the 'normal' micro licence though they do offer 'perpetuity'. Country: Worldwide Usage: Personal use, Personal prints, cards and gifts. Non-commercial use only, not fo
  14. Yup! I have had four sales to date with that POD site for an average of £19/sale. Joined them Christmas last year. Only 344 pictures with them too. Not put any photos with them for some time now. Must get going again. Allan
  15. On the flip side, that is only 157 sales per day total across several thousand of their contributors. A few people make regular sales, but not many. I don't think it's an undiscovered pot of gold waiting at the end of a rainbow.
  16. Here's an interesting comparison with a UK based POD: "In the last 365 days we have paid out £180,155.49 in commissions, with 8,208 sales" That = 21.95 Average Commission per sale in the last year! Phil
  17. For information: ten of my RM sales this month have been 'in perpetuity' and another is Duration: unlimited; several of these are small value sales. From my personal perspective, they are becoming the rule, rather than the exceptions. Also in most other sites, even though a licence is RF, there are many uses, especially for larger commercial publishers, which necessitate the purchase of an extended licence.
  18. My gross average price since I joined in 2006 is $40.48 (total income divided by total sales).
  19. I recognize the central point of this discussion, lower prices at the end. This week alsof had a final sale of 0,21 cts. After a month with sales of 1.50, 6 and 11, it will be my lowest per image sale ever in the last 8 years. Call it microstock or whatever, the net-result is disappointing and a middlefinger to all photographers doing their best to produce fine and special images for the market. Beside prices the 50/50 deal also changed to 40/60, which also felt like' 'take-it-or leave it'.
  20. PA OWN Alamy. They are the same company. As long as Alamy continues to have a live news feed - and I certainly hope that continues - and has staff dedicated to running that news feed, it is in nobody's interest that they don't do a good job so as not to compete with another part of the same company. As long as Alamy continue in the business of news it is in everyone's interest that they do it as well as possible. When we turn up in Westminster and see that Stefan Rousseau is there we know we all know a) we're in the right place and b) he's probably going to get the sales. But he isn
  21. I got the Roomba i3 that empties itself, but if you can afford it or get a good deal, the i6 or is it i7?? Might be even better. Although I sure couldn’t see anything wrong with the way mine cleaned today. It normally was $600 and I got it for $400. I got mine from Walmart, but Kohl’s, Amazon and other places have been having deals also. I do the same thing, Michael. I got my air fryer and Roomba for myself since I no longer can hint to a spouse. These sales are a good time to do it.
  22. 2005 - $126 (4 sales) 2006 - $127 2007 - $200 2008 - $189 2009 - $114 2010 - $111 2011 - $74 2012 - $59 2013 - $72 2014 - $52 2015 - $37 2016 - $31 2017 - $37 2018 - $36 2019 - $36 2020 - $32 (onwards and downwards)
  23. What's interesting about this snap of a modern landmark building in Tribeca, NYC, is it was a PU sale for the full price . . . and that was the best fee I've had so far of the 9 sales I've had in November 2021.
  24. Simple* average result from those who have provided numbers so far (thanks). *This isn't a weighted average as it ignores the number of sales from each contributor. i.e. those with the most sales have the same influence on the average result as those with the least. (I did this because not everyone has provided the number of sales in each year). Mark
