I've been selling photos through Alamy for a number of years without any issues, but lately I am having problems with them sharing my photos with a third party distributor. I had signed up to this, being tempted by the sales pitch that it was another 'lucrative" avenue. I soon discovered that any sales where watered down to the point where the amount I received was both not worth it and deeply insulting. It was especially livid to discover that the third party was taking a much larger percentage. I promptly complained and opted out last April, settling for the simple arrangement of a 50/50 spilt with Alamy by giving them exclusivity. So... I was gobsmacked to learn that earlier this month (July) one of my pictures was again sold through a third party who took 40%, leaving me with 30%. I have written again to Alamy, demanding an explanation and demanding that this stops NOW! Have any other photographers out there had this problem? Can you advise me what legal avenues I can take if they continue to fail to honour the agreement? And can anyone recommend another photo agency? PS I am already braced for the usual Covid-19 excuses, as though no-one else has to deal with the situation.
Hi all, Had my first sale last month so I'm curious about the commission structure. I noticed there was: - 30% alamy commission - 40% distributor commission Is this right? I seem to remember 50% commission but its been a while since I read the fees structure. Thanks Hai
Sorry for the newbie question here. I have 2 sales. Sale Sale 75.00 75.00 x alamy Commission 50% 37.50 37.50 x Sale Sale 33.36 70.86 x alamy Commission 50% 16.68 54.18 x I don't understand how was the above calculated? First sale I understand I get 50% of $75, so that is 37.50. What about the 2nd sale? Why am I only getting $16.68 of $70.86?
