  1. Hello, I do not come here too often but this time I got truly shocking price for my image and do not really know whom to ask to answer my question. My latest sale price is $ 1.25 and this is RM license, the previous one was $ 5.03 and still another one 4.99 but the last one is the worst. Does anybody know what that means and how is that possible? All sales are RM. Is Alamy now a microstock agency as those prices are microprices? I sent my question to support but surprise, surprise, there is no support anymore but automated answers. What is going on here? Is it still worth uploading at all? And is there any human at Alamy to be in touch with contributors? I used to get an answer to all my questions and it was quite fast but no more? I must admit, i do not like it at all. It would be great to get some support from the contributors at least.
  2. Is this as low as we can go - I have had some cheap sales but these take the biscuit - I have had 3 sales today all with the following details: Country: United KingdomUsage: EditorialMedia: Magazine - print, digital and electronicPrint run: up to 500,000Placement: InsideImage Size: 1 pageStart: 01 December 2018End: 01 December 2023Duration: 3 months. Any placement: Inside or cover. Full page - not sure where - it says placement: inside then lower down it says 3 months inside or cover. Magazine for five years, full page, so are these newspaper sales? I did think only personal use could have such a low price (all 3 for same price just over $6 each gross).
  3. just some examples: extreme of negligence and people complain of ridiculously low sales in spite of competitive images on board!! these images are captioned as Air Show and keyworded for the same.
  4. There's an interesting discussion on a post in Let's Talk About Pics regarding whether we should or should not discuss image pricing on the forum. It's buried in the July Comp thread. The debate is interesting so i thought it warrants its own thread. I haven't yet formed a view. But the way I see it there are two significant opposing reasons relating to the issue. There may be more. 1. Some could claim that free speech is being stifled were such behaviour to be banned (but remember it is Alamy's forum). And that it's useful for contributors to see what others are getting for their images - it provides comparative data. 2. But by posting low prices for images we could be damaging ourselves. Consider a buyer seeing prices that are currently much lower than they pay. Would that not be a significant lever for the buyer to attempt to get lower pricing when next negotiating their supply contract with Alamy? The danger being that it becomes a steadily decreasing spiral across Alamy's customer base. I'm mainly talking here about buyers with large usage needs. But it could also be a turnoff for any buyer. There are lots of peripheral issues involved I know - image usage, qty discounts, what other agencies are doing etc. But the potential danger is that we exacerbate the problem. As a general principle should we or should we not post on the forum, actual image pricing received?
  5. What's up with Alamy's very low overall CTR recently?
