They say that they're 'rolling out' payments now so..... fingers crossed for a payment in bank by end of month!

Call me dumb but I still don't get it.  I've certainly had images published in books during my short Alamy career but that's about all I know about DACS.  Help?

+ do a search of the forum - plenty of info.

 

EDIT: actually ignore the forum search - it's rubbish! :unsure:  Use Google: https://www.google.com/search?q=dacs+alamy

Alamy might  have claimed it on your behalf if you haven't opted out. Check out your Accounts Balance over the next weeks.

The only things I've opted out of is personal and distributor.  Thanks.

Much like their normal invoicing process perhaps?

If you have opted out of Alamy claiming for you then you do your own claim with DACS, if not Alamy will handle it for you in return for their 50%

Plus their 'admin' fee. 

Easy to do yourself IMO and get 100%.

I opted out of Alamy claiming DACS payments for me for books magazines etc. But allowed Alamy to claim for TV usage for me as per their contract at the time.

Also TV uses are more difficult to follow/find.

Thanks for that.  I'm a bit confused as it says Alamy receives the funds in Dec and pays out in Jan.  Is it not Sept at the moment?!

 

DACS changed the process a year ago and they now have an earlier deadline which also means they pay out earlier.

That's odd, the stats are cumulative, so if you got something last year, you should get something this year, if you submitted your info on time.

Maybe they are rolling out the emails, as they say they are rolling out the payments.

Or maybe you should contact them.

Already got payment into my account. Little less than previous years, it seems that there is a smaller amount of money to be distributed or/and more artists claiming every year. Made me happy anyway.
