Big sales usually Distributor Sales - Why?

Recommended Posts

Why is it that most times that I get a 'big' sale it's via a distributor?  Always a downer when you see a 'big' sale and then see in the sales report it's a distributor sale with big minuses as commisions.  Most of my Alamy direct sales are for smaller amounts.  😕 .  Any ideas why this is?

never had a distributor sale anywhere near the BIG area. You sure your experience isn't against the run of play

I have found the opposite to be the case for me.

Looks like you are unique, John. I’d like to see a big sale anyway I can get it, just for the excitement! I do understand the letdown, though. ☹️

My experience has been the opposite as well. So much so I pulled out of distribution and have gone Alamy only (plus Japan in distribution because of language) on the thought that if they wanted the image enough they would have to go to Alamy themselves - so far this is has not been the case though they simply don't buy (or have not yet).. hoping for a change ;+)

I find that there often isn't a lot of price difference between distributor and direct sales these days. However, the majority of my $$$ sales (including one for $200 this month) are direct ones. It seems that "big sale" might mean different things to different contributors, though.
