Paulstw Posted October 16, 2013 Share Posted October 16, 2013 I think that if the payment threshold is becoming a problem, then maybe the portfolio isn't appealing enough to buyers. I've never heard a peep out of folk who earn a lot and have regular sales, with regards to thresholds. Why? Because they have rock solid sales potential in their libraries. I count myself into this theory too, but if we are so worried about payment thresholds and having to get them lowered, then maybe there's a deeper issue with regards to our contribution to Alamy. This Alamy system requires work. Research, investigation and an eye for an image telling a story or a great travel shot. Snapping a shot from a window because it's raining outside not only shows a sheer lack of commitment but it will show in the views/zooms and lack of sales. I use the above as an example, because I've done it myself loads of times. If there was a great amount of sales in a large number of peoples work, then we wouldn't be shouting at Alamy at all for keeping the threshold at $175. We'd all be clearing that every month. Lowering it, means that you'll never strive to earn more. You'll always be floating about in the fine line of the threshold. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
