I wonder if things have slowed down in the invoicing department due to the sale to PA Media. There might be some kind of transition going on.

 

I’ve wondered the same thing. I’m looking for an excuse. After all, it couldn’t be my images, could it? 😎

Having a good month on a few of the other sites but I'm dead over here. Two small sales and one teeny tiny .15 cent sale today. I didn't even know that was possible.

I hit the cliff's edge this week, no sales since last Saturday.

 

Nothing since the 11th for me.  At least there's a nice view from the edge of the cliff. 😵

Did you have a .15 cent sale on Alamy? I didn't think this was possible with them either. Is it actually possible, then? If so, I would have to sell 700 pictures at that price just to repay the vintage Minolta lens I've bought on Ebay for 100 bucks yesterday...

Yep... Started off at .50 cents, minus the .35 deduction - a big .15 cents to me.

That is below microstock levels. My ms experiment is averaging $1.10 net for Feb

A bit like my pet ant 😪

Was that tiny white thing with angel wings hovering and reading this thread over my shoulder on my iPad your ant?

I’m thinking he loves the attention.

Absolutely diabolical month. Not a sausage. It just gets worse here, sales lower than micro stock. Sadly now going through a lot of exclusive images here to sell elsewhere as no point in putting all the eggs in one basket if the basket is broken.

To be clear and avoid confusion - this sale was via a Korean distributor for a very limited use - internal use only for Data AI algorithm training. Images taken from the novel use pool only.

Novel Use specification wasn't listed, but the sales details were presented in this way:

I still don't understand why Novel use has to undercut microstock prices.

Interesting. I imagine the customer bought 1,000s of images if they were dong AI training, so they may have been in a good position to negotiate. However, what may be crucial for AI training is accurate keywords, or they risk ending up with some strange results :unsure:

Doesn't $0.15 = 15 cents?

There is no point being in the NU scheme then complaining about the prices.

 

 

correct, and this is why i asked if it was indicated in the Sales term, as per above it actually wasn't made clear since this was a RF sales, so i would understand the photographer asking. 

 

this was worse case, NU and distributor.

It sounds as if the robots really are coming to get us. Opting out of AI might become increasingly difficult, though. 

 

Glad I left NU a number of years ago...
