I had one yesterday - 18 sales in one day.  Mostly newspaper and ed web <$10 apart from one $$$ right at the end of the day.

My UKNS reports came in yesterday. That's about the only 'surge' I get now, with all other licences spread over the month.

Don't despair, Alex.  I was quite depressed as well, until I've had six sales this week. I guess (hope?) that there are many January sales that will not be reported before late Feb/early March.

Surge? No moribund more like it.

 

I'll not make payout either for the first time in years and two pathetic sales  netting $5.51

 

And March will be the two year anniversary for an uncleared distributor sale from March 2018 😑

Welcome and needed mini-surge of three images on Monday and Tuesday, but nothing since...

Surge of 5 sales notified today. A few more would have been nice.

No surge for me, but at least one cleared sales to push me over payout level again this month.

I've had 10 sales over the last 3 days, more than doubling my revenues for the month.

 

One $$$, one decent $$, and eight $ sales. 

 

My gross revenue total is now almost average, but still remains $200 lower than December and January.

 

Zooms also picked up somewhat with CTR now at 0.6 compared to 0.2 earlier in the month.

For the 3rd month in a row....Nada. Alamy now firmly at the bottom of the table compared with the other Agencies I submit to. Time to decide whether I should continue to waste my time and upload here to be quite honest.

Don't despair. I have a similar sized portfolio, and some similar subjects and I have had blank periods too, usually trickling along at one or if I'm lucky two sales a month.

 

But so far this month 4 sales and $$$. There is light at the end of the tunnel, although my eyes are pretty accustomed to the dark.

Surge ? wouldn’t know about that myself. Looks like a whole blank month. This surge theory is most overrated, especially when all other sites have sales throughout the month.

Not really a theory. The sales from the last three days have doubled my sales for February (though mostly modest sums)...

Another decent $$ sale. That makes it 11 in 3 days.

A small surge of 2 today but decent prices (two of my repeat sellers), so this will bring my month close average!

I have a surge of some really weird sales. Two came in this morning, same photo, one at $0, one at -$11. I have seen -$ price, indicating a refund. This particular photo has been sold before multiple times, but never at the price of $11. Besides, that $0 sale, what the heck?

I have just had exactly the same.  The image sold at the start of Feb for $15.  This doesn't make any sense and I've never seen anything like it in all my years at Alamy and I have had many refunds.

Definite surge for me. A sale on each of the last three days - one being a $$$. This month is the best in some considerable time. Only downside being that I have my images in other places so only get 40% of the take. But I'm in the process of changing that. ;)

Glad I am not hallucinating. Yes, the same photo was sold on Feb 9 for $15.
