Alamy's payment system is outlined here in contributor FAQ. Some payments may take longer, or in a very few cases never happen, because the customer fails to pay their bills. For the most part you will see your sale clear after about six weeks and payment to you will occur at the end of the month if your cleared balance exceeds $50.

This is the answer I got from Alamy when I was asking about image use not reported after 3 months:

 

"Distributors report their uses over a period of time and can take up to 4 months. If you therefore don’t see this in your sales history 4 months after the use date then pop us another email and we can chase it."

 

It'll be 4 months tomorrow, still not reported. 🙂

Perhaps it will be reported tomorrow!

No help on that, but I have just mentioned an uncleared October sale to CR, and got a quick reply saying they're still on the case chasing payments. So maybe give them a couple more months.

Thanks for your help. As someone who has a regular job I don't understand why Alamy "sells" something but the funds aren't collected right away. Or at all. 

You may get paid at the end of the month, but that doesn't mean your employer does. Welcome to business.

Account customer can pay in 4-6 weeks, many take longer. Some go bust so you and Alamy never get paid. It's a fact of life

standard practice for regular customers.  and it standard practice to extend deadline to meet your cash flow 

 

would you want your house builder to charge you daily for what he has provided?
