It happened.  I've had low sales but this is a record.  It's even RM.  Hopefully not a sign of things to come.  I've got enough of these at that other place:

 

Country: Worldwide ; Usage: Editorial ;  Media: Editorial website ;  Start: 17-February-2021 ; End: 17-November-2021 ;

   Additional Details: Single use across website and/or digital publication such as E-book or PDF, any size, any placement, in perpetuity.

 

How much you ask?  $0.25 and $0.10 to me.

Wow.  Another identical $0.10 RM sale just popped in for another image.  Now I'm starting to feel picked on.

Are they both similar subject matter?

Yes.  Shots from Puerto Vallarta.

Probably a travel website then. Any luck tracking them down?

I've never had much luck tracking my images and for a dime each I won't be bothered.

Don't blame you. It would be interesting to know who the culprit is, though. At least you had a nice trip to sunny PV. 🏖️

Quite likely part of a slide show embedded in a webpage travel report. Nobody is paying to visit that website, everybody wants to see pictures. 

 

There are plenty of competitors offering the same sort of images at very low fees. It is not hard to imagine that client contacting Alamy saying that they are ready to buy but want the same prices as they are paying elsewhere. Unfortunately it is where we are.

I'm a little confused as to why you have received two red arrows for this. Someone wanting to shoot the messenger?

I was looking for an angry emoji, could't find one so clicked the sad one... the red might have been a sign of anger at the situation, not the poster.

I was thinking the same, but optimistically assumed the red arrows were in support of my negative experience.

You mean like a "new earning opportunity"?  Right.  Let's hope we get spared that.

You're probably right - I hope so. My glass is always half empty - but at least that means that I never run out of wine (I know that it's going to be half empty, so I always have a spare bottle)! 😉😂

Interesting. If Alamy accept thats the value in certain situations you can correctly or incorrectly assume that their value assessment is based on quantities. Could it become a new regular thing?

Hi All

 

This is a license via our novel use scheme, an optional scheme which falls outside of our normal licensing.

 

The images in the novel use pool give our sales team the freedom to explore different schemes and trials, with a variety of price points and licenses. These include, but are not limited to trials with new customers, prototypes/proof of concept, and high volume low unit price licences.

 

If you decide you don’t want to be part of the Novel Use Scheme anymore you can opt out every April by following the ‘Novel use’ link under Additional Revenue Options on your contributor dashboard.

 

Thanks,

Alamy
