Although a January sale cleared yesterday, it was not quite enough to take me over the $50 payout threshold for the month. But it had a $19.99 PU at the beginning of the month, and surely that should have cleared. But no, it seems that, in addition to card & Paypal options, Alamy offer to bill even Guest PU buyers.

 

How does that work? Years ago businesses would trust known customers to pay on invoice (in fact there are stories of shopkeepers turning up on the death of a former customer to collect a lifetime of unpaid bills) but surely a personal use sales should only be paid for by credit card prior to download and therefore automatically clear.

Alamy will not clear payment for 45 days, even if paid immediately.  This would make sense if they were protecting themselves from refunds, but since refunds end up being charged back to contributor  the 45 day i likely a cash flow management.
