Distributor commission- deduction now 76%- did I miss something?


Question

This was a nasty shock. We now get 24% of a distro sale instead of 30%. Where did that chiselling piece of greed come from? Is it just me or did anyone else miss the (not so) fine print?

24% is not even guaranteed.   

 

Alamy takes 60% after distributors commission with NO contractual restriction on amount of the distribution component.   

 

but if distributor take 40%  it means Alamy takes 60% of 60% = 36%  which would leave contributor with 24%.  but it could be lower

I did miss it.

Just noticed this is actually correct- they now take 60% after the distro's commission, instead of 30% of the gross, which nicely adds up to another 6%. Just a sneaky extra words; "after deduction of Distributor fee or commission" in the new commission table, which is deceptively placed below the old one on the contract page.

And again the contract would allow them to have arrangements with a commission to the distributor higher the 40% leaving us even less.

the one new pieceof information it's that they are showing us the commission explicitly. the way the contract was now written i was expecting us the only see the $ after distro fee.

Shocked? Imagine one day you have the following:

Sale 0.10 Deduction 0.08  Due 0.02

They are trying to charge me money. What is going on? How do I get all my photos down?!

Probably a mistake. Wait a day or two and see if it’s corrected by Alamy. If you want to close your account, write Alamy.

Chuck's post, that I just responded to, has disappeared. A $ storage for each image? 

if it's the same i saw,  it is still there.   someone gave it an "right answer arrow" on the left side, which bumps it to top of thread
