Hello  - I've only just noticed that as of August last year I've been charged 60% commission on all sales;  material supplied is exclusive to Alamy.   Any ideas please ?

Yes, 60% is the current Alamy scrape-off for all images, exclusive or not, unless you are one of the few who gross $25K per Alamy year in which case  you will get 50% of exclusive sales fees. Unless they are sold via distributors, of course, in which case you get even less.

There was a huge thread about this when the contract changed last Summer. You should have been sent at least two emails about the contract change.

don't forget the increase in Affiliates also where Alamy charges an extra 6%.

Interesting new thread. It supports my crackpot theory that most Alamy contributors aren't even aware of the new contract and commission changes.

 

Hmmm... 🤔

 

nor how to fill caption based on another thread 😉

 

 

 

it will be even worse after July.   Remember that anyone that wasn't exclusive probably saw little impact from change, so wait until they get their first 80%+ commission charge.

I have reservations that some don’t even realise that they have a contract!!

Yes, that upcoming event should produce some interesting, lemming-like responses. 🏃‍♂️🏃‍♀️

With less than 500 images I'm going to presume you'll be paying at least 80% commission in July/Aug as per the new contract. It'll be down to how much your gross sales add up to though.
