 3 sales. 2 for $0 and 1 for $3 gross. Absolutely c**p. Next they will be asking me to pay them for giving my images away. What an insult. Now I will put on my tin hat and wait for the usual Alamy apologists.

14 sales for $160 gross.

1 for $125 which I'm stoked about, the fees for the rest not so great. Terrible actually, most sub $5. CTR good for me at 0.81

With increasing number of sales with low fee amounts, is it time for Alamy to allow contributors to set there own minimum fees??

(Technically it would be an easy fix)

9 sales, $138 gross, $55 net.

At $15.33 gross average, still vastly underperforming vis a vis the alleged average $30 gross sales.

Lowest: $1.43 gross.

Highest, $97 gross was for a use where they asked me to release editorial restrictions. I decided the particular risk was low, so agreed provided the buyer agreed to take responsibility and he agreed.

Later in the month I got another request, this time for a calendar* use. I felt the risk was miniscule, but said I'd agree if the client or Alamy would take responsibility. Both declined, so I guess the risk was somehow greater than I'd thought. No problem, I don't need to spend the year worrying!

*Interestingly, a few years back, I had a calendar use of a famous piece of public art with an extant artist, when you couldn't tick 'editorial use only' for RM files and I just had needs release, no release for property. I was worried then, but for all I know, the calendar company might have already cleared it with the artist. I'd imagine you could make a calendar solely with different images of that work, close up, small in its environment, elevated, daytime, nighttime ...

I’ll take your “mediocre” all day long.

6227 views.  35 zooms.  Average CTR  0.56.

18 sales for a gross total of $243.32.  Highest $52.00.  Lowest $0.77.  Average $13.51.

This monthly average price is by far the lowest ever in my sixteen years with Alamy. I hope that things will only get better.

Average number of sales with 21 but lower than average prices, a gross of $468.  No sales over $$$.  But started of March with a $200 sale this morning!

 

Average price (gross) $22

Not a good month but results only reflect up to 24th Feb. No data since then. 4 sales for $59 gross.

 

Outstanding data looks to be updated as of today the 2nd March, 2022. To complete the month of February the sales figures above are unchanged but views are up 23% and zooms went up by a wonderful 84%. I hope a few of these translate into sales.

Jim.
