The Guardian has already had the image on its website for this month . My account showed this image as zoomed in March .

But my account has yet to show it as sale .

 

I had two queries which I would be glad to get an answer for 

1. What is the average time you have experienced between an actual sale and the time it shows on your account .

2. Is it possible a sale was effected and the details were never updated on the contributors account ?

 

Thanks a lot for the answers, in advance.

 

Cheers,

Ca be up to 4 months for some newspapers to report a sale, :angry:

Unfortunately, Rakesh, it is a bit of a lottery and they get away with murder.

 

3 -4 months is around the average, but I've had newspaper sales take up to 8 months to come to fruition. My latest one took two months to be reported, back in January and it has still not cleared.

The Guardian is one of the better ones, 6-8 weeks usually.

Then 6 weeks to clear of course.

I tend to advise MS of newspaper sales to save time. The Guardian seem to be better than some but I have had some which needed chasing so I pre-empt the process now to save time.

Rakesh - My most recent sale took over 6 months and some considerable chasing before it went on my account!

I had some Newspaper sales (my first ones) at the beginning of April. The Times and Daily Telegraph sales were reported within a month.Sales to 4 other papers haven't shown up yet, but it sounds like I am doing well to have received what I have!
