I sold 3 images in March and April, totaling $98. It says on my contributor homepage that $27 has cleared, its now June 24th, how long does it take for all 3 sales to clear so I can get paid?

It can take up to 90 days, even longer. Impossible to predict really. I have an outstanding sale from 2009. Hopefully Alamy hasn't given up on it.

My recent experience is that payments come through quite regularly about 3 months in arrears.    I have 47 sales this year, March was an exceptional month with 19 sales, of these all have been cleared except one, a distributer sale on 10th March.   The next longest uncleared is from 25th April.  

 

All you can do is wait, but based on my experience you could expect to get cleared in July maybe paid 1st August.

March and April should be clear now. The minimum is 45 days and most sales clear on the dot. Others, not so quick. The Evening Standard is being a bit tardy at the moment- I've got two coming up to 90 days.

How long is a piece of string. If it is paid within 90 days consider yourself lucky. If it is unpaid after 6 months contact MS.

 

Good luck - 3 sales with only 100 images is a really great start - congratulations.

mchebby,

 

I agree with that!  Very well done indeed.   When I made my first sale I had 144 images, and then there were only about 3 million on Alamy.

Your images are terrific. I'm not surprised you are doing well already. Unfortunately it can take a very long time for sales to actually clear.
