Its Thanksgiving Day here in Canada today

So I guess I should be thankful for a 4 digit sale that just showed up today

 

Never dreamed of ever getting one that high, but I have to temper my joy until it gets cleared and becomes a "for real" sale

 

I still kinda dont beleive it - I'm waiting for someone to tell me I've been 'punked'

Congratulations! Happened to me only once in 8 years here, but a great feeling when it occurred. Mine didn't bounce (yet), hopefully you will also get the cash. Confess I spent mine before the sale cleared, and then continued to worry until it did...

Woke up to a lovely $160 sale this morning! My biggest sale yet, so is a bit of a boost after a very slow and low September and start of October... Fingers crossed it clears!

Last month was our best sales month ever. We blogged about it:

Cheers for your continued support.

I wish I can say the same  <_<

 

Is that the total number of licenses, or total revenue?

Revenue, which for the whole of 2016 is 25% up on year to date 2015.

Now we are into October sales I am on my best year for numbers and the best gross revenue since 2008

Was nice to see a $120 sale a few days ago. The same image with the same license was purchased again 2 days later, but I suspected it was an error and sure enough, it was refunded the same day. That's ok though as it's still nice to see the one sale for that amount, as my sales don't often go that high for one sale. It is my first sale for October unfortunately but I hope to see some more soon. I'm certainly owed many by distributors for several months now. My revenue for the year is certainly up by quite a bit, and my sales number for the year is already well over double the number last year.

 

It's encouraging and very positive to hear from admin that revenue is up on last year. We all know that prices are lower, but if that is being more than offset by sales quantity, it's very positive and maybe the future for stock is not as dull as some have suggested.

Yes, very heartening to hear.

My stats reflect that, happily - Last month, September, was my best month ever for net revenue (& # of sales).

 

All the best - Ann

I am certainly having the best year ever -- including a $1,000 sale recently that I hope will stay as it is. Thank you, Alamy.

Looks certain that 2016 will be my best year for sales numbers, and despite 2015 having two large sales (one over $1100 dollars), I'll be very surprised if this year isn't better financially too.

So, lots of little ones can more than equal a few big ones...

2 sales yesterday (1 for $86.04 - highest since March) made my total for the year 100, that's my highest ever total beating last years 98 sales.

I feel I've just got to join in with all this good positive news. It's only October and this is my record year for licences and I've also just exceeded my previous best year for revenue which was in 2009!

I don't fiddle around too much with statistics but my surge in sales this year coincided with a twelve page leap upwards in CTR ranking and it's taken 46% more licences to surpass my previous revenue best. All interesting stuff!! :)  :)

This year continues very well for me. Two sales appeared today -- a small one through a Russian distributor and a very nice $185 for a book.

Just another example of wasteful government spending of tax payers money! -_-  Of course, it'll be all fine and good if it's my picture. Congratulations!

Yes, congratulations. I'm all for wasteful government spending myself.

 

I had a $100+ sale show up today, which is always a cause for celebration these days. Sorry, the drinks won't be on me.

Seems quite reasonable to me. People already get screwed enough by their governments, if governments won't pay a fair price for work who else should?

For sure, and better to spend the money on us rather than on big pay raises for politicians.

Had my first two sales, two months in a row, and now I've gone a month without even a zoom. :-( I know I know... not enough images yet. I was lucky to get a sale two months in a row!! :-)
