KWheal Posted November 23, 2015 Share Posted November 23, 2015 When IQ sales were introduced we were told that companies were given bulk discounts but because of the IQ use we would get re-use fees if the company re-used them, albeit at a lower rate. The upside for us was that it would give us a better chance of reuse fees as the image would be on thier IQ database. Today i have been doing a sweep of my zooms and sales to find any unreported images One was an IQ sale for $32.33 for magazine print and online use. I then found it re-used so I reported it to memberservices to be told that the customer had repeat use. I then replied to them stating my understanding of IQ use as detailed by alamy originally but they told me..... "Not exactly, Alamy iQ is a product giving buyers tailored pricing and licenses to suit their specific requirements. For IQ customers, we’ve increased our prices on average for these new deals by over 60%; and this reflects the fact that an image could be re-used". Hence they now have RF use !!! I guess I should be happy for the extra $20 they got me in negotiating this deal NOT (which I do not believe has been explained to us contributors since they moved the goalposts) Kevin Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
