KWheal Posted April 29, 2016 Share Posted April 29, 2016 The way i understood these sales when first introduced was that it would involve getting repeat sales from the same companies. It was explained that say a company downloads a photo under IQ agreement and its used for a presentation its held on their IQ "database" . Then someone from accounts wants to use it as they see it on their "database". The click on it for further use and it registers as a sale for us but at a lesser price . That sounded fine at the time but I am seeing more and more IQ licences with multiple use in the licence so the above original idea of the scheme goes out of the window. I may not be bang on with how the further uses registered for that next sale but you get the general idea. I am assuming that IQ customers got discounts for using this scheme but now they are multiple uses over say 5 years its just become another discount scheme for buyers with no benefit to the photographer (which was the original idea when explained to us by alamy for repeat sales) What do you think and have I read the situation correctly. If so its another drive down in our income ALAMY, I stand to be corrected if you wish to comment but I think I have got it right Kevin Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
