Since I have been officially a complainer here, of no sales, I thought this would deserve a little celebration, I made my first sale last couple of days, a RF pic, landscape, and it was all worth the wait. 

 

:rolleyes:

 

Won't be complaining for a while.

Congratulations.

 

And with only 457 images.

 

I think I was at around 1500 images before my first sale.

Many congrats. As a matter of interest why did you choose RF rather than RM?

it will be if you upload quality images with solid keywords 

 

 

That's the goal, not the easy part.

shouldn't have celebrated, it was refunded. Who knows what happens next. Too good it was to be true.

Sorry to hear that. Sometimes after a refund it will be licensed again, at a different price, and sometimes for the same price, sometimes not at all. My first refund was never re-licensed (it was for $250 so I was bummed). The next time it was for $50, refunded, and then sold for $50 again, so you never know. Hope they re-license it.

Alessandra - I thought I remember seeing on one of the threads a few days ago a message for you from Alamy saying that the sale had gone through?  

 

 

Edit:  Found it.  On the refunds thread.  Looks like good news :)

 

'Hello Alessandra,

 

Please check your sales report again as posting this in this way is quite misleading. Your image was sold twice and refunded once in order to rectify the customer error.

 

This is one of the disadvantages of use reporting 'live', as sometimes customer errors can cause confusion. If you set your sales history to "All" you will see the two sales. 

 

Congrats on your first sale, lets hope it's the first of many.

 

Cheers,

 

Alamy'

It would have been a hard blow to have your first sale refunded, glad to hear that's not the case.

 

On the odd occasion that I make a big sale (very odd actually) I don't relax until I see that the payment has cleared. Refunds don't happen all that often, but it's painful when they do.

Great that my image sold twice but on my sales report it says Total sales $0.00. 

 

May be I don't know how to read a sales report.  :huh:

I clearly don't know how to read sales reports. Alamy has correctly noted to me that I have made a mistake  reading  mine, and I apologize for the confusion. I am happy to see that Alamy is attentive to the forum and has straightened this out. I wish, however, I could give an advice about how to read a sales report, it is a little confusing. 

 

Going to be away for a number of days so I won't be reading sales reports or this forum, will be unable to reply to comments. Crater Lake there is.
