Homy Posted April 18, 2017 Share Posted April 18, 2017 I've been with Alamy since 2015 and sold only 4 images. The last two were sold recently by a third party agency and one of the major ones here in Sweden to a magazine. The sales info says Country: SwedenUsage: EditorialMedia: Magazine - print, digital and electronicPrint run: up to 10,000Placement: InsideImage Size: 2 page spreadStart: 01 March 2017End: 01 March 2022Duration: 1 month Alamys's price for such a usage is £ 150. The images have been sold for $ 21. I get $ 6. I understand the deal but I find it very strange that the third party agency is allowed to set its own prices and give away my images to such a low price compared to Alamy’s prices. To get $ 6 for two images in a magazine that can be sold for 5 years feels like being cheated. This is the answer I got from Alamy: "This sale was made through one of our Distributors and they’ll charge what they think to be a competitive price in their market. It’s in everyone’s interest to get the highest price for each sale as the money is split three ways, but sometimes these prices look small when compared with similar licenses in the UK & US. Remember these are customers we wouldn’t normally reach as it’s a sale through our Distribution scheme and an “Additional Revenue Option”."
