UK distributor commission.

Recommended Posts

I've just had a sale pop up for a national UK newspaper. Not a great price but worth having, even with the flat rate per image quantity discount. What killed it though was paying a distribution commission. I don't think I have seen this before. Have you? Paying distribution commission for a sale in the UK?

Hi Geoff. This is the detail of location given in sales -

Country: United Kingdom
Usage: Editorial
Media: Newspaper - national

Alamy distribution commission   30% 
Distributor Commission                40%.

Am I missing something here?

Worth asking Alamy for explanation. Could it be one of Alamys distributors sold it to a UK newspaper? Is this allowed? may be slipped through net as so much is computerised

Under Distributors Alamy does list the UK.

I thought I'd opted out but apparently I overlooked it. That's one to  keep in mind during the opt-out period next April.

I really cant recall... just that there were a few raised eyebrows. I think they were RF only.

Just in case anyone was wondering this sale turned out to be a billing error, now corrected. The sale was to Germany not UK.

You can opt out of distributions sales should you wish to do so.

 

Whether you would still get the sale because a buyer would widen their search to take in Alamy, or whether they would satisfice with a file available from their usual supplier is impossible for us to know.
