Weekend sales can happen. I'm still waiting for one Live News newspaper use that I'm aware of, so I'll keep checking (every few minutes!)

 

The Live News use reports appear to have no consistent pattern. Some get reported within 4-6 weeks. Others take 4-5 months, with no relevance to the date they were used. It appears that The Sun and The Times have done all their reporting for now, so I am not expecting any more despite the fact that I have loads outstanding from months ago.

Went to bed last night with 3 sales for the month.  This morning that's shot up to 10!  Now I know that's absolutely pathetic to the big guys who get a ton more sales every month, but for little old me, that number is fab!  Go me!

Great stuff! It is so exciting seeing what comes in. I wonder if the big boys and girls still get that feeling 😀

Thanks.  I'm sure it's like water off a duck's back to the big guys, but I, and I guess a lot of others, get a massive thrill when any sales come in.

Pleased to have reached a milestone with 101 sales since joining Alamy around 18 months ago, with gross value around $4300, and $4000 of that just this year. It certainly pays to be patient as a newbie.

Thought I'd made a mistake at first but I've just had 11 zooms reported for yesterday. I don't think I've ever had more than 4 or 5 for a single day.

I had 7, but I suspect we're in competition!

Absolutely!  It’ll be interesting to see where they turn up, they were definitely thorough!  Maybe it’s a book and they’ll use them all 😂

Only been on Alamy for 8 months, just gone past 1500 images uploaded and had 7 sales so far. Don't know if they are good figures but i'm still enjoying photography so what's not to like.:)

Well done mate, that's good going.  I only made 5 sales in my first year so you're ahead of me!  If you're around today call in for a coffee - we need a catch up.

Two sales just came in from those zooms and I only uploaded them about three weeks ago in September. For better than newspaper prices too :)

A sale here too: from Glasgow, but not one which was zoomed yesterday. Netted me >50% of September's total, though!

I had two yesterday, too, for good prices. Must have been the day for us North of the border.

Another sale popped in overnight, this time one of my 'lone zooms' from that Glasgow batch. Different buyer, as suspected.

However, now almost at my September total, and only the 5th.

Onwards and upwards!

A nice sale of $188 popped in this evening making October a very pleasant change from the small beer I've been getting lately and like you say, it's only the 6th. :)

That moment when you check and see two new sales, smile when you see nice prices, then realise there's a little minus next to it. My two Glasgow sales were both refunded. :(
