While Alamy was always a low earner for me with less than 5% of my stock sales last year, I have already exceeded my total of 2017 in 2018 with quite a few nice over 100 USD licence, all sold as RF. Happy.

A nice $40 sale to a Canadian magazine popped into today.  Takes my total sales to 7!

Two reasonable licenses today boosted a slowish April.  Both previously zoomed back in February.

After a mini drought, it was nice to have four sales drop in today and one of those being a $250 book use!

That's encourging to hear. I've had a few good sales this month too. Hope it's a trend.

Highly unusual but welcome. A Saturday and Sunday sale reported over the weekend. :)

Beaten my record ever of gross sales today. 

2 sales short of BME but one more day to go. I don't think I'll beat or equal that record somehow but you never know. Happy.

Great shot. First of many sales to come, I'm sure. Quality, knowledge, niche.

Wow, I feel like I just time traveled back to the year, 2011!  Four sales popped in today and three of the four were $100+ and one of those was for a $400 book use!  Thanks Alamy!

Thanks Gen.

 

I've been averaging 14 sales a month over the last 12 months, so 7 in 1 day is great!

 

If i don't sell anything I upload more - and if I do sell anything I upload more!!!

$225 for a US magazine cover, which is nice - but 38.5% to Alamy and 23% affiliate commission (whatever that is) makes a big hole in it. Still, positive news, I guess
