Alamy Distribution Commission 30% 
Distributor Commission 40%

So for me its 30 % ?

2. Good percentage and a non-exclusive contract:  We offer you a better deal than most other agencies, we split sales down the middle; 50/50

I am confused

Look deeper into your contract and you will see that this was a partner distribution.

As stockwife and your post say, that's a distributor commission.
You can opt out of these if you choose.

You get 50% of the 60% when the distributor takes their 40%. I suppose that's not clear by what happens is a distributor gets 40% of a sale. That leaves 60% which Alamy divided equally with you. That's 50/50 on the Alamy side of the transaction. No all sales are not 50/50 because when someone else gets a cut, we only get 50% of what's left.

They have, by far, the worst user interface for presenting data to contributor, but if you click the Account Balance button (from the dashboard) you can see detail on each sale - gross amount and Alamy's commission. Assuming you're on a 50% royalty rate, their commission and your payment are the same dollar amount.

I have complained to Alamy about this before, and they say they're being "transparent".

I suppose they are more honest than some sites, in that they let us know how much they are charging customers, but it's confusing.

On the account balance page pick a date range where you actually had sales, then a list appears with all the details.
Pre-selected time period is one month, so if you had no sales in the last month, you will see nothing.
It's confusing...

The details are there, but I don't see where it tells us whether we got 50% or whether it was a distributor sale (30%) or an associate sale (38.5%). (Some people have mentioned they had associate sales, but that might have beebn (?) before the recent interface change)

My dashboard, download sales report, select date of invoice.    RM   58.57   -29.28   29.29

If that's 50% of the total or minus the 30% I don't know. I'd need to have a sale of that kind to see? But all I see is 50% of something.

Thanks, now I see all the details when I look at account balance not sales. http://www.alamy.com/alamycontributorreports/Reports.aspx?Rep=1

For me it's all there, in the "detail" column...
For each sale two lines in the table, one with "sale" in the description and the detail column, the next with "alamy commission" in the description and "50%" in the detail.
For distributor sales three lines, an additional one detailing the distributor commission.

You are looking in the Account Balance section? For every sale there are either two or three entries. For distributor sales (I had to go back a while to get one of those as I opted out of distributor sales a few years back) there are three entries. Two of the columns are:

Sale                     Sale   
Alamy Distribution Commission      30%   
Distributor Commission         40% Distributor Commission

So you know that your portion is 30% by virtue of the other two percentages - it's so daft that they make you do the math on your take, but the information is all there to know exactly who got what
