So lets take action:
Inform there buyers.
Click Gettys Adsense advertisment away.
Start a social media shitstorm.
Flood there support with emails.

We are so many lets give them a 24/7 contributor support worldwide.

What great ideas.  Too bad nobody tried them all before, many times.  ::)

there was never a swarm that tried that. Only a few do that.
The contributor scene has no power that is the problem.
Remember the Fotolia/Dollarphotoclub action. It is possible to punish greedy Agencies.
But if you only post, crying and unmotivated you will change nothing.

Sometimes i think the contributors have lost all her creativity by producing new images.

Never is a big word for someone who has been at this for just about 3 years.  I'm guessing you weren't here for istock D day (deactivation day).  It was a big deal.  All your suggestions were tried at once by a large organized group of contributors.   Many thousands of images were deactivated and a lot of people closed their accounts altogether.   Buyers were contacted, tweets went out, bloggers wrote articles about Getty mistreatment of contributors,  the works. 

Yet here we are a few years later  Things are way worse on istock than ever.  The only good to come from it is that the people who closed their accounts  are free of the abuse.

You're welcome for the history lesson.  ;)
I do think istock has lost a lot of buyers because they were competitive with SS in the earnings poll here for non-exclusives at one time.  Would be good if they lost more and I think if that will happen over time.

Agreed.   They have lost a ton of buyers.  Some because of contributors efforts and some because they treat buyers almost as bad as contributors.  We'll never know how many we persuaded to leave but I hope it was a lot!

What if we pooled some money and requested a full audit? I bet they would cra...p their drawers.

Sign me up. This is better than petitions, unions and all the other waste of time ideas. Demand a full audit for refunds, for all, class action suit. I won't get 28 cents but I'd like to see Getty stuck for their arrogant attitude and mysterious undocumented refunds.

Fund Me


Yeah.  Me too.  Would be worth the money just to see WtheF they've been up to.  I get the idea their bookkeeping is so bad an audit might wind up putting them out of business.

So I looked at my Nov. earnings from Getty in the Portal before they turned it off. I had earnings of $1,122.00 and no red returns on that statement! I just got an email from them that said that $1020.00 are returns so now I owe them $1020.00 and they will deduct that from my future earnings. I can not go back and pull that text file to prove it so I am just shafted. These were Premium Access sales. So 98% of all my Getty PA sales are returns for the month of Nov. 2016!

How many pictures are in this refund story?

What a crap move by Getty. If I were you, I'd leave immediately, let them worry about the 'debt' you have with them, if there is any.
The way they conduct business, and even make old statistics inaccessible is a joke and highly unprofessional.

Best of luck!

I bet they wouldn't let him leave until the debt is paid off, regardless of the 30-day notice.  But my guess is that JJNEFF only takes a week to accumulate a grand so probably a moot point.
