I just started using the new system and not sure where everything is. I can see where royalties earnings are, but is there anywhere that shows the actual files that are selling?
Not yet we are promised this advanced facility towards the end of the month I believe.

Thanks. Was that mentioned in one of the emails from them or elsewhere in a forum post perhaps?
It was but to be honest they say so much I'm not going to try and find it...anyway what they say and what and when they do it are only tenuously linked.

Thanks. I agree. It is almost worth waiting to see what happens rather than acting or assuming much from announcements that are made until things actually take place.

In the meantime, you can see the files that sold in January in a more contributor-friendly way by downloading the "txt" file from the "Export" tab, going to todayis20.com, registering there and uploading the file to it... that's about the best on offer just now!


Thanks. It sounds like what you are suggesting is downloading your personal sales data file from Getty and then uploading that information to a 3rd party site? Although it may work, I probably wouldn't do that for security reasons.

The text file which you can download does contain image data which if you want to analyse you can. For me shuttterstock is by far my best earner so I try and "optimise" what sells there. I try and spent as little time as possible stressing about Istock....am close to dropping them.

Am I right that December PPs are not reported yet, as well as the subs for the last week of December?
Sorry if I'm repeating someone else questions, but I'm completely lost in these long ESP threads.

Not really a security issue, since they don't get your user account details, although if you are concerned about privacy issues it is the case that you are uploading your sales information - but the same could be said of StockPerformer.

And todayis20 has been around a while as a Getty contributor tool so not a sudden arrival or anything.  But up to you.

Some PPs and subs and maybe other is not reported yet. ESP is such a mess, we don't know. IS can't calculate the subs percentages until after the contract period is done. IS seems to think Jan. sales will be reported in March? But if the Feb 20th included January, there was nothing on mine for subs. They are holding our data and money for 2 months or longer.

$0 sales are just duplicate of same sale on report, should show above or below actual sale. Could be second download by same customer. They are not free downloads like some complain.

Jan 20th report should be the first to include the new subs program instead a mix of the old flat and new % ways. I already had some as low as .08c commission an more at .15c this is demoralizing. Credit sales have decreased. I'm not going to upload any new. If the total sales would balance the loss, I still don't want to work for these people. Just waiting to see what's real and then will decide.

Thanks. Understood. I will probably end up waiting to see what Getty offers first in the next month or two.

A contributor collecting info on other contributors' sales for an extended period of time? Why didn't I think of that?  8)

Well if they're looking to make their fortune by copying my best sellers they're going to be mightily disappointed!  ;)

And the latest Gitty iSuck ESP news is

"The next royalty statement is due to be published March 20, but is likely to be delayed by several days due to a temporary technical issue which we are working hard to resolve."

Temporary technical issue? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA  ;D

C'mon you only had like 6 months to eff this one up

If it weren't proving so disastrous for some contributors who are deeply embedded in Istock it would be comical. Some very loyal followers have lost patience. I used to work in Local Government and like all large organisations we had some IT cock ups but this one makes them look like super smooth implementations!

The really revealing thing about their (mis)management  is that they never learn from their apparently-inevitable IT screw-ups.

I just cant understand how they have fouled things up so spectacularly when even relatively small agencies seem to implement something workable seemingly with ease. They really need to sack their entire IT mgt and start again! You know it must be really bad when they actually apologise!!!

I'm really lost on all this. My last data on ESP with the faulty graphs and useless charts says Jan. 1st report. Now it's going to be March report, late, will it say February?

What data and information do we honestly have and get, or are there still parts missing from Dec 2016? This is a mess.

Sadly many  of us predicted something along these lines though they have surpassed themselves in the scale of incompetence. I'd have been more amazed if it had gone reasonably well.
