Do you use the Getty Contributor App?  If so, I have a question for you.

When you go to the "My Photos" section, under "Stats", there is a count of "Views".  Underneath they show the actual photos "viewed".  However, it kind of seems like those "views" are actually purchases.

Is the count of "Views" truly just views or are they purchases...  or a combination of views and purchases?

It's just the views (white left number). The purchases also appear with a different number and color (green, right). Views are refreshed everyday but purchases monthly on 20th day.

Thank you.  Since I'm still fairly new and the delay they have in notifying you of purchases makes it a little challenging. 

For example, I just started uploading in November, 2018.  In that month I had 1 view.  Just last week the November sales numbers came out and that 1 view = 1 sale.  Since December, 2018 numbers aren't out yet, I'm not sure how many of my views are sales. 

Again, just trying to get an idea of what's selling.

You can use this trick. In ESP website (esp.gettyimages.com) go to my performance -> royalties and then "profile". You can see there your downloads year to date. Those are refreshed every hour or so, I guess. Since this new year just started those are your sales until this day from January 1st. I think you will have to wait until Jan 20th to see your December sales. Also, I have had sales without views and it's quite common. It's super weird lol, the app says for example 1 sale, 0 views. But normally my ratio is 1:4 sales:views (1 sale every 4 views). You can also see your portfolio page, your most likely sold pictures appear first when you select "best match" organization... (over your recent accepted pictures).
