Note, I wrote the same thing yesterday and got a snarky remark about being four days late and called a *? Wow!

Here's something useful. It shows your sales and files and sorts things very nicely. There are times when the site is slow and you must reload, it's very popular. But someone made a site that does what IS should have done for us.

a) They don't care  b) They are incompetent c) they don't like to make it too obvious how much they are creaming off or a combination of all the above.

I think we can agree there and this one too.

a) They don't care  b) They are incompetent c) they don't like to make it too obvious how much they are creaming off or a combination of all the above.

Getty was in a big hurry to get things moved to their servers. Been said before, this is accounting and files, that's why the formats changed, to match Getty. ESP was activated while it was barely functional, with promises. We get a little nibble every month and more promises.

Consolidation of service, cut expenses, cut employees. Remember most of the contract mods on the forum got the axe. If people in the company end got the axe, I missed it, but I bet the last of the Canadian people got moved out. Transfer or told to go find another job.

Yeah its rather funny actually but wherever Getty goes they create nothing but troubles. Never used to be like that. Back in the 90s after buying up Image-Bank and Stones, the two industry leaders at that time they were brilliant and everything went nice and smooth no problems at all and everyone was earning good money. However they became too big for their shoes and ever since 2006 its just been a downhill race. Sad really but true!

Hey Derek,
you can use our app to track iStock/Getty sales. It automatically downloads the reports and shows you every sale since the transition to ESP(december 2016).

We're still in Beta so it's free to use. If you're curious you can download it here: http://microstockr.com/microstockr-pro

Unfortunately, as it's been mentioned before you have to wait for the 20th of the current month to see the sales for the previous one. Also, sales made before December 2016 are now gone from their site.

Why are you in bad mood if you get so many sales?

That''s the problem, it just tells you you have $0. If you don't make payout each month then yes, but anyone who does this for a living it's not much use (for iStock) as you should always be over payout.... otherwise a career change may be needed ;-)

First remark :  I know it is not easy but you do not include "in the news" sales on DT in the calculation of revenu per stock.

I just tried Deep Meta 3 for the first time to analyze the monthly sales data. Forget my previous post suggesting to use TodayIs20. Deep Meta is far superior in terms of data analysis and it puts it all into one screen. You don't even have to download the data files yourself or sacrifice your privacy by uploading your sales data files to a privately owned 3rd party website. Deep Meta does it all for you and only downloads your sales data onto your own computer.

Also, if you still have Deep Meta 2 installed, it can import all your old data from Deep Meta 2 from all the years before iStock switched over to the new Getty system which was switched over on January 1st of this year. So now you can have both all of your old and new file data together in one app. It only provides sales statistics though from January of this year onward.

Yes, I've been impressed with Deep Meta 3.... shame iStock still use that crazy keyword system but that's no fault of the Deep Meta 3 programmer!

choose 'upload' and tick the 'Import DeepMeta2 Portfolio and Data' box.
(Upload is unintuitively what you have to click before you can 'synchronise' your data to bring in the most recent stats, even if you have no intention of uploading)

But V2 - unlike V3 - does not contain Subscription and Partner Program sales does it ? So any importing of data will be incomplete by definition - or am I missing something here ?

The easiest way is to click on the gear icon in the upper right hand corner of Deep Meta 3 program. Then go to Preferences > Advanced > and at the bottom you will see an option for DeepMeta v2 Data Import.

I believe all you get from the v2 Data Import is whatever data is currently contained in the v2 program that is already on your computer. So I think it is just pulling old data across and consolidating it in v3. I don't think v3 has the ability to pull any of the old data from the iStock servers anymore.

I think v2 only provided data for total all time royalty earned on each file and an average royalty per month for each file. I think within those figure though it probably contains Subscription and Partner Program sales from prior to Jan 2017.

On the ESP site, if you go to Royalties > Export, there is an option at the bottom to download a data file containing all your sales from February 2015 through December 2016 as a text file, but it is simply a total for your monthly earnings for each of the months during that period. I think that is your only ability at this point to retrieve any data at all from Getty for any of your historical sales prior to Jan 2017.

DMv2 did not count subs sales, and I'm pretty sure it didn't count PP sales or PA sales (fka Getty 360 and Getty Plus), only credits.

Thank you. I believe you are correct.
