Nope, much lower amounts on my spreadsheets too.

$ 0.00077 is probably less than half of the cost of a click with your mouse

Look at the upside... you just need one sale a week and you'll have $1 in 25 years. Get that up to 300 sales a week and you'll be raking in $1 every month. And you only need 52,000 sales a day to get minimum wage in the US! Result.

Presumably these are the Getty Connect program, where the files aren't actually downloaded. I don't pretend to understand it, but this thread was from the launch:

On one of my latest sales reports, I received $0.00 for one of my images. What's up with that? Is IStock giving away some of our content for free?

No, it's been explained over on the forums, which have all been rearranged in the past 24 hours, so good luck on finding it there, and on an email we received months back*.
You should find another sale for the same file, which is the real sale.
(Actually, I think it was discussed on msg a while back, *probably late Feb/early March after the first of the new  sales reports in which many of us had these $0.00 reports).

You are very diligent.  To be honest I'm still with Istock just but I really cant bear to go through the sales reports depressing and a waste of time. I'm mercenary so if I get a few $$$ I will carry on.

I'm not uploading but I try to keep up with some info, not always succeeding.
The new forum arrangement makes it even FAR more difficult to find info than before. It's obviously deliberate, their mushroom management gets ever more engrained.

Ok, there are sales where you get very low amount of $ for sub. sales, but there are also sales, where you get high amount of $ for sub sale. So on average, RPD is similar to that at SS or FT, at least for me.

We are all here to make money.

If we don't like what a company pays us we simply close down our portfolio to them.  Bottom line- it is 'our' choice if we want to do business with any company.

It's hard to process  $0.00077  being described as "some money".   

There is probably that much "money" in my lungs right now, in the form of atoms of gold drifting in the atmosphere.

Let's get real.  This is zero.

Great post. People in this business having an argument over this makes you wonder though.

It would do everyone good to remember that famous admonition posted a few years ago in the IS forum: "Money isn't what's going to make you happy."  They're just trying to uphold their standards. Give 'em a break.

"Money isn't what's going to make you happy."

But having no money at all is pretty much guaranteed to make you unhappy to a certain extent! Unless you lead a completely self-sustained lifestyle... then it would be ok. Own your own home, grow your own food, solar power etc.

You probably weren't around when this iconic statement was made by an Stock executive when they FKDUS on royalty cuts.  It is a sarcastic post.
