To all Panthermedia-contributors: PM pulls a portion of the revenue back. Apparently there were problems with a sale partner. Check your sales summary for 2015 and 2016!  :-\

Make me think of a song sung by Andrea Bocelli & Sarah Brightman - Time to Say Goodbye

I cancelled my account with them yesterday (because of this), they replied promptly (within 24 hours).

Be aware that the removal of your photos from Partner sites will take up to six months.

I exchanged few emails with them. It literally pisses me off. Is definitely not about $10 I lost but about business ethics and the fact they needed a year to fix it (I had 2 sales from 2015).
For me it's like saying to one of my clients - ah, my hourly rate is $10 more now and send them invoice for something I did year ago.

The dice was cast for me some month ago. But my account is still open and I can't wait, that it will cancelled finally. Hope they pay me my revenues. I see the risk that I have to send money to them afterwards.

What is the way to cancel the account?
How did you do that?

I just replied to the e-mail they sent me regarding the "adjustments" and asked for termination and removal of my photos from PM and all Partner sites. They answered - in the affirmative - within 24 hours.

I'm not with PM but I wonder if this is stated in their terms when you sign up.  I ask because if that is indeed the case, PM should provide you with a list of their partner sites so you can personally verify the images are removed. Otherwise, how would you ever know if your images were removed?

I had a case a couple of years ago where I closed an account and someone sent me a link months later of a site that was selling my underwater work.  After I inquired, sure enough it was a partner site to the one I closed months earlier.  After I contacted them, they said sorry, we will remove them promptly and they did. But the point is they kept selling. Wouldn't an API set up deactivate images instantly on partner sites? I assume each partner site has their own terms, too, which complicates the whole area of image management.

I signed up with them in 2008, I think, and I don't think there were any Partner sites at that time. Technically you're right of course, but at the rate they are selling my photos on their own as well as on the Partner sites they are welcome to have them... I didn't just say that out loud, did I?  ;D
