There are comments in the Alamy forum that this is a bug - an obsolete storage program that  surfaced when they made the changes for the new 20% royalty rate July 1. Several people say they reported it, but perhaps the more reports the better?

Yes, this was a bug which has now been corrected. We don't charge submission or storage fees - this is an obsolete bit of code from many many years ago.

Apologies for any confusion this caused.

I am sorry for you but then again it's so funny. You think you can earn some money with this company and then they cancel everything out. It's becoming masochistic to be with them if you ask me. Glad I left long time ago by now.

Why wasn't this "obsolete bit of code" deleted when it became obsolete, no longer in use?

What was the point to save it?

They might want to use it in the future when they run out of ways to reduce contributor earnings even further  ;)
