Hi All,

 

We're very sorry that due to a technical error on our part some of you who have opted-out of distribution are seeing image sales on your account via distribution sales.

 

We are aware of the issue that these sales shouldn't have happened for those opted-out of distribution, and we're investigating to establish what happened so we can resolve this as soon as possible. We'll be paying all contributors 100% of the commission from these sales. If you think you shouldn't have seen these distribution sales on your account, you can email [email protected] however we will be getting in touch with everyone affected once we have a clearer picture on the matter.

 

Thanks,

 

Alamy

I got a bunch of distro sales from China for 22 to 2 cents for which I get 5 to 0 cents. I'm opted out of China this year. Plus 2 cent sales for which the photographer gets 0 is never ok. They need to put a floor on the amount the photographer gets. It doesn't have to be very high, but it should definitely not be 0.

I just received the same answer from them....  >:(

Gosh, you guys will soon be paying the customers and Alamy a fee each for downloads you get from these deals.  ;D

I got the confirmation from Alamy that now I am opted out of distribution and sales in China (... and Russia, of course).

I got the same e-mail saying it was an error etc.  This would be more acceptable if it didn't keep happening, but is sort of the minumum they can do for such a mess up. Also they haven't removed all the deductions so the 100 percent commission hasn't happened yet - it is also unclear if that means for a 2 cent sale I get a whole 2 cents, or if I only get one cent because the distributor who didn't have permission to sell (or give away) the image still gets their cut. The actual money is negligable, but maybe if they get nothing for their thieving they won't do it as often.

More worrisome is why they ever allow any distributors to sell images for 2 cents - or 10 cents or whatever that low.

Beware! When April finally arrives, they may change their contributor agreement over night so that we should have opted out in March!

I've sent an email yesterday, they replied that they're aware of the problem and they proposed me to opt out now for me with China and Novel use. I've checked the site and it's done.

Got that answer

"We're very sorry that due to a technical error on our part you are seeing image sales on your account via distribution sales.

as well and still wonder what this will mean or what will happen...
