(I edited this to sound more pessimistic than before...):

To summarize:
- Alamy's percentage for direct sales and for distributor sales will
rise by 5%
- An end to bank transfer fees
- No more cheque fees
- No charges on foreign exchange fees for payments

Sorry guys but you misread the news:

Alamy will increase it's OWN commission by 5% to support the opening cost of new offices in US and hopefully grow their market share there.
That means our commission will decrease by 5%, from 65% to 60%, but more sales in US will hopefully compensate for that.  This has been discussed in their blog.

Oh crap... I need to learn to read... :(

I was already wondering how everything sounded so amazingly good...
Luckily the removing of the stupid bank transfer fees and currency conversion fees
will (almost?) make up for the lost 5%

oh I jumped the gun,or I was being too optimist :)
but like you mention if they bring in more  sales from the US that'd compassionate it  and  despite the lower cut they are still the ones that offer the fairest  percentage  among the agencies that I am with. But thank so for the heads up:)

Overall, I think it's good news,  -5% is a lot, but if it can result in a new market, well

..plus..it's not like we have a choice,

i started to upload massively, i hope to see some return until xmas..

Company expansion at the expense of contributors?! Seems like a strange business model to me.
