I have over 2,000 images there and was rather miffed to only have one sale in fact I was so miffed i was actually thinking of taking a few images off and resubmitting to micro stock groups.

My first sale  was on Wednesday the 13th of September and now Friday the 13th of April I have another one for considerably more money so anyone know what the minimum payout is and how long is the wait at the end of the month?? or when the payment clears?

 ;D ;D ;D ;D

$250 is the answer

and it takes quite a while for the payment to clear... but nice once the $$ finally come.

In my experience the avg. earnings/image/year at Alamy are about 20 times higher than at IStock (my earnings at other micros are not worth to mention).

The success at Alamy is completely in your own hands as they do no editing besides checking the technical quality of your files.

If you submit good images that are well edited and precisely keyworded you will get a lot of clicks and comp downloads. This will lead to a good search ranking and as a result to healthy sales. Alamy calls this concept AlamyRank. For me it works very well.

If you use Alamy just as a dumbing ground for IStock rejects you will probably see no sales at all.
