Title: No money
Post by: HappyBunny on September 14, 2021, 06:26
I have just seen on Alamy that they have given away one of my photos for free. It says RF 0. Is that normal? Can that happen? It never happened to me so far. That's worse than iStock.

Is it possible, that this sale is below $0.50, so that it gets rounded to $0 in the display on the main page?
Can you check your "Sales History" - there you will see the cent values too like $0,??

I had such a sale in July'21 where i got $0,25 which was shown as $0 on the main page

Alamy's opaque bookkeeping drives me nuts.

Alamy is the only agency that I deal with that refers to the total sales value in my "Revenue" chart, prior to deducting their commission.   The other agencies at least are honest enough to report what we actually got paid after they deducted their large cut.

It used to be that seeing what the other companies took out of the full sale would have been super painful. eg - Istock - congrats on your $100 sale, we took $85. - not nearly as nice as you got a $15 sale. sadly Alamy now takes a pretty huge cut out of some sales, and a big cut out of the rest. I used to be more forgiving of waiting months for sales to clear etc. When they take over 75% of some sales though, it makes me much less forgiving and patient of their "quirks".

Soon they will give you $.10 and make you wait months and even refund that that image a few months later and take back your $.10

After years of good sales in alamy, now it's dead for me. I was patient and left my portfolio there  but after their commission structure change I can't wait months to get sales. So deleted my portfolio there. Will have to wait 6 months now
