Any updates?  Are you selling much RF editorial on Alamy?  I have a fair amount of editorial on the micros and am thinking about uploading them RF editorial to Alamy but want to make sure it's worth the effort.  Kind of annoying that you have to go and designate them as editorial after uploading.  Are your RF editorial sales there comparable to regular RF or RM sales?

Alamy is so unpredictable.

I look at Alamy like buying multiple lottery tickets...most of the time the ticket will be worthless but soon (?) enough you'll find a ticket that would be worth a lot...then back to same old waiting and frustration. Sales on there for me have ranged from $5 to $250 (gross).

Alamy is editorially-based so it makes sense to upload all your editorials on there.

Not much difference between RF and RM in terms of sale values on there. The future of stock is RF in any case since that's what most buyers prefer (old-timers on the Alamy forum would disagree though as many refuse to license as RF).

I think you have it and yes unpredictable and I can't tell the difference between before and now for RM and RF Editorial. Now is the same as my first year, in dollars, but nothing changed. I made more per image, now I make less and more sales, sale income. I'll say, the important part, money in the bank, hasn't been any different from six years ago.

From your dashboard, check 'Sales History' and that lets you know when the buyer notified Alamy of a sale.
From your dashboard, check 'Account Balance' and you can see whether a sale has been paid or not. That's where the big gap can come about. (Minimum 45 days, apparently)

However, if you don't know that the image was taken from Alamy, they won't be able to help you. My files there are all exclusive to Alamy (though they don't have to be, so long as RM files there would be RM elsewhere).
Thanks ShadySue.
I checked those pages. All sales have a date in the "Date purchased" column, if that is what I should look for.
As you said, it doesn't matter if I don't know who sold the file. I will contact A in a few days though.

Thanks again.

They do not have big sales but they are serious and have good support. They are very respectful!
