Confused by the "sarcasm", but since the implementation of their exclusivity, and I have a fair bit of exclusive images, number of sales have increased significantly.

First quarter this year shows more than double the number of sales compared to the same period last year with only a modest increase in portfolio size. Healthy sales prices too. Alamy is one of very few things that are positive in this industry at the moment and actually looks good for the future, compared to most others.

I get the sarcasm  ;)

The exclusive nonsense has no effect on sales as customers are not able to see what is exclusive or not.

Also the reporting time for sales is so long that any spike in sales would have been for images sold months before the implementation of "exclusivity"

All I can say is that my sales revenue for none exclusive images have been cut by 20%!

My rpd is vastly down there despite all my files being de facto exclusive and c99.5% being exclusive nby their rules.

Last year was a great year, then suddenly sales completely stopped.

I had 1 payout last year, but for a while now there are no sales.

Uploading is easy but it seems pointless, so I'm thinking about stopping to upload despite of easiness.

I'm still getting the same amount of 'clicks' thou and CTR is the same as last year.. So either AL doesn't sell anymore or they're not reporting the sales.

My sales and zooms have stopped but I never had a huge number so its not really evidence of any real change.

Since 1 april 2 sales but for 1 dollar each (before cut...) . March, 10 sales but very low values. Almost don't pay the time to submit images on Alamy.

Hasn't been long enough to give the plan a fair trial, but I appreciate your point and humor.  ;D

I'll give it more than a month or two, maybe the rest of the year, then I'll see. Oh and I predict I will agree with you, but still I like to be fair.



Fair in impartial panel of Microstock artists is on the way to review the new Alamy Exclusive Plan.  ;)

It isn't really long enough to see the results on my end, but based on the sales "doubling" at 123RF and Istock I don't expect any increase in sales and that means a decrease in money for me. So far refunds have doubled.
