Getty remitted my payment??

(1/2) > >>

Hey everyone, just got a mail from getty. It says remittance advice and " Getty Images has sent you this notification.
> The following payment has been remitted:"

Does this mean they are sending me money or have they cancelled it? My paypal acc is still dry as a bone

No wonder you're asking. Remit is one of these oddly ambiguous words that means two almost opposite things:
"remit verb past tense: remitted; past participle: remitted rɪˈmɪt/
    1. cancel or refrain from exacting or inflicting (a debt or punishment).
    "the excess of the sentence over 12 months was remitted"
    synonyms:   cancel, set aside, revoke, repeal, rescind, abrogate, suspend More
    "the fines imposed on the Earl of Lancaster were remitted"
        Theology: forgive (a sin).
        "God's act of remitting the sins of guilty men"
        synonyms:    pardon, forgive; excuse, overlook, pass over
        "remitting their sins"
    send (money) in payment or as a gift.
    "the income they remitted to their families"
    synonyms: send, dispatch, forward, transmit, convey;"

However, if I was told a payment had been remitted, I'd expect a payment - mabye it takes a wee while to show up in your PayPal account?

Getty giving money back???? Seriously? LOL!! no way

The amount is 75 bucks....  Not sure what their payment threshold is

Does it mean that a file has been refunded? Odd way of wording it if so.
