Forgive me for repeating a question that I am sure has been asked, but I couldn't find a definitive answer.

So I am a new amateur stock photographer who began in august.

On the 19th of september I finally received info that I have 6 sales for August.  However, when I look at my profile and 'downloads year to date' it says I have 28.  Is this because I have 6 sales in August and 24 more in September?

Or is this because sales don't equal downloads?

Or is there another reason?

Further, and to make things even more perplexing, when I click on royalties it gives the message "Royalties data will not be available until your first transaction has occurred. Please try again next month."

Why is this the notification if my sales now show up as 6 and my downloads are 28?  How do I have no transactions?


Any clarity would be much appreciated.


thanks!

Sales $$ for August are due to be reported today, as it's the 20th of the month.
Sales in September should be reported on or before 20th October, etc.
