Of course, only if they sell, it's good.

When you sell it's for a better price than microstock but with a small port I've only had three sales in twelve months. There are lots of threads to read here about it.

They're like a long term investment.  Nothing much happens early on but as the years go by, they slowly increase sales.  They're one of a few sites where I think there's still potential for me to increase my earnings.  They also prove that a site can do very well paying 50%, that's good for contributors.

Agree with what's been said above, especially the advice to check out the many other Alamy threads.
However, to manage your expectations, be aware that the vast majority of sales are discounted or heavily discounted, depending entirely on the deal the buyer has with Alamy, sometimes netting under $2. You can opt out of some specific deal programmes, but many discounted sales are 'mainstream'.

60% commission trough Alamy
50% commission trough "Novel Use"
30% commission trough "Distribution" ( 30% for Distr + 40% for Alamy ).

And excellent price range, except novel use... but sales aren't so proportional like other agency's.

I believe you are asking about video (since the thread is in the video forum).
Alamy never took video seriously and I have never heard of anyone selling video successfully there.
As far as I know they do not accept video anymore, at least from new contributors

Yes, I was asking only about video sales on Alamy.  Thanks for the info.

It is certainly the case that Alamy no longer accept new contributors for video.

Sorry, I missed that this was the video forum. My remarks above were only re. stills. I haven't read anything good about video there.

They also now don't accept new clips from existing video contributors. As soon as that was announced they made my best day's sales of video clips. Real pity they've more or less given up.

Such a shame that they didn't try the same strategy they have with stills for video. I'm sure they could of been successful if they had done that.  Severely limiting content was never going to work.
