You can see which files you've sold in August using the Getty contributor app... but you can't see the amount you've sold them for thou.

And I guess no official comment (in this day of social media, communications i.e. instant) about what is happening?
Your guess is wrong. It was announced on their own forum and on their two official Fb groups.

What this?

https://contributors.gettyimages.com/forum/default.aspx?g=posts&t=10086&p=3#post108796

I see no official Getty annoucement? Maybe I missed the link you refer to Sue? I am not on Facebook - so maybe I have missed their official annoucement as to why our stats are not being displayed...
You've agreed when getting access to their forums not to quote from there, and possibly to link to there.
The official announcement is on the page before the page you linked to: Kelvin is the official forum moderator.

How bizarre - you complained about the announcement not being made instantaneously on social media, yet you're not on the social media they announced it on! (You are perfectly entitled not to be on Fb, but it doesn't put you in a strong position in this case!) For all I know, they may have announced it elsewhere (I don't check Twitter very often, and amn't on any other SM), but IMO if it's been officially announced on their own forum, they have announced it.

And BTW, their contract doesn't say they have to tell us by the 25th, it only says that
"5. Compensation
a. iStock agrees to pay you royalties (the Royalties) within 30 days after the end of each month in which the license or sale was made (except for royalties payable on subscription downloads, which shall be paid in the month following the end of the applicable subscription term, and when sales reporting is delayed, whether made by a Distribution Partner or otherwise, in which case payments will be made in the month following the date such sale is reported)

So they have broken our contract if they don't pay us by the 30th, but the rest isn't contractual.

Not sure I care about rules TBH - they will ban me if they want, I have no concern... anyone report if you want, it is beyond my concern...
Nevertheless, it should be said in case someone else who does care has forgotten and quotes from there or links to there. I can't find a link to the forum agreement. Funny you care that little, yet here you are, caring enough to complaining with slight basis. I'm 'annoyed', but I checked the contract1.
Quote
The forum you mentioned doesn't give me any information...
There is an official announcement by Kelvin on the page before the page you linked to. I.e. you linked to page 3, the announcement is on page 2. And in fact, you directly linked to a statement by Kelvin with further information, so ...?

Quote
I wasnt talking about payment, I was talking about statements... I thought statements had to be reported by the 20th?
1You see if you can find it in the contract - I looked and I didn't see it.

OK thanks Sue

Can you tell us where to find this app, please?
Someone mentioned it on here recently, but didn't follow up when asked.

Heard they have a 'Glitch' in the accounting system. No ETA as to when it will be fixed... :(

The only email I've had from  Getty today is the one requesting imagery of Christmas in India.  ::)

Like you say, it's all about the rdp. My two best download months this year also had the two lowest -by far! - rpds, so these monthly totals were relatively poor.

Just got the email - with 10% more sales than last month, a dreadful average rpd means my total is just under half of last month's total.

Well, inasmuch as it's a payment for sales in August, yes: but I presume that's not what you meant. My August payment has also just gone into PayPal, so it's early! :-)

Think I got confused !! Strange that some have been paid and others haven't had their reports!

Hey everyone,

So I see the numbers of photos on the site now.  I think a few of my sales are from getty images, 1 is from thinkstock, a couple are istock subs and credits.

Do these different buyers mean different rates of return?

I've received my payment, but not the report. Based on my payment, the report is going to be a sad one when I do get it. I'm usually slow in August and September though... so no surprise.

Got paid today, at least. Istuck doesn't irritate me so much now.  ;D

Still seeing no stats on ESP.
