Probably I have missed something.
But I don't see any PP sales for august 2013.
They should appear the 15 of the next month if I remember well, no?

I don't think there's any set date. They've been very late in the past.
Maybe next weekend?

They are supposed to be reported the following month, there is no particular date though they tend to start turning up on the second or third weekend.

Thank you for you answers.
I don't know how and why but I had understood that they appear the 15 of the next month.
My mistake  :-[

You might be confusing them with SS, which I think does say the payout will be made by the 15th.

Right.  I think IS says "by the end of the following month" which gives them a 30-day window.

And if they don't manage it by then, tough, or "Thanks for your patience" at best.

IS/PP have a 30 day window but they're often too feeble to get the window open and sometimes they break it.

They still have 13 sleeps until the end of the month. Have faith.

That's the "FU" clause at the bottom ;)

Seems like all their IT efforts are probably tied up in the site changes that are going on at Istock, so it may be a wait for PP.  Hope I am proven wrong :)

you generally are not wrong about most IS things. But in this case I hope you are wrong too.

Last June/July payout was a cluster. Good $$ but painful to get there.

I've just had a couple of $6 PP sales pop up for the latter part of last month. I don't know what they will be for.

I got one for $44 and change. Took a while to find it; it was a Getty Images sale.

Is it from the Getty 360 deal?

No idea. It listed GI as the partner, but no other details.

What's a $50 Partner Program sale? It was a green column topper from August and said 'Partner Program'. I'm not in the PP but the sale is showing at the top of the PP sales Royalty column. One of these Getty deals, no doubt, just surprised it showing up as PP.

I wonder if that's also part of the Getty 360 program, is it for a file that's not available on Getty already?
Yup, definitely not on Getty. It's a very simple isolation which has only sold once before since 2008.
Let this be a warning to all those who say we should cull old non-sellers.

How do you find it?  I got a sale today for $45 but I have no idea what it was for. No image or video listed as sold today is for that much.

Look at last month's graph, it'll show up purple for GI and green for PP.

Got it, thank you!  So I apparently received $45 for a single partner program license last month?  Not bad.

It wasn't easy.  The Stats tab for August gave me the amount.  Then I clicked on My Uploads, and then Partner Program.  Then I looked for all the images that had earned at least that much.  Luckily (being ironic), only one image of mine had made more than $44.  Then I went back to My Uploads to figure out the URL to get to my royalties for an image.  (The Partner Program page doesn't hotlink to royalty pages.)  Combining the ID of the photo with the royalty URL got me this:

   http://www.istockphoto.com/file_downloads.php?id=99999&PageSetting=PartnerProgram

Replace the ID with yours and then click for the last page if you have more than one.  You should see an entry for the amount you saw on the Stats page.
