Okay, I thought I was just missing something that was right in front of me :)  Now I see it takes serious dedication to figure out what sold.  In the old days I just let the sales ring through and I didn't try to hunt down these ones that weren't so obvious.  Nowadays, with a lot less sales I've gotten more curious to see where these bigger amounts come from when they show up on occasion.  Thanks Disorderly!


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


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.


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.

I just noticed a 6 dollar PP download. I thought they were all 28 cent

They usually are but there seems to be the odd 'OD' and 'EL' equivalent  - I've had a few for a couple of bucks and one solitary $24

I got a $6 PP today as well.  The original announcement states "Royalties from Getty Images 360 will be reported monthly under the Getty Images category in your stats. "  (http://www.istockphoto.com/forum_messages.php?threadid=352445 - and ugh, I've just seen the new logo.  Is istock now supposed to appeal to 3 year olds?).  Livestock tells me my PP was from Thinkstock.

I'd contact CR to get confirmation of where my 'PP' sale is from, but they must have a huge backlog. I have a ticket waiting for an answer from 11th Sept. If I don't see anything on the forum tomorrow, I'll take out a new ticket and get a good dose of patience.

It seems like these are probably Getty 360 sales since they are being reported around the time that the GI sales were reported and they are for much higher amounts than most or all PP sales, also ShadySue got one that seems like it can only be explained by Getty 360.  I wonder if the consensus has changed about these sales?

Consensus about the 360 program hasn't changed for me cuz it's my understanding that the program hasn't begun yet.  I'm sure if it had started up there would have been some kind of announcement; and contributors have been asking about it recently.

I just had a support ticket answered in less than a week, it probably depends what type of question you are asking.  You might as well send one now, the sooner you ask the sooner you'll get a response.

Either that or I'm a Z-lister. I'm sure that question is easier to answer than this one, but I've asked it anyway.

It's taking too long already. I don't expect PP sales tomorrow, so that'll be next week, around 28-29 September...Again, very late.


Edit: Lobo stated  "We will push August PP royalties Monday. Have a good weekend."
That's when I want to cash out, what a bad timing :\

I'm close to cashing out as well and the PP should put me over the top; pushing it to Monday delays our payday by another week; us and many others I suspect....most likely the reasoning behind the reporting 'delay'.

Perhaps a good time to open a Skrill account and cash out on Tuesday?  I like having two options to get my money.

Lobo announced a few minutes back that the payout has started. I haven't seen any yet but it's early days.

Why? The terms of the agreement are that payments will be made in the following month. They've still got a week to complete it.
I'm no fan of iStock's treatment of us but I don't understand why they get criticised for adhering to the payment terms.

Indeed but I'm an impatient prole. I see Lobo has made a further announcement so I will now climb the wooden hills to bedfordshire in the secure knowledge the PP will be completed by the time I'm eating my breakfast kipper.

Because Lobo assured in the PP forum that the royalties would be paid today.

They still have 7 1/2 hours in iStock's 'today', don't they?
You never know, they might manage it!

Because actually they don't? If I remember correctly the June PP payments came through sometime in mid to late August. Basically Istock are becoming ever more inconsistent and unreliable as each month passes. That also gives me concern about the accuracy of the reporting.
