tardy. very tardy. slipshod even.

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.

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!

You're right, it has begun!

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.

Yes, I wonder about accuracy, too. Unfortunately, there isn't much we can do to check it. There have been times when there has been partial reporting and it is the chorus of the doubters that seems to have led to the figures being re-examined.

However, it's just blind prejudice to pretend that the August payment is coming in late - when it isn't - just because the June payment was totally cocked up.  Your observations were more helpful in the days before they just boiled down to "SS good, iS bad".


PS: I now have a handful of pp sales for August 1. It's obvious that the run is not going to complete today (but then, I don't think Lobo's "push it on Monday" comment mean that against all previous experience it would be completed on the same day).

I'm still getting a mix of different values, not just 28c.

Where do you see that?
I know about this page about PP statistics http://www.istockphoto.com/user_stats.php
But there is no detail of price.

( I ) divide the royalties to downloads, since ( at least for now ) all of them are 0.28, it is easy to identify.

I don't know any other way to see it..

That's it. You can divide the value for each day by the number of dls. My average includes days with 36c, 30c and several 28c.

Same question here, my total sales jumped up earlier today and I just checked and found some extra$$. It's not a sale I made today. IS isn't the best in statistics etc.

When you're in Stats, move back to last month and any green bars on last month's daily chart bars are your PP sales. There is a page where you can see individual files sold, but although I found it last week, I can't work out where it is now; presumably someone who is actually in the PP can tell you.

If you don't have any green bars, the $4 bump may have been due to an extended licence (Yellow bar, then check the left-hand My Uploads links) or an iS subscription sale from yesterday (or earlier, sometimes).

All correct^^ :)

Just as a side note, for me, the stats on my profile page take an eternity to load, much less to load and then load again for the prior month.  Lately I've been using this direct link and it seems to work better.

Thanks!

Found it....moved  back to august and saw loads of green. However, after august 19th there is not a single partner sale. Are they still processing these? Would have been beter if they just give you an amount instead of these colored bars.


Haven't found the individual sales page either.

Yes, me too have no sales after 19th. I think they are still processing.

There appears to be a gap in the data for 20th and 21st (which might spread into the days on either side of that). The 1st, 7th 8th and 9th are a bit on the light side in my stats, obviously I have no idea if that is just luck or if it reflects incomplete data.
