Interesting, isn't it? It's next to impossible now to follow personal sales yet somehow IStuck has swelled to second place in the poll results......how do you spell "manipulation"?
The sales on the poll are from December, when the stats were still visible. Exclusive has dropped at least 8 points since the end of Dec.

I think someone mentioned that today was the last day to retrieve our stats, is that right? If I download the CSV file from the monthly earnings is that the only information we are able to retrieve or is there somewhere else?

I do go to the forum occasionally but it's quite confusing where to look for the latest information.

They got rid of the CSV file download earlier than they indicated

Where did you find the download link?

All my account/sales info shows no download link for CSV's on Firefox and Google Chrome only shows a daily stats CSV nothing for an annual download

I did it on my phone, no problem.
For the computer (It worked drectly from FF last night but this morning I can't seem to change from daily to monthly - the below is working as of this moment):
Go to the top thread ("Unification changes ..." on the Discussion Forum on the iS site. The top post there gives several links to 'missing' information, including links to the CSV for 2016, 2015 etc.  (clicking the link starts the download, so I don't have the URI).

So, thanks to the DeepMeta I figured out I had a few credit sales in January ;D But we can't really see which images have sold right?

Thanks Sue

I found it I was fooled by the csv download icon being rendered incorrectly on the stats/graph page (white box on white)

Thanks for that. Just did a bunch of screenshots for each year going back to 2007. 10 years!

Took a little trip down memory lane and scrolled through them all. For the first few years I was doubling income every year. I remember how exciting it all was. Good times!

Just downloaded and installed DeepMeta (not an expert) and from what I have found so far you kinda can. Just click once or twice the "Downloaded" button at the top of the image table, it will sort it with the latest on top. I haven't figured out if it's possible to see whether the image was downloaded more than once...

I had 3 sales on Thurs and 1 on Fri - I can tell from that page because they weren't there before, and it's also confirmed on my stats chart and in DM.
AFAICS, you can't see how much each individual sale was for, unless it happened to be the first sale for a file.

Same here. No info on sales. But a combination of iStock daily statistics (a link is somewhere earlier in the thread) and the DeepMeta latest downloads  gives me enough info to get an idea how much each of them were sold for. Insane.

That sort order has most recent sales at the top.
You can see sales on your normal daily stats chart.

I was talking to a tax accountant a few months ago and she said that when you don't know how much you are making you can always file a "reasonable assumption". We had a laugh back then, but now I know why this option exists  8)

Does your country not give you a time buffer in which to file your returns?
I've just submitted my tax return for the year ending 5th April 2016.

I can see sales on stats, I can see each sale in csv I can see total in DM. But no idea what files by name. Just like you, we can find bits and pieces here and there but won't know details until Feb

For taxes the reporting is the same as always, it's last years income, will come on 1099 or reported for 2016 sales, so makes no difference for 2017 taxes yet. At least I see it that way. If we were paid in 2016 that's what we claim for taxes. January sales are meaningless for 2016? right?

Just waiting for Feb 1st now, we are in the darkroom while things develope.  :)

That's a very generous time buffer.  :)

My country is very backwards on taxing intangible property exports. If you don't have a brick and mortar store and a contract to every sale, "the man" is very confused. You can't get two consistent opinions from two different people, be they tax men or tax professionals, on how to file that type of income. But that of course has no relevance to what iStock is doing (or not doing). Just doing the best they can I guess.

In DM, when you sort by download, does it not show you the specific files with 'date sold' like this?

And is that order not the same as your 'last downloaded' file on the link I gave above?

BTW, FWIW, either DM isn't recording views which don't result in sales or else I haven't had any views not resulting in sales for days now.

I only see views too, but if you say the files are sorted by recent sales then it could make sense, thank you.

As for the DeepMeta - nope it doesn't show my downloaded files properly, if I sort by "downloaded" it only shows stats on 3 files downloaded in 2015, the rest is blank.

A lot is left to the imagination with IStock these days ;D

On your profile page on iS, financial tab, payout report is under the heading 'earnings'.
