Bit of a surprise really as the download information came in late this month. But anyway, not a great month in April. Better than the last two Aprils though.

Better than Jan and much better than Feb. On a par with last April, better than Aprils 20 and 19.

Flat as always. Uploading more content really no longer matters.

Worst month of the year so far, but still better than Shutterstock

Relatively strong month here. Question: when we see an image is downloaded on Getty, do we get a bigger payout than if it was downloaded on iS?
Also, why if I go to Getty and do a search I don't see any iS images?

Okay month, in line with previous months which are way better than 2021. For some reason iStock increased in sales and earnings.

I do keep on getting those 1,2 dollarcent sales from China.
Again some in April, and for quirky or very niche editorial images (e.g. local places of interest or buildings that I cannot imagine anyone in China would care about)  that otherwise never or very rarely sell. Weird.

I still can't see all stats in DeepMeta app, something wrong with it?

"Instead, you can download statement text files from the Getty site manually and import them in DeepMeta, using the new Import button or by drag-and-drop. Note: statements already loaded in DeepMeta are unaffected."

1. Not necessarily, some of the lowest prices come that way because ...
2. IIRC, you're not an iS exclusive, therefore none of your files should be available there to just anybody. However, there's a select group of buyers, probably those with the biggest bulk discount deals, who can see and buy all iS and G files from one account.

Interesting... took a look in deepmeta and found out that roughly 30% of my sales come from Getty, although I only directly contribute to iStock.
Probably also the reason why my Eyeem partner content, which is available on iStock too, gets duplicated to Getty without them noticing the fact that they are are duplicates.

Yes I'm so "excited" that, I'm going to go to sleep, and maybe look tomorrow.  ::)

Is there anyway to exclude sales to China?

Luckily, I don't get many of these 2c sales to China - but I had one refunded!!!

No surprise there, as I said before, it's either late or early, never on 20th.
Very strong month, all in all IS seems to be the best one for me.

And I saw my download counter in DeepMeta drop with 40 today. Refunds? I can't recall any refund at iStock!

Oh thanks I finally found the little blue IMPORT button.

That's why I asked. Latest statement 20 sales each for 1c to China and one 15c refund from the same source for the file they bought in August, 2021. what.

Really? They wanted a refund for the 2 cent partner sales that give us a .003 commission?
