So when I pulled my port from iStock, I left a single file:  http://www.istockphoto.com/file_closeup.php?id=11367333

In the file's download details it shows a single download on March 16th for 0.14 (xSmall Regular), this is the only download for this file listed.  My Uploads agrees with this, there is only one file with one download, as do the stats page. 

However, the stats pages also show a single download for February 28th (in blue, so it must have been a file purchase, right?) for 0.08.  This does not show up anywhere else on the site and my account balance actually is 0.22. 

Any ideas on the phantom, unrecorded download?  Did I miss any news about accounting issues at iStock?

Does that file appear on Thinkstock, too? Maybe you got a royalty from that as well?

Just guesses, who really knows, including istock.  ;)

That's weird.  Maybe ask support?

Hmm, so my account was opted in, but on the file edit page for that file, it was *not* opted in, which should be correct, as I went into the Partner Program setup in the settings and used the 'All Off' portfolio before I removed my port.

I went back into My Uploads and switched to Deactivated files, sorted by date.  Turns out they sold a file on February 28th, 1011 that I had deactivated at iStock on October 10th, 2010...

Um...

TS doesn't pay as low as 8c, only iStock does that.

I am trying to find my surprised face but it is nowhere to be seen.

Sounds like another one for the BBB of Canada.

Edit:

I had asked about something here previously, but found it already.
