Anyone had some crazy big sales on iStock today? I normally hit the $100 payout minimum once every other month, averaging about $60 a month. Today I've made $85 in the past few hours. I'm guessing it could be a bunch of extended licenses, but at 15%, that means somebody (or a bunch of people) have shelled out $566 on my stuff in one morning. Big spenders!

Makes me wish the same buyers had stumbled across my VideoBlocks portfolio instead! Anyway, hope there's no sales reversals or anything.

Getty sales have just come in this morning. Still coming in as we speak. A video sale normally brings in around $120 royalty. I think they sell them for around $500+ although you can get a lot smaller royalties too.

My guess is that they are Getty sales? Have you ever been exclusive with them?

Why would you guess instead of checking what the sales were?  ::)

Like Cider Apple says, sales from G+ are in, so you might have struck gold there.
Why not look and see?

The money shows up on my balance straight away, but nothing shows on the actual sales figures or stats for a few days. Not sure if that's the same for everyone, but my total number of sales is showing as the same today as it was a couple of days ago. Takes a while to update for me, so can't see where they came from.

Did you check your sales for July?  I had one a couple days ago that must have been an EL on the PP for July.

I've never experienced that or read about it happening, but maybe it's different for video. July's subs were reporting slightly irregularly, at times, but only by a few minutes.
