I was wondering if anyone might happen to know what "Connect" refers to under Type on the Statements Tab in Deep Meta?

If you look under where it says Items for Connect it shows a number that appears to represent a number of downloads, but I am not sure.

Normally the figure has been very low, so I never paid much attention to it, but I saw a spike in the Connect number on the December 2018 Statement, so it has me curious now.

Here's a link to the official explanation: https://contributors.gettyimages.com/HelpArticle.aspx?article_id=5176


In the Royalties tab in Account Management, you will have an option to view a Connect statement.

Connect is a solution we offer to customers that allow them to embed Getty Images content, metadata and search functionality directly inside their tools, products and services. For example, through Connect we can collect royalties on views of Getty Images content.

Thank you Franky. Is this something that contributors get paid for in some way?

In DeepMeta, go to the Sales section and type connect in the top right search bar. All your connect sales are shown, along with your received royalty.

It's usually around $0.001, but I've had connect sales for videos of $2.5
Much it ain't, but see it as an extra. The Connect program is an attempt to serve customers in a more contemporary/internet-centered way. At least, that's my take on it.

Mostly not, except for a few larger than usual connect sales.
FAQ: "In the Connect TXT file, there are transactions for fractions of a cent. Does that amount carry forward to future statements and pay out once the $0.01 threshold is met? "

Answer: "No. An image needs to be viewed enough times within the terms of the license (the month the image was licensed from Getty Images to the customer and for which we received a specific amount of ad revenue) to generate at least a $0.01 royalty. If an image is viewed for a license in one month (January) but not viewed again until a future license (February) and those views only yielded a fraction of a cent, then those part of a cent royalties are not carried forward and added together. "

The other tiny sales don't earn you anything, Getty just keeps and aggregates them all. They're presumably doing well out of this, even if we aren't.

Thank you. I see their earnings now in Deep Meta for the large number of Connect Items I had for December 2018.

The majority of them earned $0.0000X, but on some I got lucky and earned $0.000X.  ;)

So I didn't have any that even earned $0.001.

And I thought the minimum was 0.01
