Yes, thanks, that was very helpful - I have had administrative adjustments almost every month.  Now I finally know why my numbers don't match up with theirs.  Thanks again for the tip - I'm glad somebody knows how to use their system!

iStock is the most confusing site! The amount that I received overnight would have been PP wouldn't it? For the life of me I cannot find what it is! I've even started taking screen shots but that doesn't seem to have helped at all.
Sometimes i get adjustments for a few months back....usually only few c so I don't bother to much to chase them down. They even had those mysterious "non-internet" sales once......

How do you tell if it's adjustments? It's a few dollars so it's not worth worrying too much about but it's driving me crazy that I can't find it.

Go to your home page, and be in the stats tab (shows charts).
Change the Gross Royalties (daily) to monthly - this is important.
Hit the tiny CSV button next to the words Gross Royalties, to open it in a spreadsheet.
In my speadsheet it's column X: Admin Adjustments.
This is the most recent non-credit-sale payment to have been made and relates to the difference between ordinary subs payment and subs package payments. (These latter don't seem to be being promoted ATM, at least I couldn't see it when I looked into plans and pricing on my page. It was claimed it was a targetted offer.)

These adjustments are not really negligible
4.5% of my 2016 IS total is coming from these admin adjustments.

Anyway, after all these adjustments, PP and GI sales, August became my IS BME by a large margin.
I'm not sure if I should be happy or sad, when I know that I'm only getting 16% of the IS sales, leading to a meager $0.69 RPD vs. $0.96 for SS or $1.28 for FT.

Somehow, IS has started to attract more customers, and I would prefer to see them buying from SS and FT, instead of IS.
