I only have 100 files left at iStock, so my total for the Connect section was only 14sales and 2 cents! I assume that's the section you're talking about because the royalty free section, for me, doesn't have those teeny-tiny numbers

But the way they report the royalties shows how individual numbers and averages can appear off, largely because of the tiny numbers that often round to 0 but are meaningful when you add up all the connect sales & then round the total.

So my connect sales gross was $0.15827 and the net royalty $0.02379 - i.e. 2 cents. But three of the items listed individually rounded to 1 cent so I initially though they'd "cheated" me of 1 cent :)

Looking at the text file I could see where the 2 cents came from - and those 14 sales average to 0 cents too

Download the connect text file and stick it into Google sheets and you'll be able to see the details of this wretched situation

Yes. This is it! Thanks for the clarification!

We actually have to download from Getty and upload to TodayIs20 two files every month, the regular file AND the Connect file.

Funny to see that my Connect file for July had about 400 downloads totaling less than $2 with $0.00 RPD ;D.
Almost 300 of these Connect DLs are displayed with $0.00, most likely because the 3rd digit is trimmed. This is probably the reason why I still see 16c difference between Getty and Todayis20, probably because of 3rd digit trimming.

Yeah, that's what happens, just that the whole absurd system and the reporting is a mess. Overall, making 5 cents for 35 downloads, just supports, never uploading anything new to them again. (which is a historic note going back to 2018 or before, not news) I might have stopped before that, I don't know anymore. Wait DeepMeta to the rescue...

Last upload Feb. 2017 I guess I shouldn't complain or comment on Getty anymore.
