Hi,everyone. How do I exactly know that which of my file was downloaded? Because sometimes it didnt show on the Last DL. Yesterday my balance was $9.0++ something, but today is $44.00++.Just wonder what was sold this time.Thanks

Lucky you: my two were for $1.47 and 25c!
The sales which came in overnight were Getty Plus sales, bizarrely reported under the PP (green) scheme on your charts.
To see which files sold:
From your Home Page, click on My Uploads in the left hand column, choose Partner Program, click Royalty at the top of the right hand columm to order them in order of earnings, and scroll down until you see the amount. However, if the file has had more than one sale, from PP and/or Getty+, you'll only see the total sales $$, so it will be more difficult to identify which exact file got the sales unless you take screenshots every month.

$35 was a much nicer pick up than mine too  :o

I'm also having trouble finding them! Thank you ShadySue as I didn't realise how to put them in order.

IS is the most difficult site for finding sales, I wish their reporting was better.

I have a 23c and 24c sale (not today), just thought those amounts are strange.

I popped out for the the day, came back, and my balance was about $120 more than it was this morning! Not sure why, as the balance always seems to update before the sales count and the stats, so I'm hoping it's not some kind of mistake. That's about what I normally make in a month, so pretty happy with that!

^^ Again, congrats.
This was what I got in May from Getty (not G+):


To think that once I was really eager to be able to upload to Getty, and dead chuffed when they accepted me (some old scheme via iS, not a Getty 'house' photographer). I'm glad I never took them up on it! Strange how things pan out.

Even though I decided not to go ahead, I was surprised when down the line they closed the scheme because only a small percentage of those selected had submitted anything. Typically, they just closed down the scheme, without (AFAIK) doing any sort of enquiry/survey as to why people who had bothered to apply, and got accepted, didn't take it up.

So, those were Getty sales? Because my PP sales stoped reporting like 10 days ago, and today my balance increased overnight. Not much though, for about $3...

Yes, it would be reported in green bars, and under 'Partner Program' (for no reason they've ever been able to explain) for May, but not your usual PP rate (sometimes high values, but much lower [for me, at least] over the past few months), but they are actually Getty Plus sales, for some portion of Getty buyers who have access to all iS files as well as those from Getty.

It was reported as PP, yes, thats why I thought they were PP sales, although it was weird that it was reported after 10 days since my last PP sales for May were reported. iStock is a real mess. One has to be genious to understand their reporting system, jesus.

Anyway, thanks.

You're not wrong! I just look at the overall balance. After six months I've still not figured out how to find out exactly what sold and when. Or for how much.

ShadySue, where do you find that information you've posted above quoting Getty Images. I haven't found any information like that at all.

Go to the file you want to check in NEW VIEW
Near the top right of the page, hover over File Details and click on View Download History.

In there  you can click on all the different types of sales to see individual sales. If you're indie, you won't have a Getty Images link, as G+ sales will be lumped in under PP.

Thank you ShadySue, I would never have looked there for information. It really is the most confusing site!

It's good to know, and thanks for explaining,  but it would be nice to have a page showing all sales in a month... date, sale price, commission rate, earnings... then you can click through to a file for average sales per month, per year, average earnings per year,  per month etc.

Just when I thought I was starting to understand their reporting, I have some today and yesterday and can't find what it is for. Does anyone have any idea? I've checked PP, subscriptions and straight DLs.

This really is the worst site for finding what sold!
