Some people were reporting PP sales coming in 12 hours ago, or more.

It's not supposed to start until the weekend.  http://www.istockphoto.com/forum_messages.php?threadid=354958&page=1


Hi tickstock,

Thank you for the link. Which I've been reading since it's started.
But I'm confused, why some people has already reported that's they had one or two PP sales.

My recorded sale is for May 2, with nothing on May 1, which suggests one of several things:
a) Columns are going to be filled up randomly (it has happened in the past)
b) They have not started the script at the 1st and will go back to it later (it has happened in the past)
c) It is reporting photos.com sales first and there aren;t many of them (I think that has happened in the past)
d) The script is not recording all the sales (It has happened in the past)
e) It is a complete coque-up... (as frequently.....

I'm all disoriented.  My hubby's off on Fridays for the summer so I thought today WAS the weekend and was starting to stress that I haven't seen any PP sales yet. 

All good theories above.  I tend to think it's A or C. 

Guess I will have to wait until tomorrow to start seeing significant numbers.... :)

getting 503 error when attempting to check my sales- could they be upgrading the PP?

Site has been down for about 30 minutes now -- some people getting a "Server Error", some a 503 page, some a blank white page, and it doesn't seem to be browser specific.

no, surely you'd have a planned outage for upgrades? how does PP reporting crash the whole site??

Agree, they've been very good about giving advance notice for maintenance.  This was probably an unexpected "oops".

hopefully it means they are trying to do stuff, although I have nothing more than one PP sale for the 2nd may.

Mine started this morning.  The first ones are on the 5th.  Don't know if that has any relevance?

so, some of you are reporting that pp sales has started?

I usually get 3-6 PP downloads daily (April), with almost 40% less images in portfolio, so if it has started and bug is fixed then something other is very wrong here because I still have no PP sales for whole May.

Ditto! This might be very, very bad...

It rather seems as if PP has stalled on take-off and crashed. And by tradition, nobody will bother fixing it before Monday. It was interesting that Lobo said the payments were processed from Getty, not from iStock, and I doubt if anybody at Getty gives two hoots about them. Just another chore for someone.


Don't panic, though, it's not the first time they have started, stuttered and stopped.

Got one DL yesterday and another one appears to have dribbled out this morning. I doubt anyone will try to resolve this until Monday now - when someone from IT strolls in after their coffee and croissants and whacks the main server with a mallet.
