Maybe it's starting?  Just had about $400 show up but I can't figure out where it came from yet.  Maybe some kind of bug, looks like GI Connect from February which seems very unlikely.

Something is broken.  My DeepMeta is "not responding."

ED: Ooooops... temporary status.
all is well.
but no NO PP results

No I have some $$ (much less than hundreds!) from GI Connect in Feb and there are other reports of very large (one reporting $3500!) GI Connect sales from Feb/March.

Three days late and bug-ridden. How can we trust anything they do, whether through malice or incompetence.

They were the top micro in the industry, my how the mighty have fallen. Still unbelievable that it would come to this.

and it looks like SS is doing the right thing all the time, paying us today instead of the usual 7th :D

Yes, that was a pleasant surprise, normally I get it on the 7th.

I just got a $1.50 and pray to God this isn't all of it or else I might have to sign up for food stamps   :(

Nobody is going to get more than ten cents for connect.  It's a bug.  Surprise!

okay, I am off to the soup kitchen in downtown Seattle. Maybe I can have someone take a pic of me in line.  I can see the name of the photo- "Chicago Tribune Ex-Photographer awaits free soup"

Perish that thought. Or if it's true, we can mark the calendar as "This is the End".  :)

Just checked and still no May PP reported. You also say none and a few others the same. I'd guess at this point, something is holding up the accounting.

Hey what do we expect? It's only been 35 days since the end of May.  :(

And now apparently there has been a post on Facebook saying it's a bug, it is actually the May Getty payment.

What's this with making relevant announcements on Facebook but not on iStock?

Really nice payment here. Connect or May GI, ok, it doesn't matter too much, looking at the amount.

You wouldn't rather have a reasonable chance that it was being reported accurately?
I'd be more confident if e.g. Lobo had given advance warning, e.g. "The IT guys haven't a clue how to fix the script, but we're going to dump all Getty payments for May into Connect for February. Yeah, that's totally random." rather than some Facebook announcement (where is it? I can't find it on Fb.) after the event.
I'm not saying that it's definitely inaccurate. I'm just saying this sort of mess makes me 'less confident' that it's accurate.
I think we're just supposed to grovel with gratitude that we got paid 'only' four days late.

Yes, of course, but I just was looking at the bright aspect of the matter.

Last year I tried to explain to my car dealer that my Water heating system was broken and I needed the money for his rate to replace it = therefore no money for him this month. Guess what he told me? ;-)
I am not interested in excuses. They have to get their act together. Its not like their cut was to small.

Posted By Lightwriter1949:
So I'm to understand that the PP payments will begin to show shortly beginning this morning?

If you take a look through all the previous PP threads you will notice that payments are added day by day over an entire weekend. We normally run the scripts on a weekend while the site is experiencing less traffic. As it's a HUGE holiday weekend for the US we had decided to start the processing of the PP/GI payments on Wednesday.

All of this happens in phases. Our first concern, much to the chagrin of the non-exclusives, is the ensure the GI sales are processed. These are the payments our Exclusives receive from their mirrored content on Getty Images. The next series of payments that are processed are the Partner Program sales.

So will this be entirely completed this morning? Probably not. Again, from what I recall PP payments typically happen over an entire weekend. We appreciate your continued patience. Our intent is to ensure all these payments are completed before the Cut off dates for the the next Payment Request cut offs. I do understand that our normal schedule would provide these payments BEFORE the end the following month.

I will continue to monitor and update this thread when additional information comes from the Dev team.

That was a response from Lobo, I was asking if the PP payments would start showing this morning, not complete.

Which is funny, since the PP payments _always_ were done first every other month.

True, but maybe they felt they had to throw the exclusives a bone (I realise some exclusives choose to be in the PP.)

Forget about PP payments today, quote from Lobo:

I'm telling you that they will be processed as soon as the GI payment process is complete. Which normally take a day or so to complete.

RE: GI payment process:
