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.

What? Where did he say that? Well, the sales HAPPEN at different Getty sites, Thinkstock and photos.com - so Getty is doing the sales, creating the reports and send them to iStock. That's why iStock doesn't have full control of the timing. But the data needs to be imported to iStock's system, and that's where the problem starts as it wasn't built to have millions of sales added from outside. Well...

Anyways, about the list above: I have sales from the 1st to the 3rd, so at least one of the report has started at the beginning of the month. Download numbers are far lower than April, so I guess it's not the full report yet. It is terribly slow, even compared to the months before. And it's not only photos.com as you offered as one potential explanation, actually I only found Thinkstock sales so far.

Yes, Monday it is. Until then we might see a handful of additional sales coming in but no one will take care to solve the question why it's going so slow...

I may have misinterpreted his meaning, this is what he said on the PP thread
"Still, you are assuming that we, iStock, have control over the rate and timeliness of the PP data being sent to us. We don't. We don't hold onto the data for extended periods of time because we revel in the idea of having our contributor ask continually when the payments will be processed..." 
Maybe he just meant they can't make their system work.

I am just so annoyed right now. I have enough to cash out but I want to wait for the PP payments - to top off the tank so to speak. But they seem to have stalled. Quelle surprise!

I just hate the idea of letting IS keep my money but I am too stubborn to ask for payout before I get what is due me. Am I cutting off my nose to spite my face or just being greedy?

You are only asking what you have EARN Wiser thus not greedy at all...

I'd cash out now, it could take another week to get PP completed and by then (depending on how much you sell) you may be close to payout again?

Got banned as I was a little annoyed that the PP sales came in so slowly, and Lobo couldn't handle my cynicism.

I simply posted: "We won't get our money before Monday, mark my words."

bummer. a harmless and true enough sentiment. I think they're quite touchy about PP, as they know it's a mess.

It's halfway through a Canadian weekend (give or take), and I've only had one PP sale through, from 3rd.  I know I only have a small port, but I usually see more than that, especially if this weekend is May AND June.  It sounds like I'm not alone in seeing far fewer sales than expected (though do correct me if I'm wrong), which is a) reassuring, it's not just that my port has gone down the plughole, and b) concerning, what is going on with PP?

"Knackered".  Had to use my dictionary for that one.  The Istock forum is really good for my English.  I'm learning lots of new words they don't teach you at school in Belgium   ;D

UK and Ireland English have some of the best words. Irish slang is just too dang good.

in lesser polite terms I'd say "buggered" rather than "knackered".

Antwerpen, mooie en leuke stad. Ik heb heel lang in Asten en Helmond gewoont, in Noord Brabant Nederland, maar ik woon nu in Dublin.  :)

No, no, it's definitely knackered, like an old, broken-down horse off to be slaughtered at the knacker's yard.

It's a good word for iStock as a whole, actually, conjuring up, as it does, thoughts of something that was once young, virile and useful, but which has grown old and tired, and is being abused and torn apart so that the last bits of value can be scraped from its twitching carcass. (Or is that too graphic?).

So, according to you, more you wait more you have sold?
I am still waiting
Hurrah I will become rich!!
