Only about 25% of my sales are in so far. The first 2/3 of the month...and a couple of days at the end...are still missing or way under reported.

Same here.  The 20th through 28th look about right, but they still need to revisit 1st through 19th.

Nothing's changed in several hours. Did it stall again? Can they not get one dev person to check in over the weekend?

Somewhere in a parallel universe, maybe.

Right now, May resulted in 1/3 of previous months, with only 1 week showing "normal" sales (and peanuts for the other weeks).  This means that if they can "fix" the other weeks, May could be a pretty good month for PP.

I just had 2 PP sales for June show up - on the 10th
Looks like June will be as screwed up as May.

Yeah, last two weeks of May appear to have been very good weeks.  When we finally get 1-19th completed it may turn out to be a very good month. 

Hoping they are able to finish the reporting for May soon. 

And I am happy for any additional word from Lobo.  I don't always like the news, but it beats silence, IMO.

Ive got a PP sale for the 10th of June as well... So I suppose the May reporting is "finished"...

Me too. This does not bode well for June. Why is it starting on the 10th instead of the 1st? Looks like the same "glitch" they had for May.

From Lobo:
"Everyone's graphs will look that way. There is currently no need for everyone to post their graphs. We are well aware that there was a reporting issue from May 1-19. We have a solution prepared. I'll have an update later this morning on what's being done to correct that."


Oh, boy, I always love iStock's "solutions".    I am only $0.11 away from making payout after I deleted all but 2 images in my portfolio, so this extended PP saga has been killing me (I rarely make sales on IS - it was mostly PP).   I just want to make that last payout so I can leave the account dormant and forget about IS and all its drama.

^^ The "solution" is probably vodka.

True.  The only thing they have perfected is incompetence.

Well, my account is now closed out, but I will not get any money owed me until all partner program sales are tallied. At the rate it is going now, and the fact that I will have to wait on July PP sales stats, I believe that maybe by Christmas I might see my money.

Hi Bruce,

Thank you for your message and sorry to see you go.

Your account has now been closed as requested and final payment details have been sent to accounting to payout after 30 days to include any partner program royalties earned. Note that partner royalties are ingested the following month, therefore in order to ensure that we pay out all monies owed to you, it may take up to 60 days before your account balance is closed.

Best of luck to you in your future endeavors.


Sincerely,


Kaylene

Late afternoon there now, isn't it?

So they're going to wait for June to complete before fixing May? Holy mackerel, that will take another aeon.

Maybe I am being overly optimistic at this point, but looks to me they have managed to get this thing sorted out at last.  I doubt June will take anywhere near as long as May did.

Oh, I see that he edited the initial message, instead of putting a new post in the thread. You need to be clairvoyant to keep up.

Deja vu? No June PP sales for me until June 11.

I am showing PP sales for May 16th, May 21-31 and June 10-13.  Weird.  The May amounts are way below what I usually get for PP sales so I hope even the days with sales reported are not complete.

This is from the May OP

UPDATE: JULY 22, 2013

We applied a fix on Friday that would have impacted all PP payments from May 20-May 31. This fix will have to be applied to the first two thirds of the May PP payments BUT we are going to let the June payments complete before push said fix.

CLARITY: The MAY 1-19th royalty adjustments will be be addressed as soon as we have completed the June PP sales. I will have an another update mid-day Tuesday July 23, 2013.

The PP for May appears to be done thus a little lower than I expected for May.
