IS is going better and better. Iam really surprised. 4 months started and each month a little bit better.
In the same time SS failes for me. 10% increase at IS and 10% decrease at SS.
+-0  :D

SS is really weird the last few months. Some weekdays are a few bucks with zero OD and two days later I make $15 in od, 60 sub dis, and score a decent day. And without te special sales and video I would be on the downward slide with SS.

Hi guys,

I am pretty new to iStock and only a bit over 500 images there.

I have a couple of questions:

1) Are all the PP sales for June already in or they should coming in until the end of July?

2) Are all the PP sales 28 cents or they have other formats?

Please let me know,

thanks!

They appear to be done for June.  They add IS subs after PP, and they already added subs.  There are some schemes that pay more than .28, but very few of them.  Most sales seem to be .28.

You can see all the details in the Partner Program tab here (ignore everything it says about photos.com as that's been shut down for licensing and now sells prints):

Why does IS make it so difficult? That's the question I'd like to see answered. Every other site I've seen, even podunk start ups, makes it easy to see your earnings and they report sales the day or even the minute they happen.

plus you get to upload a new model release each time you submit a person shot which is a major P.I.T.A.

I like IS, it's my best earner and all... but * they should come to this century already.
The time I spend uploading there is more than all my other 5 agencies put together.

PP is done.
Image subs are done.
Getty - come it will.

Isn't that only if you are lucky enough to get one?

It was an adaptation of a song title (aging myself), but Getty - come it will or won't is certainly more accurate.
I have been lucky enough to get some decent value sales - including of files which haven't sold on iS - but I'd rather not have the 'luck' to get the sub-$1 sales. That's just insulting.

Trust me, I know all about that. I wouldn't be uploading now if it weren't for the combination of Easy Release and DeepMeta. If I had to do a new paper release for all of these, I wouldn't be bothering.

By the way, anyone know how long it takes to get payout after you request it? I ordered mine first thing Monday morning.

If you got it done before 9am Calgary time on Monday, you'll get paid next Monday (if you use PayPal). Other payment methods have different days.

If you were later than 9am Calgary time, then it'll be two weeks from Monday

My Uploads > GI sales in the left hand column. Also GI sales are purple on your charts, though Getty360 sales are mossy-green like PP.
There might be an app or code to work out which sales sold on GI, but if you don't use these, the only way to tell which files sold in a particular month is to keep doing screenshots of your GI sales and comparing them month by month, which is only really viable if your Getty sales are small.
No 'usual' date for coming in, but Subs and PP were early this month, so who knows? No word of June's coming as yet.

I don't know whether that means you are only eligible for Getty360 sales, which don't show in that column, or you haven't had any yet, and that link will appear when you have some to see. Probably the first, if you're indie.
