I don't take a regular look at the ESP site because I find it awkward and tricky to navigate at times. However, I noticed that late last year, my earnings were just over $70 and then the following month, the amount was slightly over $2. So my question is - where did the rest of that money go? I didn't receive a payout. I checked PayPal and there is certainly no payment from iStock / Getty for that time period. I did get a payout from them once before.

Another thing I should add is that I actually earned just over $100 in that period but due me foolishly not updating the tax form, they took out a huge chunk of tax which left me with a little over $70. Though regardless, I don't know how it dropped from over $70 to just over $2 with no payout.

You'd get a better idea of what's happening with your iStock account if you used:-

I have used Deepmeta in the past for submitting photos. I had no idea it contained earnings information as well.

Edit: Ive just checked out "Sales" in Deepmeta after signing in and all the fields under the headings are blank.

You may need to contact Support.
(Though for some odd reason, I don't get replies to my support tickets, although they say they've been sent. I do get their other emails though).

Sale reversals maybe?

Yea I'll try contacting support.

Sale reversals maybe?

What are sales reversals? Are they instances where buyers get refunded for purchases they no longer want? If that's the case, I find it hard to believe there were over $100 worth of refunds from countless purchases made over many, many months. Regardless, that is a lot of money to disappear.

They got back to me and said that because I hadn't updated the tax form, they put my payment on hold. I had to complete a tax interview and some time later, they delivered the payment. I got most of what they owed me (seemed to be short of a few dollars.)

Nice work, and good that you collected.

Here's another one for tracking that's pretty straight forward.
