I got a few of them today, similar 4 digits amounts!

Anyone else?

If it turns out to be an error don't forget to sue them for mental pain. :)

Same here, 4 sales, 12000 totally. Does anyone know can I withdraw to paypal not entire amount but only a part? I don't remember, but it seems there can be requested only entirely. I'm afraid Paypal can block.

My "mega sales" are all from November 28, so I can't withdraw anything yet. Anyway, even if I could, I wouldn't do it.
When were your "mega sales" made?

When were your "mega sales" made?
October 25 and already in completed transactions.

OMG, one more for $1500 but from November 14
It seems like some mistake.

Some of mine are licensed as "Products for Resale". I expect larger amounts than usual, but not this level.

Got to be mistake hasn't it? I got several too, well into the 000's. Just adding the ones on here together, without the ones for people who don't post on here, it isi tens of 000's.

Can't be right.

I got answer, this is some kind of error 500px payout system. Cents are changed for dollars or something like that.

Not expecting any good news from this site from here on out. They should change the name from 500px to 5px.

Some software guy working for 500px just had his holiday tension level ratcheted up.  I say that as a former software guy.

I wouldn't lose hope on this one, dodgy companies do dodgy things and it may well be that someone has found their image on products and challenged it.  Once caught out backpayments are due.   I'm not saying 500px are dodgy, but I wouldn't trust them, it could be one of their partners.  I would do a search to see if your images are being sold on products.

101% true. Original post looks like cheap ad of 5px site.

Hmm, I still have to see a statement like "way too good to be true" in an ad.  :o Especially in a cheap one.

Have the people who've been seeing these huge sales actually been able to withdraw the money? I'd be worried about it being clawed back under the "yes, of course it's too good to be true" rule.

well 4000 dollar means a sale of at least 14000 dollar in total. a company that buy an image for 14000, will not look in 500px o find this kind of image. 500px can sale this at 15000 but it means the image will be sold for long time of exclusivity.
in this case is strange there is no communication from 500px to the photographer if she or he accept that the image couldn't be sold anymore for long time, and strange the image has not already withdrawn from market place.
in my opinion is a big error.

Can't be right.

15000 in rm world is a big big license...for some worldwide exclusive campaign for some years. doubt company buy this kind of image, knowing they are already sold in rf style. if they have that kind off budget they won't look at micro stock or 500px.

It's so clear, this was some kind of temporary bug and the question is not about the licences and prices. I can't understand why to spend the expensive time on discussing this topic.

The gist of the story:
"There appears to have been an error made in the processing of Payouts. Youve definitely made a sale, but this amount has been adjusted. In a rush to make our users happy over the holidays, Payouts were processed as US cents, and not US dollars (USD). We realize how severe of an error this is, and apologize for the inconvenience this has caused you. As a 500px user, we value your contributions to the photographic community, and especially the work that is submitted for licensing on the 500px Marketplace. Our developers have addressed the issue, and you can now request the Payout using the following information"

So a huge screwup with the decimal point. That is just awful. Sorry to everyone who had their Christmas ruined by this major snafu. 😞

Another batch of distributor sales was released (since Thursday). Seems to be over now.

No more "mega-sales", this time, lol.

Anyone else?
