Say what you want...it's called "checks and balances". If the map is reporting sales and the summary isn't then there is a problem somewhere. I've got image sales indicated on the map and not the summary and that my friends is an issue....checks and balances! I'm sure it will be fixed in due time....they always do.

The map was never meant to be a check and balance...it was meant as a general idea of sales and a fun widget. You guys are the ones who are claiming that the map should be correct and match exactly with your sales summary. As far as I know, Shutterstock has never said that. Show me on the site where they claim that the map matches exactly, and I will shut my piehole. :-)

They don't have to say, that map matches sales.

But in 2.5 years, not once did it happen, that map would show a sale (or whatever) and it wouldn't show in earning summary. And besides, if it happens to many people, there's obviously sth. wrong with it.

Now you can shut your piehole.

That's exactly the way I've seen it too, ever since they first introduced the map. Now, the two don't match. Who knows which is right?

See post 3 and 4. Or ask Vincent. Or someone else at Shutterstock. My piehole remains open, and I will NEVER shut it because YOU tell me to, Dumc.  ;)

Vincent had said previously that the map is not 100% accurate, so I wouldn't put to much accuracy in the locations on it.

This topic is about accuracy of sales locations, not about map sales matching earning summary.

Then, after this we don't know what is what, and what is more accurate. Why they even put map on site if it's just for fun? We are not playing here!!! What the map showing if it's not where they bought it?

Get that script from the SS forum and you will see a lot of downloads coming from Potwin, Kansas, from a farm in the middle of nowhere.

That place is the IP center of USA. A lot of sales have no other indication but an IP originating from USA. And then those sales will be assigned to that (unlucky) farmer.

I can also locate sales in the IP center Germany (some forest, with no farmer to be harrased), IP center of New Jersey, etc.

I didn't say that it have to be accurate. But it's have to be number of sales 100% accurate

I'm not talking about location accuracy. I'm talking about files showing on a map, but not in earning summary. I had 2 of those today. I'm contributing about 2.5 years, and every single file (as far as I know) in those 2.5 years that showed on a map was then also reported on earning summary page.

And since I see, I'm not the only one, having these problems, it's obvious that something is wrong here.

Most of my video downloads are doubled. Even before these map glitches I systematically got double video downloads. Probably because the clip doesn't go through during the first attempt and the customer is allowed to retry to get what was already paid for.
You don't see these doubles on the map, since they overlap on the same location. By using that script, you will notice a minor time stamp difference between the doubles.
The same thing might be valid for photos: retries.
Just my two cents.

Forget about the script. I'm not talking about doubles, I'm talking about files, showing up on a map, but not on my earnings page.

For example: http://www.shutterstock.com/pic.mhtml?id=474325915

This file is showing on a map since morning , but when I go to "Earning Summary" page, it's not there (evening now). And there is another file like that, it's on a map but not in earnings page.

Can't it be a retry? Something previously purchased?

Nope, it's online only for a few days and hasn't been sold before...

I send mail to SS team right now:

Dear Shutterstock team,

I was very happy to see that map was back again, but yesterday afternoon I noticed that some of my images appeared on the "Latest Downloads map", but they are not reported in my "Earnings Summary". Yesterday there was one photo and today there are until now seven (7) photos, which appeared on the Latest Downloads map, but not reported on my Earnings Summary.

Here are Ids of this:
.....
.....

Could you please check why this images appeared on the Latest Downloads map today, but not reported on my Earnings Summary?

So, basically, 2 sales are missing. Maybe they're two EL's or large SODs :) , who knows.
