Hello 


I have some questions about my earnings.


First of all I think we don't get the whole price (which is decided by istockphoto) of a photograph we have uploaded to the site but just a percentage of it. For example a photo I have uploaded was download by someone in size large, the price is 19 dolars but I get 2.40 dolars. So they give us a percentage of the actual price. Is this correct?


My second question is that two days ago I found out that my total earnings became 2.96 instead of 2.40 but there is no new download. How can this happen? Do they give monthly interests or something like that?

Of course. You get the royalty percentage listed on your profile page, which is 15% for you.

No. You probably had a sale in the Partner Program.

You really need to do some reading.

First of all the price shown on you image detail page is only if the buyer pays with a Credit Card. You will find that most of you downloads are paid with Credits. Those credits can vary is price, see HERE for some of the pricing.


As for the other increase that is probably due to the Partner Program that just got done paying out for October. Go to your stats page and look at the October stats for green bars.
