Probably Due To Network Congestion

This is news to me, its the first sale I’ve had marked like this  “Credit for Photo Sale by reseller”…
Could this be how the Fotolia Free API works??
The Pics below:

Fotolia Sale by Reseller

http://futureworks.co.kr a Fotolia Reseller in Korea, is a Flash website, but I couldn’t spot how to purchase images.

The recent Fotolia new letter:
“COMING SOON: FOTOLIA’S FREE CONTENT API

The first website based on the Fotolia’s free content API will soon be released! The site will drive traffic to Fotolia and is a fantastic opportunity for Fotolia’s contributors to get additional visibility amongst stock photography buyers.

Fotolia’s extensive API infrastructure (partner, Business, Developer and Reseller) has already shown their capacities in driving qualified traffic on the Fotolia website. We’re confident that this new API will do the same.

As a backgrounder, Fotolia’s free content API is based on free contents and unsold files. This API will be used by Fotolia to attract more stock imagery users and to invite them to buy additional imagery on Fotolia. That means: more traffic, more buyers and more sales. As you already know, you can add your unsold files to this program and get a half credit for each file added. Your file will be still offered on Fotolia.com at the standard price, while at the same time, being offered for free through the API.”

I like the way this site works, its pretty sensible and works logically, the upload procedure works well and editing image details is simple.
This is how the profile page looks, Its pretty concise and usable:

The Image portfolio page is just as easy with albums for organisation that work by drag and drop, and looks like this:

I have just completed uploading my portfolio of 1324 images, all accepted due to there being no inspection procedure to go through (the closest acceptance to that was 979 images at CanStockPhoto).

Earnings and referrals
Royalty-free images: earn 50% of the total price, which is €12.50 per sale.
“We offer you 1 Euro for every sold image by a referred photographer and an additional 1 Euro
for every image bought by a referred customer. This means you can earn up to 2 Euro every time a transaction is made between your referred friends”

All there is to do now is organise a few albums and site back and wait…. we shall see!
