They are only doing what they can to compete with Shutterstock and Istockphoto.
They should however, give submitters the chance to remove their images without having to wait 6 months. The more of you who leave, the more those of us who stay make.  ;D

i am surprised at all the nay-sayers about dreamstime.  I thought they were viewed as one of the 'good' sites.  They still give 50% on their sales which rather generous compared to the other sites.  Subscription sales is probably not too different and like stockmaniac said, they are no doubt just trying to keep competitive.  With their new pricing structure I will probably be receiving more / sale than any other site.

I received my first subscription sale yesterday, but it was for 0.50!

Here are the specifics:

Download type: Member download
Image level: Level 2
Price: subscription
Earnings: $0.50
Resolution: maximum
License: (RF)

What gives?

I'm not complaining at all, but I thought that subscription sales were supposed to be 0.25

Do higher levels receive higher subscription earnings?

Things a little slow at DT for me right now. No 0.25 sale yet though.

DT is doing fine for me this month.  No 25c yet.  One exclusive image which was upgraded to level 2 got me US$3.  On average, I'm getting US$1 per dld.  Still, I think it's early to say how the subscription model will work.  I truly fear the subscription will be much cost effective for buyers and they will migrate to it.

Adelaide

In all fairness to DT, my revenue per image has increased by 20 cents so far this month.  I did disable all of my RAW files and my extended licenses though. 

From here on out, it's only regular RF sales for me unless something changes that doesn't allow subscription purchases to buy RAW files or extended licenses at regular prices.

I've been having a good month with DT so far.  I expect we won't see subscription sales immediately until everyone runs out of credits.  Time will tell!

I think I finally figured it out.  It seems that there are also "old" subscription credits lying around.  If a buyer bought a subscription package under the old system, then you will receive 0.50 as a non-exclusive (or 0.60 as an exclusive) for a sale.  If a buyer buys a new subsription package, then you will receive 0.25 as a non-exclusive (or 0.30 as an exclusive) for a sale.

My average sales per dl is up to 0.94 in March, up from 0.83 in February and 0.87 in January. Average since May last year is 0.79, so it's certainly going in the right direction  :D

the amount will compensate for it!

I have been checking my sales and nearly each of them was with old credits.  I think it will take a while before we will see the real trend.  So far it's been good to me, especially with the level upgrade.

I got my first subscription sale from dt yesterday, Frankly I do so little there it seems like it isn't worth it to be there. The subscription model works well at SS because of volume, DT doesn't generate(at least for me) the kind of views nor downloads required to keep me interested in contributing. Of course I have a very small port there, so maybe i just need to relax a little and not worry,but I just feel that the sub. is a poor fit for that site.

The sub. with 25c just started, you should give it some time, and I am sure, there will be more sales :) The good thing about DT is, you do not have to upload constantly to keep your sales at a high level as you have to do with SS.

i had first 025 on friday. my flags are on the half of the spear  :-[ ....

Yay, I got one too, thats 25 cents more than I would have normally got  I guess.  :D
I am happy, because my thinking is, that people who bought that subscription will dld more images than usual. So I most probably didn't get that dl if it wasn't because of the subscription. Hopefully they increase :-)

I'm not too worried about those 0.25 sales. There's a reason why SS is the biggest earner for most of us. A lot of sales can only be a good thing.... I hope  ::)

Got one today...  Ok, so far not bad, earnings are doing fine, but what will happen when people run out of old credits?
