I asked again in dt forums and Achilles answered that we would have to ask Myspace where it is and that it is not available as yet to all users.

I don't really see these questions in our forum, but would gladly respond.
I'm afraid tat you have missed these questions in this forum too. I can help you. The questions from Phil are just above your post. ;D

created a myspace account, cant find it anywhere just dozens of send free ecard stuff
seems to be the program of mystery. somewhere in the deep recesses of myspace lays a card marking program where some people can buy cards...

Rene, are these questions on our forum? Of course I've seen them here, hence my reply. Do you think sarcasm is needed if I mised one of them?

Thankyou Achilles for coming back and answering questions.  I too had missed the pricing in your previous post.

Sorry but $0.06 on a card worth a few dollars is between 2% and 3% commission. On pure principle I do not wish to be involved in any program that pays the artist 2-3%.

(You mentioned on DT forum that it is around 50% of DT's share if so then Dt get around $0.12 or 5%??.  I dont feel this is high enough. I looked around and didnt find anywhere that paid less than 10% commission.  zazzle is around $0.30 and greetingcarduniverse $0.56 on a $2.79 card (for small numbers drops as order size grows as the card price drops).

sorry seems extremely unimpressive. I also must say I dislike the way it was initially presented as well.  It made me distrustful as soon as I saw it last week and feel it was used car sales tactics of smoke and mirrors to hide facts.

Yeah, I just opted mine out as well. That does seem like a pretty low royalty and all the mystery around the program doesn't really help either. I'll wait until we get all the details and then make a decision instead of the other way around.

unfortunately it is opt out of all partner programs, and I dont know how to tell what this is worth. I have asked for the option to opt out of just this program but dont know what the chances will be.

Hi, once again thankyou Achilles.

I didnt wish to imply you were being dishonest when saying artist is getting 50% of  DT's share. rereading my post I see it comes across this way and for that I apologise.

re Mystery - it isnt possible to find except for certain people, searching myspace turned up nothing.  The way it was presented was in comparison to the p-el licence but little actual figures. (and I missed the sale price your previous post here)

Personally I would have been happier if it was presented along the lines we have created a partner program with myspace etc  Dreamstime gets 5% of the sale of which artists get 50% which is $0.06, we would have liked more but this is high volume sales etc.  But you know your artists better than I and maybe I am in the minority for rather having it this way (I've come across a number of bad deals at artists expense in past 6-12 months (not by DT :)) and maybe I am just getting sensitive to how things are presented)

I think it is disapointing how little DT managed to get when comparing to similar priced cards, but thats easy to say when you are not part of the negotiations :)  Anyway I will wait and see how it turns out.

thanks again
Phil

I didn't mean to be insulting either and I definitely appreciate the time you take to answer our questions. As far as the mystery, I think Phil covered that. I was really hoping to see the program in action. Check it all out with my own eyes and maybe even order a card.

Thank you for providing the clear numbers. I don't think they are so bad, considering the price of postage and printing. I have never tried any of the other card printing buisnesses, but I kind of think comparing with those is like comparing micro and macro.

But hey, what do I know, I have none of these sales. Hoping to get some, though.

What smoke and mirrors?  We don't sell used car sales . You must mean the DT rank game, a good diversion , no?  What next?  Dating Services ?  That will be cool !  We get credits to pick up women, or men instead of cash !  ( Outright sacarsm here Achilles!)
