Mine are so few that it's hardly noticeable  :)

I'm just a few dollars short of BME there btw. Good performance

I hit the wrong vote.  I hit over 30 and it should be over 20.  Don't know how to fix that. 

26%.  Including a .21 sale - is that a sub?

I don't know why you'd post this before the end of the month though. Still 2 business days to go.  Subs are likely low on the first half of the month too - buyers wouldn't have renewed till back from the holidays..

Edited:  duh, I voted LESS than 30.  That was correct.

I must be dumb but where do you find this information without clicking through every single image that sold this month to see how many times it sold.

You don't have to. On "My earnings" page in the column "last download"  you can see sale's date and the price. Every earning egal or less then $0.30 is subscription sale.

Yes but you can only see the last sale on the image you need to click on each image  to see any other sales that they have had this month

This is true.  You don't see each individual sale, just the last sale per picture which has been dl'd.

You can make a pretty reasonable estimate from this data however.  Of the last 22 image sales listed during January, only 2 have been sub.  So 11% is my vote.

Perhaps an equally good way to look at this is to simply divide earnings by sales to see how much one earns per sale at DT.  I'm running at $0.77 per sale this month, which is well above the average I earn at other companies.  Even places like Fotolia which do not offer subs still fall well short of this mark.

How are you doing with your DT monthly target Dan?

26 sales in January with 1 day to go.  That is a BME, and about 10 sales per month above my previous average.  So I'd say I am on track to get to 50 monthly dl's before the end of July.  Gotta keep uploading though...   ;)

Anybody else think that DanP68  is a double for Bruce Willis.  Everytime I see the avatar I think it's him, or are you using a Bruce Willis photo.  ;D

Dan your photo makes me think, "Bruce Willis does The Terminator".

By th way, can someone tell me how to figure all these formulas for comparisons, now that I finally have sales to report! Yeah!  Also, what is BME???

Thanks, Silly car buying all day long, Connie... OMG!  I just realised I could have been all over that dealership taking shots of people looking at cars, buying cars, signing their loan docks.... everything!  Just need my camera and model releases.  DARN! :'(

No really folks, it is a picture of Bruce Willis.  He is one of the default avatars on this site.   ;D

Connie,

BME refers to "Best Month Ever."  You will occasionally see BDE for "Best Day Ever" too.  The comparisons in this thread were basically to see how much in earnings each sale was generating at Dreamstime.  In other words, in my case, $20.10 / 26 sales = $0.77 per sale.

I now get quite a few subscription sales at DT and less credit but at 123 I am now getting more credit sales than subscription sales.

Too much... on 11 downloads, 9 subscription, all maximum size.
The subscriptions devalue our picture.
Despite having almost 1500 pictures more in my port, i earned more past year same period.

I'd be interested to know what everybody's average earning per download are on DT?  Mine is 1.25$ as I have quite a lot of higher level images.  This more than makes up for the subs as my average doesn't reach 1$ on any of the other sites I upload to.  Also every sub download I get brings that image nearer to a higher level so subs really don't bother me at all at DT.

It's averaging 70c/dld for me in the past months. In January however, it was a bit higher because of an EL.

25 %...

which suggests that a lot of the demand in the stock industry field comes from an occasional, per-credit buyer. I also think that these per-credit buyers won't change and become sub-buyers as it is a different kind of image consumer.

35% sub dl (20 of 58)
meager $ 0,12 RPI (monthly return per image in portfolio)
7,7% of microstock earnings in January (=position #5)

not impressing at all....

Thanks for .  It's as I thought  that even with subs the earnings per download aren't much different to most of the sites that don't do subs.

$.82 / image average at DT
based on my first 8 sales there ... 2 of those were sold for $ .30 each (sub sale)

Respectively here is how the distribution looked as I was keeping track:

 $.30   (2 dls)
 $.50   (3 dls)
 $1.00 (1 dls)
 $1.50 (1 dls)
 $2.00 (1 dls)

Also I got $5.00 that I'm not sure what it was for ... possibly the referral bounus or the editorial image thing ...

Subs are at 37% and increasing quickly. Oddly, January was the first month I started getting subs. Overall, my downloads are up but earnings are up and down. I'm not seeing a pattern of growth there.

I too have noticed an increase in subs sales, particularly in January.  The overall percentage is still small, but the trend appears to be climbing gently upwards.

I don't like subs at DT.  I accept that they add to sales and can push an image into a new level, but overall I suspect that they detract from normal credit sales.

BTW I have also noticed a slight increase in subs at StockXpert.

I haven't had enough sub sales in the past to pay much attention. That along with plenty of $1 and $2 sales have kept the average up there. For the last week, however, all sales have been subs or .50, with about 60% subs.

Anyone else seeing a jump in sub sales at DT?

I the last two weeks I am seeing a jump in sub sales. Shutterstock announced an increase in commissions due in May. Will be interesting to see the reaction of DT.
