Title: Canva "Good News"
Post by: Sean Locke Photography on November 06, 2018, 03:12
Now they want to give contributors a percentage of the "sales price", which of course translates to more royalties for you. :(
-------------
We’re writing to you to let you know about some changes that Canva is making to its contributor agreement. These changes come off the back of some exciting news - Canva has launched in China! We’ll be ramping up our operations there over the next several months. Once we’ve got the product up and running and have a strong customer base we’ll be launching our contributors’ images for licence. That means another huge market where your images can generate royalties.

We’ll also be changing our pricing model so we can charge our customers in their local currency. This will remove significant resistance to licence purchasing and translate to more royalties for you. Your royalty rate will still be 35% of the sale price in that jurisdiction, and your royalties will still be paid in USD.

...Once we’ve got the product up and running and have a strong customer base we’ll be launching our contributors’ images for licence....

So the product will initially not have contributors' images available? Just Getty's 37 million+ images?

Anything about how and when the conversion to USD from local currency will happen? I'm sure you recall several agencies playing games with currency conversion rates and timing...

Does this mean that they will decrease the sale price?

Why do they need to 'change their pricing model' for a simple conversion to another currency like CNY? Does China get lower prices than the rest of the world, and if so, why?

Haven't paid much attention to Canva in a while.  I just know that I could count on them for a pretty consistent $300/month, but so far November is on track to do about $100.  Not sure if this already reflects the "Good News" changes.  Exciting!  :(

When you have the words--"Exciting and China" in the same sentence you know your going to make a lot less  :-[

I guess, the good news is, you still get .35 for .90 sale. Bad news is, you still get .35 for 1.40 sale.

Hmm... it look like no need to put my portfolio there, I guess.

Has Canva ever has an explanation for how 35% of $1.40 equals 35 cents?  I've had a few of those lately and am not thrilled to see a 35-cent commission on a $1.40 sale.  Maybe they explained that somewhere but I can't find it.  New math is one thing but I'm pretty sure they never changed the rules of multiplication.

Someone else said it was for currencies other than the USD, I can't remember where that was posted though. I have also heard of .90 sales that also netted .35

That was me. They do not change the prices and commissions, there are just a new currencies which appears in our dashboard as $, but it's not USD. We have to wait the new contributors dashboard and there will all be visible correctly.
