They said they will pay the difference if you don't earn twice as much.

Yes, that's old news. I was asking what happens if they don't deliver the stats by May 15th, the deadline that they've set up for themselves.

I think we all know the answer to that - nothing will happen. We will wait until the next day and then the next day.

Why do they use the phrasing like "by May, 15th at the latest" if "at the latest" doesn't mean anything? Surely these agencies could be made accountable for their promises somehow?

I'd say let's give them the benefit of the doubt, we can complain after the 15th, if nothing happens.

Of course, I'm not complaining, I'm just asking in advance, "what if".

Specifically, if they are legally liable with statements such as those.

Well my earnings are there and they aren't twice as much. They are a few$ short of my total march earnings.

Same for me. My smallest brand almost doubled (from 530$ total to 980$). My main brand LOST 500$ (instead of doubling the income it got cut 500$). In the end I get almost as much as March... not close to doubling it.

Lets see now if Canva follow through their guarantee, which they should.

I sure hope that income increases over the month, would really love having the promised doubled income for more than 6 months. Well see.

Right now a bit disappointed but not surprised, I juste naively hoped Canva would be different than other agencies.

Same here. My total earnings aren't 2x of those from March.

Hopefully they are not done reporting and more will come.  So far for me it is only 64% of March so they have a long way to go if they are really going to guarantee 200%.  Plus in March the subs were at $0.27 per DL while in April with Photos Unlimited it is $0.05.  Hopefully more will come but a nickel a pop isn't going to get contributors very excited, and after the initial period it is going to be a huge decrease for us.  We will see what comes in over the next few days but so far it's looking like our expectations about another "exciting announcement" were warranted.  Hopefully the amounts are still being tallied.

Perhaps they are showing the actual sales, and the adjustment will come as the PayPal payment.

My earnings are almost the same as March, but the downloads have increased by over 500%. That's very worrying, even if they are prepared to double my earnings for 6 months. Frankly, they are only putting the earnings back to where they were before they screwed us over introduced the original subscription package.

Subscription downloads have also been added. It was a great disappointment. It was not double my income. It's stagnant, plus if I calculate the value of an image, 0.046 cents comes out ...  >:(  :-[

Me too, stagnant earnings and less than 5c per sale.

This is a joke. When they started they roped us in by saying, "yes the payment per dl is slightly less than SS but our users can only use the image in one design and not outside the site" (even though one use is what most subscription dls are used for across all sites I am willing to bet) but okay, there's a discussion to be had there.

What's the justification for less than 5c per download?!

I have got a lot of more subscription sales, something like 5 - 7 times more than usual, but my total is not twice the sales of March as they promised.

What has come in is our sales numbers. What they have promised is that they will pay a minimum of double March earnings for the next sixth months, so they will be topping up the actual payout (if they were telling the truth).

It is clear they closely observed their fellow Australian agency, Envato, and their Envato Elements - the most damaging enterprise for stock photographers. With the introduction of a similar concept, Canva knew what was coming and they, therefore, offer the carrot of double your earnings (which I do not see yet) for 6 months on condition THAT YOU DO NOT REMOVE ANY ASSETS. That is the key because they know contributors will start removing their assets once they see that their assets are virtually given away for free.

I left Envato Elements and will likely leave Canva if this is the future trend. My prediction is that normal sales on Canva will completely disappear and be replaced by these Photos Unlimited subscription sales. This is exactly what happened with Envato PhotoDune. No more uploads in the meantime to Canva until there is more clarity on what will be the norm.  I will definitely not give away my images for $0.05.  >:(

My, my ..... The plot thickens. Did you notice that they have now removed the number of subscription sales from the earnings page? I guess they want to hide the true numbers about what contributors really earn per subscription download - an RPD of less than $0.05. My guess is they got a lot of angry messages.

How do you see the number of sub downloads please?

OMG this very, very bad indeed.

So much for transparency and hoping they were different from other agencies...

You can't anymore, they just deleted the information!!! It would have told you that you are getting less than 5c per download as others have reported here.

Canva I know you're lurking reading this. How about updating this page too while you're at it:

https://support.canva.com/contributors/contributor-faqs/managing-sales-and-payment/

Don't you think it is extremely misleading to give an example where the contributor would earn 50c per download under photos unlimited when the reality is more than 10X less
