For February my "applies" are up 24% and "exports" are up 18%. We shall see if that translates to any increase in earnings when they report that later this month.

At least in my case it did not. The three bigger spikes are in February. Applied +51 and exports +17 when compared to the previous month. In January I made $ 874 and in February $ 887. So that's almost the same despite the increase in applies and exports.
For now the dashboard seems pretty useless when it comes to predicting income.

May I ask where to view this statistic? I can only find earnings for royalties and individual sales, but nothing that gives me an indication as to how many times an images has been applied or exported.

Go to https://www.canva.com/creators/element and click on dashboard.

go to

https://www.canva.com/creators/element

and then select "dashboard" somewhere in the middle upper section of the page, and then you can select one of their selected time periods on the right side where it says "filter page by"

It looks like Feb earnings are posted, and although applies were up 24% and exports were up 18% actual $ earnings were only up .57% and total $ earnings actually went down because I had more individual sales in January (which gives you an idea of how small the Elements earning increase was since individual sales are in the single digits these months.)

So, an awful lot of sales for not much $ for us and basically earnings continue to fall despite the customers getting fat at the all you can eat buffet.

Does anyone know what "applies" and "exports" really mean? Danny?

My sales were also shown as up about 24% in February, but unfortunately my total earnings for the month were down about 1%.  The money divided into total sales produces pay per download as a very small number, about $0.006 per sale.

I like Canva, but it sure feels and looks like we are being screwed.

February "Applies" and "Exports" all up on last period (I assume January) but income down. Way down on last year's February. Even worse than my most pessimistic placeholder figure for the month. I believe Canva is devastating to my income in the long term. They have captured a huge part of the market and are now turning the screws on suppliers.

I believe that at least a few buyers from the hundreds of thousands licensing my work from Canva would have licensed them elsewhere if Canva didnt exist. Backed up by my corresponding decrease in volumes elsewhere, The return per sale is so low it would only take a handful every few thousand to make me more money.

I feel theres been a real bait and switch. I had the conversations when they were new and trying to get our work. They were saying the 27c or 25c they were offering for subscription sales then wasnt as bad as it sounded. Even if it was less than the 38c elsewhere, it was okay as it was a different product and buyers would not be able to use the images outside of Canva.

Then with the new scheme it was (paraphrasing) it may be low RPD, but you will share in our success, we will fairly split revenue with you and your income will grow with us. Well my volume is still going up, I am making content their customers want and selling more, yet my income continues to go down as they spread the pot to ever more people outside the original scope of the agreement. We are getting approximately 10X less per sale than we were even at the beginning of this scheme, judging by the figures the last time they briefly let us see them.

?? if your images weren't on canva, why do you think they'd find those images elsewhere among millions of other images unless your images were truly unique

Agreed. My statement was about Canva's impact on the market in general (and therefore my income too). I'm trapped on Canva just like everyone as they have swallowed up such a huge slice of the market and now can, and are, squeezing us. Hence "if Canva didn't exist", not "if I wasn't selling on Canva".
