Here's what I got:

"Thanks for taking the time to respond, I hope I can help answer all of your questions.

Could you please provide more detail of the financial side of this planned new offering?

    Revenue will be calculated based on the subscriber share model, which means that we distribute 50% of revenue to contributors shared based on the number of sales made by each photographer.

How much will customers pay, how much will contributors earn per image downloaded?

    Users will pay $12.95/month. The exact amount the contributor will earn per image will depend on the number of downloads - we'll have a better idea of this after launch.

What kind of license will be given to the customer?

    The license will be a simple single-seat, non-transferrable RF license.

And, most important, will you provide an opt out possibility? Or will deletion of my account be the only way to avoid being part of such a deal?

    You can opt-out at any point Dirk, however we're really banking on this being a success so I'd highly recommend you stay in until after launch, see how your sales revenue is performing, and if you're not happy then opt-out any time after that. I'd love to have you as a part of launch, we love your work!"

Nothing about opting out would mean effectively disabling the portfolio.
I responded asking to opt me out.

Here is the answer I got:

Thanks for getting in touch and sorry to hear you don't want to be a part of this subscription.

I can take you off the list no problems, and your images will ceae to appear anywhere in Canva. However would you rather see how your sales go in the first month and make a decision after? You can opt out at any stage.

Let me know what you think :)

Here's a quote I got from them:

How much are you getting for this unlimited service?
The subscription is technically 'unlimited' however we've put measures in place to avoid subscribers abusing the subscription, and we'll investigate any account that registers over 250 downloads in a single 30 day period. Also, from various experiments we've run we've found the monthly number of downloads to be extremely low.

So if the tests they ran show DL's to be extremely low - What's the point of doing this?

And they'll investigate abusers - that makes me feel so much better :-\

A: if it is limited to 250, why lie about that?
B: Nothing about opting out would mean effectively disabling the portfolio. This is not at all what the rest of us got.  Which I assume is misleading wording about how you can never remove all your work because it will still remain in buyers projects.  But it wont now be searchable.

So Canva is reducing itself to cheating on buyers or lying to us about it, and blackmailing contributors? Nice going Canva. You are ruining everything you've build and worked for in the past years. Unless somebody is pointing gun to your head and forcing you to shoot us and yourself in the foot, there are no excuses for all of your "decisions" - they are both stupid and unethical.

At 250 sales/month (which I don't know how they will limit it to that, but that is another story) we would get 0.0259 per sale. There would have to be around 18 sub sales per month for us to get the 0.35 we get now.

I'm out of this nonsense!
Requesting opt-out! I don't care about Canva at all anymore!

Response to my wth inquiry.

The only numbers I can get to you are the 50-50 revenue share, because given that we haven't launched yet I don't know the total pool of revenue that we'll be working with. Apologies.

In regards to opting out, yet this is correct, the images will no longer be available in our library.

So, yes, opting out is closing your account.
