I have more than 10K images there and I was in around top 30 in Canva before the drop last year. I don't see any of this subscription sales.

Hey Deyan, please see my last reply.

You will see subscription sales in the new interface, which is rolling out by next Monday. I can confirm you have subscription sales. Sorry that it's not showing up on the old dashboard.

Thanks Danny, I'll expect it.

I send e-mail to close my account because this will kill my other agencies income.

I just found out very recently. I have also sent to close my account. We should boycott these agencies. Shutter and fotolia should give a warning not to support images from sites with unlimited subscription. Stockphoto is not Netflix or Spotify

I'm not either. It is probably Wednesday in Australia.

Hi Danny,

Did I miss an email or notice? All the images I had that are "pending cut-out" since you opened are actually up for sale without being cut-out. Has the policy on that changed? I was told there "was no way" those files could be changed.

"next Monday".... is actually a public holiday in Australia (or at least, in NSW where Canva is HQ'd).

Look when he wrote that - his next Monday was 6 days ago.

They are definitely liars. I remember not long ago the deactivation of fotolia files when they created the dollar Photo Club.

Anyone who sells their entire portfolio for $ 12 is an idiot auction that only deserves to be downloaded by a pirate and resold.

The idea has always been 'single USE' within a Canva production. That is, the full res image was not actually downloaded to the client. Has that changed? Can people actually download for future use - in anything?

I can finally see the new interface - looks great!  Subscription sales have ranged from around $0.08 to $0.22 per DL so that part is not very impressive for contributors.  But thanks for the new improved interface - it is much improved.

Well I am finally seeing the new dashboard -

April my Subs got me $1.27 (15 dl's @ 0.084 per image)
May $4.38. (27 dl's @ 0.1622 per image)
June $10.12 (52 dl's @ 0.1946 per image)
July $12.68 (67 dl's @ 0.1907 per image)

What a great deal for us - so makes up for the hundreds of dollars I'm down each month since the Getty deal and free images started, >:(

I can see the new dashboard too. It looks good.

It might look good, BUT when I click on August - it shows the sales from Sept and April down below (that is the date of sales reported anyway).

For July is shows August, Sept, May, March, and April sales. plus the dates jump around and repeat as I scroll down.


 I am curious what images are popular for the all you can eat buffet. A quick look seems that the subs average around .19 each. It would be nice to see what images sold and what I made from each sale. I bet there are some crazy low ones and some that are pretty big, but I have no way of really knowing.

Easy changes they could make - show the number of subs sales for the current month.

not so easy changes - show the actual sub sales and amounts

easy or not - show the sales for the selected month in chronological order.

When I click on "Payments" I still only see my earnings from my normal sales. The subscription sales are not reflected under "unpaid earnings", nor under "all time earnings". How are we being paid for these subscription earnings? Are they separate from the normal sales?

Also, I am really not impressed with the low RPD of the subscription sales. Very disappointing. Competition with IS to see how low an agency can go. I bet if we accept this devaluation of our images it will not be long before the other agencies follow.

Let we be honest, this is only in May by my opinion. Each month after May have average 0.20 USD on subscriptions which is not much but not 0.08

June: 0.15
July  0.21
August: 0.21

But in long term is not imposible be worst

But...Who will want to buy my photos in creative market, shutter or adobe if they have part of my portfolio for 12 dollars?( i have here 20% of my microstock images)

For me this income is garbage. I have a niche and I'm going to take it out of canva. (I've already taken it out manually)

I did an in-depth analysis of my first Canva Photos Unlimited earnings and sales in my blog:
https://www.alltageinesfotoproduzenten.de/2019/10/09/canva-unlimited-ernuechternde-analyse-der-ersten-umsaetze/
(it's German, but should translate well with Google Translate)

This Unlimited Subs Plan is much worse than Dollar Photo Club and I'm surprised I don't see an avalanche of angry comment from contributors.
I'm glad they have only a small fraction of my portfolio and it will be relatively easy for me to delete it.

Great analysis Robert. How confident are you in the results you see in the Sales page though - whenever I click to a new month (and September 2019 isn't there in the drop down) I see different figures and image sales for multiple different months in the details.

The interface seems to be really screwed up in terms of what it is showing and the figures don't match what I have been putting into my spreadsheets each month using the older interface.

In my Canva account "September 2019" is shown in the dropdown, see screenshot attached.
The numbers from Canva are off compared to my excel sheet as well, but only to a maximum of about 2-3 USD, so that might be "refused credit cards" or so.
