April $.08
May $.16
June $.19
July $.19
August $.22

Since this subscription program is subject to their "multi-use" license https://about.canva.com/license-agreements/multi-use/ , I guess I will have to close my account until they implement an opt-out or minimum.  If they were still making what they did a year ago, that might be rough, but since it dropped 90%, it won't be too hard.  Sad, really.

Strange, I get exactly the same RPD numbers you quote, but for one month later, so from May to September.
There seems to be an error with assigning the correct month at Canva?

Those are the numbers I see in the same months as Sean - it appears that some of us see this incorrect menu drop down for months. What a fine development team they must have over there!

Now that I think about it, we'll all get the exact same numbers, since they just take all the money taken in and divide it by the number of downloads.

I don't have a September option.

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)

Reading indicates that we might "all" be replaced by agencies by free contributors in time leaving a small space for niche content creators? If one agency figured it out how to profit from free contributors, guess anyone will follow?

I didn't really follow what's happening at Canva. First look at the stats shows that my income dropped like 500% between March and June and stayed at that level.

Is that only my case or have others experienced the same?

It is no wonder that revenue drops when they invite customers to use over 1 million new free images.

My download numbers haven't dropped drastically but the earnings did due to the lack of multiple licenses (just a few a month).
I suppose more and more sales will be from the new subscription model once they start to market it heavily and maybe it will replace the current model completely which is sad.

It's amazing how all agencies thinks about digits, numbers, units, percentages and so on, like all photos are the same and worth nothing each individually. So sad...

Ok, so I guess that started around that time ?

If it helps for those considering closing their account, I disabled all of my photos before closing my account, but they still do residual sales for those pictures being used in templates.

So I re-opened my account (with my images still disabled) and found that all of my "pending cut out" images are able to be licensed now. Somehow when they flipped the switch that happened.

I suggest instead of closing your accounts, simply disable your images if you can and wait until they get a handle (if ever) on their contributor interface. Might save some hassle later.

The "free images" offer started in May 2019.

Has anybody else noticed their DL numbers randomly decrease in the new interface?

Last night when I made a final check of sales before calling it a day I had 100 dl's this morning I only have 98.

It happened once during the day yesterday when I seem to have lost a sale...

And I'm still having trouble reconciling my records with this month payment.

I may have just hit my frustration threshold with these clowns.

We made 323$ there in September! Thats way to little to ever ever ever be sustainable. I think we are gonna close the account this month.

I suggest all the people who have the guts follow along. Lets do the same thing we all did to Depositphotos - They ended up having an outdated library within 48hours when a lot of us with expensive portfolios deleted our pictures.

Every contributor counts here, and im sure most make so little that it doesn't matter anyway.

I already closed my Canva account in May. Unfortunately my portfolio on iStock is published on Canva. I will end up by making pennies on Canva through iStock  >:(

Anyone know if it is possible to opt out for Canva on iStock ?

We had a large portfolio on Canva but our earnings on Canva have fallen significantly since the end of last year. We dont like being forced into the unlimited subscription and having our images from Istock on Canva. Weve deleted our images on Canva and are trying to find out more from Istock, although the current response from Istock is that we are not able to opt out of them sending the images to Canva.

I noticed today. I have decrease with about 10 sales compared to 8 hours earlier (as numbers and as amount too). I'm traditionally positive about Canva, but now I'm already hesitant if all there is OK.
