My last 160 earnings was about 20% credits and 80% subs. I think it's better than year or two ago. But, DP is also most "look out" partner.

I will stop upload there now...

This place got the most "refund" for every high earning for me.

I recently got 3 video sales on DP...and normally I never get video sales there. All three were refunded within a day because of 'unauthorized credit card use'. At least, that's what they told me. I have to trust them on their word if they say the downloader's account was blocked and this person no longer has access to the file.

Just logged in to see I have a negative balance after payout request. So I guess my latest video sale got a refund as well.

If you have your images for sale in DP, you deserve to be ripped off and abused. We all know who these guys are, their methods and their ways of making business since long time ago. Knowing all these facts if you are willing to stay in DP you deserve everything they decide to do with you.

Who cares about levels, 0.30$ with green level compared to 0.31$ for bronze level for sub sale, I mean, why did they even bother with these levels.

ironic that a newbie knows more than people claiming newbies have no clue

The Shotshop scam was their most sleazy episode IMO.

Very brief summary is that they did a partnership with another site where the sales were up to 99 euros and the DP contributor was paid a subscription download royalty per sale. People who were opted out of partner deals had their work on Shotshop too - DP's explanation was that they weren't a partner but were using the API to make the purchase, so that was different. After the images were removed from Shotshop they came back again and were removed a second time after contributor outcry.

In some cases Shotshop images came back twice and had to be removed a third time! 

Plus, last years big royalty cut... especially sucked.  DP has the lowest average return per download of the 15 sites I license through.

Dropped them like a bad habit :D
Very low sales and my images were sold by dubious sites, using DP's API :p

I don't even want to think about those dreaded refunds ... like a nightmare.

Look into their very early days and the company they were built out of. Plenty of reading on that in this forum years back.

Also agree since royalty cut they are again the worst rpd. Below IS. Not sure how you don't know this? They have the worst reputation of any site.
