Just added for the last missing words.  :)

I'm not a member but they keep writing to me. I changed my mind and now upload to DP through Wirestock.

There would be a lot more happy contributors, although I have not been invited to the program.

I assumed everyone had got invited. Can't be on performance... I got invited with my one sale in the last five years or so! Have you checked your spam folder?

Everyone did, maybe OP's didn't get through for whatever reason? I just got the new one becuase I didn't sign up last (and wont be doing it now either, even with the ancient images of mine DP still has)

Has anyone done this and can report tangible results, good or bad?

I'm suspicious of anyone who has a "better deal" for me.

Especially in this industry.

Do a search on the forum for deposit photos, especially from when they appeared on the scene and the time the guys from the Russian forum did test purchases to see if DP was accurately reportimg sales.

I assume the offer is attached to an "unlimited" download plan.  I am out.

Opt out for sure - While we can! I fear that at some point it won't be optional anymore. Then would be the time when I would delete my port there.
Unlimited download is the next big step in ruining this industry for contributors and Depositephotos has never earned me enough money to be part of it.
Preferable I would like not to be part in any step to ruin the industry, but it's not so simple to walk away from an agency that is paying  like 1/3 of your living expenses, because you depend on the income, but Depositphotos is no such agency for me and looking at the Microstock Poll results, not really for anyone.

I just wanted to quote the whole thing. I know it was a phone kind of typo.

For those asking, I got the email and I don't have a DP account. I'd guess that everyone was supposed to get it?  :)

I'm safe. I wonder what would happen if I click the button? Hmmmm? Do I get a share of the revenue for having no account?  :o

I just got a reply from the customer support:

[Translated with  deepL.com]
I have been informed that the program is still in the development stage. Therefore, it is not yet active with customers.
The achieved sales from this program, as well as the status of the participant of this program, will also be seen later in the account. We will inform you additionally as soon as we know more.


Good to know, you can see the status and the sales of the program in your account settings, as soon as it is online.

Thank you very much for sharing your response. For some reason for this month I can see on the Stats page a 1 in the revenue share row at the bottom, and a small amount in there as well. Maybe testing? Not sure.

So, it sounds like they wanted people to commit to it without any details.  Sign the dotted line and we'll tell you later what your prize is!!
