This is unreal, especially when the revenue/DL is so low (subs on DT are at least decent, they can gain levels):

I'm not on DP but that looks almost identical to my FT sales.

I never had so many subs on any site, not even in a short period of time, but last few weeks are really bad at DP. And I never really had much cr sales. OTOH, I'm getting more and more credit sales at FT, most of them are 5+ credits

Welcome to microstock.  SS is largely subs, DT is around 50-60%% subs. ft has a bunch of subs, PD is nearly all subs, how is that complaint any different from these other sites?

DP had, and I think still is offering, a free one week subscription, with up to 5 dls per day, of any size, and including vectors. These free subscriptions may account for a lot of the subs sales.

Not really.  Subs seem to be the norm for PD, but  same cycles for everyone else.

Dont agree at all!  I have plenty of higher sales combined with subs. Anyway what do you expect?  you join a site that sell subs, you gonna get subs, I wouldnt mind 100 sub sales per day, would you? ;)

Indeed, they are largely subs, but not all subs. 50-60% is not the same as 95% or so. I haven't gotten a single sub at PD yet :s . This complaint is also different from any of these sites in volume and a big difference in the earnings sum. For instance, I get more sales in a day at SS that I did at DP in Feb, I get payed more for subs and as you mentioned they account for only 50-60%. How's that for a difference. Since photos tell more than 1000 words, here's my last DLS from FT and DT, a difference that really catches the eye:

Exactly, if the volume was good, I wouldn't mind at all (it still wouldn't be great though, at least if the sum wouldn't surpass at least a couple of top 4 sites)

Hi there!  well you gotta go to work buddy,  shoot and shoot, upload and upload, no peace for the wicked, as they say. Get yourself a large bottle of Scotch, sip it gently and be creative, failing that you can always resort to Tea and buttered scones. :D

all the best.

I do realize that. But I prefer Gin&tonic ;) . What's your ratio of credit vs subs at DP? (I know you've mentioned you get a lot of large sized credit sales) . Perhaps my content is not suitable for credit buyers from what ever reason at DP (but it's weird it's at all other sites at least to a larger degree) or my content has been pushed into this free sub plans since it's relatively fresh (I've only been there less than half a year)

Hi!

around 30/70,  a rough estimate.

at this moment its impossible and far from accurate to compare DP with DT, FT, 123RF etc.. they can be there one day but at this point they are a "nice" small agency, actually they seem strong comparing to tons of other small agencies, I would love to see many small agencies doing whatever they are doing, so I dont see much to complain, BUT yes subs and more subs, last month had 80 sales for 30$

I get a lot of subs at DP too, but I get more for them, and the volume of sales is quite high for a new site.  Of all the small/new sites I am on, they seem to be selling the best, so I am quite happy with them. 

Of course I would love to have more PPD and fewer subs, but as already stated, most of the sites that offer subs get a lot of sub sales, at least for me.
