I normally don't monitor this very carefully, but I noticed I had a couple subs sales that I got $.30 for. I thought the minimum was $.35. Has this happened to anybody else?

I thought the minimum was 33c...Not that it really makes any difference with the low volume I've been getting lately

No...but I did have a 3 credit sale for 45 cents, or 15 cents per credit.

I think the partner's share of sales is deducted from your commission.  I've had several at 32 cents.  Not familiar with 30 cent sales.
But ... DT always has an explanation.   :P

I am more concerned that I have the same number of views but not a single sale for days!

Stop worrying, it's a sinking ship for everyone but big timers (according to this week's reports). So business as usual ;)

That seems like a logical explanation. I guess I'll have to ask them to see what they say.

DT - and IS, and others as well - keep ratcheting down the subscription comissions, hiding behind increasingly convoluted cr@p like "old credits".  The reality is that in the subscription model there's no direct relationship between what a buyer pays and what the contributor gets.   The payment to the contributor isn't even a "commission", it's basically a token.  They've slipped in so many exceptions and layers of indirection in subscription pricing that it's not possible to know if your payment for a particulare download is even correct.   It could be 3 cents, and if you asked DT about it, they'd have some crazy explanation, and you'd have no way to contest it.
