I was just looking at my sales at Dreamstime and all the recent sales either quote   x credits (2008) or subscription. Why would I not have any 2009 credit sales ? Does anybody have (2009) credit sales on Dreamstime ?

Last 20 sales: 11 subscription, 9 2008 credit sales. No 2009 credit sales. Digged deeper (last 120 sales): no 2009 credit sales at all.

I noticed this a few months ago, and came up with my own explanation (which might be entirely wrong).

Prices haven't changed since 2008, so even credits purchased in 2009 are labeled as "credits (2008)".

Anyone agree?  ;D

Thats what I thought but I'll have to check back through the pages and pages of subscriptions to find a credit sale.   ;)

I don't know for sure, but I think there was no change to credits between 2008 and 2009.  It think the 2008 credits are the current ones.

Probably the "2008" credits refers to the credit plan, not the year they were purchased.

I am cutting and pasting this exchange between Achilles and Tonyger from a thread on DT:

TONYGER:
sorted now but i'm very confused and quite angry about an EL sale i got!

An image bought at 50 credits would have given me $25 in the past.
Yesterday an image bought at 50 credits only netted me $16.62.

How can it be that I lose $8.38 on a sale that costs the buyer the same amount?

I'm not happy about this!

:-( 


ACHILLES responded:

You used to get even up to 80% in real percentage. The client didn't pay $50 for the 50 credits. But let's not get off topic.

The exchange was in a thread about a system problem:

I was anxious to hear more but, as usual, a controversial subject was "nipped in the bud."  Whatever is happening, my RPD has dropped continuously.  It is 44 cents for this month.  May be because I can't keep my mouth shut?   :P

You are probably right.

Achilles deserves the annual prize for the "man who never responds the question"
Tonyger asked why he got only 33% and Achilles talk about 80% of what? Never see 80% commission at DT.

I just made a new low: I had one image purchased with "1 credit (old)", it made me a whopping $0.15 Ca-ching!

The 2010 credits on the other hand are quite nice. So far this year my RPD is 3,77 $ on DT.

Sounds like iStock for me. I've had so many tiny credit sales lately that subscription sales would pay better on there for me!
