So, I have finally reached 100$ for payment. At least that's what it says on the front page (earning balance). But when I go to account statistics, total sum is 98.85$. Anyone knows, why this difference?

Maybe some of it is referral income and you need to wait a certain time for it to be payable? I often forget to request my earnings there, wish it was automatic like the others. You could send them a message and ask.

I don't have any referral earnings. I guess I'll have to investigate.

Maybe it's because of taxes or something, or are reported sales already stripped of tax?

DT is nearly 100% subs for me now, The only time I am really happy to see that a sale there is a sub is when it is a "level 0" sale. The credit sales are nice, but almost like ODD or EL at SS now. I am getting a fair number of $2 subs now, but I think those are "pseudo subs" - where they sell some sort of image pack or something and pretend it is a sub - at least they pay over the .35 for it. It was nice when the higher level files also yielded more for subs sales.

According to the quarterly earnings graph they have bounced around a bit but in general been flat curving to a downward trend since 2011 for me. At that time they were about = to IS with double the files and 30% of SS with a similar # of files.

DT was the only agency down, May, 2014 -to-May, 2015 , in purchases. The other five were up-way up. 28% up on average on number of purchases and 38% up on revenue. Is that DT's fault? I doubt it. Things shift over time. When I started 4 years ago DT was consistently my top agency. And I bet two or three years down the road I could be saying the same thing again.

Well it's that bad for me sales are going backwards. I have had $65 in my account for ages and then it goes up to $66. Then it has gone back to $65. What on earth is going on with DT ?  >:(

DT is about the only site where I can steadily grow my earning by uploading. Their tiered pricing based on popularity of an image is a great idea. I wish the other sites would take it on too, it would mean more cash for everyone.
They used to pay 50% for all sales, then they changed to the tiered system which pays between 25 and 45%.  This tiered system is paying you 10-50% less than they used to.

DT has simply never grown for me. It performes on a seasaw downward trend. All i have is photos there, i do not provide them videos due to their crummy commissions and pricing.

Yes i think DT is dying. Last quarter i had a lower revenue than my first quarter on DT 5 years ago with a portfolio now that is 25 times bigger than then.

Thanks....In my experience it will come to an end and restart again  :o at some unspecified time in the future.

My last year of good earnings was 2010, in the years after that earnings shrunk by about 50%.

they should really lower their payout threshold to $50

it would be in line withother agencies esp seeing they dont have volume sales

Absolutely dead. Still no sales and still annoyed they deducted some of my earnings for some unknown reason. Since joined Fotolia I have already had loads of sales. Note to self: do not upload anymore images to DT.

Stopped uploading there a month ago after having my worst month ever (after 9 years of membership and a growing portfolio).
Actually i already sold 5 (five) files this month ... but to conclude: there is no more motivation for me to upload new work.
May be this will change somehow in the future but for now i am done with DT  :(

I'm having mostly credits sales. Not much though, but they are regular. And this month is my second best month at the moment.

They are hanging in there for me.  Mostly subs these days but many are for $2 and enough credit sales to keep them in the top 4 or 5..  Definitely not dying.

Dropped off a cliff for me after a good run since late last year. They've never been consistent for me from month to month, but if I look at my average monthly earnings year over year they are actually within a few dollars since 2013 - though my portfolio has grown since then in order to keep up.

They are accepting a lot more files even more similars than in the past.

At least SS rebounded this month.
