Strange, I had an image that sold last Thursday for 4 credits (medium) and I earned $1.11, and today it sold again for 4 credits (medium) and I earned $1.16.

Is there escalations or is this a fluke?    ???

Contributors' payments are based on the amount per credit that the specific buyer paid, so yes it fluctuates.

Yeah, royalties fluctuate a lot there. I'm just happy when it is above a dollar.  :)

Isn't that so at IS also?

for 2010 credits the variation is:

maximum cost is 1.25/credit - max return 50% = .62 per credit

minimum cost is .77/credit, min return  30% = .23 per credit

(for independent)

older credits may be worth more or less.

for subs packages the return varies from .35 to 1.05 and the cheapest the buyers could get the images are about .20 per image. The most expensive for maxing out a subscription is around .43 per image. Obviously if all of the subs are not used DT makes a lot more.

What was once a rewarding, easy to understand system has become a huge bucket of worms.  I really think the customers who are not confused by the complexity have learned to take a huge advantage of Dreamstime and its contributors. 

Paying 35 cents for maximum sizes is disheartening.  Why use credit sales when everything is so cheap for subscriptions?   :'(
