I wonder if this is why I suddenly earned $30 today without any sales to show for it.

Karimala,

According to what Achilles said, no payments have been done on this program.  It seems you have something else happening on your side.

It sounds like we might have a few $'s coming our way. Hope so!

Karimala __ Earnings for this aren't coming out until next week according to the announcement. There are appears to be another delay on standard sales showing up.

6 cents.   People, listen to yourselves.  6 cents for an image suitable for a greeting card. 

It's the Microstock Death March.  Next stop, zero.

No. That 6 cents means you will get $600 instead of $25 for the same sale.
We can live with that.

Yes...I know...I read that, too.  But I couldn't help and wonder if maybe they were getting a head start.  It's not every day $30 mysteriously ends up in your account!   ;)

It's 6 cents per print, not per image.  As I said before, I would like to know how much they charge for the print.

Unless someone is sending out Christmas cards or graduation announcements, or party invitations - it's 6 cents.

I had that today aswell - but it wasn't $30, it was $0.4!  :D
That seems to have happened at DT before, last time the sale was visible in the list of downloaded files next day.

You would have to go and make sense. I hate when that happens..

I think I got one of these partner sales. I received this email this morning:

We're pleased to let you know that one or more of your files was sold via offline means.
The content was used on one of the partner sites announced in the consumer-oriented alliance:

I got one of those today too for $6.70.  Very nice little bonus.  Hope they accelerate :D

It's good to see that that the royalties are more than a few pennies. Does anybody know how to track these earnings in our stats?

It depends on how much they sold the image use for.  If someone purchased a U$100 canvas print, US$6 is not much.

They never clearly explain their earning system. $1.09 for what? 18.16 post cards ($1.09/0.06)?
They have to pay for every word in the email?

I must have missed this announcement, I see it was months ago. 

I think I'm getting too cynical with new stuff the agencies do. There really isnt a lot of information given and for some reason the announcement just jumps out at me as sales / marketing speak with build up a little bit of info but ignore all the details (and bad parts).  In particular nowhere has it been mentioned what these cards sell for? anyone know?

Just getting that feeling that we are being screwed yet again, hopefully I'm wrong.

$0.06 cents concerns me, somehow I think these cards are more than $0.20-$0.30

and fair enough there is the cost of printing but greetingcarduniverse.com (anyone use them) can pay $0.56 on a $2.79 card

If someone here has a MySpace account, probably he has access to the prices charged there?

However, it will not be easy to correlate earnings in DT with sales price in MS, if I understood it right.  You can not say if the $1.09 refers to selling one, ten or 100 cards.

seems to be the program of mystery. somewhere in the deep recesses of myspace lays a card marking program where some people can buy cards...

no response on DT forums as to where this is found

So, how do we find it on MySpace? I couldn't find it either. Also, how are the earnings reported in our statistics?

I don't really see these questions in our forum, but would gladly respond.
I'm afraid tat you have missed these questions in this forum too. I can help you. The questions from Phil are just above your post. ;D

Hi Achilles,

Thanks for replying.

I think it is clear from the start how much we will earn.  What I would like to know is how much each of these cards (or whatever other print options there are) cost.  I mean, I get 6c for a card, but how much did the buyer pay for it?  That's a way of knowing if this is a fair deal or not. 

Of course there are print costs involved, etc, but just as a comparison, a greeting card in Zazzle earns me 30c.

I'm glad someone else thought this was funny too. ;) It is great that they come here to answer questions though.
