Thanks Warren.  I'll take a look in the forums.  Sales today are about 1/4 of what they normally are.  Wonder if this is the cause?

There are a lot of questions about that in the forum.  My sales are actually pretty good.  Maybe the search is favoring misfits?   :P ;D

Or perhaps socialists took over ;)

Heaven only knows what it is favouring. I'm heading for the worst month in TWO YEARS!!! And back then I had only just started submitting.
RPD is normal, just downloads have tanked....
:(

Reporting of sales is still delayed. I can see four sales using the facebook link that aren't showing up yet and there could be more. I don't know if the earnings for them have appeared yet or not.

I think this might be affecting me. I have only had one .35 sale in the past 4 days. Which is unusual. Prior to that this month, I had a few sales every day, moving my total commission up nicely.  >:(

I don't look on facebook for sales, but it does seem that the sales stats update only once per day lately. The earnings balance might update more often. Someone who gets a lot more sales than I do could probably say more accurately.

In the good old days (from beginning of time to last Saturday or so), DT refreshes seemed to show updates every 20 minutes or so.  Last weekend they happened every 10 or 12 hours.  It has slowly been getting better all week.  This morning I seem to be seeing new downloads in small groups refreshed once an hour or so.

Looks like I'm going to be the first one to say it: WE GOT A RAISE!!! Woo-yay!

I just looked at the level pricing and it looks like they have gone up.  Now I'll wait to get my first dl with the new pricing.

I sure hope they don't drop our percentage to make up for it.

Otherwise, thank you DT.

level 1 is gone which means pictures with 1 to 4 sales are now at 5 credits (XS), it is now the highest price for buyers around all agencies no?

If it stays like this, I mean if they make it official, I'm going to start recommending DT to every single buyer I know.

Hey Luis where are you seeing the level changes at?  I'm looking around and still see the same levels from 0-5.

Either I need to clear my cache, log out or something else because I'm not seeing it yet.  Unless it hasn't propogated to the server I'm on yet.  Still shows level 1.  No biggie I'll check it out later on this week.

Stills shows as Level 1 to me too Anita (using IE9). There's a thread on the DT forum that says that IE users do not see a change but Google Chrome ones do. Hope that clarifies a bit! Kind regards, David.

I had to delete cookies and clear the cache before seeing a difference. One minute images were one level, delete all DT cookies, clear the cache and suddenly they were a different level.

Figures it's an IE issue  :P  I shall clear my cache and see what that does.

Thanks :)

Ah did that but IE is still a mess.  I can see it on Firefox though.

I can't understand anyone using IE. It's just such utter crap, some sites are not even shown properly using IE.

My last 2 sales were both the first sales for those images. one was listed as level 0 one as level 1, so I don't think that they have entirely switched over yet.

I'm seeing identical discrepancies ...

Sunday was one of the worst sales days for met at DT in a long time.  Almost entirely sub sales and a very small amount of them.  If this is a result of the pricing changes, making my pics too expensive for the typical buyer, than count me in the apparent minority as someone who sees the new price model as a very bad thing.  Anyone else see an alarming number of subs on Sunday?

If every major agency would raise prices, buyers would take it as normal (they're getting huge discounts from day 1 anyway). In fact, quadrupling the prices would make them normal, barely normal, but at least they'd be in the "normal" area. Volumes would probably be split in half, but still, earnings would double ;)

There's nothing actually wrong with the prices that our images sell for; our real problem is the excessive commission that the microstock agencies take. The trouble is that we contributors have come to see such takes as 'normal'.

If phone app's can be sold profitably with only a 30% commission cut then so could our images.
