I dont understand DT subscription Earning vs Fee :
 - When I have a subscription sale, DT credit me $0.35
 - The customer fee for subscription is between $0.18 and $0.24 per image

How can DT make money ?
Or did I miss something ?

Most customers don't use their full quota

If DT pays me $0.35, DT probably need to make at least $0.70 from the customer (much more if you look at iStock).

With a customer fee per image of less than $0.24, this would mean customers use less than 30% of their full quota  :o
Look as if subscription is not such a big deal for the customers.

they said before that subscription plans are only for marketing to attract more buyers , and they sometime earn nothing and may be lose.. they give exlusive .42 cent so these subscription plans are not profitable at all for the agency even if buyers donot use their full quota..

anyway it is like marketing, and you must pay to promote your agency, so they do the same thing..
like what they do on assignments or milestones or even upload bonus..i think it is good thing, they are different from all other sites, community, team.. i like this site anyway, despite leak of sales but they work at no barriers

Well unless I'm an exception most of their sales are subs so its an expensive way of attracting buyers...who presumably buy subs. If they didn't make a profit on them they would soon be out of business.

yes, it is expensive solution but competition is very high and require sacrifice.. not all buyers use subscription plans, there are many that use credits or even small subscription plans(that are profitable for the company btw)..anyways, dreamstime is very big agency in this competition,that shouldnot be out of business..

Entirely possible I doubt I use 1% of the TV watching my subscription package allows me to. Large businesses just buy a subs package large enough to ensure they don't need to worry about it. Maybe they download like crazy for a couple of months then revert to normal. Its similar to how gyms make a profit...if all their members turned up through the year they would never cope ;-).

Same goes for a lot of other shared resources systems like: cashiers in a supermarket, bandwidth available in mobile network, number of lanes on a highway, toilets in an office, elevators in a skyscraper, operators in a call center, etc, This is also why airlines are overbooking. All these systems are not designed for simultaneous concurrent access, but rely on proven statistics like acceptable congestion levels, arrival rate distributions, etc.
There is a whole mathematical theory developed to predict the behavior of such shared resources systems.
