Title: Multiple EL Requests
Post by: PigsInSpace on January 28, 2018, 22:27
I've received a bunch of Web-EL approval requests from Dreamstime, but I don't really know what 50 credits translates to in English -- their website says an EL on a Level 1 file is $17. Is that the net for the seller, or is that total then split between the seller and Dreamstime?

I'm a bit confused by the requests as is. Most of them are similar images, which makes sense, but a few are completely random files that are unrelated and have never been downloaded before.

"Multiple EL Requests"

Multiple means "more than one". The "s" on the end of "request" makes it clear that there is more than one request.

So why do you need "multiple"?

What you get for an EL varies widely. I think the lowest I have received per credit is on the order of 11 cents, but that is the extreme end of huge credit purchases on a level 0 image. I rarely get much more than 50 cents per credit, so that means your 50 credit EL sale would be somewhere between $5.50 and $25 with the possibility of a bit more. Realistically probably more in the $10 to $20 range. If all these requests are real, then they will most likely be from someone who is buying a massive credit pack which tends to push things to the lower end of the range. I very much doubt that all these EL requests are real though.
