on the dreamstime contract page it mentions non exclusive content can earn the creator between 25-50%. I do not understand this... how much do you get for non exclusive uploads and why is a range listed instead of an actual percentage?

Also it mentions something about the SR-EL license. Does this mean you are essentially selling your copyright away? Is there any way to opt out of such sales?

Thank You.

Most sales on DT aren't the percentage sales that involve levels that go up based on increasing numbers of sales, most are subscriptions and the contributor price is a fixed $0.35. I do get occasional $2.00 sales and every once in a while something more, but most of their buyers use the subscription plan.

DT did increased their commissions 10% starting today; I haven't had a sale yet, so my numbers are slightly out of date.

You can opt out of SR-EL sales. It's a box you check/uncheck when you submit files.

Thank you so much for the reply. I really appreciate that. I have heard so many mixed messages about this agency so I am really on the fence about it.

I did not see their earnings posted for the subscription sales on the site at all.... is that posted somewhere?

Thanks again for your reply, and any additional feedback or recommendations would be both welcome and appreciated.

It took a bit of hunting around the links at the bottom of the page to find this - not sure why it's so hidden
