For sale of same file at same level:

late December 2010 - TIFF - 20 credits (2010 credits)

early January 2011 - TIFF - 15 credits (2011 credits)

If client buys bulk credit package, is smaller number of credits needed for Tiffs?
Is there some other variable related to TIFF prices I'm not taking into account?

Hmm, I just logged out & checked its TIFF price = 20 credits.

It's okay with me if it was bought by same client that got the tiff a few days ago, & deal was worked out, but otherwise, this is odd.

should be a level 2 and a level 3.. don't know :P

interesting, madelaide -

further checking into this, I've noticed same level TIFFs for 15 credits, 18 credits, 20 credits - so more than Level figures into price.
 
must be one or more of these:  RM/RF - Exclusive Image or Not - TIFF File Size

[Edited to add:  another variable: Exclusive Contributor or not?]


I checked some of mine:

level 1 - 11 credits
level 2 - 15 credits
level 3 - 20 credits
level 4 - 23 credits
level 5 - 26 credits

My level 5 is my only level 5 and it is exclusive.

My other exclusive is a level 2 and is 15 credits just like other level 2s.  It is very large (4525x5374) while some of the non-exclusives are much smaller (2410x3213 and 2896x2172, for instance).  So it doesn't seem to be related with exclusivity or size.

Puzzling indeed that there are such different prices.  ???

LOL - madelaide, I finally decided to approach this from opposite angle...

I logged out and checked out how many credits it would cost me as a logged out person to buy TIFFs of some of your images and my images.

your level 1 = 18 credits     (my level 1 = 11 credits)
your level 2 = 20 credits     (my level 2 = 15 credits)
your level 3 = 21 credits     (my level 3 = 20 credits)
your level 4 = 24 credits     (my level 4 = 23 credits)
your level 5 = 27 credits     (my level 5 = 26 credits)


So the credit #s you saw for you are same as the credit #s I see for myself, and less than what I see for you.

Now all is clear  ;)

My level 5 is my only level 5 and it is exclusive.

My other exclusive is a level 2 and is 15 credits just like other level 2s.  It is very large (4525x5374) while some of the non-exclusives are much smaller (2410x3213 and 2896x2172, for instance).  So it doesn't seem to be related with exclusivity or size.

I do have a little problem understanding DT pricing here:

I recently had a file downloaded as TIFF for 18 credits - but when I click on it the pricing chart shows 11 credits as price for the TIFF.
Today the same file had another download, a medium - for 6 credits. But again, that's not the price shown on the file (that is 4 credits).

It's a level one non-exclusive file.

I'm a bit puzzled where these higher prices come from (not complaining though  ;) ), I am not able to see them on this file (whether logged in or logged out). Anybody has an explanation?

It seems like they list a lower price for buying your own files as a tiff.

I could be wrong about that though.

It shows the same (lower) prices when I am logged out. And not only for the TIFF, also for the medium size (never had a medium sale for 6 credits on a level one file before).

Maybe sales via partner sites?

Earlier today, I was signed into DT, and then clicked "log out" - The screen had a place for me to Log In, but it also said "Hi XXXXX" with my facebook name given.
So it seems like there's a grey zone you can be in - when you log out but are still viewing the DT site with same browser...

Perhaps this helps explain why, though I'm logged out, I see different credit costs for same level+ tiffs, depending on whether they're mine or someone else's (as I mentioned in an earlier post).

Not so grey.

They are two different and separate logins. Removing the DT account connection, doesn't close the Facebook, connection.

Although I've never connected to DT with my Facebook account and don't even know if it's registered with them.
