Just today I wanted to contact Adobe again, because I want to close my account after one year with NO SALES. But yes, already many months most of my images I uploaded to Adobe via wirestock and got some sales there.
But before I even could start writing Adobe about closing my personal account, I saw that I got an email from adobe: MY FIRST SALE on my personal account. RPD 23 Cent!!!!! Not 33 or something like that.
Hey, never get a sale, but now seems to be I got the first sale under new payment - see exciting announcement!
23 Cent is much more than I expected, but still not the 33 garant Cent from the PAST. YES! It starts now.

But that does not change my mind/decission: I will close my account and upload them to wirestock. But I am still curoius if I should leave Adobe totally now - even not submit to Adobe via wirestock????? Wirestock told me already, that they fall under the same payment announcement like every contributor. Lets see 1 or 2 more month. Then I might ask wirestock to delete all my images on Adobe there too.

Am I right!
The new chance for that bad sellers on adobe! Wow! I am happy!

Hi @Kall3bu,

This is likely a tax form issue in your account with maximum deductions withheld from a traditional subscription minimum payment. Send me an email with your Adobe ID and the image number and I'll take a look. If you decide you do want to close your account, I can assist you with that also.

Email: [email protected]

Thanks,

Mat

Hi Mat,

THAT could be indeed the reason! I was not thinking about it.

I contacted Adobe support already, so I guess everything will get fixed via them. But thx for your help offer.

Many contributors are lookin forward to the exciting new penny sales. When can we expect the first results?

Mat, when did this get rolled out, started? I've seen earnings tank at AS and just wondering if this is the reason. If this is the cause and this new earning level will continue then it looks like this will be an end for me.

I'm sort of hoping I've read this wrong and that AS hasn't basically got rid of higher value sales and replaced them with 0.30 ones. I normally get quite a few of the larger ones but nothing over the last 10-14 days. Those larger value sales were the only thing that makes it possible to continue supplying AS.

I suspect the drop could have more to do with the regional changes with the algorithm, I would also like to hear from Matt when we should see the first sales from the new scheme

Mat cannot answer to these questions right now. Or with his words: I have no information about this to share.
So, instead of telling that each time, he did it only very few time and now like adobe waiting what happens.

To give NO answer IS ALSO an answer!

So expecting the worst could be very close to the real.

regions WERE open to every one BEFORE that changes! I did ranking searches of my photos BEFORE they change it. (I am from Indonesia)  So, they closed it to many regions and open slowly with best images which they offer for free, if they pay for any Adobe software.

NEW photos: Not worth to upload anymore - no chance to get appear, because only best seller always appear in front. Even customer CANNOT ANYMORE search for new content, they have to take what Adobe offers them, even Adobe has much more to offer.
But not only the normal contributors got treated that bad: From the best sellers they offer them for free as explained above.
As we all know: Adobe never been a stockphoto site! They want to sell their software! And who buys it get free stockphotos from them.
Where the contributors have there benefit from it? Nowhere anymore!

I already nearly deleted all my images on Adobe and will close my account soon.

If principles like discriminating foreign countries (mostly Moslems), then there is something wrong in Adobes world. And we have to decide if we want to support them in that new way or not.
I am lucky that I have not that best seller images, so I will not loose much.

Very bland FAQs that gives us no idea what we may earn from this plan. I am assuming it will be less than normal though........

Earnings from Pro Edition are labeled Custom on your earnings page in the Contributor Portal. Note, Enterprise licenses are also labeled Custom so it is not possible to filter for just Pro Edition payouts.

Has anyone else looked at their custom earnings to see how this plan worked out?

Unpopular opinion here, so I expect a lot of downvote. But I'll still chip in.

I actually like this move from Adobe. This move is very different from royalty cut like what other agencies did recently. What Adobe did here is pulling in new customers by offering better things. I would rather these customers getting cheaply from Adobe then stealing our stuffs from pirated site. This is very similar move by Canva who at the end double your earnings by offering unlimited download. They did it with success, and I am very surprised.

Sad to say this, but the unlimited download thing is inevitable. If Adobe don't offer unlimited, others agencies will, and that would make Adobe less relevance. If old-time-contributor like you and me don't submit to unlimited agencies, other new-contributors will submit. This is not something we can stop even if we wanted to. Supply over demand, what can I say more?

So, Mat Hayward, I wish Adobe can prove many of us wrong, and show us our improved earnings in near future :)

I hope you are right...

I have been tracking this - as best I can given the absence of any stats tools that let you separate these details out. I was concerned I'd see amounts below 38 cents, the prior floor for subscription sales. I haven't seen any custom sales below 38 cents and although the volume of higher-value custom sales - above $3.30 - has decreased.

You can see a rough assessment in an earlier post I made:

https://www.microstockgroup.com/fotolia-com/adobe-stock-sales-are-so-slow-this-days/msg567518/#msg567518

Bottom line is that I'm happy that the floor didn't drop out on prices for custom sales, although there's none of the upside that I used to see at Shutterstock with SODs - $90 - $120 royalties on some sales. Mind you, I might not still see those at SS either (I'm no longer there).

Thank you as always Jo Ann. It's nice to read answers from someone who collects data. I'm just going to add that from personal observation, since I've left my images up on SS, SODs, ELs and higher price downloads for me, have dropped and disappeared at SS.

If the question from Diana was Adobe, I haven't seen a drop, and I do see some odd and increasing, Custom sales which I wouldn't expect to be the case? I'd have to go back and search year by year, before the announcement and then after, for exact numbers. Real data beats personal memory and observations, every time.  :)

Hi Jo Anne I got a sale yesterday but it shows as subscription. Does Adobe indicate when its a extended license? I see subscription and custom only on my sales.

Extended licenses can be purchased a number of ways at Adobe stock so you won't always see "extended" in your stats. That looks like 33% of the buyer's price.

Yes you are correct it is 33%, wish they would distinguish.
