I haven't seen that option.  Don't contributors have to reach a certain level to set any pricing options?

^^^ Yes, I believe for white it is 20, for bronze 50 and from Silver up it is 100. Also I believe old files will stay at whatever price you assigned to them when submitted unless you do something about it (like go through them and up the price or ask support).

However it still does not seem to go this low:

Seems to suggest that the lowest one can get is 35% of 20 credits which should be $7. Wait, how about the witholding tax? If the max of 30% is applied on that it means $4.9.

If you log in, click on the 'Files' tab and then 'Edit' on any of you images, you can scroll down to see tab with prices and your royalities for all licenses.

I think the page I pointed to above is outdated, the comission is now lower after their latest cut. Obviously they did not yet get to updating that page. So for me it is 23% of my 50 price which means $11.5. If I would leave my older files at 20, it would be exactly $
4.6, so I think that's it.

Yes, in that case that's exactly it. Your older files still have the 20 credit price tag (you did not have option to assign any other tag when you were submitting them as white and they do not go to higher price with your level).

23% * 20 = $4.6

Yes, I described it above. You go to your files, click the edit button on the far right next to you small image thumb, then scroll down to the tab with prices. In there you can change the X price to 50 and save the change.

I did it for this file but do I have to do it for each one separately?

Yes, you have to do it file by file. Or you can try to contact support and ask them to do it for you for all your files at once.

I just opened another ticket for that.

On a side note, even $11 seems to be pretty low in comparison to other sites.

Did you forget for a moment that you are speaking about Fotolia?

I just went thorugh my stats, since I started to UL again this month, I didn't ever bother before, since the sales were so pathetic, and saw I got 4$ for an EL?!? Who are they kidding? How's that even possible? Now that's what I call destroying the business.

And they don't even have to buy the file, like on IS, where you buy the file and the EL along with it. That way I'd at least make over 5$, lol.

I think this MS industry really needs a new licencing type and no EL should be below 100$ and restrictions (print runs etc) should be tightened, meaning they should buy ELs for lower print runs, I'd say anything above 10k (newspapers are lowering print runs all the time anyway). I feel cheated at IS when I get a 18$ EL, but 4$ really is beyond absurd.

You will die soon from the blood * ways over there.  I piss my pants every time I see my sales go down by 20 a month, then 30, then 50, then 80. Are you getting drowsy yet?
