Dont think they review images for better ranks first. They all wait in the same queue. It takes about 3-4 days theese days.

Believe me it makes up for it when you start to get nearly 60$ for each EL which is much more than I get anywhere else

So I guess that means I'll have to keep hanging on! Thanks :D

congrats.

I've still many images set at $20 or $30 for an EL.  But because FT pays one of the worst royalties (37% in my case) I would like to bump them all to $100.  Is there a way to do this for all images ?  Don't want to go through every of my 1000 images seperately

Just send them a message asking them to bump them to 100$. I did this when I reached bronze and it was done in 2 days.

tnx, I'll give it a try

I checked my stats, and I had 14 EL's the last 1000 Dl's,  totalling 415 credits as sale price.

Just asked FT to increase all my files to 100 credits for a EL.  If they do so I'll track my next 1000 DL and see how much they yielded me.

I could be way off base, and I know a lot of people disagree, but IMHO now is not the time to be raising prices. 

Even though the microstock market is still undervalued, with a worldwide recession people are wary of how they spend their money. 

I really believe that buyers who see prices rising will be a bit more hesitant to part with their money - even if they can afford it, they may resent the rise on principle more than they would have in the past. 

I am not familiar with your portfolio so maybe your style or subject matter are so unique you can charge whatever you want, but for most of us there are going to be similar images available at EL prices of much less than $100 and price conscious buyers might pick those instead.

I dont really care that much. I sell the same number of ELs when they were 50$, which is 1 every 2 months. It is not so often, so If I never sell any ELs on FT, I wont be loosing too much. FT ELs gets me about 1% total earnings.

Lisa,

maybe you are right, maybe not.  The only way to find out is the change the price every 1000 dl's and see what happens.

I must say I didn't really liked the $20 EL's I was getting.  At FT I only get 37% of it which is 7.4 credits.  Not that much.

Oh, yes, definitely $20 is low.  Mine are at $60 and I get around $24 of that. 

Would love to hear your experience after having them at the higher rate for awhile.  Hopefully I am wrong (wouldn't be the first time!) and the buyers will still be biting :)
