Dear Contributor,

We have some great news - our subscription payouts have all increased, starting from today!

Depending on whether your images are opt-in or opt-out with DPC, your new subscription payout will grow to either 20% or 25% of the face value of the download - with a guaranteed minimum of the commission you earn now.

So you can potentially earn five times more per subscription download (if you opt-in with DPC).

We notice you have opted out from DPC - to fully benefit from commission increases with Fotolia, and additional revenue from untapped markets, we recommend you opt-in to our new fast-growing subscription website, Dollar Photo Club.

If you want to add your images back to Dollar Photo Club click here if not, then you need to do nothing.

We hope these changes will bring you significant additional revenues, starting now.

Thank you

The Fotolia Team

I will opt back in if they change the terms to 50 cents per $1 image, change their terms to "in perpetuity" unless we choose to raise your commissions. And we all know the answer to that.

at this moment the question is: do we really want to drive buyers to DPC?

I would say no, we have tons of fair agencies (ok with zero sales) and 50 cents doesn't look exciting once that is all we will get, there are no ODs, ELs and SODs

they need to push the 10$ plan to 250$ and introduce the other plans as well and perhaps get ride of fotolia

99% of my subs are at .29 cents, maybe fotolia was so eager to give us this "raise" because they knew it would hardly affect anything.

They are one of the lowest payers and that's why I left them and that dollar bin club thing is almost the finish line to the race to the bottom.

This latest thing intensifies that race to the bottom.... Don't chase the rabbit ;)

FYI, I was being sarcastic. I will never support DPC because of WHO RUNS Fotolia.

I don't get it, I still get 0.29 per subscription download (XL size).

I'm opted out of DPC.

Did I misunderstand something?

I got 0,25 for a XXL image yesterday. I opted out of the DPC today.

Most subscription sales are still 0.29, but there are a few bigger ones. I've got some .36, .38, .40, ...  but most of them are 0.29  (normal commission at silver)

My land lord just stopped by to collect the rent- I told them not to worry since I will be making more money now with Fotolia! Sort of like telling them that the check is in the mail  8)

I recieved the email from Fotolia today. Still not interested in "opt in". In fact, if i could, i would double check "opt out" today!
The basis concept of DPC is wrong, its not good business for any of us whom takes microstock seriously and aspire to it be a durable and sustainable business. We are not going to shoot in our own foot.
(once again, sorry for my bad english)

How does one opt-out of the DPC (Dollar Photo Club)? I looked on my Fotolia account and was  unable to find anything. Sorry if this was already mentioned elsewhere. I just missed it.  :-*

I just opted out of that thing. God knows I need money more than ever now. However, it sounds like the consequences are bad for all of us in the long-term. I want to keep doing microstock work for the long-termand not hurt myself or others in the future for short-term gain.

It's been a long time since anyone discussed Photoxpress.com, which is also a Fotolia cheap subscription site: http://www.photoxpress.com/Info/Upgrade/px_monthly_25

It does seem like DPC is a cheaper version, esp. at lower quantities.

When did the DPC officially go online?

Looking at my stats from January 1, 2014 through today, I see my sales have doubled at FT starting in mid-March. However, that was when I went full-time with microstock illustration and have quadrupled my submissions. So I'm hoping my increase is from my hard work and not the DPC  :-[

I've seen no noticeable decrease in sales more than 2 week after opting out

Thanks for educating us on this important issue. We need to send a signal to the industry.
