Wish I could get my CC app to work so I can update PS and see how this integrates.

Is there any way to see which DLs come from this source on the FT site - or how does reporting work?

Sounds like good news.  Thanks!

Considering that all everyone will get 33% maybe the accounts stepping up to Silver have something to do with that and it is easier just to bump a ranking than changing anything else?


Though jumped to silver, I don't see any revenue changes in today's downloads.


same here


I see it. Was getting 1.84 credits for L sale, today it was 2.0. Subs also, 0,29 instead of 0.27 that was yesterday.


1.84 is a 8 credit L sale, it is not new, it was changed in March - http://www.microstockgroup.com/fotolia-com/credits-price-change/msg411547/?topicseen#new

I had in May: sub L=3.13; sub M = 2.50; sub M = 1.07; sub M = 0.8 and others. I have no idea where are they coming from but they are not new.

I am happy too for the extra exposure but I don't remember Adobe being a charitable org. Let's wait up.

Looks like I was jumped to silver sometime between 10 and 12:30 Uk time. Some proper competition for SS at last? Which I.m specially pleased about as they seem to think my focus control on my camera is bust!

Yes it's 8 credit sale. I'm talking about level change, not price change. Yesterday I got 1.84 commission, and today I got 2.00 commission.

You get a royalty. Agencies take commission. Just to be pedantic.  ;)

Wow!

I am shocked at how many NEGATIVE post have come out of this great news... Maybe that's why I come less often on this forum. All contributors have been stating about the cut in the commissions in Fotolia. Now that we have big increase and receive a 1/3 commission along with a new platform to generate revenue, most of you still find place to complain instead of taking one small moment to say Thank You to Adobe for taking a step forward in fixing a flawed system.

Cheer up everyone! :)

Well, under a thumbnail of a sold file, it says commission. Doesn't matter anyway.

Did anyone else's ranking position changed? I had a "bronze" medal, for "658" downloads. Now I just checked, and apparently I have silver medal, despite having less than 1000 downloads. And when I go with a mouse on silver medal icon, it says only 9,342 more sales needed for next (gold) level.

Mat's post had this part about how sub sales also will count for 1 sale and not 0.25 sale.

...
In addition, all subscription sales at Fotolia and Adobe Stock will be equal to one full download towards your rank. This gives you an opportunity to jump through the ranks and increase your income at a much faster rate. All you have to do is continue to submit your images through Fotolia.

It appears that they may retroactively recalculate the number of downloads which will bump many to higher levels. Hopefully Mat will confirm this when he comes back online.

My total downloads which are taken for ranking has now been updated to the total of the sales in credits plus sales with subscription. But the bump was not sufficient for a jump in level :)

Adobe is a massive shop window for our business and a pay rise is refreshing and motivating. Other agencies should take note and take positive action for both customers and suppliers or they will rue the day.

Is it a pay raise?  750 images for $199 means you would get something like 8 or 9 cents per sale doesn't it?

I am still at the same rank but now need -491 to get to the next one.  If they really make this retroactive it will be great although obviously they still have a few bugs to work out of the system.  I would also like to see for sure what the minimums are, but in general this sounds like positive news where an agency actually listened and thought about contributors.  I haven't had any DLs since the announcement but am looking forward hopefully to an increase in revenue and this makes me want to start submitting again.

Same here. But I managed to climb from bronze to silver level.

I am talking about the same thing, those values mentioned above are commissions (revenues), money in hand.
I have no idea what level change is.

If you look into this link (https://us.fotolia.com/Info/Contributors/Royalties) that Mat had given on page 1, it appears that "Adobe Stock - 750 images per month" will give the "Minimum guarantee" which starts at 25 cents. On the same page in Adobe FT words "Get 33% on every sale on a Fotolia subscription or on Adobe Stock. Actual payout will depend on the price of the image paid by the buyer. Minimum guarantee applies to make sure contributors are always fairly compensated, whatever the price is."

This is my take reading the link; I hope we will be able to get a reply from Mat on this.

I think that's correct but then is it a raise since everyone will get the guaranteed minimum?  Did they raise that or is it staying the same?

SS still pays more. 38 cents compared to 25 cents. I am only a little touched by the generosity  ::)

When something changes in positive way I always try to emphasize that as well as when it's other way around.

So, keep on good work and positive changes for contributors Fotolia/Adobe team, get rid of DPC if you can(more buyers on ft/adobe stock) and count on my vector illustrations and photos for a long time!

After DPC thing (it wasn't a deal) I almost deleted my portfolio, but when you made option to exclude my portfolio I stayed.

I wish you win the market battle against all agencies that pay contributors less commission compared to you.

However, in terms of average $/DL, FT was already paying slightly better than SS.
This upgrade will only increase the gap.

Glad to see the sub sales counting as a full point, now. My stats have been also updated. Now, instead of waiting for 5 years, I will probably need only 1 year to reach gold.
