Maybe someone of you can help me to understand how the calculation of sales works when you just got to >1000 downloads level.

Since the beginning of February I have reached 1000 downloads and since then the percentage on small sales has also increased from 0.33 to 0.36.
- for some larger sales it is now 1.06 (instead of 0.99 before), for other sales it is still 0.99?
- today an extended license came in, which was charged with 26,40 like the 0,33 rate. Shouldn't this license with the >1000 downloads account bring 28.80 (26.40 / 0.33 * 0.36)?

Or have I overlooked something here?

Thank you, Michael

Hi Michael,

the 0,66, 0,99 and 26,40 remain the same - no matter what level you have reached. As far as I remember only the small sales are concerned.

I had suspected something like that, but wasn't sure.

What puzzles me is that since I have >1000 downloads rank sales at 1.06, which were previously 0.99 - but maybe that doesn't apply to extended licenses.

But a sale for 1,06 can't be a subscription. All subscriptions are 0,66 an 0,99. And the lower ones depend on your level but will never reach more than 0,38.

Michael, these amounts are credit packs or on-demand purchases, of which you get 33% regardless of level.

@Wilm,Ralf:
Thank you, now I get it too :)

Probably it was just an unfortunate coincidence that exactly after the day of the >1000 downloads suddenly 1.06 sales came in.

Nice when you can ask a community :-)

The rate for image downloads is 33% of the price paid by the customer. The price paid varies based on the plan the customer is on. For the Extended license you referenced, a common price paid is $79.99 which results in the $26.40 royalty you saw recently.

The .36 royalty you referenced is the minimum payment amount for large subscription packages. If the price per download on these subscriptions results in a royalty less than .36 in your case, then the minimum kicks into play instead of the 33% rate.

Hello Mat,

first of all thank you very much for the very precise information, which of course completely clarifies the question!
I was hoping to find an answer here before you sacrifice your time for clarification :-)

For some reason I had the 33% for all image sales in mind, which then would have fit very well with the sudden 1.06 sales - my mistake!

Thanks again and have a nice evening to all in the forum :)

Today I had a 0,33 image sale (ID 290229907) while being at Level 2.
As Mat's link showed ( https://helpx.adobe.com/stock/contributor/help/royalty-details.html ), the minimum amount on level 2 should be 0.36 - or have I missed another point here?

I don't want to complain about $0.03, but I would like to understand how this comes about :-)

Hi Mat, thanks for your input - there's really no rush though, I'm just curious :-)

Was it "custom" not "subscription"? I get 38 subscriptions but have had a (small) handful of the 33 custom royalties since the announcement of Creative Cloud Express:

Hello Jo Ann,
it looked like this in my report (see attached image)

Actually I didn't find if a sale is subscription or custom in the german interface.

I can't get google translate to make my contributor interface German - I assume because it can't log in - but here's what my English interface looks like. As if to order, I just got another of those 33 custom sales!

I can't see why you wouldn't have two terms used for your royalties in the German interface as in the English one - subscription & custom

You should look at your activity view not the default view. And then you can see the type of license. It's the second from the list.

I confirmed this was a credit based Enterprise customer license. As many of you know, the price per credit varies with custom Enterprise agreements. This particular customer has a price of $1 per credit. The minimum payment only applies to large subscription plans so it would not apply here. The royalty rate remains at 33% so the .33 royalty payment is accurate.

Thank you,

Mat Hayward

That's the difference!

I had forgotten what the default is - because it is totally useless.  I had made a bookmark to go directly to the useful stats using this URL (you can't see my stats via this but when logged in it should work for any contributor):

If I just go to the default, I see everything as Photos

Thanks @ Mat, SVN, Jo Ann:
You are right: The sale was a 'custom' sale or in german 'benutzerdefiniert'.

Not easy to understand, that there is a minimum payment, which is not used on any sales - this make it more like a 'sometimes minimum'.
But I am totally fine with that and happy to have a sale at all :-)

Thanks again for clarification!
