Title: Strange Fotolia sub sale with 5 credits commission
Post by: mike123 on October 02, 2014, 15:29
Hello folks,

got a strange Fotolia sub sale today on one of my images... Netted me 5 credits commission (which is not bad of course). But do you know what kind of sale it might be?

I am opted out of DPC, so it shouldn't (hopefully) be some kind of DPC extended sale.

Thanks for your help!

FT changed their subs commissions after all the complaints about DPC (and about their monthly subs packages, which essentially are nothing else but credit packages, but used to pay just subs royalties). Now you get 20% of what the buyer paid (25% if opted into DPC).

Do get 5 Credits the buyer must have paid 25 for the one image.

On the German site they sell those monthly "subscriptions" for 25 for 5 images.

So if a buyer just used one of those, that might lead to such a sale.

That assumes that FT really takes into account how much of his quota a buyer has used. But that would mean that they can only inform you about the sale once the validity of the credit pack has expired, so no real time reporting for those subs...

Many assumptions, but the only way I can come up with a 5 credit sub sale.
The biggest I had was a little over one credit, 1.07 to be exact.

Dirkr this really might be the only possible explanation. I didn't even think that Fotolia could take the quota into account.

Well better this way then having real time reporting but fixed commission regardless of how many images of the subscription quoty the buyer really used.

This, or Fotolia came up with some new type of "subscriptions", probably for some chosen clients.
