It's been a while since we've discussed the recent pricing and commission changes at Dreamstime.  There was a lot of concern that contributors would end up losing out.  I think enough time has passed to be able to see how it affected us.  

I don't normally click on my Statistics button in the Dreamstime management area, but something possessed me to do so today, and I was surprised by what I saw.  My monthly sales line was on a pretty steady upward climb until the end of 09, when it took a dip then regained upward momentum but not as steep as before.  But at the same time, my revenue line shot up.  Now the two lines have a huge gap between them, with revenue sharply over sales, whereas they used to be right on top of each other.  This suggests to me that the pricing changes may have squeezed my sales but at the same time put more money in my pocket.

How have the changes impacted you?

They just added all the price and rank bumps in January, right? (just making sure)

So far, January had a good RPD and average downloads and February had a terrible RPD and about the same average downloads. So, the jury is still out for me, but I'm leaning towards this being not much of a positive impact.

on the 13 month graph, both sales and revenue are slowly going down for me (spikes but overall slow decline), feb sales were roughly the same as november & december, however the revenue is very noticeably less

My earnings at DT have dipped gradually over time, but in fairness I wasn't uploading there for a couple of months.

I did see a dip in January, but sales came back a little in February. Interesting first few days of March, RPD jumped to $4.11.
