I got a $0.09 sale yesterday but today it was corrected and now it shows the regular amount for a sub.
I thought it was a mistake, but I just just got another $0.09. Another mistake?

I got 7 cents, I asked, if this was right and I got this answer:

Thank you for contacting us. We have checked your $0.07 sale with subscription and confirmed that it was a technical glitch, please accept our apologies for any inconveniences. We will double-check and add correct amount to your account within few business days. Thank you for your understanding.

So you have to bitch to get them to correct the error? It's what it sounds like to me. While they hang on to the error-driven cash over perhaps thousands of sales.

I wrote them a little note through Live-Chat. I got the answer and the correction within minutes.

Yeah, especially if enough people don't catch the error or watch DP close, a "technical glitch" which seems to be repeating and common.

Maybe the mistake is submitting anything to DP?  :)

I just had a nine-center too.  Too lazy to write them - will wait a few days to see if they auto-correct.  Will be interesting to see if they let it slide if you don't write them.

Found an image of mine on a DP partner site selling for $200, wonder what my cut would have been if it had sold (a lot less than 3%!). Cancelled all partner sites and don't upload anymore.

Which partner site?  I'd like to make sure I'm still opted out.

Thanks

I wonder how much they are paying their programmers and cyber security experts. Nine bucks per hours?

It can only be done if you explicitly request them to do it for you.

I wrote support.  They did not reply but the two .08 sales were changes to .31.

I wrote too and they want my contributor name to stop my photos to be sale there. I said that it was not acceptable to sell at this cost

Sorry I can't remember. I just searched on google images for a few of my photos and checked out the dodgy looking ones.

Seems like they fixed the glitch. And yet I feel it's time to pull the plug.

Didn't they have their own "partner site" (which they ran and owned) that they were selling our work to, for a sub and then re-licensing for high fees. You'd get a sub they would charge much more for the re-license. Enough of that trickery, should have caused the Opt out for all partner sales for anyone who reads here.

Since my Opt Out was all of DP I can't say much more than be careful, Deposit has a habit of coming up with some unusual business practices.

It may have been that, what a way to conduct business!
