Having vectors will also influence our average because they can't go below one dollar, well..... now with subscriptions they can!


I'm not sure what you mean by this. The smallest amount you can earn on a vector is based on a 1 credit image, and the smallest amount you can earn on a photo is based on a 1 credit XS image. Is the low not the same?


You're right! After the price change I thought there where no more 1 credit vectors. But it seems there are. At least I don't have any!  ;D

Our current vector prices are 1, 5, 10 and 20 credits. What we'll be doing August 20th is raising these to 3, 7, 12 and 25.




and the next sentence in that thread you quoted reads:

That's not all though: We're adding a brand new price level for 1 credit (making the final price levels 1, 3, 7, 12 and 25).


Anyway, that thread is old news too b/c there is no such animal as a 3 credit vector anymore. The actual prices for vectors are currently 1-5-10-15-25.

...It is VERY hard now to get something through that is accepted AND only 1 credit.

I agree. I find that if it's something so simple that it justifies a 1-credit price, it is also very likely to just get rejected as not suitable for stock.

FWIW, I don't have but a couple of one-credit vectors. It is VERY hard now to get something through that is accepted AND only 1 credit.


I don't know why, but I don't have problems with that. I made a lot to reach gold canister. You have to upload one simple design element, like an icon or a very simple background. Sometimes they come 5 credits, but if you send an email to vectorpricing, they usually listen.

I will post June when it is July to see how much of a difference Exclusivity made, if any.
