Wow, those are two pretty significant price increases for us.

What is everyone's prediction?  If the price of a photo increases when it reaches the next selling level, will it have a negative effect at all on proven photos that have earned sales?  Will new images sell better?  Or are buyers willing to pay the small price difference for the right photo?

I wonder if StockXpert has influenced this .30 subscription raise?

There are lots of images that have sold lots of times and have higher prices, so it looks like people are willing to pay a little bit extra.  I think they were probably going to raise the subscription price anyway but if StockXpert had gone for $0.25, they might have delayed the increase.

I think a buyer will buy a good image even if it's a bit more expensive.

My only concern, in terms of DT, is that higher prices may make subs more attractive to frequent buyers.

Regards,
Adelaide

I have quite a few higher level images at Dt and I find that these consistenlty outsell my lower level images so buyers don't mind paying the difference.

I also have quite a few level five images at DT that continue to sell on a regular basis.  Thanks Dt! :)

Good news indeed. Hopefully this will reverse the downward trend in earnings at DT. (for me at least)

This is good new indeed. As a buyer, I know that I'm willing to pay more than the lowest prices if I can find the right image. As a photographer, I know I could use the extra money   :D
