Canva / Re: Upload progress @ canva?
« on: February 02, 2021, 19:01 »
i try to upload my vectors (only eps files) directly via their site (i put the metadata inside the eps file in adobe bridge) and it work better than the ftp, it upload in seconds to my portfolio, but they are waiting for review for long time as always... try it!

How do you upload vectors to canva, I mean, do you upload eps file and jpeg in zip file, or just eps.?

I use ftp - EPS + JPG (with metadata embedded).
Lately they made it possible to upload vectors directly via their site, but they ask for the metadata to be included in a CSV file. I don't want to do this extra work, so I prefer the ftp method.
I embed metadata in the JPG file and that works for almost all agencies.

idem, march an april earning are almost the same, canva not doublem my march earning


Well I saw it before they deleted it, and my downloads had increased by 500%.

No wonder they removed the field from the sales page, as everyone must be pretty angry to realise the true RPD.

Canva are clearly too ashamed to be transparent on this issue.

Wow, 5x more downloads and less income?

Anyone here got an increase in their income with this new subscription? Or we can start a poll if you want to remain anonymous. My guess is Canva expect some to earn more, and some earn less, and after 6 months those that earns less will remove their portfolio.

On my side I had a smaller brand of standard color vectors who Almost doubled (85%), and my other brand dropped income by 400$ (compared to march, other months were all better than march). In the end I end up with around as much as I made before.

Why would Canva make such a bold statement of doubling our income if we fall short by... 100%, with no gain at all? Let's see now if they dive into their pocket and pay us the promised double earnings.

My actual earnings for March and April were almost identical, so when Canva double the earning figure I will be better off. I would be happy with double the downloads and double the earnings, but the download number was 5x higher than March.

I've been with Canva since the very start, met Melanie Perkins at the 2013 Berlin Mexpo where the product was launched. At the time, it was a breath of fresh air - particularly as we were all starting to get worried about Shutterstock hitting 20 million images!

It's sad to see the way things have developed. I haven't added any new content to Canva for some time, and now know that I won't. I'll wait out the six months and pull my port. I'd rather take the hit on monthly income than give my work away for pennies. Sadly, even Istock are giving me a much higher RPD and at least they provide a download report. Canva pulling the download number is very telling and that lack of transparency is worrying.

And you belive them??? mmmm....


Today only 1 download, just 1, just $0.35 earning!!!!! really!!!!!???? before i get hundred download in one day, but today just one!!!! have to by exited or happy with this new change?  :'(

What you need to understand is that you will see your April earnings by the 10th to the 15th of May, on the Subscription earning panels. Right now the sales have been normal from the 1st to the 6th of April. The rest, they ''moved'' to the subscription with the new Canva announcement (you will double your March earnings for the next 6 month). I had 10k to 14k download per month. Now I have 2.6k halfway in the month. But I trust to see much higher earnings appear on the subscription part.

And this 2 downloads....


Contacted them twice already, no reaction yet  :-\

Sometimes I get the impression that they simply refuse to answer questions on sensitive subjects (for them).
Several times I asked them why, if my commission was 35%, I was only getting $0.35 for images that sold for $1.39.
I never received an answer to that question.

And this 2 downloads...

I also asked them if it was normal that the same image was sold 5 or 10 times in a row for $0.35... so apparently to the same person. It seems to me that it's against their rules...
I never received an answer to that question.

Overall I have quite good sales on this site, but I find it lacks clarity and transparency.

Not that I know for sure, and I certainly am not condoning sites not answering questions or having useful FAQ pages, but my understanding was that the sales listed at 1.39 or whatever were in some other currency the equivalent of $1 US - hence the .35 for us. Also multiple sales to the same person were one of the advantages of Canva originally - sure, we only got .35 but if you wanted to make a flyer and an e-mail and a poster, you would have to purchase the image for each one. It still happens, but it seems a lot less than it used to.

It is indicated $ (maybe they are another kind of $. Canadian, Australian?)

June of last year, I made $450 on Canva.  This month, I'll be lucky if I break $35.  That's how far and how fast they've collapsed.


Uffffff  :o im not the only one

i think they already start it... you can see it when you go to yout portfolio and click on one of your image... (see screenshot)

I think this is why our earnings going down, because of this new unlimited subscription

So when you're all still selling, that means you chose to support their unlimited subscription model?
Because I asked to opt out of that with the result that my portfolio was removed...

So how do results of unlimited subscriptions look like? Has that started already?

But do you see something in the reporting? I.e. something other than the usual $0,35 (and rare $3,50) sales?

No, they haven't started yet.

Same here, and when i see my portfolio, all my vectors are gone, only see my photos, i report this 2 weeks ago and nothing happend, no fix at all and earnings going down and down  ???
It is an absolute nightmare. They were so promising as an actually innovative new idea. Then they got into bed with Getty and sales are absolutely going through the floor. Really depressed about this one.

It really is sad.  Just a year ago, I made $450 there.  This month, looks to be around $40.  Such a good idea too.h
