Canva / Re: Canva Etsy Copyright Problems
« on: October 27, 2021, 05:19 »
Justanotherphotographer is correct, Canva does not allow sub-licensing of content, with an extremely limited exception ('Additional Rights for Client Designs') where a Canva design (and its licenses) can be transferred to one specific client. That is intended to cover a designer using Canva to create designs for their client, but it certainly does not extend to people reselling content to multiple people on Etsy.

Only Canva can issue licenses for content and this is done through our platform. This enables us to keep a record of licenses (so we can confirm when there is a dispute), but secondly and most importantly, pay the creator every time a Pro media is used.

In relation to Annie's link, the page states "Dont sell, redistribute, or take credit for unaltered media provided through Canva."

We are working on some detection mechanisms that educate and/or block users from exporting designs solely consisting of one unaltered high-resolution Pro media, however there will always be workarounds. We do welcome any suggestions for how we can make this more clear.

Anyone else having a really bad month at Canva? Only 2 sales so far, which is higly unususal.
The vast majority of our royalties come from subscription usages these days, so looking at individual sales probably won't give you the most accurate picture.

July has been a normal / usual month for us, so there shouldn't be anything out of the ordinary with earnings when this month finishes and the royalties are paid out.

Hey Louda, have you been able to resolve this issue? We take IP very seriously, and as zsooofija mentioned, the proper channel for copyright enquiries is [email protected].

If you're finding your photos on Canva and have not licensed it to us, that's definitely something we're keen to look into.

P.S. I can share increasing diversity and representation in our content is one of our focus areas. Empowering everyone is part of our mission and core values. We'll be testing out modest boosts for diverse imagery in search results, as well as working to add an ethnicity filter in search results (like other stock photography sites).

We are also scaling up template creation for every locale and culture. When we create templates, we often use premium photos from contributors and these can drive a lot of sales/usages/royalties. I would expect diverse content (ethnicity, different cultures, locales) to get a modest boost over the coming months and years.

Hey, happy to comment :)

We've significantly increased payments to contributors since April, even ignoring the 2x guarantee. These increases were to "subscription earnings"; and so it's natural to see download royalty earnings significantly decline; until you get the subscription earnings at the end of each month. The majority of contributors are earning more money than before.

I understand that some aren't. Commenting generally, older content tends to fall out of favour with our users as time goes by, so if you're seeing earning decreases I would suggest seeing whether you can refresh your Canva portfolio with newer shoots. Changes in what Canva users (and the world) searches for also affect this.

The new subscription program has been a success for us, and we hope you see it as the same. We are continuing to work on (and invest a lot of $$$ into) growing Canva Pro, and any increases in subscriptions correspond 1:1 to our royalty pools and your earnings. Our outlook and forecasts are quite positive.

Justanotherphotographer, I'd love to hear why you think it hasn't worked out as expected? Feel free to reply here, or DM me if you'd like to share details privately.

As mentioned by others here, we offer local currency pricing in some markets and these can be more or less than the $0.35. The values are also affected by forex conversion at that time.

If their "double earnings" are meant only for subs, we're doomed. No sales since 5th of april. Not something, I'm used too.
Unless most of our earnings are now transferred to subs, if that's the case we'll only know on the 8th-10th of May :-/
Correct, the majority of earnings have been transferred over to subs since April 6th. I know it's not ideal that there's no real time reporting for subs. We wanted to launch ASAP, this is something we're keen to look into in the future.

And just to reiterate what's already been posted here, the guarantee applies to your total earnings, it is literally "make at least 2x what you made in March", as long as you don't remove content.

Hi, I'm from Canva :)

Re payment issues:

1. I've heard from the team that March payments via PayPal are delayed due to an issue with FX. An email update will be going out shortly to affected contributors. We're working on making sure you get paid ASAP, and there is no need to contact support.

2. For our contributors on Skrill and Payoneer, you should be receiving two payments (the second one went out today). The sum of these two will reflect the correct amount for March.

Apologies for the inconvenience here. Thank you for your patience and understanding :)

I have more than 10K images there and I was in around top 30 in Canva before the drop last year. I don't see any of this subscription sales.

Hey Deyan, please see my last reply.

You will see subscription sales in the new interface, which is rolling out by next Monday. I can confirm you have subscription sales. Sorry that it's not showing up on the old dashboard.

Hi everyone,

My apologies, I jumped the gun a little bit and communicated a bit too early. The new payment report I linked is going through final stages of our QA/release process, and should be visible either this Thursday or next Monday. It looks like this:

You will be able to see your Photos Unlimited downloads and royalties there and then. Photos Unlimited usages are not reflected in the old dashboard.

Appreciate the feedback that getting contradictory information is not helpful. Originally the plan was quarterly, however we were able to increase the reporting frequency to monthly. The new dashboard that reflects this should be out very soon.

Hey everyone,

I work for Canva on the marketplace side, and I just discovered this forum. Hope it's OK for me to post here, would love to talk directly to you all and share it for everyone's benefit!

You should see Photos Unlimited earnings on the following page: https://www.canva.com/sales

We now report Photos Unlimited revenue shortly after the end of each month. If you switch the date selector to August or a prior month, you should see your Photos Unlimited downloads and earnings. They are paid to you as part of our normal payment processes.

In terms of earnings, I can share that Photos Unlimited revenue is growing by double digits every month, and so should your earnings as well since everything is a 50/50 split.

The royalty per usage is growing as well. For example, Sept $/usage (MTD) is 26% higher than August. As with many subscription products, usage tends to be 'front-loaded', and this is a very new subscription product.

We think Photos Unlimited is only 1% of where it will be. We'd really love it if you choose to stay with us, as we're growing Photos Unlimited and increasing your earnings every month - as the numbers in your account should show. As this is a public forum, I'm not at liberty to share much of our future product and commercial plans, but we're investing heavily in growing your and our earnings. I know some of you have been part of our program since the very inception, and we know Canva wouldn't have been the same without you.

Hope this helps, and let me know if there's anything else I can help with.
