Just got a 59.70 sale of a 4K clip although im not sure if this is the 4k commission or an HD sod/el or whatever.
Has anyone else got such a commission since the price change to verify this?

SS is 30 percent which is 59.70 of $199, so very likely a commission for 4k.

Yes.Remains to be seen whether 4K sales will grow and whether the growing of discounted 4K sales will yield a better revenue in total.I have my doubts.

Yea, same here. Congrats.  I only have a few 4K on SS but glad they are starting to "maybe sell" on a recurring basis. All I need is 50 4K DL's a month and I will be happy ;)

Thank you, but the thing is i already had at least 1-2 4k sales a month there since i started uploading,and i was kind of counting on those 90usd commissions because sod's and el's lately (last 2 months) are nonexistent.Dissolve sells the same if not more 4K for me with the old ss commissions.
Two or three 4K sales a month at ss to me financially is still a major fail,(not to mention close to what i get for selling hd at p5) ,and i dont see why 4k sales should grow anyway.4K is still irrelevant pretty much and price is still high.
And if the price gets even lower the same principle applies,let alone a very likely price restructure on hd.Catch 22, but i like the enthusiasm.
Oh boy, i love stock.

My concern is that everyone else will now do the same price cutting to compete. Same mentality that drove images into the tank.

Thats everyone's concern and it shouldn't be really because it's inevitable one way or another.It may take a different form (like at pond5 for example where a lot of people willingly lower their 4K prices including me lately) but ultimately thats how business is done in this world and we all go with it one way or another.
Still, being enthusiastic about it in public and cheerleading these practices is my major issue (not talking about you of course) because it avoids the detrimental question of  "what is success and for whom exactly" .

If i was in stock and wanted to draw people by my side and not become a hypocrite at the same time (ie:"dudes if we lower your prices more sales will come man,no, for real, -in that tone-") i would do a price drop on 4K and raise the commission (only for 4K) so there is the same earnings for sellers.I would keep this raised commission for as long as necessary until it becomes clear that  4K has indeed started to become relevant in this world.We would see then if the "more sales more growth for both" argument holds water.
Plus it would make every other agency  who drops prices with the "it's good for both" argument look like a clown,and set an example.
Am i dreaming?
Yes.
Is it doable though?
Yes.
Then why?
Thats the real question.
