That thread said "some time this week" at the beginning of last week - but I still don't see it.

I don't know for you all. But I think this is a great way to improve the subs downloads. At least the numbers of account who will download by subscriptions. But at the same time the price increase can recover this situation. I opted out for subs, so I think it can hurt as I continu to be out, but I'm not completely sure

Hi guys,

Price increase is in effect now. Sorry for the delay. Took longer than expected to create the XS files, and we wanted to launch on a Monday rather than a holiday weekend. :)

Enjoy!
-Steve

This is funny! Now I have eps files for 10 credits but you can also buy a jpg for 15 credits.
Do buyers realise they can open an eps file in photoshop and make the size XXXXXXXXXXXL ?  ;D
I did have a few XL sales already!

That's indeed a great move from StockXpert and I welcome the news.

BUT lately I noticed that most of my increasing sub sales (99%) are for L or XL and my decreasing regular sales are most of the time for S or M.

I wonder if some existing users are not converting to subscriptions so that for the price of a couple of XL, or XXL and they can get 25 larger size image using subscription model?

If they don't raise or change the way sub works, I think more traditional users might move to sub, which would turn into less profit us.

What do you guys think?  It's even a bigger problem when you invested in professional equipment like a 21MP camera, of course you don't want to give away anything larger than say 5MP for 30 cents!

Boy, I am loving the new prices.  My total $ today on Stockxpert is roughly double what it would usually be.   Very happy to have received $5 apiece for three XL sales.  :D

Thanks a lot for the hefty raise guys!!

New prices are a treat, but unless subs prices get higher, the new pricing makes subs more attractive for a more frequent buyer.

Will have to wait at least another month before I can see how I like the prices since they rejected my appliacation :(

With one month subs costing just 20 XL size photos, and a year only 150 photos, the whole thing is just a joke. Until 3 years ago, I used to run a small graphic design agency, and we often needed 20 hi-res photos per week. For larger design or advertising agencies, subscriptions at this level equals getting the photos for free. The cost is simply insignificant.

I have to agree with Lisa,  I'm also loving it.  My average price per download yesterday was 1.75$.  I've never got that anywhere else although I expect that the average will gradually go down if more people buy subs. For those of you that opted out the average price per dl will stay high but number of sales will probably go down.

Holy cow!  13% of my income for the month so far was earned yesterday!  Hopefully this signals the end of my downward spiral since subscriptions were introduced.

totally agree with the comments above but I must say I love new prices and my sales suddenly boosted(and today  is my best day of the month) I guess that is side effect of price increase ,which was also the case when IS put the prices up:) I can't complain.but once again yes it would make a lot more sense if they either get rid of the sub system or increase the prices significantly otherwise I don't know how long this dream would last.

Things have been painfully slow for me this month at StockXpert, but I have to say they gave me the "wow moment of the week."  One sale today, XL size, $5.00!   :o

I didn't even realize my 30D 8.1MP qualified for XL size.  At those commissions, the earnings per sale sure make up for the slow volume.

Wow this is unbelievable!
I actually had a XXL sale today....$7.50.
I almost feel sorry for these buyers. Why don't they buy the EPS file for $5.00???

Maybe they don't have Adobe Illustrator.

They do not need Adobe Illustrator, I can open EPS files with Elements, I just have to type in how big I want the file to be, before it opens. But maybe they do not know or do not have even Elements.
