One of my images was just sold for 5 cents. How could this be?

I haven't signed for exclisive yet, besides at the silver level I should've received at least 10c bonus.

Sounds like a question for Support. I'd send it fast in the event they have some math error in the code and need to fix it before the thing gets out of hand.

eww! thats really disturbing! everyone else is bragging about their 60¢ downloads, and you get a 5¢ one! 5 cents is so 2002

I think it comes from the fine print in the new agreement that states that:

"Anyone who has a username starting with 'A' or 'B' will only be entitled to a 5¢ royalty irrespective of the download size. This is to compensate for the advantage their name receives from being at the beginning of the alphabet"



Yes, this is a joke...

Seriously, contact support. They'll be able to tell you what happened.

That sounds like a mixture of old and new credits. 2 old at .50 and 1 new at 1.00 = .10 + .10 + .20 = .40.

Thats strange, some little math bug there. 50% of my new sales are with the new pricing scheme. It was a nice surprise to se $0.60 as the royalty for the large downloads.

I hope support can figure out about your 5 cents.

My downloads have been almost non existent since the changeover. I did have one large bitpass download. Royalty= 0.00 I've already e-mailed support. I happened right about the time the change was taking place I think.

Lise, support's checking into it. It might help if you contact support and let them know it happened to you and the file number. Sometimes it's easier to tract down a glitch when you have more than one error, better to establish a pattern.

FYI : Right now, I had a download of a medium image with a revenue of 40 cents ( The proof the new system may work properly in some cases) for new credits. Unfortunatly the exclusivity aggreement has not been validated yet. Hope it will workout for you all ...
