While DT has the worst reviews and lowest earnings from all the top tiers they do make very fast payouts.
Requested this morning and received a few hours later.

Thanks DT!

Yes Wimstime, a very good point. DT is excellent when it comes to being paid.

I still don´t get the bad reviews .... FT block members accounts , delete them from Facebook page to get only positive feedback, don´t pay the earnings when block accounts with " few sales motive" , IS beats the record of low commissions and all bad topics are deleted from forum, SS is in a big reviewer problem and the forum is full of payments problems.....but DT is the agency getting bad reviews....

What i thnk about sales in DT is simple this:

- They pay for exclusive members work and they are the first ones to really buy all the images they accept from exclusive members. Logic, if they pay , they must sell, so exclusive members must have a big advantage is search engine. I am not excluisive and my lowest sale here is better than my best sale in IS .... just to compare from my last IS sale i receive an impressive $0,08. I prefer make one sale one here than 10 sales in IS.

FT is for big portfolio and big contributors , because is the only agency were i never made one sale, the only agency were i am from 6 months and get only 4 views in port. Is the weirds agency in market in my opinion and the reviewers must be some crazy guys thinking "we rule this" . My last submission there they refuse all my 60 images from my D7000 (out of focus) but accept all my vintage files from a Canon 10D ..... in my opinion they work in part time with bad computers and can´t see the difference at 100% view. Off course , best seller members don´t get this reviews i bet....

Conclusion: I am a serious stock photographer just to 6 weeks , until then i upload for fun and to learn this concept , so i don´t have many sales but i have more money made here with 4 sales (1 is a sub) that i have made in IS and FT together in 6 months.

If i was eclusive and upload here 500 files/month (accepted) i will get a payment even without sales..so is far and just and logic that DT has to put their exclusive first.

I am a studio owner and i know very well that companies are in troubles , that sales are down , is not only here in stock business . I know that IS is giving credits almost for free but i don´t accept that because of their politics i must give my files too. I prefer don´t sell and wait for better days. DT don´t pay me for this words, but i can´t see the problem of this agency when they are the first ones to support the community work with $0,20. IS subs are only $0,28 and you must sale something to get this. I won 2,5x less in my last IS sale that exclusive members win here just to represent and upload in this agency.

Just to do a good review! ;))

Best regards.

DT pays well, in comparison, for photos that have achieved higher levels. I like that. My earnings here at DT are second highest amongst the Microstock sites that I contribute to. No complaints from me.

Please post where are those bad reviews. What I´ve seen here are many people who complained, stopped being exclusive than came back saying it was much better when they were here.

Agree on the fast payouts, but I definitely DISAGREE that they have the worst reviews and/or lowest earnings of the top tier.

I find DT reviews to be among the most consistent in the industry. If you understand the quality they are looking for you should have no trouble getting a good acceptance ratio.

As for lowest earnings, out of the top 4 sites, two have gone over a cliff, with many people reporting earnings declining by 50% over the last year or so. By contrast, DT has held its value and continues to produce consistent sales, and my average RPD here is double what it is for all sites combined.

Obviously you have a different experience, but broad generalizations don't apply to everyone.

Then you are one of the few independents that have no issues with reviews/earnings Lisa, I'm happy for you.
The majority of independents will confirm my previous statements but that is not what this topic is all about, it's about payments.

Anyway, may you all have good sales, take care.

Regards,
Wim

GOING EXCLUSIVE . I would be very glad to have your opinion on what your experience has been like since going exclusive here on DT. I have little time to work on my port. so My goal of a thousand images is not here yet. I have just recently started uploading again toward my goal.
Is it worth it revenue wise to go exclusive on DT? Sales are definitely down, but i still always sell in my small portfolio.
Please give me your experience of going exclusive.
thanks,
D

"but that is not what this topic is all about, it's about payments."

Why did you feel the need to mention this then?? No time for for such comments with no back up behind them, poor information and thread article.

@ Bigpressphoto, best start your own thread than to hijack someone else's or check out the boards as it's a very commonly asked and answered question.

@ Wimstime: you claim that the majority of independents would confirm that DT has the worst reviews and the lowest earnings from "all the top tiers". It would be helpful if you could produce the evidence for this.

Do you personally know the "majority of independents" whose views you draw on? If so, how many people is that and what proportion of all independents do they represent? Or did you draw these conclusions from an independent, properly conducted survey? If so, how big and how representative was the sample and which statistics are you using to support your assertions?

The main purpose of this thread was to give DT credit for the fast payouts but if you guys rather want to turn this into another flaming thread then go right ahead, don't count me in though since I have better things to do.
Not one of you exclusives confirmed the positive side of my post about the payouts, straight to the negative side and full on attack ;)

As far as I'm concerned DT admins may lock this thread before this gets out of hand, I have no idea why I bothered in the first place, should have known better.

Signing off...

thankyou sir, for your policeman like behavior, actually exclusivity is spoken about on this thread, and i wanted the opinion of some of the very experienced peeps here. rather than starting yet another thread. You however contributed nothing yourself to the thread other than jumping in and telling me where to get off. Is this your job? I suggest you relax a little, its not good for your stress levels to play troll. thanks
