Why don't increase the level of subscription?
posted by andrews71 - 21st of september, 2013
I think that the price of selling in DT should be reviewed by management. For example, my last 20 picture sold just 4 are with credits and 16 (!!) are with subscriptions at 0.42$ each I can comprehend that we earn on volume and... More...
