Dreamstime Sale Strategy
They offer subscription plans that are based on image purchases. This work based on the quality and quantity of the image downloaded. For instance
Download a minimum of 5 and a maximum of 10 of level 2 images daily. This subscription can be weekly, monthly, 3 months, 6 months, or yearly. The subscriptions are flexible and cheap when compared to Credits purchases but not transparent.
Buying with Credit Points
The price of a photo is determined based on the amount of purchase of that photo. So if there are more purchase activities on a photo it’s very likely its credit price and the subscription price will increase.
Credits can be purchased in packages or through a custom selection starting from prices as low as 99 cents to $1.25 per credit depending on the package. The custom selection has a minimum credit purchase of 110 credits at 93 cents.
Credits purchased allow you to purchase anything from images to even licenses. Although it’s expensive, if you are looking to buy a few images and you want detailed information about the cost, this is the best option.
