Hi all,

I'm a little bit confused about the currencies supported by Adobe Stock and there's little information I can find on the internet.

There are two articles found on Adobe Help which contain fragments of useful information.

Firstly, this article says "Payout occurs in one of these currencies: € / \$ / £ / PLN / 円 / ₩ / SEK / R"

That is 8 currencies.

Secondly, here it says: "For other currencies(than dollars), the following conversion is used: 1 USD = 1 EUR = 4 PLN = 150 JPY = 1,100 KRW."

That is only 5 currencies.

So, my questions are:

a. What are all the currencies Adobe Stock reports sales? Are they the 8 listed at point 1? Or are there any other? I don't believe this information is contained in any of the two articles I linked.

b. What if I sell an item for \$1 in the US and have a payout in SEK(Swedish krona)? I don't see any conversion from dollars to krona at point 2. Is that calculated at the daily exchange rate? Why is there a convention for 5 currencies and not 8?

Please let me know your thoughts/experience, as this is an important issue I'm having.

Thank you.

Thanks for writing. The available currencies are the 8 listed in point one. You are not able to select this as the currency is determined by the location your account was created. The rates that I know are 1 credit = 1 USD = 0.75 GBP = 7.1 SEK = 7.5 ZAR.

Kind regards,

Hi @Mat,

So, from what you're saying the whole conversion sequence for each of those 8 currencies is this one:

1 Credit = 1 EUR(€) = 1 USD(\$) = 0.75 GBP(£) = 4 PLN (zł)= 150 JPY(円) = 1,100 KRW(₩)  = 7.1 SEK(kr) = 7.5 ZAR(R")

Is this correct?

If so, what does the Credit represent? A Fotolia credit?

Are these conversions constant or do they change from time to time?

From what I know, since subscription plans for buyers are in USD the sales are also operated in USD. So, if I'm living in Japan and I earn \$1 for one sale, 150円 will be reported in my account. In Sweden, I'll see 7.1 kr, in South Korea 1,100 ₩. Is that correct?

Anyway, thanks for sharing this info, very much appreciated.

If so, what does the Credit represent? A Fotolia credit? Yes. The photos on Fotolia are sold for a generic currency called “Credits”.

Are these conversions constant or do they change from time to time? The conversion rates don’t change over time.

From what I know, since subscription plans for buyers are in USD the sales are also operated in USD. So, if I'm living in Japan and I earn \$1 for one sale, 150 will be reported in my account. In Sweden, I'll see 7.1 kr, in South Korea 1,100 ₩. Is that correct? All the sales on Fotolia are operated using credits, the credits are changed to currency through conversion requests from the Fotolia members.
