# PPD Free Earnings Overview

Unlike Pro earnings, Free earnings are paid at a fixed rate per download (the same as Editorial earnings). The given rate is based on the content type submitted, with the current rates as follows:

- Vectors: $5.00 paid per 1,000 downloads
- Photos: $5.00 paid per 1,000 downloads
- Videos: $10.00 paid per 1,000 downloads

# Calculating PPD Free Earnings

To calculate Free Earnings, Vecteezy takes the total number of free downloads a contributor receives for each content type and multiplies this amount by the fixed rate for that content type.

- Total Free vector downloads x $0.005 = amount earned for free vectors
- Total Free photo downloads x $0.005 = amount earned for free photos
- Total Free video downloads x $0.010 = amount earned for free videos
- Amount earned for free vectors + amount earned for free photos +amount earned for free videos = total earned for free content

We use this formula for each contributor monthly to calculate total Free earnings for each contributor.

# PPD Free Earnings Examples

Here are two examples that illustrate Free payouts:

Contributor A:

Receives 10,000 free vector downloads in a month and earns $50.00 for that month

- 10,000 free vector downloads received x $0.005 = $50.00

Contributor B:

Receives 250,000 free vector and 100,000 free video downloads in a month and earns $2,250 for that month

- 250,000 free vector downloads x $0.005 = $1,250 free vector earnings
- 100,000 free video downloads x $0.010 = $1,000 free video earnings
- $1,250 + $1,000 = $2,250 total free earnings
