EDIT3: THIS POST IS NOW OUTDATED ♥ I will no longer answer questions on this post.

EDIT2: GUUUUYS, PLEEEEEEEASE read through the other comments. I┤m 99% sure that your question has been asked AND ANSWERED before. :iconsobbplz: 
EDIT: Not EVERYONE has been given this future yet it seems.
It can take up to 14 days for your money to end up in paypal.




I don┤t know if many people know about this or even how to do it..~♥
THAT┤S WHY IM GOING TO TELL YOU!

How to take point commissions and still earn REAL FRESH MONEY! :iconkissinguplz:

What you need:



Be a Premium Member BETA TESTER
Have a Paypal


That easy!  :iconba-kyunplz:


However if you are going to do this dA takes a part of the money you earn. Around 20 Points on Every 80 points [I think]
Which makes you earn only 60 points even if you sell for 80.
That┤s why I suggest you think that 1 Dollar = 100 points
Instead of 80, that way you won┤t lose anything on it. *w* ~

How to do it!



You need to upload your picture to Sta.sh

Photobucket

Then Click on the Uploaded picture in your Sta.sh.
It should look something like this.

Photobucket


Then you click on the select CATEGORY
It is above the description

Then you should end up HERE

Photobucket

SCROLL DOWN

Until you come to THIS

Photobucket

Here you see down to the left "Generate earnings"
And beneath "Sell downloads as premium content"
Select THAT BOX

Photobucket

And it will look like this!
Here you decide how much to sell your picture for.
As I said dA "takes" 20 points/ 0.20 $ so I suggest to think that 1 $= 100 :points:

If you are selling a piece that is a commission for example I suggest that you crop the picture to the extreme or something until the person has Bought it!
OR make a picture beforehand that says "PAY FOR COMMISSIONS HERE"
You can always change how much it should cost, so you can change it for every commissioner :iconhontoplz:

That way the Da points come to use again for real purpose!
HOWEVER
You cannot withdraw your money to PayPal until you have earned at least 5 $

How do I see my earnings?



SIMPLE!

Photobucket

You go to this box. And down to the right you can see "MY EARNINGS"
Click there!

AND.......... VOILA!

Photobucket


HOPE YOU FIND THIS USEFUL GUYS!
I just figured this out as well, I hope I haven┤t taken anything wrong or explained it wrong!
If so please correct me!


A-and I┤m not good with HTML stuff, so sorry if the pictures are small TAT ~♥

HAVE A LOVELY DAY :iconmahfeelzplz:

I know this journal is old and not valid but I'm just putting this out there for those that want to know 
Where 'dA takes 20 points for every 80 points' was mentioned, well they don't take only 20 pts. They take 20% royalty of the original amounts (so if you sell something for 100 points /$1, you only get 80 points /$.80)

80 points is 1$ though.
But as dA take 20 points for every 80 points/1$. You lose 20 points.
Hence why I added 20 points to make up for it.
So 100 points counts as 1$ instead.

BIG SCAM people are better off paying other deviants directly via paypal if they want to make a donation or buy art.

Totally agree. Plus the added fact that you also need to be a premium member to do that makes it even more disgusting.

XxDaisukeDomainxX Featured By Owner Apr 15, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yes you can. Once your print is bought and all the transfer are done,
you go to your balance and you'll see the number of points/money you have.
Then you can just covert them into points instead to your credit/paypal/whatever.

Needs to be through a commission widget or the download option.
Donations or give points can´t usually be converted to real money. ♥

I know you've said this post is outdated - but I honestly can't figure out anything on my question.
I recently changed Paypal accounts (as I'm an adult now, I not longer use my grandfathers), and I would like my new one to be linked to my dA when I withdraw funds to Paypal.

Is there ANY way to change my email of recipients on dA for my new Paypal?

What can I do if my friend wants to commission me If I gave them a ton of points? Will DA automatically refund them back even if it is a legitimate commission? This is frustrating because it has happened before.
Reply
:iconyamio:
Yamio Featured By Owner Aug 23, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
If it is legitimate it is allowed however dA cannot know that and might take it as you trying to get money of your own points.
qnq;;

As long as you upload the commissions and the like as a "proof" that you actually did something in return they might be more accepting..
But try to stay on the safe side ;;///

I have answered the same question for years now T_____T *literally*

Before you transfer them to Paypal you can´t use them as normal money no.
