Convert DA POINTS to REAL MONEY - Tutorial by ms-villeroy Convert DA POINTS to REAL MONEY - Tutorial by ms-villeroy
Feel free to donate if you liked this tutorial <3

Download for full view! ^ u ^

Apparently this is kind of an issue here on DA, so here's a short tutorial on how to convert DA Points into real money. <3

If you use this feature you should make sure use the 100p = 1$ system when selling your stuff (adoptables, commissions, etc.) because otherwise you lose quite some money (you do so by using points as a currency in the first place).

I hope this helps!

Feel free to ask questions and distribute this tutorial in any way you like. <3


:bulletred: (!!) Can I convert my existing points (which are not shown in my 'Earnings' site) to money?
Technically, you can. But DA has a strict rule against that so if you do this it might get you banned from DA. I personally wouldn't do it.

:bulletred: (!!) Can I convert my existing points (which are not shown in my 'Earnings' site) to money by giving them to a friend and asking them to purchase my stuff (so it goes to my 'Earnings)?
The clever type are we? Yes, technically you can. But still, it might get you both banned from DA. I personally wouldn't do it.

This is really helpful! and you have to be a premium user to do this?

Apparently not, you can also do this with a non-premium account. Just try it :) It's pretty easy!

1. Crea algo que creas que la gente quiera comprar. Ej. Adoptables

Si no te gusta usar el "commission widget" (por razones obvias, como 20% de tus ganancias siendo reclamado por DA) también puedes usar este método para vender comisiones. Solo sube una foto de el estilo que estas ofreciendo (headshot, fullbody, etc.)

2. Ahora vamos a la parte importante. Marca las dos cajitas que se encuentran a la derecha ("Premium Content", etc.). Luego haz click en "continue".

3. Se supone que ahora puedas ver esta cajita ("Sell for:"). Escoge un precio.

Despuez de hacer esto podras ver un botón de compra ("Purchase Button") al lado de tu deviation. Los compradores deben hacerle click a este botón para poder pagarte. Lo único malo de esto es que no hay manera de saber quién te ha pagado usando el botón (solo recibes un mensaje que te notifica que alguien ha utilizado el botón para pagarte).

4. (Esto lo cambié ya que DA cambió su formato) Para comprobar cuánto has hecho y convertir esos "points" hazle click al menu que dice "shop" al lado de deviantART.

5. Ve a tu "earnings page". Ahí es donde verás tus ganancias que podras convertir en dinero. Ten en cuenta de que no puedes "legalmente" convertir los "points" que te han donado o regalado.

6. Podrás ver tu balance de "points" a la izquierda de la página. Hazle click a Retirar por PayPal ("Withdraw by PayPal"). Necesitas una cuenta de PayPal para poder hacer esto.

Tienes que esperar un total de dos semanas para poder retirar tus ganancias. Necesitas por lo menos $5 para poder retirar (DA no te dejará retirar menos de eso). Incluso, DA te cobrará $1 por retirar si no tienes "Premium Membership".

¡Espero que te haya ayudado!

What if you win points from art contests ? Are you allowed to convert it or is it only if you sell ?
