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

*hint: DA takes 20% of your money, so make sure you calculate that in the price of what you are selling or consider having them pay you through paypal instead.

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 (however, you do so by using points as a currency in the first place).

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




FAQ



:bulletred: Can I convert my existing points (which are not shown in my 'Earnings' site) to money?
Technically, it is a possibility. BUT DA has a strict rule against people sending themselves points and converting them, so if you do this it might get you banned. Not fun.  help.deviantart.com/927/

: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.

Can DeviantArt still collect 20% of your points/currency asides from the commission widget?

You will have the money/it will be in your bank within 14 days and then you van use it. Basically your money is pending.

Can I convert points that have been gifted to me into money? I don’t have a commission widget for my adoptables so does that mean I can’t convert them to money?

Excuse me but, if you convert your earnings into points, can it be converted back to money?

I found out that you can't. If you convert it, you can use the commission widget, and then it can be re-converted. :3 Thank you so much, anyways! I read the dA rules!
