I've asked this question in the comments of a previous thread, but I'm going to ask again in a separate thread after finding more information.

How do paid comfort+ upgrades get credited in terms of points+status? Going to the end of the booking process and reading the T&Cs I find

> "Upgraded tickets are eligible for additional mileage, MQM, and MQD accruals due to the selection of Delta Comfort+ TM or First/Delta One and associated fare classes, and the increase in base fare or carrier imposed surcharges paid in connection with your upgrade. All SkyMiles program rules apply to SkyMiles program membership, miles, offers, mile accrual, mile redemption and travel benefits, respectively."

which I interpret as being credited the equivalent to what you'd get buying a Comfort+ ticket outright (as for why I'm not doing that, my employer books the cheapest fare available, but those status credits are too sweet to miss out on). I imagine this should apply to velocity as well as skymiles, but it's hard to find any info on it.

Anyone got experience with this?

Your query seems to about SkyMiles in which you have posted within the community for Velocity (Virgin Australia) reward program.

If you are crediting to Velocity, then you will earn points and status credits as per your original ticket (prior to upgrade) https://experience.velocityfrequentflyer.com/partners-offers/airlines/delta-air-lines

If your query is in relation to SKyMiles you need to ask in the appropriate community / a mod to move your post to the correct community.

From experience, you earn based on original fare purchased. Example from last year:
LGA>ORD: purchased economy, then purchased comfort + = 15 Velocity status credits
ORD>LGA: purchased comfort + = 30 Velocity status credits
