I just found that I had 23 sales yesterday, all marked as "Distribution Subscription" and paying $0.30 each. Some images were sold multiple times.

I typically have nothing close to 23 downloads in a whole month, so this is rather special.

Anyone else having seen anything like that in the last few days? Anyone already know where this might be coming from?

I had 6 - I wonder if there was some accounting glitch from the past that got "corrected" yesterday?

It'll take more of the $15 distribution "regular" sales to make any real uptick in Canstock earnings (those appear to have dried up to a trickle). 30 cent subs is noise - even if it's fraud and they claw it back :)

Just when I thought CS was a mummified corpse 3 sales made a total of $0.90 Distribution Subscription sales.

almost the same as a full month's normal sales  :'(

I had few "distribution subscription" sales (0.30$ each) and one 19.80$ "distribution regular" sale.

Strange, but I like it. :)

Perhaps a distributor has just reported results for a lengthy period to CS.

That would be my guess.

Same here. had a couple of distribution sales last december and now again. Guess, they collect the sales in Canstock one or two month and publish the sales all at once.

And again - lots of sales, not only distribution sales, sales in generally. This month is my BME on Canstock, and February has just begun!

I have been having a lot of distribution subs this month, not just one day, but a few almost every day. Not that it is a lot in the grand scheme of things, but on the order of the same amount as the previous 4 months added up.

Anyone else - is there a new "partner"? someone selling them for big bucks and we get subs?

Wouldn't it be easier (and faster, more correct finding answer) to ask the source? :)

Christmas motifs are rather rare for me for this season. Perhaps a larger agency plans in advance.
22 sales within two minutes.

This has been happening for some time now.  The sales get reported all at once, so you'll see a mass of sub sales appear all of a sudden, once a day (I see them around mid-morning and have come to look forward to this boost each day).  For me, these sales have pushed CanStockPhoto into Tier 2 range again (and for the record I see Tier 1 as SS on its own, and Tier 2 is FT, DT, 123, DP, BigStock and CanStockPhoto all earning about the same amount these days).

Canstock has been very strange.  It really dried up beginning around last July and Jan-Feb were abysmal.  I had no DLs there at all from Feb 18 - March 10, and I can't remember having such a large break with no DLs there ever.  Then all of a sudden the taps were turned on beginning March 11 and I have had more DLs there this month than any month in the past 5 years - about 3 times an average month in less than two weeks.  Almost all subs so $$$ is only about the average from last year but I will take it.  Either they have suddenly had a major marketing success or they had computer problems that delayed previous sales from reporting and these are all past sales just showing up at once.  I am hoping for the former but I suspect it is most likely a reporting issue - they probably hired some programmers from iStock.

I hope they took on another distributor and it's a good one.
