It's always been a slow site for sales.

1000 images, each second day 1 sale (0,50 - 2,50$)
Not more. But nice money per download.

I killed my account a while ago. While they were good to deal with, sales for me were so low it was not worth continuing with them.

Me too, but they never removed my images from Fotosearch. You might want to doublecheck and ensure they were deleted when you closed your account. Mine are still for sale there.

So funny, right after I stated what else is new I just got an email of a sale! Only $.52 but better than nothing...

Just got a note from CS. In the TOS they have 30 days to remove my images from other sites. I missed that bit.

I have been averaging between $300 and $400 per month sales at CanStockPhoto in the last 6 months or so. This June is very slow, about half of the sales of June 2013. Don't know the cause of this decline, but sales at CanStockPhoto have suffered serious dips in the past, such as when Google changed their search, and Duncan has found ways to get things back on track. I have always liked CanStockPhoto and found it well worth submitting there. :)

For me also Canstock is low earner. Bu their upload system is really easy so I don't spend much time  upload. From time to time I get a sell a picture for 5-10 $. So it is ok

We just had a really good month at CanStock selling video.  Much better than normal.  Then today I received an email from them telling me that all the still images I just uploaded were rejected for various reasons.  Never had that happen before.  Oh well, I think we made like $3 there this month selling images so I'm not gonna worry about it.

Yeah they are going SS on reviews now. Had a decent month there though, #4 earner in June.

I like CS but July was a total blank - 0 sales. Better to focus on the Top 3.

Don't agree- I had 25 sales with CanStockPhoto this July. Only have about 2,500 images on their site thus okay in my eyes.

when CanStockPhoto first started, i joined them clicking Tyler's ad here. i found out they existed in the very city i was posted. it 's really a small business but anyway, they did not sell much 4 me either, so i fell asleep at the wheel and after many years of slumber, i woke up to delete my account telling them to keep my money for feeding the gulls at the waterfront.
i am not posted there anymore, so i don't know how they are doing or being run. but i would say 4.1% isn't much enough 4 me to do a resurrection shuffle with them or the other site who is also based in my glorious land mass. 8)

I have had that number of sales with a 2,600 file portfolio and I think it's pathetic.

Every other site bar Stockfresh and Alamy can beat that, and in many cases with a much smaller portfolio size. I have had more sales at Canva (still in beta) where I have about 150 images online!

The appeal of CanStock (except for illustrators who seem to do better than photographers there) used to be the occasional Fotosearch sales for much higher prices, but the last one of those (excluding subscriptions) was at the beginning of April (for $15.80) and I have to go back to last year in July and August for the two prior. In other words, they're so few and far between they have little impact.

For the moment I'm leaving my portfolio there, but they're already on the edge as they don't allow opt out from partner sales, so it wouldn't take much for me to reconsider staying

Mostly agree, but GL and Crestock are way worse.

Yea, I am going to clean up some of my sites this year.  As Jo Ann stated CanStockPhoto is on the fence for me, but Stock Fresh is gone, GL is gone and most photos is gone. Just not worth the $2-$10 a month I make there. I am at $20 with CanStockPhoto.

Sorry, I forgot about GL Stock - they are worse (although very fair when they do sell; 52% and decent prices) :)

I've never been with Crestock, so I have no idea (but I've not heard anything good about them recently)
