it was a slow start to the year for me there, but the sales have picked up in recent weeks.
in my eyes, they're doing just fine. easy uploads is one of my favourite qualities in a stock site.

Also, take a look at their license, they protect our work better than SS's newest change to the standard license.

Last 2 batches 100% accepted and while sales have never been the best there, they are steady.  Funny how we all perceive sites differently, I much prefer CanStockPhoto to some of the more shady sites that have cut commissions and keep changing things that make it harder for us to make money.

Agree.  CanStockPhoto is still a steady, if not big, earner.  I get a payout every month and no drama or BS.  And yes, Duncan is there even tho he sold to another company a few years back.  I don't remember what company bought them.

Reviews and moderate sales seem stable as usual. No complaints. Beats those outfits that promise you 80% of nothing.

May 2017 update: Has Canstock gone autopilot? No reviews for about a month, folks on the forum complain about not getting paid and Duncan stays silent. What's your recent experience?

I did get a payout recently but they have gone from being one of the fastest places to get reviews to slow and stuff getting stuck in the queue. Not optimistic for their future

Well, that's good to know that you got your payout. Where there's life there's hope.

Sales have always been slow there. They are a rather quiet company but I will say that Duncan has always responded to my emails and been fairly realistic.  I really wish him and Peter were able to team up and have the cash to go head to head with the other micros. They are two pretty honest and fair people when comparing them to the bigger players.  So I stuck with CanStockPhoto even though I only make $20 to $60 a month there.  They pay 50% (as far as I can tell) but they do sort of hide their sales schemes as pointed out in another thread here on MSG.  I know in that case Duncan said they have always done that and it is nothing new....someone just pointed it out and we discussed it here.

I have been with Canstock for 6 years and never had a payout as my account is still only $27. Absolutely pathetic agency.

Not the best paying site, but I've been there for 11 years. Get a payout every month or two.

Right CS is tiny and slow, but with your 750 pictures of birds, flowers and buildings what did you expect from a small agency?

funny story, i found some images of mine on another "stock site" and wrote to them asking about it, response back said they were an affiliate of Canstock. I swear I closed that account 3 years ago! So i go and check and sure, it's still live, and I've got $100 in my account. I removed all the images that shouldn't be there due to exclusivity elsewhere, requested payout, and have now just left it with a few bits and bobs of junk. once I get my payout I'll try again to shut it down.

I closed my account because of the lack of sales, and they wouldn't payout my earning as they were below threshold. So petty, but it did make me extra confident that it was the right decision to leave.

Stopped uploading them. Seems pointless, even too lazy to recover my password after they asked me to confirm my account upon going to another country.
