uh...$144 a year with 1000 images....you are earning $ .012 per image per month...you are earning one penny a month per image....I am doing slightly better with RPI of 2 cents per month.  worst RPI for any site. 

I doubt that is correct.  They have sales, even if they are few and far between.  They rank in the middle tier consistently, which strongly suggests their RPI is significantly higher than the dozens of "low earners" which people seem to fall all over themselves to contribute to.


Yes, 25 cents with no chance of raise after some sales does make it the lowest in the industry. Really about time to raise that number to 30-35 cents to be more in line with industry standard. 

Totally agree.

In a better world, CS would buy SS, integrate both portfolios, fire all SS reviewers and put CS one instead bmhahahahaha

Everyone gets a bad review batch from time to time.  But if you are consistently having problems with image approval at SS, then the problem is with your submissions.  If you want to blame SS and have all their reviewers fired, then plan on lots more rejections and not many sales.

somethingpret... you're the same person that is trying to convince contributors to upload to Crestock on a different thread?....Hummmmm... :P...oh sorry write to them to convince administration to give .38 vs .25 per sub on one of the worst acceptance sites in the market...lol

Awesome catch.  Well done m@m.

Wherein lies the "awesome catch"? My point of view here and on the other thread about Crestock is pretty clear. I dont support Crestock nor Canstock because of the 25 cent subs....

Oh, so you weren't supporting Crestock?  My bad then.

I still think you are way off though, once you factor in credit sales at Canstock.  My experience at Crestock was that most of my sales were subscription based.  Just the opposite at Canstock.  I hardly consider it a subs site.

IMHO, criticizing an agency for their sub royalties, while asking the members of this forum to contact the administration of another and bargain for higher sub commissions still sounds strange to me...support or not, still questionable :P

I don't get it either. In both cases you are criticising the agency for low sub commissions. In fact writing to them rather then just doing it here behind their backs makes a lot more sense.
What's wrong with writing to an agency you feel is low balling us and letting them know?
Somethingpretentious' attitude seems pretty consistent as far as I can see

I love it when absolute strangers stand up for me! thanks!

to djpadavona and m@m: let this rest - we largely agree...And if I was support Canstock or Crestock, I would definately also go for Canstock. I realize that Canstock is mainly a pay pr download site and crestock mainly a subscribtion site - I know this from the "junk images" I still have there from my earliest microstock days. Canstock also give a resonable pay pr download (attributed to fotosearch partner) whereas Crestock is ridicoulosly low...I just chose to not accept 25 cent under any circumstances....so im not uploading to Canstock nor Crestock, nor am I opted in for partner programs at iS. Very consistant in fact:-)

cheers!

Well I figured if absolute strangers can attack you on forums an anonymous defence may go some way to balancing the cosmos. ohm   ;)

My apologies once again SP.  The insinuation was you had supported Crestock in another thread, and I bought it without checking things out for myself.  Guess I redefined "Assume."  Best of luck, and I hope you choose to support Canstock in the future.  I like their style.

I think that many of us have some particular agency that is not lucky for us though we do our best.
I am at Canstock for few weeks and this month is for me better than Dreamstime so far. (Yes, I don't have a luck with DT but I won't give up.)

Also count me in the Pro-Canstock group.

Looking at my past few days of sales and there's only a few $.25 commissions in the bunch.  Mainly .75, $1, $2, etc. 

Very fast and fair acceptances.  Very easy submitting process.  All interaction I've had with management and service folks has been a pleasure. 

And I've said it before, percentage-wise, CanStock is probably showing more growth for me than any other site lately.  They're about to eclipse BigStock for me and take the number 5 slot.

If your stuff sells well at the other micros, you stand to do quite well at CanStock.
