I've had a few hundred images with Can for a few years, and earned 2-3 bucks every month, pay out once or twice a year (at best). Middle of this month all the sudden $20 in sales. Anyone else see a sudden change at can?

I had two sales for $27 in one week. But I'm with them since march 2009. I think...

Yes, definitely those $20 fotosearch sales help the bottom line.  Canstock went from 1% of my earnings for years to 3% in April :)

I uploaded most of my pictures there (900+) during last two months, but so far, I've collected only a bunch of $0.30 subscription sales. Well, there are some sales at least.

Canstock is starting to do quite well for me right now!
Reached a very good payout this month!

Wow that sounded good, so I decided I wanted 'in'.  I signed up with CanStock and uploaded 20 images to test the waters.  2 weeks later, not a single view on any image.  Absolute zero.

Ok 20 images isn't much, but they're all proven sellers on SS.  And you can multiply zero by any number of images/weeks/months/years you want, and the result is still zero. Payout at infinity.

Guess I'll just delete them and close the account.  Move along, folks. Nothing to see here.

You must be kidding...

I wish I had a dime for every complaint that someone's 'proven seller' was rejected by or wasn't selling at agency x.
To me a 'proven seller' at SS means 100+ sales per month - anything less makes the image an average seller, not a proven one.

Forget sales.  I didn't even get 1 view, on any of the 20, in 2 weeks.

I wonder if this is just another example of a trend I think I'm seeing everywhere - new images go nowhere.

Canstock is very, VERY weak for me. I Uploaded about 400 images (my bestsellers included) a couple of months ago, and have made a whopping $3.15... I make 10 times more at bigstock with similiar portfolio, and about 100 times as much at iStock (I have a 1200 image portfolio there, but I also divided the number by 3 for comparison).

I'm guessing you are a young person? And that's why you have no patience and want instant results? ;)

When I made the post, I didn't take the time to look at where the extra sales were from, it was one $20.00 dollar sale. Other than that one big (relatively speaking) sale, Can stock is a total dud.
