I just had a look at my rejections and the last two were for pictures of piles of old Greek coins. Rejection reason: banknotes must be partially obscured to thwart forgers.  There weren't any banknotes in it, of course (and any forger churning out counterfeit Greek drachma coins is going to struggle to make a living).

hahahaha. and surely they'll get a physical copy of a bank note rather than using a stock photo?

Talked to canstock at one point because they wanted a property release for the White House?

Told me that their lawyers were requiring it.

I am a lawyer and have done copyright work and could not figure out how they needed a property release for the White House.  Lousy legal advice means more rejections.  Think that is the real explanation as to why they are rejecting so much and also have low sales.

Just got a email informing me that some files I have had in my portfolio around 6 months have been accepted on checking the batch on non-descript buildings I did submit all rejected for property release.

Quite a few people selling "ancient coins" to tourists when I was there ;-).

They only seem to sell old images.  I stopped uploading new images a long time ago.

But those new images will eventually become old images.

Lowest earner and one of the strictest. What a bad combination.

If you are getting mass rejections what has that to do with CanStocks financial status?

Perhaps your quality isn't good enough or they don't require the kind of things you produce.

new uploads go onto a hard drive on their privately owned servers, with no rental fees for disk usage

approved content goes out to a CDN which they have to pay a daily / monthly fee per megabyte

if they stop accepting new submissions, people think they are going out of business

if they approve new content, they have to pay more in CDN fees

that is how I know they are having financial problems.

Thanks! Now it makes sense.

I stopped uploading there. Rejections were absolutely random and annoying.

Removed my port there a few months ago, and feel better knowing that they don't have my files anymore.

You should send them an email:

''Exciting news!
After running a few tests with our new AI-generated sales report, your agency has been selected to have all my files removed.
This new opportunity will allow your team to have less files to reject and more time for a decent lunch break.
You will also retain 100% commission of all the unsold removed files on your platform.
I sincerely believe this new venture will benefit you, me and your customers.
...''

There are all sorts of reasons...pure speculation.
