I have had about 50% increase this year over last year, as well last year was about 50% over the previous year.  Glad to see the growth!  But 50% of not much is still.... not much.  They may actually pass FT and BS for me this year.

My sales at CanStockPhoto have been gradually increasing for several months. Now my October is already ahead of Sept and almost as much as Oct of 2012. Good to see this kind of growth!

I had one $25 dl this month on CanStockPhoto which almost never happens. Other than that I am not seeing what you folks are seeing in terms of growth.

Jan-April of this year were good but since then it's been very slow.  My monthly average so far this year is less than last year and this month is going to drag it down further, so it is decreasing even though portfolio size has increased by more than 10%.  I'm glad to see others having success there and hope it picks up but for me it's been very slow the past few months.

I can't be bothered to upload anymore. They are picky with their reviews as well as not getting me a single sale for months. Waste of time. I wouldn't put Canstock middle tier, I would put them in low earners.

The one word I would not use to describe Canstock is 'picky' :)

Great for you, Ron. For me I have made about $3 there this month. I am very close to killing CanStockPhoto. Simply never have any sales worthwhile there.

You should with your niche underwater images.

However, I had a very slow 3 months, and then October picked up and November off to a good start.

How many images do you have?

Thats crazy, how can you not have sales? Maybe you can ask Duncan and see if there is a glitch, you might get a canned response but you never know.

Payouts coming at least once a month. Not much, but better than a poke in the eye.

Well I don't get it. They turn down some of my best images on other sites (SS/IS) I have 295 images with them so should be seeing more sales.

I dont think it was luck, it was one buyer looking for 2 specific images, and I had what he wanted. The EL and the XXL Tiff is for the same image, and he bought two similar images, with an EL.

Nothing against you :) but whenever you start such a thread my sales dry up.  :)

I had similar experience at 123 as well.

Back to the topic - I had few sales and one for $4. Surprising part was that the $4 sale was for a picture that was accepted only by this site. I didn't even bother to upload this image to my Symbio site
