     My  first  sale  was  for  $9.73.  It  was  a  small  (imagine  what  a  larger  size  would  have  brought.  Keep  on  giving  me  sales  like  that  and  they'll  be  my  no.  1  agency.  They  jumped  to  no. 2.

My highest there was for $25 and I've had several between $10-$20 - rare but nice.  Good for you to start out with a nice one.

Got a couple of those sales ($12,60 and $8,00) in the first months of uploading there. These are a real encouragement to continue uploading. My highest there was $22

LOL, cherish this sale because your next 100 may be 25 cent subs!

(But seriously, CS seems to be improving just slightly in 2012 isn't it?)

My return per DL there is averaging $1.08 so far this year and $1.33 lifetime.  The $1.33 puts it ahead of all the major sites that get decent DLs - the only ones higher for me are featurepics, Veer and Alamy where overall sales are lower (although maybe picking up at Veer).  Of my last 10 sales at CS, only 3 were subs averaging $1.19 per DL.  In contrast, at SS this month 95% of my DLs were subs giving an average of $0.43 per DL.  Of course, I've had 22 times more DLs at SS than CS so far this month so overall revenue is 9 times higher.  But CS has a decent return and I like the low volume of subs - they are my #5 agency for overall revenue, after 123 but ahead of FT.  Well worth the easy upload process.

Just been and had a look and I have got some higher ones from Distribution Regular sales but so few and far between that I had forgotten about them.

If you look at the payout schedule at Canstock you will see that these distribution sales pay a royalty of 20%.

While I do like to get those, I wouldn't call that "generous".
