It took 3 months to make it happen. Unfortunately it's Fotosearch subscription...

Congrats on the sale.  Hopefully your next one will come quicker, and maybe even be one of the $19 fotosearch credit sales :)

I got 300 files there. After lessons with Crestock, FeaturePics, MostPhotos and YAY I am not trying to upload whole portfolio until I got substantial sales. They can go months without any downloads.

Yesterday, I had my first sale there too, after I uploaded my portfolio there a few weeks ago. It is also Fotosearch subscription but it's a start :)

I had a couple of 30 cent subscription sales a few weeks ago. Nothing else though, but only have 40 images there. I've seen my images on sale at  fotosearch for $99. Kind of weird to see my microstock pictures on sale for that price.

Sales are really picking up for me. I would say double if not more.

I also noticed an increase in earnings. not in sales, but the number of the 19 or 20 dollar sales from fotosearch has increased at a significant amount.
I have about 2200 images at canstock, and at the last month I earned the same money I earned the last 5 months before.
I hope its not just a coincidence....

Whats up with "Allow Enhanced License" checkbox?    It checks itself???  I forgot about it first and went back to do it.  Already done!  Did I miss anything?

It comes up unchecked here. I have to check all boxes. I would prefer they had a check-all on top. If you want to be fast, you can easily click the 'exclusive' box under it by accident. Also, the categories seem to be gone totally. It looks as though they made the categories optional. In fact the only thing you have to do is check extended and attach MRF.

I wish they'd remember the extended setting, like DT does. Still better, make it default. I don't grasp why you should offer an image without an extended license.

you can set this in your preferences - just click the 'preferences' link from the left menu , then scroll down look for Liscencing you will find this:
Sets the default licensing preference for all new uploads. Use the "Set All" button to update all your images with this setting.

this feature has been there since enhanced was introduced - hope that helps.

Cheers

Sure! Thanks! There are a couple of typos in the mrf management too, but it's not that important since the buyers won't see it. One is "caucaisan" instead of "caucasian". It would also be handy to be able to remove models with no images attached. I made a couple of mistakes and they are duplicate. No big deal though.

Yeah, They comes up unchecked as default, but if you dont check em and submit, they turn up CHECKED on the pending section :D

It seems like the auto category option is not working anymore. I check it when I click on Process Files but none of the categories are filled. Anyone noticed the same?

Yes, also the keywording. They got accepted anyways. I figure they abandoned categories...

It's great to know that we don't' need to do categories anymore! I always thought all sites should do this.  Thank you CanStockPhoto! :)

uploaded around 577 files a month ago. 62 views and 2 sales for a grand total of 80 cents... got suckered in with the "fotosearch" hype. Shame on me   :-[

feels like the photos.com deal without the sales.

Ive had about 20 images there for a year, earning 2$.   Uploaded 160 more a few day ago.  Sold one immediately.  One of the old ones >:(

I have close to 3,000 images at CanStockPhoto and I signed up about a year ago. I have hit two payouts and I think they were within the last three months. Im glad I stuck it out, I got off to a slow start but I can really see things picking up.

Well, using a typical search I didn't find any canstock/fotosearch images in the first 3000 results. My mouse was tired after that. However, If you sort by price low to high they show up. Did they just change something there (fotosearch)because I could have sworn they were offering subs last week??? Maybe it was a just a bad dream. haha

I agree.  Love the new upload system!  Wish all the sites would implement something similar... :)

Hey cdwheatley,

Regarding Fotosearch sales - it can take some time for your new uploads to migrate to Fotosearch from CanStockPhoto. So while your photos may be approved on X date, they may not appear on Fotosearch for up to a few weeks.

Also, Fotosearch is still in the testing phase and is not showing CanStockPhoto images to all customers. So depending on what group you are randomly put into when you visit their site, you may or may not see any CanStockPhoto photos at all. I think that should explain the confusion on your follow-up visit.

Hope that helps. You have some great images, I'm sure they will do quite well. I'm looking forward to seeing more of them.

Cheers,

Duncan

Thanks for the vote of confidence  :)

I hope it works out well for everyone. I'll try to be patient.

Woohoo!
Got my first sale on CanStock this weekend!
Ok, it was a subscription sale, but awesome nonetheless.
Only been here for 3 weeks!

Let the sales start rolling in now!
 ;D

Don' be too optimistic. After an x-tended license on Feb 17, just 3 subscription sales and the last one was on March 02. Seems the Photos.com channel got stuck...

Its now possible to see other users statistics ( may have been before, I found it now ) . So I checked a few Arcur (Wacker) and Andres.  Its not looking good.  What they have here in dl:s is what they get at other places in a few days, I guess.

  Wheres the Explosion were waiting for...?
