Shoot! Had I known that was the trick I would have set my asking price around $1,000 per pic thus netting $750  :D

The same thing happened to me. I had three sales after first uploading around xmas 2011.  That's not good.  They are very friendly and the site looks good but now it's time to" show us the money."

I think now is the time to start asking them if this is a waste of our precious time in uploading our great images.  Start  showing us some views and buyers.

Kind of reminds me of that song . . .  "Nothing from Nothing" by BILLY PRESTON


Nothin' from nothin' leaves nothin'
You gotta have somethin'
If you wanna be with me
Nothin' from nothin' leaves nothin'
You gotta have somethin'
If you wanna be with me

I'm not tryin' to be your hero
'Cause that zero is too cold for me, Brrr
I'm not tryin' to be your highness
'Cause that minus is too low to see, yeah

Nothin' from nothin' leaves nothin'
And I'm not stuffin'
Believe you me
Don't you remember I told ya
I'm a soldier in the war on poverty, yeah
Yes, I am

I, too, had a few sales in the beginning and nothing since.  I hope AYCS is a success because they've been very pleasant to deal with and I like their business model and the web site design.  (OK, I'll admit that the model release functionality could be brought into the 21st century.)

Same here... a few sales right out of the gate and nothing since then.  I have two theories:

1. when we upload, since there are very few people uploading, our pics make it to the front page, so they get a lot of views (well, a lot for AllYouCanStock.com, anyway).  That gives us our best shot at some sales.  Then we fall off the front page and no one sees our stuff.

2.  Didn't the site owner admit that he himself is buying some pics for promotional or other use?  Could it be that he's buying some stuff from each of us to get us excited so we spread the good word and keep uploading? There's no downside for him until he has to make payouts (we have to reach $25).  If things really pick up and we get over $25 with sales from real customers, he can afford to pay us at that point.  Until then, no one gets paid and he's not out any money.

I'm almost sure that theory no. 2 is correct.

I'll tell you guys one thing though, I'm not going to be as patience with this one as some other dead beat sites I've being carrying for years waiting for a miracle to happen, if in 6 month time they've not produce some steady sales I'm pulling the plug on them, and could not care less how easy the site is to upload too or how nice the people that work there are...had enough of NICE AND EASY but no HONEY!

But all of the early sales happened before the $25 payout limit was in place.  I've already received all my money from those tantalizing early sales.

I had a few sales the first 3-4 days of uploading (back in November 2011), and nothing since. I am definitely of the opinion that the owner is buying images from new contributors in the hopes of getting them excited and dumping their entire portfolio on the site. Its an interesting strategy, but so far I don't think its working. There are over 100k images on the site, and only 4 images have two downloads.

I still upload periodically in the hopes that one day this site will get some better traffic, but I only upload the images that other stock sites didn't want. I have never had a rejection at AYCS.

at this point in time AYCS has only over 100,000 images - that is basically the ground floor in stock photography.
I suspect when they get closer to 500,000 images a few sales will start to trickle and nothing regular til they have at least 1M images in their databank.
Then again, having images is not worth a whole lot unless they make some good connections with regular buyers - this takes skillful marketing.
I am hoping the best for them, since they have started out with favorable commission for the donators... I am willing to give them a year to see how the trend is going, then I will decide what to do if anything.
