A month back I got an invitation from Picsastock to upload images. I observed that its not a big player, but decided to upload anyhow. After all they promised 50% commission on every sale and allowed 100 uploads as a good will gesture instead of the initial 50.

1) After I uploaded 58 images , I observed that they were available on the site immediately without any approval.
(This will give entry to even low quality images, which in turn will drive away prospective customers.)

2) After I got the first sale, I noticed that they paid only 6.6% commission, instead of the promised 50%.

3) One staff person was constantly in touch with me all through the process.

4) I wrote back to her asking for an explanation. But no reply received even after 4 days.

5) I had also written to the customer care separately. No response so far.

In the German Stock Photography forum we have also discussed about it after a few photographers have received invitations. None of us had ever heard of this agency. Most have ignored the invitation.

could be a good opportunity for them to chime in, anyway I don't see any exciting stuff over there...
