I have about 500 standard vectors and they are performing better on top agencies like shutterstock,  dreamstime and istock. but i have not made any single sale from 5 months on alamy, depositphotos and canstockphoto. should I drop these agencies or waiting and uploading continue. your suggestion will help me a lot. Thanks.

Alamy, depositphotos and canstockphoto are not best sellers, but I have regular sales there with 6000 photos portfolio. Sales will come probably with time and portfolio growth, but don't expect to much. It's your choice to quit or to wait. I like to try different agencies so I find out that some low earners makes regular sales for me (ingram images - 140 GBP BME, zoonar - 150 EUR BME etc.). On Depositphoto and Canstock my best months ever are 40 USD.

CanStock has a grand total of $9.50 on 12 downloads for me in the last 2 years.

DepositPhotos is more than double that! (tongue firmly in cheek...) with $25.48 on 84 downloads in the same time.

I stopped uploading to both of those last Summer, though I have not made any effort to remove what is already there (maybe 2000 images on each or thereabouts).

I have only been with Alamy for less than one year, but have a little under $400 on 15 downloads.  I only get one or two sales a month from them, but they are each over $20 per sale, which would take 60 sales on ShutterStock to equal.  Yes, I keep them, and continue feeding them new material.
