For almost one year they have closed the possibility to upload.
During this time I have had few sales, not too much bad, but few, even if I had a very little portfolio at them.

Some months ago they finally reopen the upload.
So I have decided to continue to upload again 2000 new images - no more than 20 a day (they not allow more)
Then no one sale no one!

So what??

obviously you aren't the only one uploading their backlog so your 2000 sit with thousands of others diluting your chance of a sale

Yes, I think that you got the point.

I just requested my final payout and once they pay I am closing my account. $1-$2 a month is not worth anything to me, but I do give them a lot of respect and kudos for plowing through tough times and not cutting commissions.  But unfortunately sales aren't there.

I just cashed out there after almost three years with $650, and I've spent a few dollars on things there as well.  No reason not to leave content there and support them.  I buy there because it's so simple.  Just the other day I bought a jpg of a Santa from one of the members here.

I'm leaving my content.  Like others said, they are good people.  I haven't uploaded anything else since they allowed it, but I have not uploaded anywhere.  Maybe if I see some chance of upward movement of income I will bother to resume uploads to some sites.

$30 in 2015 is grim but I will stick with them.  The money from all these smaller sites adds up over the years and I spend almost no time on them.

Did you get to be paid?
I have $42.64 there and I will close my account too.
Last two months, zero sales.

Yes. And they did not hesitate to close my account when I asked.

I'm right there with ya.  I've been looking at the same balance - $42 and change - for over a month.  Not ready to pull the plug yet, but wish they'd lower the payout threshold so I can get my cash.

How can you tell if they close your account?  After I reached payout, I requested payment and asked to have the account closed.  I received my money but a month later had another sale.  I wrote them again saying I had previously requested my account be closed but that it was apparently still open. Never had any reply back.  I went in again today and it looks as if it's still active.

Ignore a request of those who give them the money to me is the limit of lack of respect.
They never answered my email, for this reason among others, I will close my account.

I found it on Seller Information

Request to Close Account

- You may request to close your account after 30 days.
- Earnings of less than $50 at the time of closing will be forfeited.


How many people closed their accounts without withdrawal the value below $50? So, is there a way
to be millionaire with microstock even if the company goes bankrupt with the sellers out.  >:(

That to me, bankruptcy is their case with that attitude.

Ouch.  I didn't realize they played that game.  I'm surprised, because they were nice people to deal with.  Maybe someone else took over the business.

I have $35 there which I'll never get.  I've had 1 sale this year. :-)   If I leave my account open, they'll eventually make another few dollars without paying me anything.  I guess I should just close it.  A sad ending for this company, which started out sounding very promising.

I would try again.  It's only run by a couple of people, so maybe things got lost.  I've never had an issue, and they aren't the type to keep your money.
