After being on the site for nearly 18 months and with a very small portfolio, they reject all my stuff I have finally sold 2 images. It's probably going to take another 3 years to reach payout.

... seems like a waste of time to me - why are you bothering to post there? Perhaps you'd be better off spending that time 'schmoozing' with a better income source.

I (try to) regularly spend some spare time (yeah, right) at IS, revisiting the keywording on images that aren't selling well, and looking for trends in the stuff that sells.

A year and half into it, with not only 17 high quality pictures, after almost 600 views, no sales, so last month, I emailed them to cancel my account, it appeared it's been cancelled, but they did not even send you a confirmation.
I guess it is a waste of time.

Sharply done I had forgotten all about Image Vortex and that I had images on the site until this morning when I had the emails informing me of the sales. I only have 11 images on the site, maybe some more will sell over the next 5 years or so and I will get a payout, I doubt that I will ever upload anymore images to them.

I use IV more as a macrostock (maybe midstock?) site.  I got two sales there, but they paid reasonably well.  I plan to add more of my macro stuff there, when I have time.

I've set my prices on everything to $150, so even if I just have one sale, that would equal a payout  ;D
Call me a greedy *insult removed*, but someday, somebody might just think the picture is worth that price  ;D
And seeing that you all have hardly any sales, with no payouts, I'm not really missing out on anything with my strategy.
And their HIGH rejection rate just peeves me off.

Wow I could not believe my eyes when I got a sale at Imagevortex.
A small web image sold $24.50 if which I get 70% (= $17.15)
I uploaded this image in 2005 and it has had a whopping of 2513 visits.

I'm still blown away by this :)

I had plans of resuming uploading, but the site seems so dead I thought it might be a waste of time.  I haven't sold anything in over one year (had two sales in total).
