Haven't heard a lot about Cutcaster in a while- anyone getting sales? I had one back in Feb of this year...

I had one this month.  First one in about a year.  Can't say I expect much with a small port but a little more a activity would be nice.

When I started contributing there I had hoped that they would succeed but I have never had more than the odd random sale there so when they started with random block rejections i stopped submitting altogether.

Stopped uploading after a couple of sales misreporting and payment problems. Gave them a second chance after the first time, don't have the time to constantly audit my sales there to make sure their database is working properly.

+1.  After initially uploading around 150 images there as a test I stopped for  a couple of years due to no sales - they were the only site I was on with no sales at all.  I had a couple of small sales towards the end of last year and a larger one in January so thought maybe they were coming to life and started uploading again.  However, after too many rejections and no more sales I stopped - with a rejection rate higher than SS they aren't worth the effort.  These low-earning sites need to have: 1) a decent commission rate of at least 40% (CC is OK there); 2) an easy uploading system (CC is OK there as well as I recall); and 3) fast, reasonable reviews (CC fails there).  You can't be picky about images when you don't have sales or it's not worth the effort of uploading there.  That's why I no longer upload to CC (too picky), Yay (almost no sales), Crestock (random reviews, few sales, too low commissions), and iS (too complicated for uploading and no ftp).  However, I have kept up with featurepics, GL, photodune, pond5, etc., because uploading is easy, reviews are fast and reasonable and the level of sales justifies the effort.  Hopefully CC can turn it around but I won't hold my breath.

Other than photodune which I never uploaded to you seem to have stopped uploading to exactly  the same sites as I have and for exactly the same reasons.

I uploaded about 500 images four years ago just to see what might happen and made enough lolly to buy a pair of cheap socks. Closed and long forgotten.

After a year of not uploading there I suddenly had one sale, the first in over a year. Thought to give them another chance but most of my files were rejected: the ones that were accepted elsewere and had many sales.
I guess they have no idea what they are doing there?

In 2 years, Cutcaster earned less than SS does on an average weekend day.  :-X

I only send them images, because to remove them I'd have to change my automated uploading process... but next time I tweak it, Cutcaster shall go.

$11.04 sales on CC so far this September. I had $38 in August, so this month is slower. That is pretty much true for all sites for me though. September sales usually are a big improvement over August, but it is not happening this year.

One wonders how they manage to stay afloat without any sales? How do they get their revenue? Are they making a profit at all?

I love the ease of uploading to Cutcaster. I was in hope they would turn into a good site.  I guess not so much. I have been with them for  four years and only have  $ 35.00 bucks in sales with 2000 images. Not sure how they stay in business assuming they are an honest group reporting sales?

I had some issues with the sales reporting so stopped uploading. Sales are close to non existent

Decided to give them another try and uploaded a handful of images earlier this month, after a long break. Fine images, which sell regularly. Quite a few of them were rejected: "They were not what they are looking for". Guess that should be the other way around - I've ceased uploading again, they're not what I'm looking for. A pity.

No wonder they aren't getting many sales if they are rejecting good sellers - sounds like they are pursuing the Crestock arrogance philosophy

I used to sell there buy nothing since November 2017.  I had forgotten about the site, so thanks for the reminder, as I had just over the $50 payout there.  I wonder how they keep going?
