The thing with this model of distribution ( a middleman that secures you an entrance to Getty and other agencies that you can't get into on your own) is that it is a thing of the past. During golden years of macrostock, when these kind of  middlemen popped up everywhere, it was ok for photographers to give them half of the revenue, since they paychecks were huge.
Nowdays, no one can afford to give up on 50%, when earnings are so low.
Working directly with an agency that has strong customer base, like Getty at macro, or Shutterstock in micro,  is still the best solution for a stock photographer.
My opinion is these middleman should cut their provision, since the times have changed extremely. I would sign such an agreement only if middleman's share was 15-20%.
Imagine someone takes 50% of your microstock earnings every month. Would you still be satisfied?

If you get 60% of 50% it ends up pretty much the same as SS taking 66% of your earnings really. What would matter to me is absolute income not %ages. If someone could sell one of my images for 1m even 1% of that would be decent and probably deserved as they would be marketing geniuses ;-). Surely the deal breaker for most would be the exclusivity?

I decided not to submit to them for now. I'm already image-exclusive with Robert Harding and getting some regular sales. No point going exclusive with another agency to complicate matters.

With the quality of your contributors work I'd find it hard to believe Stocksy would ever have refused you :)

Note that the images on Stocksy from ASC are not distributed files from their contributors, but wholly owned content of the business.  So, if you want your work represented by Stocksy, you will need to apply as a member directly.
