I have a good experience, but they accept not too much compared to the others agencies.

Years ago I submitted two selections - a range of things that weren't as "stocky" as most of my stuff. They rejected them all - at the time they didn't give any reasons. I stopped submitting as I had no reason to repeat the experiments without some further idea of what they were after.

To their credit, a few weeks later they contacted me to see how I was faring as a new member of the site. I replied about the two trial batches and no idea of what their wishes or criteria were and that it seemed not to make any sense to upload more.  Never heard back.

I've never heard anyone boast of great sales there - so they could be and folks keep quiet about it, or they could just be very niche and very small. They've been around for a long time though, so they're obviously selling to someone :)

I submitted once a collection of 100 pictures in two ore three batches and they accepted exactly one of them.  :D

I just had a look. The first thing that struck me was that they have images which clearly would not have model releases, but they don't mention that they are for editorial use only.

Only 5 photos approved, almost 7 Euro in earnings.  I haven't uploaded for ages but will start again as they might be a good place for the mobile phone photos I have on Stockimo.

I have a few images there that would not have been considered stock anywhere else, but it never seemed worthwhile to produce content for them. I'm actually still not clear how they work since other members can download your images for some type on internal credit system at no cost. Never quite caught on to the culture of the site so gave up after a few weeks.
