This site appears to be a "midstock" or macro site.  I searched for a few images and prices range from $10 to $340.

They only give a 20% commission (or 30% if you have over 300 images).

Also, there aren't many images in the database yet.  I searched for pet, dog, and cat and received 0 results.  I searched for flower and received 1,044 results.  I searched for business and received 1,757 results.

To compare, DT has almost 104,000 results for flower and 183,000 results for business.

I don't feel good about supporting sites that only give a 20% commission (IS is the exception), so I will be passing on this one.  Not when most other competitors are paying 50% or more.

But I'm sure there are many contributors that are waiting to join yet another site.

Heaven help the poor customer of this site. I took a short tour (first 5 or 6 pages) under "recent" images. I saw 80% absolute garbage. Ever have to sit through a rank amateur's two hour slide show from his tour of Europe? Exactly. Besides really badly exposed shots and worse compositions the subjects were selected with no rhyme or reason that I could see.
I don't mean to demean any other shooters, but WOW.  Most of those contributers deserve to be put out of their misery. You wouldn't want your images to be surrounded by this dreck. A great example of accepting anything that comes slithering under the door. Maybe the reviewers we often complain about aren't so bad after all.
