although is is another pita, at least their reviewer has spent more than a minute per photo when they isolate an area to explain to you the reason for their rejection.

They actually showed you??? I'm with FD....I've only gotten that from iStock. At Veer it's called mass rejections with all the same reasons in the same batch.
is = istock. sorry.

I have images from July 6th that still haven't been reviewed. Kind of kills any motivation I had to upload more...

I've no reason to join in and complain with you - all of my dash for cash submissions have been reviewed now, and out of 427 only 2 were rejected. No changing of rules or review behavior to be observed when I was getting near the 400 mark. Never received an update email on the earnings after the first one, though.

Oh, I might add: not a single sale yet either.


Fags resting on the ends of sofas, FD?  :P

I keep having rejects there but they changed reasons a bit. "although the shot is technically sound, the model looks messy and clothing and/or makeup are outdated or sloppy and won't appeal to Veer customers". As for now, they selectively rejected most of my best sellers over sites, and accepted some crap. Just like before. A waste of days uploading since they don't read my IPTC.

My projection is that I will get stuck at 399 approved, missing the bonus. I'm not losing my sleep over it. The 300+ more in the edit queue can die there pissfully. Sales need to be massive to reach the high payout level of 100$ at least once per year.

But let's see in December how they are doing for me. It's still too early. In the mean time I'm making more money not to upload to microstock, but painting my apartment myself, earning 8 euro per hour. I tried to find a subscription painter for 0.25 euro per hour but it didn't work.  ;D

Me too - this site has been a complete waste of my time so far.

Although the reviews are really slow, sales are really picking up

although i complained last week about their severe 100% rejections, today, they've finally approved all of the rest of 75. different reviewers, different strokes. there was also a sale yesterday and an el last month,  so things are gonna be schizophrenic there for a while.

i am already 4 weeks waiting now which i find much too long. and when i read about people waiting 6 weeks+ i have to say that's far too long. in general 1 week should be the maximum review time. 1 month and more means that there is something going totally wrong there...

I'm still uploading there, but my backlog queue stretches back to July.

I'm sure it'll get back to normal once they've caught up with all those 'Dash For Cash' submissions.

After 3 months in the que, Veer they have finally started the review process. They did about 70 of the 380 I had in line for review. They must be caught up from the dash for cash promo.  I am kind of excited because I had a few sales from the first 8 they accepted 3 months ago.  So I have high hopes for good sales here!!

I'm guessing this is at least partly due to your absolutely beautiful portfolio....which I will never look at again because it makes me hungry. :)
