CanStockPhoto was formed in 2004 and is still growing. Their affiliation with Fotosearch should increase sales which are really slow at the moment. Some contributors tend to place CanStockPhoto in their top 5, but it doesn't work quite well for us. We believe that this is due to our style and type of images we submit. We had 2 extended license sales at around $25 so far, but very few images sell here and it is very difficult to reach payout level ($50) in one month.
Their website is quite friendly after they have introduced some changes and the submission process is easy via web form or FTP. Good news is that review times are very short - even a couple of hours if you are lucky.
Stock photographers cannot ignore CanStockPhoto, but should not expect their income to grow rapidly here.
