For Contributors

Our contributors are our biggest asset, and we treat them accordingly! Can Stock Photo was founded on the basis of offering a fair-trade alternative to the "other guys", by paying contributors fairly and treating them with mutual respect. This isn't marketing hype, but in fact is our company philosophy. As such, you'll notice in our straight-forward Payout Schedule that we pay some of the highest real commissions in the industry, without any unrealistic tiers or confusing math.

Submitting content couldn't be easier, as we literally have the fastest submission system available. You can submit directly using our built-in web app, or by using FTP. There are no limits, so you can submit as many files as you'd like. We automatically read keyword information, don't require categories, and store model releases for easy tagging. With a few simple clicks you can submit hundreds of images at once, without entering any additional information. Our approvals are super fast, so your files will normally be approved the same day for sale!

After you upload your files and start earning money, you can request a payment at any time when your account reaches $50.00 USD (PayPal), or $100.00 USD (Moneybookers/Skrill, Cheque). And since you retain full copyright and control over your content, you can edit or remove your files at any time.
