I should have reached the silver canister but it is still bronze.


The counter shows 2558 sales.

Istock update them periodically not in 'real time'. I hade the same issue upgrading to bronze a couple of weeks ago. Be patient. It should happen soon...

If you have more than 2500 photo sales, then your canister will update. It normally takes a few days after reaching whichever milestone. However, I see that you also sell videos, so be sure that the total downloads which you are monitoring does not include any video sales. You need 2500 or more photo sales for the canister to change.

And congrats on reaching Silver!

I don't have videos in my port, I just applied to upload them, passed the exam but never found the mental strength to upload them XD


So my sales are 100% photos

That's good news then, I'm sure the canister will change for you soon.

Thank you.


Since at the moment I can't find it, could you please tell me what's the weekly upload limit for silver authors? 22?


Thanks.

Reaching silver does not bring any benefit except having your upload quota of images increased. Few years ago everyone here used to congratulate contributors reaching higher canister level, today is nothing special but a symbolic event. Unfortunally IS did not find, or did not want to find a way to award in any manner the reach of certain canister level to the contributor.

The achievement on reaching any canister is something I think that is very much to be congratulated. No matter if the benefits of a higher canister are not what they were. With sales volumes generally reported as being down, I think the milestones in DLs are much harder to achieve now for those who were not lucky enough to join the site years earlier. But thanks for shining that particularly little ray of sunshine over here.

Anyway, the OP's questions have been answered.
