CS is an old file format, it could be that you have used features that only were available in CC or higher versions. Do you have a copy saved as the most recent version (or a backup)?

How did you make the background, what tools and features did you use, it may be that they are not available in CS versions.

Are you sure it was saved as CS and not .eps? EPS does not support transparency and elements are rasterized to keep the appearance. Does Adobe Stock really want CS instead of CC or 2020?

They probably accept a CS file, but if that ruins your file, why not save as CC or better, 2020?

Most important thing when saving to lower versions:

Always save the file in the current version first. Did you do that?
