Do you have an iPhone or Android smartphone? If so, it's likely that you take pictures with them pretty often. There is an app you can download called Foap where you can upload the photos you take and actually sell them.
There are lots of companies out there that want good, original pictures for various purposes, and smartphone cameras are getting better and better. Earning with your camera is just one more super flexible way to earn money on your own time.
In our Foap review, we'll discuss in further detail how this works.
Foap Review – How much can you earn?
There are four ways you can sell your photos on Foap.
First of all, you can do Foap missions where they are looking for specific types of pictures. The rewards for the missions range from $100 to $500. According to the Foap FAQ, “Your photos can be bought in a regular Missions for $10 each, while in an exclusive Missions their price can go up to $60. Note that you split your earnings with Foap 50/50.”
Second, you can do Foap's “premium” missions, which have multiple winners (their regular missions only ever have one winner). Also, you must unlock these missions by watching video ads on their site. Foap will reward you with some coins for watching the videos, which you use for joining the missions.
Yet another way to earn on Foap is by selling your photos directly on the marketplace. Just upload them, caption them, tag them, and wait for someone to get interested and buy them. Your photos cost up to $10 and this amount is split 50/50 with Foap after you've made the sale.
Finally, it's possible to add photos from other users to your online album. Each photo you've added to your album gives you a chance to make $0.25 off of it if it sells.
When can you cash out?
You can cash out your earnings at any time via their app, but Foap only pays out at the end of every month. If you have money pending, you will need to cash out by the 15th in order to get your money by the end of the current month.
Foap uses Paypal to process payments, so if you don't have a Paypal account, it's necessary.
How do you get your photos listed in the Foap Marketplace?
Any photo you submit will have to receive a rating of at least 2.5 by other Foap users to get posted for sale in the marketplace. And when you upload photos, you'll also be required to rate at least five photos submitted by other users. This is how Foap makes sure that all pictures are getting ratings.
How many times can you sell one picture?
You can sell your pictures on Foap over and over. They can keep making money for you.
Is this open worldwide?
I don't see any geographic limitations listed, so I believe that it is.
How can you get started?
Start by downloading the Foap app to either your iPhone or Android. Then, start taking pictures and uploading them. Good luck! You can visit the Foap website here for more details on how it all works.
