Foap does not promise a huge income potential but you will have a lot of fun doing it. Snap, upload, create a tag and that's it! It takes less than 3 minutes to increase your chances of earning something from your pictures. Foap also made it very easy to upload photos using their app - PC upload will soon be available. So instead of keeping your pictures on your phone, taking up space and no one appreciating, share it with the Foap community.
Start by downloading the Foap app and signup using either your Facebook account or by email. Upload high-quality pictures and add relevant tags, licenses, and descriptions. Foap sells your pictures for $10 each where you get to keep $5. You can curate albums and add other people's pictures in it. You get a $0.25 commission per picture sold from that album. Check out our photography tips from the pros below.
You can also increase your income potential by joining Foap missions. These missions are sponsored by big companies (Nivea, Nike, MasterCard, etc.) they give specific instructions on what kind of photos they are looking for. Foap missions are divided into two categories; normal and premium (higher rewards). Before you can participate in premium missions, you need Foap coins which you can buy or earn by watching ads. You can win an extra $100 to $2500 from these missions.
Publish high quality, well-thought-out photos. Why would anyone buy a photo that they can take from their living room?
Think about your tags carefully. This is how people find your pictures.
Think of the business usability of your photo. Restaurants will buy photos of food, pet shops with pets, and their happy owners, beauty saloons with people, and their wavy hair. Check recently sold photos to get some idea.
Don't make cash your primary motivation for joining Foap unless you want to do it full time. Enjoy the process. Some people consider Foap as an "Instagram alternative" and just post for fun.
