Although the basic principles of selling photos and footage through Foap are the same as other classic stock photography agencies, there are a few remarkable differences. For one thing, you work with the free app to upload your material straight to Foap.
Customers can download pictures after they pay for them. They buy the right to use the image, not the right to own it. Your pics stay yours.
There are a couple of ways to earn money with your photos on Foap.
The first is most common: upload a picture. As soon as it is sold, the money ($10) is split between you and Foap. In this case, the split is 50/50, which is not bad at all.
A nice extra is the second way of making money. You can add images of other users to your album and make a ‘commission’ of $0.25.
The last method of generating income on Foap is to participate in missions. A mission, basically, is a contest where you can win prizes. Depending on the type of mission, there are one or more rewards.
If you participate in a regular mission, your photo can still be bought, sometimes even for up to $60. The split stays at 50/50.
The total available rewards vary for each different mission.
At the moment, they only work with PayPal to pay their photographers. Hoy will have to have $5 at least before you can request a payment.
How to start with Foap
Basically, follow these steps, and you will be up and running in no time:
- Download the app (Apple or Android) from the sore
- Create a profile
- Upload great-looking photos.
- Caption and tag your images.
- And that’s it! Foap will do the rest.
I haven’t sold my images on Foap, but I have experience selling my pictures on stock photo sites.
Speaking from that experience (with the classic agencies), the possibility of uploading, tagging, and captioning at the shoot or on my way back home was something I would have loved!
