Sell Your Smartphone Photos & Make Money

Do you like taking photos on your smartphone such as an iPhone or Google Pixel?

Recently, I found an app where you can upload your photos and sell them. To join is totally free and you can earn upto $5 per photo sold.

As well as this, you can enter your photos into competitions what are also known as “Missions”.

The photo app I am referring to is Foap. It is a very popular app for photographers using just their phone.  The app is available  to download for free in the Apple or Google Play stores.

When I first joined it took a while for me to figure out what was actually going on with the app.

This is the reason for my post.  To hopefully answer some questions when you first join up.

I will highlight the key parts to the app and what it is all about below.

Foap Key Information

So obviously, you upload your favourite photos into the app. Make sure they are large size or else they will not get accepted.   You name the photo uploaded and add tags so people can find your photo by tag search.

What I didn’t realise that the photos are actually available on a separate website Foap Photo Market.  Here are the photos I have uploaded on the marketplace.

If you click on one of the photos you will see they are for sale for $10.  If you sell a photo you get 50% commission off Foap.  It doesn’t cost you to join and the commission is paid into your Paypal account.


A great part of Foap is that brands hold competitions for Foapers to enter their photos into a particular Mission.  You have to either earn or buy coins to enter photos into the missions.

You can earn coins by watching adverts.  You get 5 coins per advert and some missions require 25/50/75/100/150 to enter a photo into the competition depending on the prize money.

Rating Photos

When you upload your photos into the Foap app, other users can rate your photos.  The ratings then appear on the other photo market place website.

Here is an example:

On the right under the price and cart button you will see 5 out of 5 based on 9 users.  To get people to rate your photos, rate some photos yourself.  The more you rate other people’s photos, the more people will rate yours.  This will increase your chances of selling a photo in the market.

Social Network

Foap also includes following fellow Foap users and you can comment on the photos.

If you like to take photos and see what other people are taking photos of, this is a very good app.

Final Word

As the app is free to join, you have nothing to lose.  You have the chance to sell your photos and to find out what other people think about your photos via the ratings sections.

I fully recommend this app, as I have only joined a week or so ago I am yet to sell a photo, but it is a great way to share your favourite photos and to see what people think of them.

Any questions you may have, please feel free to leave a comment below or use the contact form.

By the way,  if you join the Foap photo uploading app, follow me justinca71 and I will follow you back and check out your photos.

Thanks and happy snapping!
