Cons-

VERDICT: To begin using Foap, you have to download the application on Apple iTunes or Google Play and to register. This can be done via Facebook page or your e-mail. Also, there is a website where you can buy pictures on your own.

Foap was always a very profitable platform for amateur photographers who would like to earn some money. I think, it doesn’t have to become the only way to get money through your photography as it’s quite difficult to sell more than several photos after two-tree months of work.

How Does Foap Work?

This Foap review covers all the initial steps of using this platform, so go on reading. Primarily, download iPhone or Android application and then sign in.

You will be able to complete registration in a few seconds provided that you have a Facebook page or e-mail which everyone has.

The next step is to click the "Publish" button in the upper corner of the window. Once you do it, you will be transferred. There, you will have to answer some questions such as "Are there any people in your photo?" and "Are the faces in this image recognizable?"

All these steps will take not more than 5 minutes. When everything is set, users of this platform can look at your images and buy them if they want.

After that, you will need to fill the application not later than on the 15th day of the current month. In case you don’t do it, you will get your money the next month.

Foap Advantages

  • Foap has a commission of 50%. This is good for you as you don’t have to do anything to sell your works, the platform does it for you. Such conditions are better than the majority of other applications used to sell photos online offer.
  • The Foap missions system is great. There, users have to take particular images that should fit the stated criteria. In such competitions, you can win $100 and more.
  • You can access this application in no time. Once you take a photo with your smartphone and want to sell it, just open the app and post it. Just several minutes to do it.
  • You don’t have to pay money to register there.
  • No need to provide DSLR images. The majority of stock photography websites ask for a particular resolution but in Foap the minimum requirement is 1280x960 pixels. That’s why, you can easily upload photos taken on your phone.

Foap Disadvantages

  • You can upload a picture only through your smartphone. This may be problematic for photographers who don’t use them.
  • You get paid only to a certain date (the middle of the current month), so sometimes you will have to wait until you receive your money, especially if you didn’t submit the payment application by the 15th day of the month.
  • You can’t upload a few photos at a time. Because of this, it will take you some time to post a bunch of images.
  • You can receive your money only via PayPal. In case you don’t have an account there, you will have to make it, fill necessary information and get your bank account checked.
  • Right now Foap is not rated at the Better Business Bureau.
  • There are plenty of users on this platform, which means you will have to compete with them.

Is Foap Legit or a Scam?

A lot of users ask this question. I have tested this platform and can assure that making money on Foap is legal and you can earn good money if your images are bought. However, it’s not going to be easy due to a tough competition.
