The Foap app is one of the money-making apps that people can use to generate some additional income themselves.
There is also a website where you can do the same things as are done on the app. The app allows people to upload photos with their smartphones.
The photos are then bought by companies and brands that later use the images for commercial purposes.
The sellers are paid when a photo is purchased by a buyer and they share the proceeds with Foap.

- Tap on the camera icon which is located down the screen
- Select the photo that you intend to upload. you can select several photos together to upload at once
- Click on ‘done after selecting the photos for uploading
- Add a description of the photo together with relevant tags
- Click on ‘publish’
- Answer if there are people in the photo you uploaded. If there are people in it, you will need to get the person to sign a model release form. After it has been signed, you will then need to upload it to Foap. This is because the permission of the model or person in the photo is required before you can sell the photo
- Go to your profile page to view the photos that you just uploaded
It is always good to upload a high-quality image since it has a better chance of selling much faster than an image that is not high-quality.
Always make sure that the models in your photos are aware that you are selling the photo because Foap will always need the signed permission of the model appearing in the photo.
