Bang for buck: It’s free!
Ease of use:
If you have a smartphone and are on a tight budget, there are chances you can make some moolah while traveling, simply by clicking some awesome pictures with this app called Foap.
All you have to do is download the free app, create an account, take a quality photo, and upload photo to Foap’s marketplace. If someone buys the license to your photo for $10, you make $5. This means that if your photo sells, say, 20 times, you make $5 each time and end up with $100 in your pocket, all for about 5 minutes of work.
It’s obvious that your photo must be approved by the Foap developers. Small, boring, non-marketable pictures will be rejected. And those Instagram shots won’t work either!
This is similar to shuttershock or any other stock photo website, and since the service is new, don’t expect a lot of sales.
