    1. Get paid for your photos

      Are you a photographer at heart or do photography as a hobby? Do you have scenic pictures photos of sunsets or sunrises, and perfectly staged meals or drinks, which are cluttering up your memory card(s) for your camera(s)? You can make extra money for your pictures without having to be a professional photographer. Foap will pay $5 for every picture someone purchases from you.

      Keep in mind there’s no guarantee your photos will be purchased. But even if you only sell a few, that’s some easy money for something you’ve already done.

You can drive as much (or as little) as you want and set your own schedule.  You are your own boss.  The amount of money you wish to earn depends on your location, and how often you choose to sign on to their apps and begin driving and picking up passengers.  Also your car must have valid insurance and registration, and be of no older than 15 years to qualify for the ride share.  A background check will be performed, so have a valid identification card at the ready and on you at all times.
