Updated July 2019 – The app is no longer available.
The Markedshot app is available on the App Store for iOS devices or on the Google Play Store for Android devices. This is an app you can use to upload your photos, edit your photos online and sell them in the marketplace. Furthermore, the app offers you challenges that you can participate in to earn money and gifts. This is an excellent opportunity for anyone who loves taking photos with their mobile device. You don’t need to be a professional photographer to use this app.
How Does it Work?
- You’ll need to go to the App Store or the Google Play Store to download and install the app on your mobile device.
- Once the app is installed, you’ll need to create your account. Fill in your profile information and your PayPal email address. The company needs this in order to pay you.
- Next, you’ll need to verify your account. This is important if you want to sell your images. To verify your account, go to the app. You’ll now create a small verification video with your face visible. The app will give you a code that you’ll need to recite during the video. Upload this to the app and your account is verified.
- If you upload photos to sell that have models in them, you’ll need to fill out a model release form to sell these types of photos in the marketplace.
- You have 3 choices to upload photos to your dashboard. You can use the website and upload the photos directly to your dashboard; you can upload them through the iOS app installed on your phone, or upload them through the Android app on your device.
- When uploading the images to the site, only upload your personal images. Don’t upload an image that you don’t own the right to. Otherwise, there will be legal consequences that you’ll face for uploading copyrighted photos to the site.
- If you want to sell your photos in the marketplace the site takes 24 to 48 hours to review your photos. This can vary and or take longer depending on how many photos need to be reviewed.
- Unfortunately, some photos that you upload can be rejected by the site. Each photo must comply with the site’s quality guidelines to be posted in the marketplace. If you feel that the company has misjudged your photos it is possible to contact the company and ask for the reason.
- You can join in the site’s contests and competitions to earn more money.
- Each photo sold in the marketplace goes for $5. You earn 50% of the sales of your photos. Furthermore, the marketplace can sell your photo more than once.
What Do People Say About this App?
- Many people are having issues with selling their photos on the app.
- The photo reviews are taking up to 6 days or longer on the app. They say it should be within 24 hours and this isn’t happening.
- The competition selects the photos by votes. It seems unfair that the worst photos are being selected and paid and the decent photos are being ignored.
- The app has corrected the issues with the voting challenges. They now have a voting and a nonvoting challenge to give more people a chance to earn extra money from the app.
- All most all the complaints from this app are for the time frame it takes to approve photos. Some people wait more than a week before their photos are approved to sell in the marketplace.
How Does the Company Pay?
- Each photo that is sold in the marketplace will earn you a 50% commission. The photos sell for $5 each; therefore, you’ll earn $2.50.
- Once your account has reached $10, you can request a payout from the app.
- The app will send your money to your PayPal account.
This is a legitimate photo app and will pay you when one of your photos sells in the marketplace. Like any marketplace that displays photos, it will take time for people to find yours and buy them. You’ll compete with the other members on the app for buyers in the marketplace. However, the app does have competition that you can enter with your photos. One competition allows members to vote on the photos submitted. If you gain enough votes on your photo, you’ll win a prize. In the second competition, the photos will be selected by the company. If your photo is selected, you’ll win a prize. This is a good app and the company tries to attract buyers to the marketplace so the photos can be sold. You have a chance to sell your images on the site and this all depends on the buyers and what they want to purchase.
