Foap App Reviews
About Foap App
Foap.com is the online home of Foap App, a company that says their goal is to let companies “forget photo shoots and stock photography” and instead use a fun and effective alternative.
How Does It Work?
According to their website, most companies rely on stock photography for their website, pamphlets, mailings, and other materials which benefits from images and photography. If they cannot find a stock photo that meets their specific imagery needs, then companies are often required to pay professionals to create a photo shoot specific to their needs, which can be prohibitively expensive for many companies.
Foap App wants to provide businesses with an alternative. Companies who partner with Foap will be able to post Foap Missions, which will go out to the more than two million amateur photographers who are Foap members. These photographers will submit photos as a response to your mission, and companies can choose the photo they like best.
At this time their website says that the Foap App is available for free download on both iOS and Android devices.
Currently this company offers three different plans for their customers. The first is their Bronze Plan, which is described as the best option for small and medium companies and offers Branded & Lifestyle content on demand, access to two million photographers from all over the world, global and perpetual licenses, model releases, and brand take off programs.
Their Silver Plan includes all the features of the Bronze Plan, along with curation by their Quality Team, multiple brands, and support on briefs and creative assets creation. Finally the Gold Plan offers all the features of the Silver Plan, along with engaging targeted category photographers, product sampling and shipment, full brief and art direction, and extra activation of photographers.
The pricing for these plans are not published on their website. Instead, they ask their potential customers to contact them so they discuss your specific needs and the associated pricing directly with you.
Unfortunately this company does not appear to provide their customers with a Refund Policy at this time, but since they do not provide pricing information without a personal consultation, customers can speak to a company representative about what policies, if any, are in place. Still, if a customer has a poor experience and they believe that they deserve a refund of any fees they have paid, they should contact their Customer Service team and explain their circumstances.
Customer Service Contact Info
Customers who wish to contact their Customer Service team with any questions, concerns, or complaints can do so by email at [email protected] or [email protected], or by using the website’s Live Chat feature whenever it is available.
The concerns regarding the Foap App are the same as all other applications and websites which work to get people provide their own personal photography for professional use – these apps simply don’t pay much at all to the people taking the photos, making it difficult for them to earn a reasonable wage for their work, if this is something they are hoping to do long term.
Competitors and Alternatives?
There are actually many different online communities which help people earn money for taking their own photographs for corporate or small business campaigns, so people looking for alternatives to the Foap App will have a variety of other options.
