Have you ever been a little bit curious how to sell feet pics? Of course you have. That’s why you’re here! Selling feet pics online for extra cash sounds strange, but there are genuine ways to do it without selling your soul or doing anything weird.
Let’s get started…
What does it mean to sell feet pics?
Basically it means that you can sell pictures of your feet to someone who wants to buy it. There is a great market out there for you to sell feet pictures.
Why do people buy pictures of feet?
I’m not going to lie, some people buy feet pics because they have a foot fetish. Now we’ve got that out of the way, there are loads of other reasons someone might want to purchase a photo of your feet. Some people may want to use it for commercial reasons, too.
Just think about it. We see pictures and videos of feet everywhere on a daily basis. It’s completely normal and someone has been paid for that!
How much money can you make selling pictures of your feet online?
This will completely depend on which avenue you explore and the clients/person buying your photos. It’s pretty similar to selling other photos online on sites like Shutterstock. Except you can earn around $5-100 dollars per photo. For inspiration, check out this story of a woman who makes a whopping $70k a year selling photos of her feet!!
Is it legal to sell photos of your feet?
Another common question that you may have is wondering whether it’s even legal to sell photos of your feet. Am I right? Yes it’s completely, 100% legal in the US, the UK and Canada!
As long as they are your unique feet and photos. Selling photos that aren’t yours or that you don’t have rights to is illegal and can land you a hefty fine! Check each individual site’s T&Cs and double-check it’s legal in your country if you’re not in one of the areas listed above.

How to sell feet pics on Craigslist

How to sell feet pictures successfully
Now you know where to sell your feet pics, it’s time to set yourself up for success! Here are some of my top tips to help you make cash selling feet pics fast…
Do your research
If you’re going to start any side hustle, it’s always a good idea to do some research. Follow similar people within your niche and get a feel for what photos they’re posting, the best platforms to use, and how much to charge per photo.
This will really help you figure out where you fit in within this crowded market, because there are always opportunities to be had!
You’ll also need to check if it’s legal to even sell photos online. As we mentioned before, it’s illegal in some countries.
Build your audience
When it comes to selling your feet pics online, building an audience is another key element to consider. You’ll need to spend time building your audience, specifically on social media sites, in order to attract potential clients.
Remember that consistency is key. It’s better to do a little each day than post loads of photos one day and interact with your audience, only to fall off the grid for weeks after.
Take photos that are high quality
We’ve all heard the phrase ‘a picture is worth a thousand words’ and it really is! Take time to perfect your photos to make them as attractive as possible. Check you have good lighting, play with your backgrounds, and most importantly, make sure your photos are crystal clear.
Your photos need to be branded
Unfortunately, like any online industry, you may find yourself victim to someone stealing your work to sell on as their own. To prevent this, copyright your images by using a free photo editing website like Canva to add a watermark logo to all of your images. It’s so easy to use and only takes minutes, which will save you a big headache in the long run!
Receive payment before you send the photo
This is a big one! Sending the goods before you’ve received payment is a rookie mistake. Always set up a secure form of payment e.g. PayPal and make sure you’ve received payment before sending anything.
Create a business account
If you’re taking feet photos with the intention of selling them for profit, you’ll need a business account for tax purposes. Creating a separate account will help you track incoming sales and outgoing expenses for your business. Again, research is key here, as you can choose a range of business accounts to suit your needs.
Scrub your photos
You may not know this, but your photos may be carrying sensitive data such as your GPS location. Scrubbing refers to removing any of this data to protect yourself when sharing photos online.
The last thing you want is an avid fan showing up on your doorstep! A simple Google or YouTube search will show you exactly how to scrub your photos in seconds.
Hide your identity for safety
Similar to scrubbing your photos, you’ll also want to double check you’re not giving away your identity. Make sure you leave your face and other details out of your images. It’s a good idea to remove any mirrors (I’ve seen many failures here where people haven’t realised their reflection has bounced off their phone images!)
Also, ensure you don’t accidentally give away any details that may be lying around on surfaces like desks and coffee tables, such as letters containing your full name and address, your bank card, etc.
Other ways to sell feet pics
In addition to the ways I’ve mentioned above, there are EVEN MORE ways to sell photos of your feet online. These are less about selling feet pics directly to clients, and more about how you can use your feet in alternative ways to make money…
Start a blog about shoes
Starting a blog with a specific niche is a great way to earn extra cash and passive income online. You can make quite a significant amount by setting up a blog about shoes and including photos of your feet.
Once you’re established, you can work with brands as an affiliate, to help promote their products and make money this way. Similar to Instagram and hashtags, it really pays to Include keywords to help people find you on Google.
Become a product tester for foot products
Product testing is an awesome way to bag free stuff and test products you wouldn’t have necessarily had the opportunity to otherwise. There are loads of luxury foot product companies that request honest opinions from people like you.
Many brands will send you the products and ask for photos for them to use in return. Some companies will even pay you something extra, on top of the free products. Search online or join money-saving communities to explore all the latest product testing opportunities
Become a foot model for a shoe company
This one probably needs very little explanation but here it goes anyway. Shoe companies need foot models to help them model their lovely, stylish shoes. They often advertise on their website or social media channels when these opportunities become available, so keep your eyes peeled and apply ASAP when you see a job opening to secure the gig. It’s also worth taking photos in advance to showcase your fabulous feet.
Work with pedicure artists
Another way to make money selling feet pics is to collaborate with pedicure artists. You could become a brand ambassador or influencer for a salon by advertising their services on your social media accounts. Even better, on top of free pedicures, you’ll also get paid per post or picture.
They can then also use your photos for marketing purposes, e.g. on their website, their own social media channels, leaflets, and more.
Sell pictures of baby feet
This one is adorable! You can also make money selling pictures of teeny tiny baby feet online to baby brands and stock photography sites and earn extra cash per photo. Imagine seeing a campaign online or on television and knowing those are your children’s feet? You’ll be so proud!
As with all companies you work with selling feet pics, it’s worth thinking about what you’ll charge brands here. Each individual company will have a budget, but there is always some wiggle room.
Team up with a medical professional
Reaching out to medical professionals can also help you promote your photos if you’re looking to sell feet pics. There are online clinics and communities who specialise in looking into feet issues and look for individuals to help them show what these look like. So, if you have any specific feet-related issues, your photos could be worth a small fortune to these professionals!
Sell on Zazzle
Zazzle is another online marketplace where you can create products to sell as a print on demand style service with the help of independent manufacturers. You could make money by taking professional photos of your feet and pairing them up with funny quotes to sell on merchandise like t-shirts, sweatshirts, tote bags, and mugs.
Even better, you can use your social media following to promote these products to earn extra cash.
Can I replace my regular income selling feet pics online?
In all honesty, it will take a long time to build enough income to replace your job. Instead, it’s more realistic to treat this as extra income to supplement your wage. Especially while you’re first starting out.
Do you have to pay taxes on feet pics?
Yes, as discussed earlier, you are acting as a business selling a product so you will have to pay taxes on the money you make selling feet pictures online. If you’re completely new to this, you can use software like Quickbooks or hire an online accountant to help you out.
So there we have it! If you were wondering how to sell pictures of your feet these are just some of the ways you can make money doing so. As with any side hustle, treat this as a business and keep going. You’ll soon start to see the money roll in!
