How can I earn money with Scoopshot?

When you submit photos and videos they become available for sale in the Scoopshot store. Whenever your photo or video is purchased, you will receive a notification directly to your smartphone and your balance will be updated on your Profile.

In addition, all photos and videos uploaded to Scoopshot can be used by online publishers for free when an ad is embedded in the photo by IAN, our in-image advertising network. If your photos or videos are used by online publishers, such as news websites, you’ll take a share in the advertising revenue — every time someone looks at your photo/video you make money — which will be added your account balance.

How can I cash out my earnings?

Compensation for sold images is paid to your Scoopshot account, visible in the Scoopshot mobile app. You can transfer money to your bank account by tapping Cash Out. Simply complete the required details and follow the instructions. There’s no hurry to cash out earnings, you can accumulate a large sum in your Scoopshot account and cash it all out at once.

Depending on payment method, transfers may take anywhere from a few days to a few weeks. Supported payment methods include bank transfers and PayPal.

Tip:If you cannot access the Scoopshot app, you can also request a cash-out via our website and login with your Scoopshot username and password.

Do I have to pay tax on Scoopshot earnings?

Yes, most likely. In many countries, states and municipalities, you will have to pay taxes on the money you earn with Scoopshot. Please consider contacting your local tax authorities for details.

How will I know if someone’s bought my photo or video?

Can I cash out my Scoopshot earnings through my business account?

Unfortunately this is not possible. You can only cash out your Scoopshot earnings as a person, not as a business. However, if you are a freelance photographer who uses the Scoopshot PRO service, you can utilize your business account. Follow the instructions outlined in the Scoopshot PRO service.
