How to Sell Photos Online

More and more people are going online day by day, which has enabled the Internet as the best place for trading almost everything. Anyone, anywhere around the world can take the majestic photo and make the money out of it.

Due to the rise in the website and frequent need of an update of it. There has been surging in the photographic business. Further, skyrocketing eBook release accelerate the demand for quality photos. Anyone seriously thinking of making money by selling the photos has a better future in the long run.


There are mainly two options for making money by selling the photo. First options are that one can directly sell the photos to the website and the second is the one can create an own website to sell the photo. If you have enough time and resource you can make the website and start selling the photo.

There are lots of photo selling sites like the Sutter stock, Pixabay to sell the photos. If you are serious about making money by selling the photo you need to have the best professional camera. Generally, the minimum size of the photo needs to be more than 3 MB. If you are thinking of taking the photo from the mobile to sell it professionally, I strongly opposed this concept.


Due to the immense competition in this field, there is the requirement to make the high-quality photos. Users can download the photos on their requirements and use them. The blogger requires small size photos because larger size photos cause the slowing of a website and increase the bounce rate. Someone making eBook cover requires high-quality photos, as this is vital for making the attractive eBook cover. The royalty paid by the website selling photos varies from 20 to 60 percent strongly depends on the websites.

Unless you are good at bringing traffic to the site making an own site sell photo: there is the hidden risk of wasting the money by making the website. This is highly competitive market as this may require a huge investment. First thing needs to consider while making the website is that the domain and web hosting companies need to be different. This is vital as there might arise the circumstance where you want to sell the website. If the Doman registration and web hosting companies are same then that can create the problems.

Further, you need to constantly check the photos obtained from the user for the copyright. Unable to check thoroughly on the copyright issue might lead to the legal action. Relying excessively in the software, which has the pitfalls of 10% error always is in danger.

Further, if you want to create the stock photos free for commercial use. You can generate the revenue by placing the advertisement of high-quality photos. Asking tips after someone download the photos can generate a small amount of revenue.

You can create the own price of the photos but generally, photos are sold at $5 USD. The excess price tag at the beginning phase of launching the websites is not good. You can attract the customer by giving the incentive in the beginning phase. Further, you can allocate the membership plan for the nominal amount and give some photos free each week.
