I'm always looking for opportunities to make money online and when I found this site that pays you to take pictures I was more than happy but a bit sceptical about weather it was legit. After being on it for 2 months I have been paid twice and think it is definitely the best site for making money that isn't time consuming like most of the sites I use now. The site is very new and I though it would be a great idea to share it with on here.
----------How the Site Works------------
The company that runs the site looks for trends in day to day life of people. They post assignments regularly where they ask you to upload pictures of you doing certain things.
Assignment - Show us how you eat breakfast.
What you do - Take a picture of your plate of breakfast or your pot whilst cooking breakfast then upload it.
How you earn - Once your picture is uploaded you will have to wait till it's approved to earn your credits which is usually 1-2 days 4 days tops.
With a task such as this on I have stated you can upload pictures of all the different breakfast food you eat on any day just so long as they are different. With some tasks you can't upload more than one e.g. Show us the latest furniture you have brought. Now this task is obvious that you will only have one latest piece of furniture so if you upload more than one the second probably will be rejected so it isn't really worth it to try.
It really is as simple as that and I could not believe it when I found it was actually a legit website. I find the assignments to be very fun because it's weird when you actually takes notice of you lifestyle habits. It wasn't until using this site that I realised that I eat so many snacks because I always seem to have pictures of my snacking foods to upload. Snap it, Upload it, Earn it is their motto.
-----------Credits & Membership--------------
The sign up process to the site is very quick and takes about 5-10 minutes which is good because some sites take long to register. The site is very new and excepts everyone and are actively trying to get new members. The way the membership works is you start of as a bronze member and earn 5 credits per picture accepted. Once you have had 26 pictures accepted you will move up to a silver member and earn 7 credits per picture. The final status is gold and you reach that status when you have had 51 pictures accepted and from then on you will earn 9 credits per picture accepted. As long as you follow the term & conditions your account will stay open but if you start trying to cheat the system your account will likely to be closed.
The main rules to follow are DO NOT upload images that are not yours or from the internet they will not be accepted because they are not your own.
----------Image Quality & App-----------
On this site image quality is very important. Pictures have to be good quality and not edited to be accepted. The pictures you upload can not be blurry and need to be taken on a decent camera. I know it sounds daunting getting good quality images but to be fair the age of smartphones make it easy for me to upload good pictures and nowadays my pictures always get accepted. I started uploading my pictures that I was taking on my iPod but was realising not all my pictures were being accepted because of the quality was sometimes dark. When I started using my phone which is a Sony Ericsson Xperia Ray I realised everything I was taking started to get accepted so I decided to stick with my phone.
Uploading pictures on mobiles is very easy because they have got an iPhone and most recently and Android app to make things very easy. The way the app works is that you will download it then you will be able to see a list of your assignments. To upload all you do is click the assignment you want to do and you are given the option to take a new picture or go to your gallery. Most of the time I find it easier to take my pictures throughout the day the upload them all at night before bed or when relaxing or something. The app makes it very easy to participate in Iconzoomer on the go. Non iPhone/Android users will have to upload their pictures online through the website but it is just as quick and simple as the app. The app only allows you to upload assignments all the other features such as getting a payout, seeing what has been accepted and haw many credits you have need to be checked online.
-----------Website & Navigating through the website--------
The website is very presentable and has some high quality photography used for their background which I think as someone who is interested in photography is excellent to look at. It also shows how much time and effort has been put into the website itself.
The website is very easy to navigate through and has bold headers to take you to each section. On the home page you have a a live feed of pictures that have recently been accepted and I think that is a good feature because it allows you to see what others are uploading and let you see trends going on at the moment. In bold on the home page you will also see how many credits you have, and you member status.
Online you can check your assignments and see which ones are pending and which ones have been accepted. Also you can check new assignment that are there and request a payout.
The site itself is very easy to navigate through and very attractive to look at which makes it fun when using it. The site updates the assignment very often so there is always something to do.
I think this is probably the section of this review most have been waiting for so here it goes. Payout is very simple you redeem your credits for a selection of 3 rewards. You can choose from Unicef donations, Paypal Cash and Amazon.com vouchers. Each of the 3 categorised of prizes can be redeem when you either get 200, 600 or 1000 credits and you can redeem as many as you want. Each payment will be made on the following 1st of the month of when you requested it. If the 1st falls on a weekend you will get your payment the Monday after the weekend. e.g. you request on the 12th of august and your payment will be made the 1st of September. If you request more than on payment leading up to the 1st of a month all will come on the 1st and all payments are notified by email. The site is 100% percent legit and I have been paid twice so you can take my word for it.
200 credits = 10 euros
600 credits = 35 euros
1000 credits = 60 euros
Payments are changed into your local currency if you redeem for cash but not sure on other payments because I have not had them yet. As far as I am aware of this site pays all of Europe. I am in the UK so I get my rewards in pounds.
In terms of how much you can earn I am a gold member earning 9 credits per picture so I only have to upload 23 pictures a month to have 1 payout. For the amount of assignment that they give out 23 pictures is achievable in a week.
The site is a very good idea and it is very easy and fun at the same time. Most of all it is not time consuming so you never feel the strain of having to go and use Iconzoomer it just feels like a fun activity that I always do like checking Facebook. There isn't much more I can say about the site than hurry up and register because it's probably one of the best sites for making money that is fun that I have comes across to date. It's not a get rich scheme it's purely a trend spotting website that pays you so don't expect to become a millionaire but definitely make some extra money.
I know it sounds to good to be true but check it out yourself is all I can say.
