This might be the craziest side hustle I’ve come across so far: selling feet pics!
Apparently, you can earn serious cash selling feet pics. Now before you run away in horror, just hear me out, it’s just feet. There’s not any nudity involved and some people will even pay for pictures of your feet in certain shoes, you don’t even have to show your naked feet!
While conducting my very scientific research (ahem, googling), I found some pretty incredible stories about different people who are making bank by selling pictures of their feet. I mean check this out:
- This woman (Deej) has made thousands from selling pictures of her feet.
- Desiree Gato says that she makes about $8,000 per month from selling feet pics!
- And possibly my favorite story I found, Jake quit his job and became a millionaire from selling his feet pics through OnlyFans!
If this side hustle sounds at all interesting, I’ve done all the research and found how you can get started, what platforms you can use, and how much you can expect to make. I’ll even share some tips at the end for how you can turn this into a legit full-fledged business. Basically, consider this the ultimate guide for how to sell feet pics.

How to Sell Feet Pics and Make Money
There are two ways you can go about selling pictures of your feet:
- Creating Bundles / Photo Sets: Which means you put together a set of pictures around a certain theme and you can sell those to different customers/clients
- Custom Content: You take requests where people can ask you to wear certain things or pose which different items.
You can choose to do one of these things or you can do both to help increase your income! It’s up to you!
How specifically does this all work?
Here’s the basic formula, you take pictures of your feet, you find a customer willing to pay either through your own social media profiles or on another website, and you accept payment through a popular payment processing service (like PayPal) or you can accept gift cards.
And seriously, don’t worry if you don’t have any fancy equipment, you can just use natural lighting and your phone!
If you’re using a platform that’s specifically for adult content or feet content, they will usually have a payment system in place that you can use.
If you’re finding your own clients through social media or other apps, you can use something like PayPal, Venmo, or Cash App, or you can accept gift cards.
It all depends on how comfortable you are.
Some payment systems like Venmo and PayPal will show your name, and might not let you accept payments for what they deem is “adult” or “offensive” content, which makes gift cards a bit safer.
Tip: In the article, I was reading about Deej, she stated that she accepts Amazon gift cards, and she adds them to her account immediately and will quickly purchase another gift card so the money can’t be reversed.
Before you get started this is something you should seriously think about!
How Much Can You Earn Selling Feet Pics? How Much Should You Charge?
How much you make depends on what exactly you’re offering. For example, if you decide to do custom content for clients, you could charge anywhere from $500 – $1000+ depending on what they’re asking and how many pictures they want.
If you’re just creating a photoset that you plan to sell to multiple people you could charge anywhere from $1 – $20 per photo depending on the content!
If you aren’t sure about pricing, check out other sellers to see what they charge or start on the lower end of the spectrum and raise the price as you get more customers and experience.
What Payment Platforms Should You Use?
- Cash App
- Amazon Giftcard
How to Stay Safe When Selling Feet Pics
There are a few simple things you should do to protect yourself and your content:
Your Name: Avoid using your name if you aren’t comfortable! You can pick an alias or use a different from of your name online, but be aware if you’re using a payment platform like PayPal or Venmo, your name might be exposed when you accept a payment. If you want to be more anonymous, you can set up a separate email and just accept amazon giftcards as payment.
Secure Payment: Make sure you get the payment before you send any photos or do any custom content (if you’re doing the transaction yourself).
Protect Content With Watermarks: Make sure to watermark both your photos and videos to keep them from being stolen and reposted or sold under someone else’s name!
Where Can You Sell Feet Pictures?
There are pretty much 4 different kinds of places where you can sell pictures of your feet: social media, feet pic specific websites, apps, and everything else. I’ll give you an overview of each platform and how you can use it to make money selling our pictures.
Instagram isn’t really a platform you can sell directly on, but you can use it as a form of advertising and you can make sales off o the platform (but telling people to send you payment through a payment processor or by sending you a gift card then emailing or sending the pictures).
Here’s How to Get Started:
- Create a profile – Seems obvious but yep, this is the first step! You’re going to want to create a creator or business profile so you can access the analytics, make sure to add some keywords to your bio and have an enticing profile picture.
- Post With Hashtags – To get yourself found you’re going to want to use hashtags so people know that you’re feet picture seller. Here are some tags you can use to get started: #feetmodel #feetpicseller #beautifulfeet #footfetishnation #feetpicforsale #feetfetishcommunity
Facebook is another great option for finding customers! It’s one of the most popular websites in the world and there are plenty of groups you can use to advertise yourself.
The first thing you need to do is create a page for just your feet pictures, this way you can also link to it from other platforms!
Next is you can advertise yourself on your own page, you might not get any traffic to your posts right away, but as you branch out and lead people back to your Facebook page, the traffic will increase.
Now here’s the good stuff, find a group that lets you post about yourself and what kind of pictures you have for sale. You can either do a search or check out one of these groups:
Twitter is similar to Instagram, you can use it to advertise and find customers but you have to do any transactions off the platform.
Even if this won’t be your main platform, I think this one is a MUST for anyone looking to sell feet pics or adult content. You can follow fellow sellers to see how they advertise and you can network with people who enjoy feet so you can try and make some sales.
FeetFinder is a website where you can sell feet pictures and videos to clients.
To sign up, you must be 18 or older and be willing to verify yourself by giving them a picture of your ID and verifying your phone number.
FeetFinder will protect your name and phone number by keeping those private, and when you upload content it will be blurred and only fully visible to people who purchase the content.
FeetFinder seems to be a fairly popular website so I think it’s a good place to start if you’re dipping your toe (ahem) into the feet pic world.
If you aren’t interested in going out and networking and finding customers you can use DollarFeet to make some extra money. DollarFeet pays you directly for videos and pictures and then they resell on the content on their platforms.
They pay $15 per 10-minute video that’s accepted, but you have to apply to be one of their “models” first.
InstaFeet is a website that’s for content creators to sell their feet content.
You can create a profile, upload photos, and sell subscriptions to your followers.
They pay out every 1st and 15th of each month, and Instafeet only takes a 10% cut of your earnings (less than OnlyFans!).
OnlyFans is one of the biggest sites out there for adult content creators. There are over 100,000,000 users and they pay out more than $3,000,000,000 annually to creators – which makes this one of the best websites for selling your feet pics!
This website works a bit differently than other websites out there, first, there are different ways you can make money on the platform: people can subscribe to your content, they can also buy specific pieces of content from you, and customers can also give you “tips”.
One of the cons of OnlyFans is that there aren’t many tools for discoverability, so if you’re going to use OnlyFans for your feet pic business you’re going to need to find customers on other platforms.
OnlyFans takes 20% of your earnings.
Going Legit: How to Turn This Side Hustle Into a Business
If you’re ready to take this from side hustle to full-fledged business, you need to start treating it like you would any other business! Here are some tips:
Grab All the Social Profiles: If you haven’t already done so, make sure you create a social media profile on all of the big websites: Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, etc. Make sure all of these profiles have the same or similar name so it’s easy for people to identify you. Even if you don’t use all the profiles all the time, having them will keep other people from grabbing the name and it’s fairly easy to crosspost on different platforms.
Build a Brand: I know you’re thinking uh, I’m just trying to sell feet pics, what do you mean I should build a brand? But hear me out, you can carve out a niche and build a community around yourself and your uh, feet. This can keep people coming back and it will be helpful if you ever decide to branch out into other types of content/products. If you want to read more about building a brand, Pocket Business has a handbook all about it.
Offer Different Products: You don’t have to stick to feet pics. You can branch out, you can do videos, maybe other types of pictures and videos that show different things (something other than feet!), you could also start doing live shows, or even some sort of merch (there’s gotta be a market for feet merch??).
Keep Your Money Separate: If you really want this to be a business, you need to keep the money made in a separate account (AT THE VERY LEAST!!). If you want to know more about setting up your business accounts, Clarissa from Nerdy Number Lovers has a great mini-course that shows you how to set up all your account and how to get about doing your own basic bookkeeping!
Final Thoughts About Selling Feet Pics
If you want to make some extra money selling feet pics can be a great side hustle (or full-time source of income!), just make sure you keep yourself safe and try to maintain your privacy!
After you’ve been selling for a while and you want to scale the income, you can try to create a brand for yourself and start managing your income like a business.
