The ClickaSnap Community
ClickaSnap accounts are solely for the purpose of sharing images which are created by and owned by you. We do not support Creative Commons licences, or accounts whose intentions are to profit off of someone else’s work.
Our community guidelines are here to help and guide you as you become a part of the ClickaSnap community. Your profile with us is subject to these guidelines, as well our terms of service:
- You are only permitted to upload images which you own or you have created. We do not tolerate members attempting to profit off of someone else’s work.
- Do not upload images which contains content in breach of our terms of service, including, but not limited to; images which contain nudity, soft porn, violence, gore, drugs, illegal acts, spam content and images you do not own.
- No photo dumping. To photo dump is to; 1) upload multiple images that are the same or are similar 2) excessively upload images which have no artistic intention.
- Remember, we are ClickaSnap, an image sharing platform, not Go Fund Me. Do not beg other members of our community by requesting direct payments. Whether it is for personal or charitable reasons is irrelevant.
- Do not beg other members and their profiles to follow you, like, comment or view your images. Sharing your work is of course encouraged, however, when joining our community we trust that as adults, you can recognise and regulate your behaviour to ensure you are not bothering or harassing other members.
No spam comments! We want to encourage discussions and/or genuine feedback or compliments between our members. Commenting the same or similar comment excessively and consistently across a number of profiles and images is considered spam. This alongside commenting the same short and repetitive comments consistently on other members images will be seen as merely fishing for views. Repeat offenders may find action is taken against their account, including but not limited to; your earnings becoming ineligible for withdrawal or your profile being shadowbanned etc.
- Remember to play nice. Constructive criticism is welcomed and vital to budding photographers who want to improve, but it is possible to provide feedback and remain polite and courteous at the same time.
- Stay honest! Incentivising paid views will result in any earnings you’ve made to become ineligible for withdrawal. This means that any involvement of any kind with Click Circles is prohibited on our platform. If we have evidence or reasonable grounds to suspect you are a part of or have been involved with a Click Circle, your earnings will become ineligible for withdrawal. It’s not worth the risk! With quality content and time taken to engage with other ClickaSnap members and profiles, you’ll realise you don’t need Click Circles to be successful!
- Moderate your content. The ClickaSnap team does moderate content on a daily basis, and will remove anything in breach of our terms or our guidelines without notification. However, it remains your responsibility to moderate your own content, and ensure that it is not in breach of these things.
- Finally, remember to enjoy yourself!!! We are an ever growing community of brilliant photographers and artists. There are so many benefits available to you under our memberships, so enjoy them and watch your profile with us grow!

My ClickaSnap account - General FAQ's
If after checking your junk/spam folder, you still are unable to locate your verification email it may be due to your email server not accepting emails from us.
Not to worry though! You need only contact customer support and let them know. They can then manually activate your account for you!
Yes, we offer monthly or annual membership subscriptions. We do not offer nor advertise month-by-month memberships and we never have. As you will see when selecting the frequency of your membership subscription, it does confirm the amount you will pay either monthly or annually.
The monthly subscription payment will be taken automatically from the card or PayPal account which you used to purchase your membership subscription on. By opting for a monthly membership subscription and confirming this purchase, you are authorising us to take the subscription payment each month. These payments will continue until you opt to cancel your membership.
How does the 'Paid Per View' benefit work?
You can review our full Paid Per View policy here, however, below you will find the answers to our most commonly asked questions regarding our Paid Per View benefit.
We are proud of our innovative website and how it is the first successful platform to monetize images, and pay this back to the photographer!
The way that this works, is by uploading quality content on your ClickaSnap profile, other members and users on our website will view your profile and your images. For each paid view gained, you earn 0.6¢*. Please note this is 0.6 cents ($0.006) and not 6¢ ($0.06) or 60¢ ($0.60). This benefit is included in any of our chargeable membership levels.
These views then transfer into your earnings, and after some time you can request to withdraw your earnings and have these paid directly to your PayPal account. Anyone can generate paid views, whether they are a member of the site or not. Sharing your profile on social media is a great way of generating more authentic views. A great benefit to our Pro-Seller accounts, is that it does this for you automatically!
*We think it is really important that as our business grows, our members success grows with it. Which is why the rate at which we pay our Paid Per View benefit at may increase during your time with us. Should any increases to this rate occur, you will be able to see this via your Settings>Check earnings.
The difference between these two ‘views’ is essentially 5 seconds.
In order for Clickasnap to remain viable and successful for our members, we have to take certain measures to counter fraudulent activity. So, with regards to being ‘paid per view’, we need to ensure that systems are in place which devalue falsified or fake views. For example, should an image be viewed an excessive number of times from the same IP address, this would be flagged as a ‘view’ rather than an ‘paid view’.
To gain an paid view, which is what equates to a paid view, an image must be viewed for 5 seconds and not be flagged as falsified or fake. One of the reasons behind the 5 second time frame in order for an image to earn an paid view is in place to encourage our members to share high quality content. For the sake of comparison, in order to monetize users work on other social media sites you must reach these parameters:
Facebook video view = 2 seconds
Youtube video view = 30 seconds
Spotify track play = 30 second
The level of interaction that people receive on social media does heavily depend on the quality of the content being shared. Whilst we appreciate everyone has a different perspective on what is a good or bad image, we want our members to be assured they can visit ClickaSnap and see high quality content being shared across the platform.
Your profile will always show you your total views. If you want to see which views out of your total views are generating earnings, you need only visit your ‘uploads’ page.
Here you will find each image you have uploaded on your profile individually listed. Alongside these you will see 5 symbols; Glasses, love heart, comment box, coins and a piggy bank. The ‘glasses’ symbol counts your views, whilst the ‘coins’ symbol, counts your authentic views. Next to this you can see the ‘piggy bank’ symbol, which details how much you have earnt from this image.
Please note that views and earnings do not update in real time, so you will see a discrepancy between these two figures.
We are only able to make payments via PayPal at this time.
Please bear this in mind when making a decision about which membership level you wish to purchase. Our Paid Per View is not the only benefit available under our memberships, and if you are unable to receive payment this does not detract from the other benefits your membership subscription also offers you. With this in mind, we will not consider refunds under any circumstances, in instances where a member is unable to receive payment from us via PayPal.
