How do I set up payment processing in my account and what are my payment gateway options?

  • Updated

For clients to checkout and make payments through your ShootProof gallery with a  credit card, you must select a payment gateway. If you don't select a payment gateway, or have the Pay Later function enabled in your Gallery Settings, clients will be able to check out, without paying, by entering their basic address and contact information. You must then arrange to accept their payment outside of ShootProof. To ensure you're paid, be sure to set up payment processing before sharing a client gallery.

Payment Gateway Options

The payment processor(s) available to you depend on where your business is located. See below for a description of each:

ShootProof Pay (available only for studios in the United States)

With ShootProof Pay, your clients enjoy a seamlessly professional experience: they never have to leave your gallery to finalize checkout, and can use any major credit card. Use ShootProof Pay to process lab- or self-fulfilled orders, and Invoice payments. The processing fee for ShootProof Pay is 2.9%, plus $.30 per transaction, but no monthly or yearly fee. You'll receive your funds via ACH transfer to your bank account, based on your account preferences and settings. Some studios also qualify for instant payouts to a debit card.

*Studios who signed up before June 2021 also had the option to use PayPal Website Payments Pro or Authorize.net. If you are a US-based studio still using either of these options, please be aware that if you remove your gateway, you will not be able to add it back. You will only have access to ShootProof Pay going forward.

 

Authorize.net (available to studios in Canada)

If you already have your own Authorize.net Merchant Account, you can link it to your ShootProof account. Then, Authorize.net will be used for processing client orders when they check out in your gallery.  This account type has both a monthly fee and a transaction fee from Authorize.net.  Your clients will remain on ShootProof's site for the entire checkout process, which creates a seamless buying experience. You'll receive your funds to your merchant account immediately, and will receive your order details, marked as "paid," from ShootProof upon the completion of the transaction. Authorize.net accepts all major credit cards.

We have no visibility on payments when they're sent through a third-party processor. Contact Authorize.net directly for more information or help with transactions.

Braintree (available to studios outside the United States)

With Braintree, the checkout process for your clients is seamless: they make their purchase selections in their galleries and the entire checkout is completed on ShootProof's site, meaning your clients do not have to leave your gallery/website. This account comes with no monthly or yearly fee but may incur a transaction fee from Braintree. You'll receive your funds to your Braintree account immediately, and will receive your order details, marked as "paid," from ShootProof. Braintree accepts all major credit cards.  

We have no visibility on payments when they're sent through a third-party processor. Contact Braintree Support directly for more information or help with specific transactions.

PayPal Website Payments Pro (available to studios outside the United States)

PayPal's Pro account adds a seamless experience for your clients, where they'll complete the entire checkout on ShootProof's site. This account type has both a monthly fee and a transaction fee from PayPal.  You'll receive your funds to your PayPal account immediately, and will receive your order details, marked as "paid," from ShootProof. PayPal accepts all major credit cards.

We have no visibility on payments when they're sent through a third-party processor. Contact PayPal Support directly for more information or help with specific transactions.

PayPal Website Payments Standard (for Business)  (available to studios outside the United States)

This is a basic, free business account from PayPal. This account type is an economical way for you to accept credit card payments online, with a per-transaction fee from PayPal. If you integrate this account type with ShootProof, your clients will make their purchase selections in their galleries, and in the final checkout steps, they will be taken to PayPal to complete their transaction. We redirect the client to PayPal, where they can pay via credit card or their own PayPal account. You'll receive your funds to your PayPal account immediately, and will receive your order details, marked as "paid,"  from ShootProof. 

*It's important to note that because clients are redirected to PayPal to complete their payments, PayPal Standard (for Business) cannot be used to collect credit card payments on ShootProof invoices. If you would like to collect credit card payments using invoices, consider choosing a different payment gateway option. Click here to learn about and sign up for a PayPal Business Standard account.
