How do I set up digital download sales?

If you sell digital copies of your images, ShootProof can automate that process for you - no more burning CDs or creating USB drives full of images for your clients! If you want to offer free digital downloads to your clients, read more about setting that up, here.

You can sell individual photos, where the client will add single images to his or her cart. You can also choose to sell all of the photos in an Album, which is helpful for photographers who need to sort their images into groups, but do not want their clients to have access / to be able to purchase all of the images in the entire gallery. (For example, school photographers may have a gallery for School A, and an Album for each student; selling all photos in an album would give a parent the photos of his or her own child but not the images of the other students in the school.)  The third option is to sell all of the photos in the gallery.

You can choose to sell your original images (the exact files you've uploaded to ShootProof, up to 50MB each) as digital downloads, or as a custom size. To learn about setting up sales for low-resolution versions of your files, click here.


To set up automatic digital download sales of full-resolution files:

  1. Go to Commerce > Pricing
  2. Click on the Price Sheet you'd like to use (or create a new one)
  3. Click on the Digitals group. It's inactive by default, so you can choose to offer digital images on some price sheets and not on others if you wish.
  4. Toggle on to activate the types of digital downloads you'd like to sell (individual photos, all photos in an Album, or all photos in a Gallery)
  5. Set a price for each type of digital download you've chosen to sell
  6. Optional: Rename your digital downloads and add a description

*ShootProof will automatically deliver the files when the client checks out and the order is marked as paid. The quality of the images will be the original level of quality uploaded to ShootProof.

To set up self-fulfilled digital download sales:

  1. Go to Commerce > Pricing
  2. Click on the Price Sheet you'd like to use (or create a new one)
  3. Click on the Digitals group
  4. Click the Add Self-Fulfilled Item button
  5. Name your digital downloads and set a price

*ShootProof does not deliver these files to your client. Items in this group will need to be delivered to your client outside of ShootProof.
