How do I set up digital download sales?

  • Updated

With ShootProof, you can sell two types of digitals: ShootProof-Fulfilled digitals and Self-Fulfilled digitals. 

If you want to offer free digital downloads to your clients, read more about setting that up here.

In this article, you will learn about:

ShootProof-Fulfilled Digitals

Self-Fulfilled Digitals

ShootProof-Fulfilled Digitals

Save time when you sell ShootProof-Fulfilled digitals! We automatically send ShootProof-Fulfilled digitals to your client as soon as they pay for their order.

You can offer resized digitals and ShootProof will automatically resize the images for you - no need to upload multiple copies of the same image.

When your clients purchase ShootProof-Fulfilled digitals, we’ll always remove any watermarks applied in the gallery before we send the files.

If you’d like your client to receive a print release with their purchase, add the release in your Gallery Settings, under Shopping Cart. The downloadable release will be included in the email containing the purchased images.

After completing their order, your client will automatically receive a confirmation email. ShootProof works quickly behind the scenes to bundle their purchased images into a zip file and will send the zip in an email to your client within minutes. 

Remind your clients that they’ll need to open the zip file on a computer - not a mobile device, as most are not compatible with zip files.

Use ShootProof fulfilled Digitals in conjunction with Free Digital Rules to set up an easy workflow for providing some digital files for free while taking advantage of the opportunity to upsell additional files for optimal gallery sales.

Please Note: ShootProof-Fulfilled digitals are sent to the client as soon as they pay for their order, so there is no way to edit or replace the file before it's sent. The client will receive the file that was in the gallery at the time of purchase. If you need to make edits to files before they are sent, you will need to set up Self-Fulfilled digitals in the price sheet

Setting up ShootProof-Fulfilled Digitals

  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 category

  4. Toggle on the types of digital downloads you'd like to sell
     
    • Individual Photos lets clients purchase single photos
    • All Photos in an Album lets clients buy all the photos in an album by adding this item to their cart
    • All Photos in the Gallery lets clients buy all of the photos in the gallery with one click

  5. Set a price for each type of digital download you've chosen to sell

  6. Optional: Change the name of the item by clicking the blue Edit button. The name is client-facing, so give it a descriptive name your client will understand, or simply leave the default description “Full Resolution”. You can also change the size of the sizes being sold here and add a description. 

Self-Fulfilled Digitals

If you need time to edit your photos or want to be able to send files at a later time, you will need to set up the Self-Fulfilled Digitals option instead. With this option, you will need to send those files to the client when you are ready. 

Setting Up Self-Fulfilled Digitals

  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 category

  4. Click the Add Self-Fulfilled Item button

  5. Name your digital downloads and set a price

Please Note: ShootProof does not deliver these files to your client. Items in this category will need to be delivered to your client outside of ShootProof.
