We use ShootProof as our online gallery and fulfillment service and love them! They are one of the only online galleries that don’t take a cut of your sales. We use ShootProof to deliver electronic releases and contracts and to collect Client signatures on them.
As the name suggests, proofing is a big part of their services and we use ShootProof to make it easy and seamless for our Clients to select the images they want to buy and download them. We just send Clients a password protected link to their gallery and they can use it to download their images to any device.
ShootProof can also be used for print order fulfillment with e-commerce. Clients order the images they want printed, chose the size they want and the type of product (Metal, Canvas, or Print) and ShootProof takes care of everything! They send the image to the lab of your choice, pay the lab (out of the proceeds collected from the sale), the lab fulfills the order and drop ships directly to your Client and ShootProof pays you the difference without taking a commission. Its so easy!
They even have a free trial, if you’d like to try them out click here: ShootProof
