Creating Packages

Packages give you the option to take multiple products and sell them for one set price. This multi-product package may include vendor partner, self-fulfilled, and digital products. Packages can be created to use only one photograph or multiple photographs. Once you have created your package, you can edit and delete products within the package at any time. Prices are set under Packages and not under the Price List as other products are.

Packages can only be made available using one currency. If you want a package that is sold using two currencies, you will needs to make two separate packages each containing the same products, for each currency.

Packages can be located under any category in the shopping cart. However, if the package uses multiple vendors, at checkout the package will be broken up into these separate categories. For this reason, you will need to give a selling price for each vendor.

Steps for selling packages

Creating a package product

  1. In Edit View, select SELLING from the Main Menu.
  2. Under Selling, click Packages.
  3. Click Create New. A new page will load.
  4. Type a name for your price list next to Package:
  5. Select the tab for which currency you would like to add products and accept payment from the drop-down. Choose the radial for Single Photo Package if only one photograph is used for all the package products. Or choose Multi-Photo Package if multiple photographs are used for the products.
  6. Click Add Products. A pop-up window will load to select products from.
  7. Select the category of the product you would like to add.
  8. Check the boxes next to the items you would like to add to your price list.
  9. Click Add Selected Products. Your package will be updated with all of the items added, listed by category. Repeat steps 6 through 9 until you have added all your products.

Once all your products are chosen, you may need to configure these products. Digital products and self-fulfilled products require little configuring other than determining their set selling price, while vendor products require a number of additional settings.

  1. Select the category of the product.
  2. Choose then color correction setting you wish to use for the products under that category.
  3. Select the specific product.
  4. Check the paper options you wish make available to your clients.
  5. Set cropping and color conversion options by clicking the link and making the changes in the pop-up window that appears.
  6. Set the total quantity of this specific product that will be part of your package.
  7. If your product has framing and mounting option, click the Frame and Mount button, and add the options you want from the pop-up window that appears.
  8. Repeat steps 3 to 7 until you have made changes to all products in the category. Set the selling price for this product category. It is highly recommended the selling price is higher than the total base price.
  9. Repeat steps 1 to 8 until you have made changes to all categories, as each vendor requires their own selling price. Click Save.


If the option is Next rather than Save, you will be taken to the customization screen for the specific package. Otherwise, please follow these steps to customize a package presentation.
