Things to Know about the Print Foto Money Plugin
How does installing the Print Foto Money plugin change the appearance of my website?
The look of your site does not change, but visitors who hover over a picture will see a “Print Me” button. On mobile devices, a long tap shows the “Print Me” button. As the site owner or administrator, you can determine which pages display the print button, and how the button looks. One exception to the hover effect is on a photo displayed in a NextGEN Gallery Lightbox. The Lightbox effect, when active, allows your photos to be viewed center-stage in a larger format whenever they are clicked on. When the Lightbox effect is activated on a page that is set to display the “Print Me” button, visitors will always see the “Print Me” button on the photo even without hovering.
What is the minimum size my photos must be to allow them to be printed on one or more products?
The minimum size picture that can be placed on an order is 400 x 400 pixels. This is roughly 4 inches x 4 inches. Larger photos will be offered more products to print on.
What happens when a photo is too small to be printed on a product?
The Print Foto Money plugin will measure each picture for you and will not display the “Print Me” button if the photo is too small.
Can customers buy more than one photo in an order?
Print Foto Money is based on the idea that most people are printing one special picture on one chosen product at a time. However, we intend to add the ability to choose more than one photo and product per order in the future.
How much is shipping?
Shipping is based on the actual cost of shipping by UPS or US mail. dotPhoto does not mark up shipping.
How much should I sell products for — and which products should I sell?
The default product set and their prices are determined by dotPhoto to be the most popular products at attractive prices. Most people start with this collection of products and prices — and then adjust their own prices on their merchandise over time.
What is the best size for a company logo?
If you’re displaying your company logo as a JPG image of at least the minimum size set to display the “Print Me” button (400 x 400 is the smallest) the “Print Me” button will appear on it when it is hovered over. If your site visitors want to click “Print Me” to place your logo on products then be sure it’s a high res image. We recommend a 2000 x 2000 pixel image with a 375 pixel margin around your logo in the center.
Can I set the markup to zero so that I make no money on the sale?
Yes. If you are only selling to friends and family, you may want to provide the ability to print photos for as little as possible. dotPhoto sells 4 by 6 prints for as little as 9 cents and provides very competitive prices on a wide variety of photo merchandise. To set the markup to zero, go to your dotPhoto Account’s pricing page.
Can I provide a coupon to give my friends a discount?
Not at this time. We will add coupon-ing and promotional capabilities in the future.
What is the Ordering Process?
Once the “Print Me” button on your photo is clicked this is the ordering process that is followed.
What file types are currently printable?
Currently only JPG files can display the “Print Me” button and be printed.
