How Photographers Use CloudSpot to Easily Deliver Photos


hen it comes to selling prints online, you need a gallery service that’s up to your standards. You want something that can be an extension of your brand! One that creates a smooth client experience, gives you the tools you need to sell easily and makes a big difference in your business. 

That’s why we built CloudSpot!

Our custom Storefront lets your clients easily preview what they’re purchasing before they make their purchase, which makes selling prints and products a breeze. To get started, simply create a Free CloudSpot account! 

Collecting Payments

CloudSpot’s store allows you to easily collect payments from your clients in just a few clicks through the use of Stripe

Stripe is a payment service that allows you to accept credit and debit card payments directly in your gallery. They charge a small fee of 2.9% + $0.30 for each payment that you process, which means that you keep the profit from each sale. Signing into Stripe through CloudSpot is just a click of a button. As soon as you’re connected, you can start selling!

Choosing Your Products

One of the most important parts of curating an experience for your clients when leading them to purchase online is having the right selection of products. With Pricing Catalogs, you can easily choose which items you want to offer.

CloudSpot is designed to support two types of product fulfillment: Automatic Fulfillment and Custom Fulfillment. Let’s take a look at both!

Automatic Fulfillment

If you’re new to selling prints and products or are simply looking to make your life easier, automatic fulfillment is a great way to go. With Auto Fulfillment, you’re able to quickly choose which prints and products you’d like to offer to your clients directly from our partner labs: WHCC, Miller’s, and Mpix. From prints and canvases to metal prints and mounted prints, you’ll be able to choose from a wide range of beautiful items to offer! Automatically fulfilled products are also elegantly displayed directly in your Storefront so that your clients know exactly what they’re purchasing.

When orders are placed through Auto Fulfillment, your client’s information is immediately sent to your lab of choice for printing! The best part? Once those products are printed, they are shipped directly to your client’s home so that you don’t have to lift a finger!

Custom Fulfillment

If you’re looking for total control over your client’s experience when it comes to offering prints and products, Custom Fulfillment is a great way to go. With Custom Fulfillment, you can add any product that you’d like with just a few clicks. This makes it easy to offer any of your custom or specialty products you're used to. You can easily customize each product that you choose to offer with custom images and descriptions that will show in your Storefront!

When orders are placed using Custom Fulfillment, you’ll receive a notification that you’ve received a store order and can easily see the order information through CloudSpot. It’s up to you as the photographer to have those items printed and shipped to your clients with a lab of your choice.

Putting It All Together

Now that you’ve got your payments set up and your product offering situated, it’s time to customize your Storefront and get selling! Easily choose the banner images that show up in your Storefront to make your clients feel right at home. Then, simply turn the Store on in your client’s gallery, and boom! You’re ready to start making some extra money.
