F.A.Q.

VEND PHOTO CART

What is the Vend photo cart?

Vend is the most forward thinking photo cart in the industry. Its unique interface was built with HTML5 and received a WC3 report of 0 errors making it one of the purest HTML5 applications on the planet. The well thought out interface and robust platform allowed us to create a photo cart that works almost identically on the desktop and iPad. In addition, we never take a percentage of sales, and we always allow you to use any print lab you want.

FEATURES

Can I brand my Vend photo cart?

Yes. With just about all of our products, we want the interface to be branded to match your companies identity. You can modify colors and add your logo to make sure that your clients know where they are.

Can I sell packages?

Yes. You can now add package options for your clients to choose from. Each package has a title, image, description, and specific image formats all set up by you.

Can I sell products?

Yes. You can now set up products for your clients to add to their cart. You can also assign image formats to a product if needed (ie: 12 images for a calendar).

How do "favorites" work?

Favorites are now directly built-in to Vend’s interface with a thumbs-up icon. Your users can flag favorites right from the wall, and filter out images at a glance.

Can clients Zoom & Pan?

Users with smaller resolutions can now "zoom" into the image (no bigger than 1000px in either direction) and pan around to see more detail about each photo they may be interested in.

Can I offer discount codes?

Yes. You can set up a code for a specific (client set) or globally for all of the sets. In addition, you can offer your clients a percentage off the entire bill or an exact amount. This will come in handy when people prepay.

Can clients share their order with friends and family?

Now, your clients sessions gets saved and can be accessed from another location via their email address. So, they can have other family members login and see their current order. This makes long distance proofing easy and possible.

How do i send the link to my clients?

We have added a popular feature that you all seemed to like about our Flaunt slideshow. The Output feature. This allows you to set up emails in bulk to blast information to. In addition, we capture everyone’s email that views a proofing set.

Can I watermark my images?

Our system allows for images no larger than 1000 pixels in either direction. The interface will auto resize based on the browser to accommodate the largest images possible. Since we allow for such large images, we create a true watermarking mechanism. You can have a thin one pixel "x" run through the center of the image and/or your logo add to the image.

ORDERS, PAYMENT & PROCESSING

Can clients pay for photos with a credit card?

VEND has flexible payment methods that include the ability to set offline payments, receive payment via PayPal standard or can accept credit card payments via Stripe, Authorize.net, and PayPal merchant (Website Payment Pro). You will need an SSL certificate if you want to process credit cards in Vend.

In addition, the system will be able to calculate shipping vs local pickup, taxes for the US/Canada/Europe, and add fees for miscellaneous items.

Please note: there may be fees to use these vendor's services.

What does it look like when an order comes in? Invoices?

The video above will share with you the incoming order features including invoices.

Can I use any lab I want?

Yes. We are not tied to any specific lab. So once the order comes in, you can prepare the print ready images and send them to your lab of choice.

COMPETITORS

How is Vend different from competitor's products?

When we asked our clients what they wanted in a photo cart, it came down to two things. First, they wanted a photo cart that was not ugly. Something that they can brand and looks like it wasn't designed in the 90's. Second, they were sick of paying a percentage of their sales to the vendor. So, we created a photo cart that challenged the ugly cart designs that are everywhere and we never take a percentage of your sales.
