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 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.

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.
