Many members have been asking for integration with labs. We've gone back and forth on this, over a long period of time, to finally settle on what we feel is the simplest and most flexible solution.
We let you integrate easily with the lab of your choice -- with ANY lab, as long as they accept orders by email.
You simply define in your account the email address of your lab, and some information (e.g. instructions) for them.
When an order on your website is ready for delivery (e.g. paid), the system will automatically send an email to your lab to fulfill the order, in your own name. The email contains the order information, and a link to download the high-res files to print. The lab will then bill you directly.
Easy, flexible, simple.
Traditionally, ecommerce website providers have deeper integrations with one or several labs. It's very easy to take into use for the photographer, at least for basic products, and for the website provider, it is potentially a new revenue opportunity.
Ours is a different approach. It's more flexible, and more transparent. In the same way as we stay out of your relationship with your clients, we stay out of your relationship with your lab -- and make a living only out of the technology we offer.
Our solution lets you keep full freedom in defining your own products, and allows you to work with any lab that accepts orders by email -- like that small lab down the road that makes fantastic fine art prints (we love the idea of supporting small local businesses, by the way).
It lets you work with multiple labs for different products -- within the same client orders. It even lets you group orders to save on shipping!
