The Zenfolio e-commerce platform is designed for photographers. It provides them with the flexibility and features to get from shooting to selling in as little time as possible.
When clients like what they see, they buy more. From your uploaded originals we automatically generate several image sizes and use the best size to fit the viewer’s screen. We make sure that resized images are crisp and the colors look great. Your clients can easily navigate through photos displayed in clean, professional layouts customizable without any coding.
Your website empowers clients with several ways to view your work. They can navigate through photos displayed on photo pages with or without thumbnails, use the dim-the-light view, in the largest possible size taking the entire screen, or in slick full-screen slideshows with soundtracks.
The creative process often requires iterations, and the Zenfolio proofing solution facilitates this dialog. Your clients can easily create sets of their favorite photos and share them with you. You will have access to these favorite sets for post-processing, retouching, creating albums, or placing clients’ orders. A special Lightroom plug-in allows opening client favorite sets in Lightroom to save you time.
With just a few clicks, you can configure access control: lock your galleries with a password, make them private, or limit access to certain people. Hide your galleries behind an access ID, or require visitor registration before revealing your galleries.
Create a keyword-searchable mini site for a multi-subject job. Keyword your photos with a unique identifier, such as a bib number or a student ID for each participant and they’ll be able to easily find their own photos.
Events also make it easy to communicate with your clients – upload a list of your participants and you’ll be able to send emails in bulk that include individual details for each person, such as personalized links to their photos, passcodes, and include a preview of their images.
The shopping cart and the entire checkout experience are fully integrated with your website, including your brand, and are easily customizable with a simple point-and-click. The shopping cart is designed for purchasing photo products, with features like precise cropping, live framing preview, photo resolution checks, and photo package configuration.
We’ve partnered with the best print vendors in the industry that have proven quality
and attention to detail. You can take advantage of our complete integration with
these vendors. All you do is take great photos, select products, and set your pricing

If you want to sell self-fulfilled products, the Zenfolio e-commerce platform is the choice of professionals worldwide. You can define every detail of your products – configure shipping methods, sales tax or VAT, and payment methods. We will take orders, send you notifications, and provide customer support.
Even if you have never sold photos online before, with intuitive price list management you will be ready to sell in no time. You can create as many price lists as you want and assign them to your albums or individual photos. Using a formula, you can quickly price all products offered for sale as a batch with a combination of fixed and percentage markups.
Don’t be surprised if your clients demand digital images in addition to traditional printed products. The Zenfolio selling platform makes you more competitive and allows you to cater to the needs of your clients by giving them the option of purchasing digital images, from low-resolution Facebook images to original files. All you need to do is specify resolution size, choose a license agreement and set prices. Then digital downloads will appear in your integrated shopping cart.
Have we mentioned that the Zenfolio e-commerce platform is flexible? It can easily be adapted to the way you are doing business today. The tradition of offering packages in addition to á la carte products has been a popular marketing strategy for photographers. The Zenfolio selling solution allows you to pull a variety of products together into a package, set the price, and sell it.
You can specify whether orders are sent to fulfillment partners automatically, or whether they will be reviewed and approved by you first. Approving orders gives you the ability to fine-tune the images before the order gets submitted to the lab. That way you can do final retouching, fix cropping, throw in a promotional product, or offer a discount. Delight your clients and they will keep coming back again and again!
When you earn profits from selling, the proceeds are deposited into your Zenfolio account. You can request payment via bank check or PayPal at any time. There are no limits, no minimums, and no forced schedules – get paid when you want to get paid.
The Zenfolio e-commerce platform allows you to sell products in multiple currencies and deliver them to customers worldwide. Products fulfilled by Zenfolio partners can be sold in US Dollars, Pounds Sterling, Euros, Canadian Dollars, and Australian Dollars – these are the currencies supported by our partners.
