Custom Digital Delivery

Photographers can easily send customized digital downloads to customers using SimplePhoto's Custom Digital Delivery feature. After finalizing work in Photoshop or your tool of choice, upload and send the digital file via text and email. Some examples of digital products include retouched images, personalized images with name and year, images with backgrounds and foregrounds, class composites, multi-pose collages, holiday-themed images, images with added school/sport logo, magazine covers, memory mates, coloring pages to print from home, and more!

To enable the Custom Digital Delivery feature: Check the box next to Custom Digital Delivery inside the Gallery & Prepay Settings screen.

Custom Digital Delivery can be sent in multiple ways:

  • Standalone digital delivery: Click the Send Digital Download button inside the Galleries pane on your Dashboard or inside the Folder Control Panel. A new "Digital Delivery" gallery will be generated and your account's Default Custom Digital Delivery Price List will be associated. When a customer clicks on the "Purchase More Prints" button in the digital download gallery link sent via text message, they will be directed to the newly created gallery.
    • When the Send Digital Download button on the Dashboard is used to send a standalone digital delivery, the generated gallery will be added to a new "Digital Delivery" folder. 
    • When the Send Digital Download button on the Folder Control Panel is used to send a standalone digital delivery, the generated gallery will be added to that folder.
    • The Standalone Default Custom Digital Delivery Price List can be adjusted inside the Price List Settings screen.
  • Digital delivery tied to an existing gallery or prepay event: Click the Send Digital Download button inside the Gallery Control Panel or Event Control Panel. No "Digital Delivery" gallery is generated in this case.  When a customer clicks on the "Purchase More Prints" button in the digital download gallery link sent via text message, they will be directed to the selected gallery.
  • Digital delivery tied to an existing order: Click the Upload images and send digital delivery button inside an order receipt. No "Digital Delivery" gallery is generated in this case. The customer name, email address, and phone number will be pre-populated in the digital download upload form. When a customer clicks on the "Purchase More Prints" button in the digital download gallery link sent via text message, they will be directed to the gallery associated with the selected order.

To view details about the digital deliveries sent using the Custom Digital Delivery feature, click on the  Custom Digital Deliveries link in the Reports tab. The contents of the digital download email will be included in the details for each digital download.
