We’re launching today two important updates for all our Pro Gallery owners. We believe in both cases that they make the service easier to use, and indeed both changes are as a direct result of your feedback and the continuing success of Pro Gallery.
Firstly, Pay Me is the new way to claim your earnings from your Pro Gallery. It’s now an entirely self-service process that you can use at any time. You’ll find the Pay Me button on both Gallery Admin and your PhotoBox sales reporting page. To make a claim simply:
o Complete seller details (inc VAT status)
o Choose either:
1.Transfer to PhotoBox cash account for spend on the site (2 year expiry and 5 day lead time)
2. Or PayPal account (14 day lead time).Please note that lead times are there to protect you from fraudulent claims
o You can make up to one claim a day for either part or the full amount of earnings
o A £1 handling fee is applied if the PayPal request is under £50
o For invoices go to your PhotoBox Order History page
o Please be aware that email requests for bank account transfers will only be honoured until end August 2009
o For more details on Pay Me see our FAQ section
You’ll also be glad to hear that the new password protection feature is now live. That means as a seller you can now add a password to individual collections and send this to the people you want to be able to view the collection. To set a password, just go to your collections tab and click ‘Set password’. The ones you’ve password protected will be indicated by the padlock icon, you’ll need to be logged out to see this on your own gallery. People can then click on the link you send them and will be asked for the password. You can remove or update the password any time you like.
Please let us know how you find these changes and any other comments you have on our Pro Gallery service.
