Sorry, I’ve found that you’re actually mentioning where you’re located. My bad.September 20, 2016 at 12:22 am #28001
Without diving too deep into the site I’d have to say that the very first impression with that slideshow is not very appealing. The sunset image lacks interest and the butterfly and the cat seem to be horizontally stretched. I’d suggest to use your best work that actually fits into the slider.
Also, I couldn’t find any indication of where you’re located or who you are. The lack of location makes that “Models Needed” page useless. And of course it’s building trust with potential buyers.September 19, 2016 at 10:39 pm #27997
I’m with Songquan, NO to both.
I think both ideas are part of the problem Symbiostock tries to solve.
First, if you “over-produce” then it means you’re not editing tight enough. Nobody wants sub standard or boring content anyway, not even when it’s free.
Second, “free” (or super low priced) and “subscriptions” are exactly how photographers became dissatisfied with agencies. Not smart to repeat this strategy IMO.
Symbiostock is about simplicity. Client is searching for an image, finds it on Symbiostock, pays for it. That’s it. No registration needed, no credits to buy, no future ad spamming. If we give this away then we give up what sets us apart from most agencies.September 3, 2016 at 3:38 am #27765August 11, 2016 at 9:54 pm #27618August 9, 2016 at 1:29 am #27576
One of the reviewers (in fact the only one) of the plugin on wordpress.org says it’s not mobile friendly/compatible.
I was a little shocked when I noticed at visitor and ad campaign statistics that 80% (eighty) of my visitors/responders were using mobile devices. Looks like the desktop/laptop is no longer the device of choice for most users.August 9, 2016 at 1:23 am #27574
That’s theme related. Looks like you’re using Symbiostock Express which I don’t. But I’m sure someone else can advise.August 9, 2016 at 12:18 am #27566
I think the main issue is probably finding a fulfillment partner that can print and/or ship world wide.August 9, 2016 at 12:15 am #27565
WooCommerce -> Settings -> Products -> Shop Page
That’s where you set what’s supposed to be displayed on your shop page. Choose “Image Categories” and that should solve the problem, if I understood it correctly.August 9, 2016 at 12:09 am #27564
I think Steve is onto something. I’m guessing there’s no separation (like a comma) between individual keywords in your IPTC meta data.August 9, 2016 at 12:07 am #27563August 8, 2016 at 1:24 am #27543
How do you tell FotoMoto to use the unwatermarked full size file for the print fulfillment?August 2, 2016 at 11:23 pm #27478
I assume you have installed WooCommerce and the symbiostock plugins, and have migrated (or uploaded) images?
For currency go to WooCommerce -> Settings -> General -> Currency and choose “Pounds Sterling” from the dropdown.
Prices are handled by licenses. Symbiostock -> Licenses
Create a new or modify an existing one that applies to the size you want to offer. Set a price for that size. Then update the pricing to the products (images) you’d like to apply it to (this may take a while depending on the amount of images).July 31, 2016 at 12:44 am #27457
Hi Christine, welcome!
1. The business side of Symbiostock is completely handled by WooCommerce. So yes, I believe WC has everything in place to be operated in most (if not all) countries.
2. You can migrate your old Symbiostock to the new plugin version. It’s not a one-click-process but you could have the new version running within a day or two. http://www.symbiostock.org/docs/migrating-from-legacy-symbiostock/July 24, 2016 at 2:52 am #27363
