What happens when people buy photos?

Pixpa supports the Auto-Pickup feature of Fotomoto. When an order comes in. Pixpa passes the name of the original file onto Fotomoto which can then download the original, high-resolution file from the auto-pickup location that you would have specified in your Fotomoto account. For more information on Fotomoto Auto-pickup, click here.


If you are not using the Fotomoto’s Auto-pickup feature, then:

When a customer clicks on the “Buy Now” button and completes an order, you will receive an email with the order information and be prompted to upload the high-resolution image to your Fotomoto account so that Fotomoto can process the order. You do NOT have to upload any high-res images before making a sale.

Fotomoto prints, packages, and ships the order direct to the customer.

Troubleshooting

If the ‘Buy/Cart’ button does not work make sure you:

  1. Added the right Fotomoto ID to your Pixpa site settings, not the whole javascript code, but only the ID part as explained above.
  2. Be sure you’ve configured the right Primary or Alternate Site address in your Fotomoto settings. This must be the exact site address of your Pixpa website.
