Digital Downloads for Packages
It would be good to have digital downloads available as an option for packages.
Creating package deals for digital downloads.
I'm new to your site and I would like to sell 5 photos for $25.00 from a Gallery. Currently my customers would have to purchase and download a entire gallery which will contain hundreds of pictures and 99% of the pictures don't pertain to them. Do to the large volume of pictures we take on a on a daily basis it is not possible for us to create small and galleries.
Currently your competitors offer this service so it's looking like I will have to go to them.
customers have requested the ability to download digital as a package deal or special.
As it is, the customer can purchase either ONE digital download, or the whole gallery. I have a client who gave me some interesting feedback, and said he wished there was an option to purchase say, 10 or 20 downloads for a percent discount. He said that there really aren't a lot of people who would really want an ENTIRE gallery of images from a wedding or photo booth, but in his case he'd love to purchase 30 or 40 files from friends' weddings This client has been involved in three weddings of mine now-twice as a groomsman, and most recently as the groom, so I really value his opinion and feedback. I had thought of this before myself, but now that I've had a client suggest it I thought I would formal request it as a function on Smug Mug! Thanks in advance for considering this!
Allow downloads to be added to custom photo packages. My customers prefer downloads and I want to bundle downloads and prints. I want to make it quick and easy for them to choose from various package options and downloads NEEDS to be part of that.
It would be nice to have digital downloads as an option in the custom packages area. I've had customers asking if they can order multiple downloads and I'd like to create some sort of package deal with that to not only make it cheaper for them, but to make it easier for me. PLEASE CONSIDER THIS!!!
Allow multi purchase discounts or packaging eg for downloads 1 for $3, 3 for $6, 5 for $8 etc
I would like to use this site for fundraising for the community sporting clubs I am involved in
I'd like the option of allowing purchase of a download only if at least a minimum size print is also purchased for the same file.
Provide a package pricing for uses to buy a selected amount of digital downloads by size type. Something to fill the gap between regular price by individual and whole gallery download.
offer some way to get a discount on a digital dowload, when you purchase a print version of that picture
ABility to buy multiple digital downloads for $x instead of pricing each picture download individually
I know my customers would love to have a package deal that would include the digital copy of their photo and i would love to be able to offer it to them! :)
Currently, you can only select pictures in a package. You should be able to include digital downloads and merchandise as part of a package.
would love to be able to add other products to packages besides just prints :)
Add digital images to package options! I want to be able to give my customers the ability to purchase all digital images from their session for a flat price!
All digital downloads to be bundled in packages!

So I figured that multiple digital downloads can be accomplished in a couple of different ways. one is easier than the other but has different criteria.
1. place all of a group or shots of an individual into one gallery and allow that gallery to be downloaded.
2. Have the client favorite multiple pics from multiple galleries and then I would take those favorites and upload them into a new gallery and the client could download the gallery which would include multiple picks from multiple galleries.
I hope that makes sense.

Thanks for taking the time to give us feedback. This particular feature request is a popular one that we've heard from other customers as well. I'm going to consolidate your vote with an existing idea. Feel free to add any comments you have to that thread.
Please create a customization for creating various digital download packages!

going on 4 years here guys!!

With many bulk photo sites adopting download sales only, customers are buying more downloads over prints. Having many customers who buy multiple images, volume download packages are greatly needed. A copy of a individual or commercial use release should be delivered to the customer - final purchase should be considered the electronic agreement of the terms. The photographer should receive a copy with the customer info. Thank you for putting this on the top of your to-do list!!
Please add this - I sell digitals but can't use smugmug for the sales - this is definitely a much needed feature.
I want to add my voice to this request. It's obviously a much-needed feature, and I hope that we'll be given an update on progress ASAP.
Please please please add this!!!
Does anyone care or read these comments? I came to this page to propose a feature and this feature was already requested in this thread, which looks to be more than 4 yrs old but I don't why it is not implemented yet.
This is badly needed for Power users who have low sales.
Since 2010, people have been waiting for a response to this request. It has become standard to be able to purchase downloadable photo packages if you participate in a sporting event. As a photographer I would like to appear to be up to date with technology, in addition as noted in other posts, it will decrease time I have to spend creating CDs or emailing files. If this is not available for me to offer to my clients by October 2014, I will need to look for another company to host my website.

I would also like this feature available greatly. It's a fundamental aspect of marketing the images been able to offer a "sliding" pricing scale, based on quantities purchased. Like others I would have to fulfil this outside of the SmugMug site which defeats the purpose of me creating a site!
This needs creating quickly!

I offer packages that are prints plus digital, and would love to have that be automated with Smugmug! It will make the difference between my selecting Portfolio and Pro.

First let me say great job on finally adding Paypal. This is Excellent.Now Moving Forward. I need to be able to let my clients have the option of adding both prints AND DOWNLOADS to photo packages. The option is available for prints but not for downloads. I now have to manually fulfill their request for the downloads which takes up way too much of my time and clients have to wait until i get back to my computer to facilitate them. Allow package options to be applicable across the board. The addition of keywords to make bulk file searching easier is an added benefit when creating big packages with images from large galleries.

Dear Smugmug, you lose money from that, not as a mean to punishment, no.
I am forced to drive my clients away from your shopping card and deal with direct payment in my bank etc, if they want to buy bigger digital packages.
In the end i end up losing a lot of my time with emails, searching for files etc, the client loses time going to the bank, you lose 15% your profits, we all lose.
Please consider implementing a package option for digital downloads that ideally works with keywording enabled
i.e. search for keyword 342, and... buy all search results with 10 euros for example.
So from each event, each customer can buy all the photos that concern him, easily and fast.
As i said, you already lose money from this, since only the past 10 days, i have done more than 20-30 packages via e-mails and bank accounts, instead of smugmug sales cart.
dont waste any more time.
I DESPERATELY WANT THIS
Henrik Sandin commented
I want this!! It would be so useful to have a coupon that gives clients a set number of file downloads for free or for a set price!!

I just spent some time reading the comments over the years and if I were evaluating this I an option for implementation, I couldn't be clear exactly what the request is. Most seem to want some intermingling of digitals with prints as a package. Some simply want to have a package price a certain amount of downloads. Of course, these could be any of types of downloads. I am wondering if the requests could be separated so that action might take place.
Bill Johnson commented
This has been reasonably well supported and been a request option since March of 2010. We recently past the three year anniversary. Perhaps it's time to hear back from SmugMug as to why this isn't even planned yet. There must be implementation issues technical or otherwise that prevent us from having it.
Make it possible for a customer to choose one or a group of photos to download as package deals. For example in a gallery of 100 photos give us the capability to create packages for a certain number of download at a price we choose.
