It would be good to have digital downloads available as an option for packages.

        The majority of my business is digital downloads. Including them in a package would help me sell both more downloads AND prints. I currently feel like i'm leaving money on the table...
        Please put a little more focus on downloads. (including coupons for them) It seems to be the main thing my clients are interested in these days.

        As a new smugmug user I'm astonished that there is no way to set a sliding price scale based on the number of downloads purchased. I would have thought this would be fundamental to the whole selling process.

        Consider this a vote with both hands (waving and screaming) ... yes yes yes - this is URGENTLY needed!!!

        Is there any word on if/when this will be implemented? (this is a four year old thread!!!)

        You need to offer buy packages, NOW, YESTERDAY if possible. You lose money (because i direct them to alternative ways of paying), i Lose money (cause i lose customers).

        Packages based on quantity, and much better, based on keyword.

        ASAP!

        Thank you.

        I offer digital downloads with some of my packages.... so in the write of the package, it is stated that once the once physical print order is placed, that the client will receive their digital files separately in download link via email....

      • Dennis S.Dennis S. commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        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
        Dennis

        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.

        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.

      • SventekozSventekoz commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        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.

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        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.

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        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!

      • Charlotte HarloffCharlotte Harloff commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        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.

      • George SpyrosGeorge Spyros commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        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.

        Thank you!

        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 SandinHenrik Sandin commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        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!!
