How to Show Others Your Book

To show others your book online, simply send or post this link: http://www.prestophoto.com/bookstore/ and then add the id# of your book (this can be found in your book preview's url).

For example, this is what a recent book link would look like:
http://www.prestophoto.com/bookstore/161764

To make your book viewable to people without an existing account, please follow these steps:

1) Go to the project preview page. Click the blue edit button, next to the Layout and Flip Preview button.

2) Click "Show Public Customers a Custom Preview". This will enable the Layout preview to your customers.

3) Click "My Account" from the drop down list by your name at the top right of your dashboard. Then click "Preferences".

4) Scroll down to "User Information". Switch it to public. Then click "Change Preferences".

Your book should be viewable to your customers!

Making your Layout Preview Public

After logging into your account, visit the Webstore for your book and click the Edit button (the blue button with a pencil) in the top right corner. When the Layout Preview opens, check the box for "Show public customers a custom preview" and close the Preview - that's it!

You Are Ready to Sell Your Work to the World

The commissions due to you are based on payments received by us for your book sales. This means that your commissions may be adjusted for refunds or fraudulent orders for which we do not receive payment. We will make a good faith effort to pay you using the contact information in our records. If you make changes in your remission information it may delay your commission payment. Additional terms of payment can be found in our Member Agreement. Please note: Your commissions are listed under your shop column using the "My Sales and Commission link".

Payment Schedule

Payments are made on the first of the month. Commissions are paid for all closed sales 60 days or older. For example: commission payment for a sale on February 15 will post on May 1. All commission payments are made in USD and are not available in other currencies.

Payment Options

We offer three payment options.

1. Store Credit

If you select store credit as your payment choice, commissions are converted to store credit with no minimum requirement for payout as long as all of your tax and address information is complete (if required).

2. PayPal

If you select PayPal as your payment choice (by filling in the PayPal Email field on your Change remission address and settings page) AND your accumulated commissions are $25 or more, AND all of your tax and address information is complete (if required), you'll receive your commissions.

PayPal may charge the recipient fees based on the type of your account. See PayPal Fee Schedule for details.

3. Paper Check

If you select paper checks as your payment choice with a selected address, AND your accumulated commissions amount to $50 or more, AND all of your tax and address information is complete (if required), you'll receive your commissions on or before the end of the month 60 calendar days after the sale.

The $50 threshold must be met for sales in that commission period. For example, your commissions for sales through March 31st must total $50 or more in order to receive a payment by June.

Store Credit

by Stevie, 07 Jun 2017 (02:51 UTC)
I have a $20 store credit under my account, but when I go to checkout it's not automatically applied. How do I use that credit to purchase items? Thank you. -Stevie

Hi Stevie,

Until a payment method is selected for commissions, money is held in escrow.

Since you have now selected Store Credit as your method of payment, I have gone ahead and applied that to your account (: You should now see that when you go to check out!

Future commissions are paid on the 1st of the month for commissions earned over the past 60 days.

Let us know if you have any other questions!

Memory Book

by Michelle Wibbelsman, 10 Jan 2012 (02:03 UTC)
I need to give family access to viewing and purchasing a memorial book, but I am not clear on how they should search on PrestoPhoto. I have assigned a password for family in the options, but do they need to register? access the site under my sign in? type in the title? This process is unclear. Thank you in advance. Michelle

Michelle,

Greetings from PrestoPhoto!

They will need to have an account with us in order to make the purchase, but not to look at the book!

You will need to give them the URL www.prestophoto.com/shop/ <-then the product ID#. This will take them directly to the page where the book is offered. If it is protected by a password they will be asked to enter the password. The page will then be visible and they can move through the purchasing process.

If you have any further questions please let us know!

Best,

I am trying to do this as well, but not getting it to work.

I go to www.prestophoto.com/shop

Then I'm searching the store by the product ID.

Nothing is coming up.

I'm sure I'm missing a step, but what?

Jennifer, your books are set to Hidden, so you need to provide the direct link in order for other customers to place an order. The direct link is www.prestophoto.com/shop/your product ID.

The product ID can be found by logging into your account and clicking on "My Projects". The IDs are underneath the titles of your projects.

Sharing Book

by Megan, 03 Dec 2009 (17:02 UTC)
I am trying to share my book with family to let them order. I do not want a commission however, I would like them to have the option to view the pages in the book. I can do this in my account but they are only able to see the cover through the link. Did I miss a step?

This is the link I have... http://www.prestophoto.com/shop/58164#

I can see pages in my account but they cannot.

Thanks for your help!

Megan,

Edit the product, scroll down, and check "Show Preview".

This will allow your family to see both the preview PDF and Pageflip preview.
