I have been looking for a system where you can send out the invoice from, collect the payment and automatically have them deliver a link for zipped folder or download functions. Real estate agents are pretty impatient about getting their photos.
I do not deliver photos (tired of chasing payments) until payments have been completed. Unfortunately, this part is a manual release. So, if I am sending out my invoice (I am not sending the invoice until photos are ready to be delivered) in the morning then I will not be in front of my PC to deliver the photos until the evening if they paid after I left my home office. That gap could be eliminated with an auto release photo service when the invoice has been paid. Any suggestions?
I just talked to Barry Fisch who is the founder of gofullframe.com and an advertiser on the PFRE blog. Barry says:
In our system, you can watermark the photos. When the balance due on the project is paid, the watermarks will automatically be removed. Then the client can download the files from our system. If the account holder does not use that technique in their model, the watermarking is optional.
