A new and fast-loading uploader available

A new uploader based on the latest HTML-5 technology is available for users who use browsers that support this way of uploading - the "basic uploader". As to our knowledge, this technology is supported by latest versions of Firefox, Chrome and Safari. The new fast uploader is quickly available when the page loads, but is missing some of the advanced uploaders' features such as rotating photos, adding titles and descriptions, and detecting already uploaded photos.

If you want fast and easy upload, the basic uploader is a great way to go. All of the advanced uploaders remain available and ready for use.

Here you can see what the basic uploader looks like :

Enterprise users can create discount coupons

From now on, enterprise users can provide their customers with discounts on their photos and products.

The discounts are provided using a coupon system. Each enterprise user can have an unlimited number of various coupons in the "My Coupons" section which can be accessed by selecting the like labelled menu entry from the "My Stuff" menu. Only one coupon can be applied per order :  although your customers may have several coupons, they will be only able to use one per each order.

The coupons can provide either a percentual or a fixed discount and each coupon has an expiration date. Each coupon can have a minimum order price assigned. A coupon is applicable as long as the following conditions are met :

  • the minimum order price is lower than the total price of the order
  • the coupon is not expired
  • the net profit of the enterprise user is greater than the calculated discount on the whole order

Examples :

You can create a 15% discount coupon with the expiration date set at 1/1/2011.
You can create a $5 discount coupon on all orders above $30 with the expiration date set at 1/1/2012.
