We’re currently working on version 1.3 of Photography Orders. The goal for 1.3 was to flesh out a lot of the features, and expand the scope of what Photography Orders can do.

Better checkout and order processing

In v1.2, the checkout is handled either at Paypal or Google Checkout. In 1.3, the checkout is handled by Photography Orders, and the customer is then sent off to pay after completing the order on your site. Coupled with that, orders are now saved so you can process them from within Photography Orders.

We’re adding more payment options, including offline payment and Moneybookers.

Better gallery navigation for your customers

In 1.3 we’ve made some improvements to the customer interface including pagination, and the ability to go from one photo to the next without having to go back to the gallery overview. We’ve also added some aesthetic changes, for example, galleries now have a thumbnail of the first photo inside the gallery.

Public galleries

Event photographers will be able to upload galleries without the need to password protect them.

We’re looking forward to releasing v1.3 within the next couple of weeks. If any existing customers are interested in beta testing, shoot an email to info@photographyorders.com.
