How FotoStudio pays you more!

FotoStudio puts more money in your pocket than the competition. The following example compares a sample order for 10 4x6 prints and 2 8x10 prints. The comparisons are done between 3 professional labs - FotoStudio, PrintRoom, and ShutterFly Pro. For all orders, the prints will be sold at the same price - $4.00 for each 4x6, and $7.00 for each 8x10 - for an order cost of $54.00 to your client.

Notice that even though there is only a 2% or 3% difference in total service fees, the numbers show that final fees and costs subtracted from your profits are almost 50% more for both PrintRoom and Shutterfly, than of FotoStudio. The numbers speak from themselves.

Your profit on order $41.78 $35.48 $36.12

Wait... I thought the difference was only 2 or 3%????

Given the above numbers, you are probably thinking "that sure seems like a lot more than a 3% difference". And you are right - 3% of $54.00 is only $1.62, yet the numbers show that PrintRoom and Shutterfly keep almost 50% more of YOUR money than FotoStudio does.

Here's why:

  • PrintRoom has a 3% credit card processing fee added to each order, so their total service fee is 16% vs that of FotoStudio's service fee of 13% (FotoStudio doesn't charge a credit card fee). The 3% total difference in fees totals up to $1.62.
  • Your prints are much less expensive with FotoStudio ($5.98) versus PrintRoom ($9.88) and Shutterfly ($9.78).
  • When applying the service fees, we use a more generous method. PrintRoom and Shutterfly charge the service fee on the entire order total. On the other hand, FotoStudio charges the service fee after deducting the print cost.
