How do I resend digital downloads to customers?
Select the Order from the Orders tab and click Resend Download:
You can also resend the order from within a Job's Orders tab:
This tool resends the digital download to the email address captured in the order.
How long does it take for the client to receive the files?
Customers typically receive the download link via email instantly after purchase - but we recommend advertising a possible wait time if purchased with image options (like retouching, blemish removal, etc.). The link is valid for 60 days after purchase.
Below is an example of what the email looks like:
After clicking the Download Images Now button in the email, the customer's browser will download the compressed .ZIP folder.
Customer didn't receive their order
Unfortunately, there can be many reasons why a customer didn't receive their email, such as (but not limited to):
The customer entered an incorrect email address at checkout.
The customer's email address is protected by an aggressive third-party spam filter.
The order has been held and not released (due to Order Fulfillment Settings)
The order is waiting on image services (eg. retouching) before being released.
Customer didn't download the images in time (link expired)
Resending the digital file should resolve the issue, but don't hesitate to start a chat with us and provide the order number for help!
Images are reported too small/poor quality
Some people can believe file size and image size to mean the same thing - even when they have no direct correlation with each other.
We compress uploaded images to keep the overall file sizes tiny for many benefits, but the key thing to remember is that
Image File Size does not correlate to
Image Dimension Size
The digital files we send still maintain their source image pixel dimensions (unless explicitly ordered otherwise). You can learn more about this topic from this well-written article:
The customer can view the file properties (inspect on Mac) to confirm file image sizes.
Can I offer image services (retouching) with digital downloads?
