OPS’s No Print Product (NPP) option allows studios to offer any type of product or service that you would like to sell on our OPS e-commerce websites. Many of our studio accounts have told us NPP’s have opened up a new level of sales and profit potential to them because they can offer their customers specialty products and services that are not available in OPS’s standard catalog. Typically OPS studios use the NPP option to sell custom items as varied as Yearbooks, Sitting Fees, or Personalized Custom Products such as Banners, Yard Signs, Posters and much more.
PrePay Credits/Package Deposits are our most popular No Print Product option because it can serve two purposes. The first purpose would be to collect a deposit or sitting fee for Volume projects or Portrait Sessions. NNP with Sports and Dance School projects are especially useful for collecting Pre-Payments and collecting data for your shoot. Which is the 2nd reason why NPP’s are so popular. No Print Products with PrePay will create a database of all your project orders which will include Names, Addresses, and email addresses. This data can be used to create Barcodes or QR Codes for your project’s shoot!
- No Print Products can be used as Part of a Package or as a Single Order item.
- NPP’s are available with any type of project, whether it’s a PrePay, Batch/Proof or Individual Re-Orders.
- You can offer as many No Print Products you like on any project. (Such as 1, 2 or 3 different changes of clothing)
- Ship to Home or Batch Orders Shipping are available. (Only one shipping service per order.)
- Your studio will receive an email notification automatically when a client purchases a NPP from one of your reorder galleries. Email notifications are also sent out when NPP’s are ordered on a Proof/Batch projects when the project is sent to ACI for printing. There are no email notifications for PrePay orders. (Emails are sent when your prepay order is converted to a Batch order and sent to the lab.
