Custom options for self-fulfilled products

I'd like to be able to add some options for customers to choose from on self-fulfilled products. Such as paper type, colors, finish, etc. A few preset ones would be fine along with the option to add my own.

This feature has been reviewed and given the current roadmap this will unfortunately be not able to happen in 2016. We will reassess at a later time.

    I hope someone else starts offering self-fulfilled. Maybe a little competition will light a fire under you. I sell self-fulfilled because what you offer doesn't compare to Bay and White Wall, especially in the print size and options area. Shipping has remained really expensive as well. I'm disappointed in this decision.

    Can this all be resolved by simply moving to the Advanced Plan? Extra $10.00 month. Seems reasonable

    Yep, the self fulfillment is doing my head in as well. I offer a number of options to a mounted print such as several frame types. Adding each one as its own product is tedious and makes for an unwieldy list. I am in trial mode and this may prevent me progressing

    I just started building my zenfolio site, and I have hit this self-fulfill problem wall. There is a clear push to have the products fulfilled by zenfolio partners, which is fine if thats what you want. But it is a useless service to me. As an art photographer I would never send something to a client without producing it and proofing it on my end. So ALL my products are self fulfilled and they have unique sizes and finishes. I have been very impressed with zenfolio, but this issue is taking away a lot of that luster.

    The ability for the client to preview Black and White or Sepia instead of uploading a completely separate file would be stellar. I feel like I pay a fairly substantial cost for my Zenfolio account both through the yearly contract and the portion that is taken out of my self-fulfied products to not have something so very basic built into my shopping cart. This has been discussed and definitely requested, I'm curious if this will ever be an option.

    How easy it would be to have an option to see the clients image change from colour to black and white or sepia. Thus allowing the client to select the style before ordering

    This would be very useful as we use Zenfolio for our lighting business and would like to sell our own products that are not related to Photography, i.e. lighting cable - same product, just lots of different colours

    This is the one issue that will ultimately make me decided whether to continue this service or not. I'm about to offer products that none of the partners offer and all come in different sizes/colors.

    Any update - under view for over a year... Would love to be able to treat self-fulfilled similar to vendor fulfilled. Cannot imagine a technical reason that it should not be available - just turn it on please.

    YESYESYESYESYES!!! Instead of needing to create 10 different versions of the same product (that are just different sizes) let us have a few custom drop down menus. For example, I sell a Smart iPad case. I want to have one case, that has a drop down menu to choose which model iPad, the color, and have the price be adjusted based off of their choices.

    I would love to be able to upload templates to self fulfilled products. I could sell as sports towel, where they drag in their image, type name in node, Year in node. Then when I saw the order, I could "download" this image and use it to order since it is to spec. YES, this would save me HOURS and I would be much more likely to use this for all my sports and sing your praises to every photographer and non photographer who would hear me!!!!!! Seriously, I would. I might even send cookies.

    It would also be helpful to have packages that allow a limited number of different photos to be placed into a group of products. A Senior portrait session offering a series of different size prints and say allowing the choice of 3 images to be purchased in that package, though there may be 50 images to choose from.

    Adding categories to self fulfilled products list would be a very welcomed feature. I am currently self fulfilling orders for a custom t-shirt I offer and I had to create individual items for each type of shirt and size, ie. Womens Small, Womens Medium, Mens Large, Mens XLarge, etc. There are currently 34 different items in my self fulfilled list just for this one product. And forget about making changes to the product description, that usually takes me more than 3 hours.

    Would love to see this change implemented, I will be casting all my votes for this one.

    I agree with most everything in this thread. Not having the proper tools to build a self-fulfilled store front has been a large headache and requires way to much time. Unless this is addressed this will probably be my last year with Zenfolio as there are other services that are much more geared toward the self-fulfilling artist.

    I wouldn't leave it up to the customer to choose their paper type and finish.. they don't know what will look best :)!

    You can upload your own product images. A lot of companies will even give you stock images to use to help sell the product.

    It would be nice to be able to put "Album" -> "select size" type thing vs 3 separate entries.

    Not a huge deal but does clutter it up a little.

    This would be great i currently sell 3 types of USB stick it would look so much more professional to have 3 options under USB stick rather than 3 separate products
