I'm really enjoying Zenfolio. I know they charge high service fees on top of my profit, but I shoot lots of High School Dance program stuff (groups, head shots, action dance photos, etc.). Really nice to not have to take lots of small checks to the bank and hope they all clear, or using the cell phone swipe thing. So far, Zenfolio is great. They ship my clients' products within a week. Just what I needed.

Any input on newest versions of Zenfolio vs Smugmug? I am using Smugmug now, but Zenfolio offers Instagram sharing and that's a plus. I'm not unhappy, but that's a feature I would like I think. Any reason to stay with Smugmug?

I mentioned earlier on this thread:
I had Smugmug and went with Zenfolio. I had no problems with Smugmug. They had excellent customer service and quick responses. I went with Zenfolio because of the lab choices I had. Otherwise both are excellent and you will or should not be disappointed with either one.

Perhaps do a trial with Zenfolio and see what you think. I find it easier to make changes and navigate thru the site. I have the premium business and find their customer service very good.

I've been hosting and processing orders through my own website/lab/Paypal/post office. What a hassle. Going to switch to someone else and just mark up a bit more. Based on this conversation, I may go with Zenfolio. Thanks to all who added to this conversation.

I don't think you will regret it. I've been with Zen for a year now, and it has really made things easier for me. Shoot it, Web it and Forget it.

For my portraits, they will go through me, and my normal sales process. For events, online makes more sense.

I've never tried Smugmug, but Zenfolio keeps updating their product and I like that. They recently added mobile buying to their service. I can either activate it or not. Some might prefer not, but I like it. Clients can see and buy anything with a cellphone or tablet.
