Price changes will take effect at the start of the next subscription period following the date of the price change. By continuing to use the Service after the price change takes effect, you accept the new price.

Purchases and Sales of Products

  • Platform. ShootProof provides a platform for third-party sellers (“sellers”) and buyers (“buyers”) to negotiate and complete transactions for photographic prints, photographic products or services (“Products”). Product orders are strictly a contract between buyer and seller, and not with ShootProof. ShootProof does not provide or guarantee any of the Products advertised or presented by sellers through our Services. As a buyer, you acknowledge that sellers submit orders for Products to the lab of their choice for print processing and fulfillment. ShootProof shall not, in any way, be liable for the quality and delivery of the ordered prints or Products purchased from a seller. Any disputes arising from the sale a buyer has with a seller for Products are between the buyer and the seller.
  • Fulfillment and Refunds. As a seller, you agree to fulfill orders and accept and process returns, refunds and adjustments in accordance with these Terms (including any Seller Agreement entered into for ShootProof Payments) at the time of the applicable order. It is your responsibility as a seller to fulfill a buyer's order placed for fulfillment within a reasonable time of the placement of the order. ShootProof shall notify the seller electronically of all orders placed within 24 hours. Buyers will pay sellers directly through the Services for all orders.
  • Product Return Policy. Seller and Buyer each acknowledge that the seller determines its own return policy for Products sold through the Services. ShootProof shall not be responsible for ensuring the return of any Products or enforcing any return policy of the seller.
  • License to Buyer. As a buyer, you acknowledges that Products purchased through the Services may be subject to a separate product license with the seller. All licenses are entered into by buyer at buyer’s own risk. The intellectual property of Products remains the sole property of the seller or the seller’s licensors. Buyer may not reproduce, scan, display, transmit, distribute or otherwise exploit the intellectual property of the Products, or any portion thereof, in any manner, including, without limitation, print or electronic reproduction, publication or any display of photographs, without the prior written consent of the seller or the seller’s licensors.

Seller Lab Fulfillment and Charges

As a sellers, you can use ShootProof Partner Labs to fulfill Product orders sold through the Services, or can self-fulfill orders with the lab of their choice outside of our Services. The cost for each ShootProof Partner Lab fulfilled item will be visible in a ShootProof Partner Lab price sheet, and as a seller you will have the ability to sell each such item to a buyer for any price that you choose. ShootProof reserves the right to adjust the prices in the ShootProof Partner Lab price sheet at any time with reasonable notice to you. It is your responsibility as a seller to adjust your own prices for each item in your price sheet(s) for sale to buyers. When a ShootProof Partner Lab is used to fulfill an order, the seller will be responsible for payment of the lab costs and any associated shipping for each order. The total lab cost (lab items and shipping, collectively “Lab Costs”) as noted in the ShootProof Partner Lab price sheet will be deducted by ShootProof from the total collected in the buyer’s applicable order. The Lab Costs will only be deducted from the seller’s ShootProof account (i) when the order has been confirmed by the seller to be sent to the ShootProof Partner Lab based on selecting 'Send to Lab' on the order page or (ii) based on the seller’s settings for ShootProof Partner Lab order submissions and approval. In the event that there is not enough money collected from the buyer’s applicable order to cover the Lab Costs, the seller will be charged the difference in the amount collected from the buyer for the applicable order and the Lab Costs associated with the order, and the seller authorizes ShootProof to use available funds from the seller’s ShootProof account to pay for the balance of the Lab Costs. If there are not enough funds in the ShootProof account to pay the balance of the Lab Costs, seller authorizes us to charge the seller’s credit card linked to the ShootProof account for the Lab Costs (plus any applicable credit card processing fee if ShootProof Payments is used for such charge). The charge will be visible to the seller in detail prior to confirming the order and submitting it to the ShootProof Partner Lab which will trigger the actual charge. All ShootProof Partner Labs are third party vendors. If you are a seller that is not completely satisfied with an item fulfilled through a ShootProof Partner Lab, please contact support@shootproof.com and complete a return request within forty-five (45) days of the fulfillment order. ShootProof, in its discretion, will reprint the item, or, refund your money. Please note that this return policy only applies to seller’s placing fulfillment orders, and does not apply to any transactions between a buyer and seller.
