Frequently Asked Questions

You can use the search bar above photographersvendros.com to search for products or stores.

How are products searched?

To start your search, enter descriptive terms in the search bar. For example: "newborn suit" or "1-year-old baby crown".

Search results are ranked based on how relevant the products are to what you're looking for. You can change the order of your search results with the sort by option above the search results.

Here are a few tips to help you find items in PV:

Use multiple descriptive terms in a search to narrow down the results. For example: "digital background" will produce less, more specific results than just "background".

To exclude a term from your search, put a minus sign (-) in front of the word. For example: "red maternity dress" excludes all dresses tagged with "red".

How to search for vendors?

If you know the name of the supplier, enter the full name of the store in the search bar. You will be taken directly to the store. You can also use the store search page.

Entering this web address in the address bar of your browser will also take you to a store: https://photographersvendors.com/pages/seller-profile/vendorsname. Replace the "vendors name" with the name of the actual seller.

If you know the vendor's name, you can search for them using the search button.

Every store in the PV is independent. Store owners (or "vendors") are independent businesses that create or organize their own inventory and manage their own orders. If you have questions about a product you are interested in or a product you have recently purchased, the best person to ask is the vendor.

PV only provides a marketplace for vendors and buyers.

Shipping is one of the most important factors that customers look at when deciding whether to buy or not. For PV vendors, establishing an effective and competitive shipping strategy is an important part of running your online business. In order to load and sell products on PV, you must define at least one shipping method. You can choose the regions you want to receive orders from and do not. ZONE-SHIPPING method is used in PV.


Shipping Basics
The first step in formulating your shipping strategy is to review your entire shipping logistics. There are many options to consider, including carriers, pricing, and pick up, drop off, or delivery preferences.

As a PV supplier, you either ship your orders yourself or help fulfill them with a third party. You are responsible for ensuring that orders are sent to buyers.

When creating a shipping strategy:

Consider what shipping delivery options and timelines will work for you, your products, and your customers.
Create a workflow with expectations that you can easily meet even in high volume times. This includes determining realistic processing times for your products.
Gather the packaging and shipping materials such as boxes or envelopes.
Set up your shipping policies.
Set up your shipping profiles. (Zones)
Take regular time to fulfill orders, manage shipments, and update customers.

Fulfilling orders and shipping packages can be a time-consuming task, so it's important to consistently create a strategy that works well for you. There are several tools at PV that can help you streamline your shipping workflow, manage shipping options, and easily communicate with customers about shipment updates and arrivals.

After your store has opened and you have added the lists, you can add shipping profiles. With shipping profiles, you can use the same shipping settings for multiple lists and save time adding items to your store.

To create a shipping price:

In the Seller Portal, click Shipping and then Shipping Configuration. Here you will see 2 different cargo models. The first is FREE SHIPPING and the other is ZONE SHIPPING.
To configure the shipping zone, click Range Detail on the Action button on the right and click the ADD NEW RANGE button on the right side of the screen that appears.
On the page that opens, you can adjust the range settings according to PRICE or PRODUCT WEIGHT. After determining these intervals first, click the View Shipping button in the upper right corner.
By clicking Edit on the Actions button on the right, you can determine how much shipping fee you will apply to the intervals you have just set.

Your customers will be able to see the shipping price ranges you specify and even calculate the shipping amount while purchasing.

Setting competitive shipping rates
When setting shipping rates, it's important to consider how to be competitive and persuade buyers. High shipping prices can make customers less likely to buy. In fact, PV shoppers are 30% more likely to complete purchases when the item is shipped for free.

Once you've determined your shipping strategy, it's important to specify the policies on your store policies page. You can set this under the My Profile and My Account tab.

Tips for writing shipping policies:

List the carriers you use for shipping
Be clear about the delivery options available to shoppers
Be transparent about return shipping policies, if any. For example, indicate whether you or the recipient will pay for return shipping.

What if My Buyer's Package Is Lost?
If your buyer's package is lost in shipping, you have several options for providing great customer service that will help repair a negative experience:


Contact the buyer
Be sure to reply to your buyer's Messages regarding the status of the package.

If they are trying to locate the package at their local post office, provide them with any shipping documentation you may have to help them locate the item. 

If you open a claim with the shipping service, notify the buyer of any progress.

Open a claim
Contact the shipping service you used to ship the package and make a claim. This can help the shipping service find the package or compensate for the lost item so you can refund the buyer.


Send an exchange or refund
PV does not hold sellers responsible for items lost in cargo. However, if you can, consider sending a new item for the order or a refund. Sending an exchange or refund can provide customer satisfaction that can help your business be successful in the long run. In PV, shipping processes, return processes and exchange processes are organized by the sellers. PV does not have any responsibility for these matters.

Changing the Incorrect Shipping Address in the Order


If you moved and forgot to update your PV account or typed the wrong address, don't worry! Unless the new address is in a different country, you can change the correct address before your order is shipped.


If you have placed an order with an incorrect shipping address, first check that your order has not been shipped yet:

Click the Your PV Account icon.
You can view the Order History in your account.
On the right side of your order, you will see either Delivered or Not Sent:


My Order Has Not Been Sent Yet
If your item has not been shipped yet, you can contact the vendor to update your address on your order or to cancel your order. You can then reorder the products with the correct shipping address.

My order has already been sent
If your item has been shipped, check the vendor's policies to see if you can offer a replacement or refund. Each seller has their own policy on their store home page. Contact the vendor to request an exchange or refund.

You can also contact the shipping service to see if they can redirect the order.

If your package is missing, most shipping services require the sender to open a claim. In such a case, you may need to ask the seller to assist you.

Change shipping address during checkout
When paying on PV, you can update your address:

Add a product to your cart.
Click on the cart.
Choose how you will pay.
Click Continue with payment.
Sign in to your PV account if you haven't already.
Under the shipping address, check if the address you want your order to be sent to is correct. If not okay, click Change.
Select a shipping address or click Add address to enter a new address. Once you have the correct address, click send here.
Click Place your order.

Free Shipping Over a Certain Amount

In case you want to provide free shipping over a certain amount then you can set up the shipping ranges on the basis of price as below:

You can set the shipping ranges as 0-$100, $101-200, $201-300, and in the last shipping range, you can put any higher number like $301 to $5000000.

Then, you can put up the rates on these shipping ranges for states/countries

like 0-100$ shipping rate is $10.

101-200$ shipping rate is $20.

201-300$ shipping rate is $15.

$301 to $5000000 shipping rate is zero($0)

This way, if your product falls under $301 to $500000000 range then no shipping rates will be applied on your products.

This is how, FREE Shipping is set on products.
