How to sell digital files at different prices and what is the benefit of doing so?
How to sell digital files at different rates? This is a question that the Arcadina team has been asking ourselves for a long time. Because we know that the more automated your online business is and the more sales options you have available to your customers, the more chances you will have to increase the profitability of your photo shoots.
During the past weeks, we have been working to offer you the possibility to sell your digital photos at different prices depending on the size and license chosen by your customers.
Because we know that depending on the occasion, it is neither fair nor profitable to have to offer the same product (digital file) at the same price for all sizes and types of customers.

Let’s give you an example so you can see more clearly the advantages of being able to sell digital files with different prices depending on the size and the chosen license.
Practical example of how to sell digital files by size and license
Let’s imagine you are a children’s photographer and you offer 2 packs within your newborn photos.
- Pack 1: a number of printed photos of the session is included. It is the most economical.
- Pack 2: this is a more complete package where you offer a photo album.
When a client hires one of these 2 packages, you will already have the session fully profitable. But the good thing comes just after closing the report because when the client enters your client area and see that you can buy comfortably and quickly:
- Digital files of the session (to share with the family).
- More paper copies for grandparents.
- Or even photographs printed in professional formats (Arcadina Labs) to decorate your home.
To focus on the new feature we’ve announced in this article (how to sell digital files in different sizes and licenses), let’s look at the digital files your customers can buy.
Clients who sign up for pack 1 (cheaper) will be able to buy the digital files at one price and clients who have opted for pack 2 will be able to buy the photos in digital format at a lower rate (because they have chosen your most complete package).
In this case, the 2 types of customers would be private license, but as you can see, you don’t have to sell your digital files always at the same price. And to implement this great option, you just have to create as many price lists as you consider necessary for your private client area and/or online store.
Below, we are going to leave you an article where we explain how to sell digital files in different sizes and licenses.
