Frequently Asked Questions
These are the questions that we assume you’re going to ask us. If you have more, please post a comment below.
Q: Will there be a migration process like last time?
A: Nope, there is no difficult migration process this time around. If you decide to change to a new version 3 plan, the process will be simple and immediate. For most people, your existing photos, gallery layouts, blog and page content will all be retained in place. You may need to make some minor editing changes depending on the theme you choose, and if you have customised your site using more advanced HTML techniques you will probably need to tweak your code. Overall, the process should be quite seamless.
Q: When will Fotomerchant v3 be available?
A: Our development team are on the final stretch of development and are putting the finishing touches on the new admin interface, new responsive themes and new graphic reports. We’re reluctant to announce a specific date until we have thoroughly tested all the new features. We’re talking weeks rather than months…
Q: What do you mean by mobile optimised, how is this different to the current themes?
A: The current website templates are compatible for viewing on mobile devices but they are not optimised for the smaller screen size. From now on, all new website themes will be ‘responsive’, meaning that they will dynamically change in appearance to match the size of the device it is being viewed on. Your customers will be able to browse and buy from your website whether they are on a mobile, tablet or desktop.
Q: How many new themes will there be?
A: The plan is to launch version 3 with at least three new mobile responsive themes, and then at least one new theme per month, every month. We know how important it is for the modern photographer to adapt their style and design to reflect the changing nature of the market. With Fotomerchant version 3 you will be spoiled for new theme choices.
Q: Can I stay on version 2?
A: You will not be forced to change to the new version 3 – you can stay on your current plan for as long as you like. We will be releasing a limited set of new features for version 2 at the same time we release the newer version 3. We will detail these features when we get closer to the launch date. Moving forward, any extra themes and feature enhancements will be exclusive to version 3.
Q: Will prices be different?
A: Version 3 will bring new plans that are designed to reflect the different needs of professional photographers. Our pricing structure will be changing to reflect the needs of the modern photographer and our goal is to continue to offer exceptional value that is competitive and fair.
