Selling Partner Vendor Fulfilled products

Note: This feature is exclusive to Pro and Advanced plan subscribers.

Zenfolio maintains partnerships with print labs around the world in order to integrate their products into the Zenfolio system.  This allows the photographer to offer their products for sale to their clients through their site.  When ordered, the system handles the order and payment collection, while the lab handles the order fulfillment.  The order is then shipped directly to the client by the lab.
