)-- Upshot Commerce, a provider of on-demand, fully customizable ecommerce software solutions, announced the recent launch of PR Photos (prphotos.com), a subscription-based e-commerce site specializing in high quality press photos covering major entertainment, sports, news, fashion, corporate and feature events. Combining the services of top industry photographers and a staff of dedicated sales people makes PR Photos a leader in the Celebrity Stock Photo industry. Their easy to use subscription model makes them a valuable and reliable service for anyone in the public media industry.
“Maintaining a continuity sales model like the one PR Photos employs requires a built-in membership service that makes subscriptions simple for the retailer and the customer,” says Milanie Cleere, Chief Marketing Officer of Upshot Commerce. “The Upshot Commerce Membership Billing Service does just that.”
The Membership Billing Service provides the retailer with a high degree of automation, allowing subscriptions to be self-managed by customers. “PR Photos maintains a variety of monthly packages at an assortment of price breaks,” says Neal Kaiser, founder and CEO of Upshot Commerce. “Our Membership Billing Service allows PR Photos customers to easily sign up for whatever package they prefer and automatically bills them accordingly.”
The Membership Billing Service is ideal not only for subscription based sites, but also a variety of other continuing sales model sites that require recurring billing. “The extension is also perfect for ecommerce retailers maintaining standing orders, non-profit donations, conference registrations and storage sites, just to name a few,” says Derek Stringfellow, Chief Business Development Officer of Upshot Commerce. “Our extension really helps to take the hassle out of auto ship management.”
