The Symbiostock download on WordPress is Symbiostock Lite - Symbiostock Lite is for basic use. Symbiostock Pro is a free, fuller plugin with much more features - to make full use of the Symbiostock plugin, please download Pro via the link below.

For all the advanced features, including custom watermarks, licensing, protected downloads and more, download the Symbiostock Pro upgrade for free!

Check out the Symbiostock demo site to see Symbiostock Pro in action.

Pro vs Lite

Symbiostock Lite is a WooCommerce extension that allows you to upload JPEGs that will automatically be watermarked and added to WooCommerce as a digital product. Once installed, you will see a new 'Upload Media' tab under your WooCommerce products header. Once uploaded, an image will be added as a digital product in draft mode, ready to be purchased and downloaded by customers.

Symbiostock Pro is a free upgrade to Lite that offers advanced licensing, image manipulation, and other features, including the option of uploading videos, illustrations and vectors, with optional agency distribution and more. Symbiostock Pro is a full application that allows both professionals and amateurs alike to easily upload and automate the entire management of their online media store. It also allows you to include your media in Symzio, the first contributor controlled agency.

Please remember that Symbiostock Lite products are not compatible with Symbiostock Pro, so it is advisable to upgrade to Pro right from the get-go.

Fully Automated

Once your WordPress site is online and Symbiostock has been installed, all you have to do is upload photos and Symbiostock does the rest. Licensing, pricing, even delivering protected content to customers is all done automatically and all you do is one-click upload.

Symbiostock Hosting

Perhaps one of the most powerful features provided with Symbiostock is the hosting service created by the developers themselves. As Symbiostock bridges that gap between website and photo/video software like Adobe Photoshop or Illustrator, it requires quite a bit of processing power which many web-hosts are unable to provide. Symbiostock Hosting provides high-end, cutting-edge hosting at competitive rates to eliminate any issues users may encounter with other hosts.

Symzio Integration

In addition to selling all your stuff on your own WordPress site, you can also become a Symzio contributor and all of your Symbiostock media will automatically be included and displayed for sale on Symzio.com. Symzio connects all member Symbiostock sites together to provide customers one simple front end where they can search all the hundreds of Symbiostock sites at once, and make purchases in real-time.
