There may not enough and is not further developed!

I am not satisfied! The support can not help and will continue to develop no improvement. All answers are so dare, so I'm not much wiser. Too Bad !!! There may not enough and is not further developed!

Ich bin nicht zufrieden! Der Support kann und nicht helfen und will auch keine Verbesserung weiterentwickeln. Alle Antworten sind so wage, so dass ich nicht viel klüger werde. Schade!!! Es kann zu wenig und wird nicht weiterentwickelt!

I left a lower rating earlier this week, but found help here on this forum. I'm not sure if all will be fixed, but in the meantime, I'd like to rate this higher on the fact that Thad, from Graph Paper Press, politely tried to offer help on this forum. Thanks again Thad.

Terrible
By , for WP 4.2.2

Hangs on uploads of images.

Absolutely useless for any serious photographer.

Support is non-existent.
Awaiting refund - I'll update when that has come / or not!

The plugin itself brilliant, the customer service even better!

I've been using Sell Media on a website I'm building (photofayre.uk) which sells stock photography in Cumbria.

This plugin is purpose built for this type of website, and they really have thought of everything with the extensions (watermark, commissions, etc.)

It makes possible something I simply could not have done with another plugin. And makes it so easy!

The main reason I'm writing this review however, is because my experience with the GPP's customer service has been nothing but amazing. Two technical issues were solved within hours; questions answered immediately. They've taken on board my gripes, fixed bugs in my site (and instantly put it into the latest update), and gone out of their way to ensure I can provide my own service.

A breath of fresh air to have a company caring about their customers like this. Can't recommend them enough.

excellent !!

Really sell media is a excellent plugin for photographers who who want to sell their photos online.

Poor support
By , for WP 3.9.2

On the face of it looks great and satisfies nearly every requirement for me BUT there are a number of bugs and I have been unsuccessful in getting support from the developers. One response and then silence despite making it plain I wanted to pay money for the addons.

A pity because the potential is there.

Awesome Plugin

I use this plug-in since the very first week of it existence. Remember, when you set up a shop than you kind of married to it. You have to spend many hours or days to do it. Since the beginning of this plug-in many others appeared, like woo plug-in for photographers.
Sell media did change a lot of stuff during its life but all the changes were chaotic and made by someone who has no experience in selling photographs (especially the sell prints extension). postage configuration, was changed at least 4 times each time applying completely different approach. And not even once having it done good.
After one of updetes, I started to receive empty sales reports. To find out what I have sold I have to go around to paypal and see details there.
For first few months I have lost around 600€ as the plugin didn't take my customers through the sale proces and stucked somewhere in between (some problems with selecting the country for shipping). Around 40-60% of my sales from this period were lost forever.
Maybe for creator it was just a bug (not the only one) but loosing this kind of money, for me wasn't funny.
If you want to play around than this plugin is good. I am serious photographer with two galleries in Spain and I definitely say that there are more options at the moment to choose from.
I lost the patience to it and just waiting for the end of summer when I will have more time.

Great plugin!
By , for WP 3.9.1

I cobbled together the Sell Media plugin with a Photocrati theme, and for the most part, the Sell Media plugin works like a champ. The guys are doing a great job of improving the plug-in all the time. There aren't a whole lot of choices out there to sell stock image downloads, and so far, this one has worked the best for me.

After an update, I sometimes have to make some minor changes to CSS, but that's a small price to pay to get feature improvements. Keep up the good work, guys!
