    Free Membership Option

    Rating Average

    Printroom does offer a free membership option that still allows users to sell their images and receive commission checks. However, this type of membership comes with limited features. Those who wish to simply see how far they can take their online storefront before making a financial investment will likely be best served by a free membership. This is an option that is not always widely available, and helps potential paid members evaluate Printroom for free and still make some money on selling their prints.

    Commission Structure

    Rating Average

    Printroom takes 16 percent commission on all orders, which may alarm some digital photographers. However, it is important to note there are no other fees added, and that free members can avoid paying any additional fees.

    Documentation and Training

    Rating Average

    Printroom is a step ahead of some of its competitors by offering detailed tutorial videos on how to make the most of the site. The online documentation sections are also quite thorough. This unique combination of both video and text help should really aid customers in overcoming any potential learning curves.

    Account Manager

    Rating Average

    Printroom offers each member a personal account manager. Though this was not extensively tested, this is a service many other outlets do not offer. If it works as promised, then the personal attention and contact should really help digital photographers make the most out of their Printroom membership.

    The customer warranty on prints offered helps people feel more assured when making a purchase from Printroom.
