The annual account fee covers the cost of setup, image storage and yearly maintenance of your account. By signing up for a Pro Gallery account, you agree to pay the fee for the one-year membership in the particular plan that you selected at the time you signed up. This fee is non-refundable and subject to the cancellation rights set forth below. If any taxes apply to your purchase of a Pro Gallery account, then you agree to pay such taxes. If you want to upgrade your plan type during your current year of membership, you can pay the difference between what you paid for your current plan and the higher priced plan. If you change to a plan with a lower price during your current year, you will not receive a refund of the difference in price of the plans.
How You Get Paid
The profits from your sales will be paid via direct deposit to your bank account within 30 days after the end of each month. Please note: If you reside outside of the US, we can direct deposit your revenue share into your foreign bank account as long as your bank accepts deposits in US dollars. Upon termination of your Pro Gallery account, the balance of any unpaid profits will be paid to you.
Here’s how we calculate your profits: For example: If you have a Premier account, your 8x10 wholesale price is $2.39. If you sell an 8x10 for $15.00, Shutterfly will send you $10.36 ($15.00 - $2.39 - $2.25 = $10.36).
You will be able to set the pricing for prints ordered through your Pro Gallery account. Print pricing cannot be set below the published Shutterfly list price. You can choose from a variety of pricing plans, each with its own discount level. All transactions are subject to a 15% transaction fee to handle order processing, monthly reporting, credit card transaction fees and accounting fees. Shipping and handling fees will be calculated based on Shutterfly’s published rates and will be paid by your customer. These fees are exempt from discount or reimbursement. Your customers will also be responsible for sales tax on any orders shipped within California, and any other state where sales tax may be required.
Updating and Maintaining Your Pro Gallery Account
You will be responsible for updating and maintaining your Pro Gallery account. This includes creating, maintaining and updating gallery pages, and creating and maintaining passwords (as desired).
Ordering and Shipping Confirmation Emails
Order and shipping confirmation emails will be sent to customers ordering from your Pro Gallery account, and a copy of the shipping confirmation email will be sent to you as the Pro Gallery owner.
Shutterfly offers an unconditional money-back guarantee to purchasers of products, and this guarantee will apply to Pro Gallery orders. In the event that one of your customers returns a product, you will be charged for any refunds that are issued. Shutterfly is only be responsible for costs associated with returns due to manufacturer defects, or printing or shipping errors caused by us or our agents. Shutterfly is not be responsible for returns due to poor image quality, cropping, enhancements, or other factors out of our control. For defective returns, Shutterfly will, at our discretion, either replace the order in question at no cost to you or your customer, or issue a refund to your customer. If a refund is issued for a defective return, the full amount refunded to the customer for such item will be deducted from your sales for the particular month.

You assume all liability for the content of any image in your Pro Gallery account. Anyone who submits an image to your Pro Gallery account is required by law to own the right to or obtain permission to use any image before the image is uploaded or printed at Shutterfly.

We will send you a renewal notice when it is time to re-enroll for another year of membership. If you do not re-enroll, your account will be terminated.
Storage or Hosting

You may cancel your account at any time after the first 30 days but you will not receive a refund of your account fee.
