What are Collections

Last Updated: Jan 08, 2019 01:59PM PST

Collections are used to control how your images are sold and shared in your store.

Collections give you the flexibility to do things like:

  • Make some images more expensive than others.
  • Set certain images as "Not for Sale".
  • Offer different selections of paper types based on the image.
  • Make some of your images available for licensing and others not.


Every new Fotomoto account comes with three basic Collections for you to use - "For Sale", "Share Only" and "Not For Sale". If you have certain images that you'd like to make available differently from the rest, you'll need to upgrade to a paid plan to add more Collections. Pro plan users can add two Collections, and Pro Plus subscribers can create an unlimited number of Collections.

If you're just getting started, check out our step-by-step instructions on how to set product and pricing options in your store.


Creating a New Collection

You can create as many Collections as your subscription plan allows.

  1. Click either of the "Add New Collection" buttons.
  2. Give the collection a meaningful name, such as "Expensive Fine Art Prints", then choose whether you want to copy the pricing from another collection and click the "Create Collection" button.
  3. Set up products for the new Collection as explained in 'Set up products in your store' above.
  4. Repeat as needed for each set of images that will be available differently from the others.
