New Product Details Page: Shopping Simplified

Over the past several months our product team has been releasing features and improvements designed to make shopping on Zenfolio effortless for both you and your clients. We are pleased to announce the final major release of the New Shopping Experience with the introduction of the new Product Details Page.


When selecting a product to purchase, your client will now see all the information about that item on a single page. Previously, different product features—like size, price, and description— were shown in multiple pop-ups. This sometimes caused shoppers to get lost during the ever-important buying process, which increased the risk for lost sales. That risk is reduced with the new product page.  


You’ll also see product information organized in a modern, clean design that mirrors your site’s theme. Clients can still adjust the image crop from this page, and so much more. The photo your client has chosen is featured within the product they want to purchase. For example, if a client is buying a 20” x 30” Standout Display, the details page will show their photo in that product, with additional images showing other product views; in this case, an image showing the available colors and width of the trim.

The Product Details Page is rich with useful information:


  • For items larger than 5” x 7,” the Product Details Page includes a sizing chart that gives a scaled representation of how large an item appears when shown next to a human silhouette.


  • A drop-down tab on the item allows shoppers to see additional product information,or choose another item within the product subcategory without being sent to another page.


  • The Product Details Page is shareable, allowing clients to send a link to another person for review before making the final purchase.


The only way for you and your clients to see the new Product Details Page during checkout is to turn on the New Shopping Experience. On June 22, the New Shopping Experience will be enabled for all accounts that have a price list assigned to a photo or gallery. On this date, the option to turn off the NSE will no longer be available, so we encourage you to turn it on today to familiarize yourself with the new features and functionality. You can enable the New Shopping Experience by logging in to your Zenfolio account: from the Dashboard, click Turn On in the Zenbar located at the top of your screen.

Awful, awful change. Sales are way down since this was imposed - it's now much harder for clients to place orders for packages and I hate that they can't see all the options in one neat list, as I spent time setting that up and had got it working well over the past few years.

PLLEEEEEEASE give us the old system back as an option.

I loathe the New Shopping Experience. I have just been looking at several other Zenfolio Portfolios.....and they all look exactly the same other than the Home Page. WHY give us the option to customise our websites then take it all away ? The options to personalise the shopping experience are seriously limited. Not an improvement at all.

Zenfolio's new shopping experience has completely ruined the appearance of those sections of my website where I have images for sale. Why oh why have those Zenfolio IT guys done this??
The support at Zenfolio is great, but the shopping cart sucks, and is getting worse. First, the loss of the "fit" function a month or two ago, Now going to the shopping cart I get a spinning thing on the upper left that appears to select the photo that brought me to the cart. Below that is a picture of a guy and two kids. Not one of my photos, so have no idea what that is supposed to do. The human people symbols holding photos? Not a fan of that. Would rather see the prices all listed. People don't have time to click on each photo to see the price. Also, the default photo selected is an expensive $31 10x13. I would rather see none selected by default, or a low cost one at the least. I thought the default $31 was maybe photos in the shopping cart, which I cannot happen to find on the photo order page? To crop photo, additional button has to be pressed, going to another page, I could go on and on. Just overall do not find the shopping cart user friendly, and getting worse.

Does this apply to self-fulfilled products?
