Welcome to Buyaphoto
Buyaphoto is a division of Advest Australia Pty Ltd, trading solely over the Internet, we have been in the online photo business for over 6 years. We offer specialty online digital photo printing services to the news media and associated industries by way of subcontracting work to photo labs in Australia and the United States. We use only labs with the highest quality digital machinery and staff.
We currently supply online digital photo printing services to a variety of corporate clients within Australia and overseas including Fairfax Community Newspapers, News Limited, Rural Press , Australasian Sporting Images and a host of small to medium independent photographers.
As a small company we are in the position to be able to give you personal service from staff that know what they are talking about. If you need help you will get it, If you have a good idea for a new feature that can be added to Buyaphoto we are more than happy to implement it ( normally within days instead of months ). Buyaphoto is not just our passion it is our livelihood just as photography may be yours.
Exposure is everything.
At Buyaphoto we want to make your images available to everyone, when you upload your images to buyaphoto you can not only display them in your own gallery section but we also have general categories, so that if you have sport photos they can also be displayed within the sport photos section of our gallery.
We will create the initial category for your organisation and then you are free to create as many sub categories as you wish, all you have to do is set your prices and upload the images to your selected categories.
Once your customers credit card is approved the site will automatically generate an email confirmation of the order for delivery to the customer, your organisation and also email our nearest partner photo lab with the high resolution images attached. The photo lab will then process the order and send it to the customers delivery address.
At the end of each month Buyaphoto will supply you with a report of sales for that month, all you need to do is check the report, generate a tax invoice and send it back to us. We will then pay you your part of the sale fee.

The success for the PrintMe button continues to please !
Romy has analysed the figures and has confirmed that the online orders have increased to 74% of total orders, up
from 47% for the Christmas and New Year period last year. As you know, one of our main strategies for Newsphotos
was to move as many customers to online ordering, allowing staff to focus on marketing projects.
The sales figures have also increased. We believe the staff's work on marketing projects has had a very positive
impact as well as the ability for us to be able to handle all sales because of the buy me button. Sales figures for the
same period last year (over Christmas and New Year) increased by 81%.
The reports generated by your system have also been very useful for working through the allocation payments and
best sellers' reports.
Thanks for your continued support with changes requested to add the extra product categories - this has given us
some great ideas for even more variations on the products, though we will wait for the improvements to the
metatags which will be implemented by our IT department in the next few months.
We look forward to continuing success!
Thanks and best regards,
