We have been monitoring the changes in phone use as it pertains to ordering photos online and there have been some significant increases in mobile ordering online. Our site has been mobile friendly for a long time but we wanted to bump up some of the functionality for mobile users.
Review your personal customers browser statistics
Photography is a niche business and amazingly within the niche of high volume photography there are many different clientele. That is why we have given you a feature that allows you to view the mobile usage stats on your site that show your website's personal ordering statistics by browser.
Simply go to: “Reporting/Browser info” in the back end blue menu bar to review your personal statistics.
You can see a breakdown of each type of device being used to order photos from your website. The statistics are based on actual orders not viewing.
"Globally since 11/28/2022 when we implemented this monitoring we see that 50.47% have ordered via iPhone and 7.09% via Android. So 57.56% of all orders have come from mobile phones. Obviously a very significant number."

Our latest update has been focused on more efficient image viewing on mobile devices, the cart and the favorites folder. Some of the major changes include:
