Late Friday night, SmugMug subscribers (including yours truly) got an email regarding a new pricing structure for Pro users. The former account options have been changed from Basic, Power and Pro to now Basic, Power, Portfolio and Business.
Essentially, the Pro account is split into Portfolio and Business. The key difference between the two new types of accounts is that the Business account allows you to set prices and make profits on prints purchased through your online account.
Previously, the Pro account, which allowed you to set prices and make profits on prints, was priced at $150 per year. Now, the Portfolio account is priced at $150 per year. The Business account is priced at $300 per year. Existing Pro users can renew for $250 for next year. [click to continue…]
