Franchise Portal: Pixsy-Portal



Looking for a way to add value to your minilab network?
Pixsy Portal is a full turn-key solution which includes everything needed to start a nation-wide retail brand and successful independent franchise minilab network. It is ideal for minilab chains, networks of independent minilabs, distributors looking to add value to their product offerings, or any website portal owner that wants to expand into offering online photo products, all without the need for each individual minilab to invest in website setups, software, hardware etc.
Pixsy Portal sends the orders to partnering retail stores with minilabs. Depending on product-mix, it can also route orders to major wholesalers, gift providers, or any other fulfilment partner. Orders are delivered back to the store for the consumer to pick up, or shipped directly to the consumer’s home.
As portal owner, you select the products you want to offer for sale online and you decide who and under which conditions someone can become a portal “production” partner. Pixsy Portal will amplify your online sales tremendously and add value to your customers’ minilab investments.
