How is the lab paid?

When you have items directly fulfilled by our labs, ShootProof takes care of paying the lab. The funds to pay the lab either come from a portion of the sale, or by running your credit card on file at the time that you approve and submit the order to the lab.
 

U.S.-based Studios Using ShootProof Payments

We'll collect the money from your sale, and deduct what is owed to the lab for printing and shipping your order from your ShootProof profit balance. If your total sale amount is less than the amount owed to the lab and your total ShootProof Payments balance is less than the amount owed to the lab, your credit card will be charged for the total amount owed to the lab plus a credit card transaction fee (2.9% + $0.30), and the sale amount will go to your ShootProof Payments balance.

Note that for combined lab orders your credit card will be charged for the combined order, regardless of whether you are using ShootProof Payments (this helps to keep the accounting clean for all of the orders). There is one exception to this, if you have enough 'Available' profits from other sales, a portion of those available profits will be used to pay for the lab cost of the combined order.
