Last year Shootproof offered Black Friday deals for all of it’s customer but appears there is only one for US customers this year? Are we not having an offer this year? I’m in Australia and have taken up the offer each year so it’s very disappointing not to see one this year….

Hi Lisa, Thank you for your interest and for being a valued Shootproof customer.  Unfortunately, this year, we do not have a Black Friday deal available for members outside of the US.

Wow- no black friday offers outside US?  That is very disappointing and creates a feeling of not being a valued customer.  What is the reasoning for not including non- US based customers?

I only see an offer on the plan I’m currently on (25k images). I can only choose to stay with that plan, and receive a discount for the next two years if I prepay. However, I wanted to actually upgrade my plan to the 50k images plan. So, is there no deal for me if I want to increase my plan? Is the deal only if I stay with my current plan? In previous years the deal was we could upgrade to a larger plan at a discount.

I was thinking the same... I was searching for black friday offer and was very disappointed to find that it was only for US customers.

Last year I upgraded with an interesting deal, and this year totally zero for non US customers :(

I am disappointed, too. We are with shootproof since 2017 and that is the first time without deals for ALL customers.

Did anyone thinking of switching to other providers ? Can you please share which other providers are you thinking? 

I was thinking of renewing my membership with black Friday deal but looks like Shoot proof does not care.

I was waiting until the black friday special as well to renew.  Now that there is no deal available for me I will have a look to see what options are available and if it is worth the effort of moving.  Other options include Pic-Time and Pixieset but I’m sure there are more.

So disappointing - you only need to see the above answers at how poor those outside of US think this behaviour is. I agree with many above, I’m seriously thinking of changing now. Targeting only your US customers and leaving the rest of the world out? That’s very poor business decision and could cost Shoot Proof a lot of money. This really makes me angry

As an Australian this is really disappointing. The 25K photo’s for $300 USD has just cost me $420 AUD, the yearly sales soften the exchange rate blow.

This implies that the US members are valued and the rest of us are simply not.
A ‘membership’ is generally meant to evoke a sense equality, not segregation.

Member since 2016, Belgium. Haven’t received an offer aswel (Belgium). My year just ran out, just in time for me to look out for maybe a better deal with another provider.

I’m in Canada. I was with another platform this time last year, but switched to ShootProof in the Spring. I heard how great the Black Friday sale was and have been waiting anxiously for it. I was super disappointed when it was announced that there was nothing being offered for international customers. 
 

I understand that some promotions might only be available to US customers based on company affiliations and shipping, etc. But to not offer anything (even a promo on plans as ShootProof did in the past) for international customers was very disappointing.

 

Many of us have been asking for better payment gateways, which have been offered now in the States, but there are still no plans to offer integrations like Stripe internationally. I genuinely doubt it was intentional, but the appearance of focusing solely on improvements and promos for National US-based users is certainly disappointing.
