Bulk shipping is currently only available for private galleries through Miller’s Lab.
Bulk shipping allows you to specify 1 location for all of the orders placed to be shipped. For example, if one of your organizations is a school requesting a gallery of class photos to be shipped to their location so they can be manually handed to children and parents, this would be the option to select.

Bulk Shipping Requirements
Bulk shipping is only available for private galleries. This is because PhotoDay needs the subject data provided in private galleries to help sort and package the orders.
The bulk shipping deadline must be within 30 days of the gallery's publish date. Once the gallery has been published with a bulk shipping deadline, the status of the gallery cannot be changed until the first deadline date has passed.
Since the bulk shipping deadline date can never be more than 30 days beyond publishing, if you wish to offer bulk shipping more than 30 days after publishing, you must create another job. This is because all auto-communication ends at 30 days (with the exception of any remaining AdvancePay texts).
There is a $15 total lab cost minimum when using the bulk shipping feature. If less than $15 total in product lab costs (for the whole bulk order) are ordered by the processing date, you will receive an invoice with the remaining balance. All invoices are due upon receipt.
Once the bulk shipping deadline has passed, the orders will be shipped overnight (excluding weekends). Please note that the job will automatically expire after the Deadline Date. If you wish to republish your gallery after it expires, you must enter a new Deadline Date or attach a Drop or Drop + Bulk price sheet.
