PicThrive’s Smart Store is the next generation photo sales and marketing platform for pirate cruises.

After a cruise, guests are filled with excitement but often leave without buying photos. It’s not your fault, it’s just the nature of the game.


There may not be a convenient place for guests to purchase photos or retail space may not even be close to your dock. Your store may be too small for photo sales kiosks. There could be backlog of guests trying to buy photos and they may even over crowd your store, preventing or making it difficult for new guests to sign up. As a result, you’re unable to capture all photo sales and provide a positive guest experience.


To help solve this, you may try to sell photos while guests are on the boat. While this can work, what impact is it having on your guest experience? Do you think you can provide a better guest experience and reviews without this sales process being part of the cruise experience?


With PicThrive’s Smart Store, you can automatically sell photos to guests after they leave. It’s the easiest way for a pirate cruise to sell photos after a trip and boost its revenue.
