FOR SCHOOL PHOTOGRAPHERS
The answer to the question of how to calculate the price for a group or class. If there are 20 people in a class/group and you filmed 20 video interviews and photos, then the total cost of augmented reality per class will be: 20×2$ = 40$. Dividing this amount by the number of albums (for example, you will print 20pcs) $40 / 20pcs = $2, we get the cost of augmented reality for one album — $2 (that is, the cost of your album for each customer will increase by only $2 and at the same time there will be 20 live photos in each album) All photos on all albums will be tied to one QR code (just print it or paste it into each album)
