How long will it take for my Online Photo Solution to get setup? 

Once you sign up it should take around 24 to 48 business hours for Dakis to setup your MyDakis portal.  If you are building a full website with our Online Photo Solution integrated you should expect for the job to be completed within the next 30 days as long as you provide your project manager with the requested information, meaning website text and images.  You must price and activate your photo gifts and print formats.

If you simply signed on to the Online Photo Solutions without the website service you could be online and ready to receive orders within 72 hours, it’s entirely up to you.
