Haifa, Israel (PressExposure) October 27, 2008 -- ePassportPhoto.com, the leading online passport photo service, has provided over 2 million free passport photos to users around the globe. ePassportPhoto.com provides a unique system that allows users to upload photos and generate digital passport photo sheets meeting the specific requirements of over 60 passport issuing authorities.
ePassportPhoto.com is a truly global online service provider, able to provide passport photos according to the exact specifications for over 60 different countries. This includes ensuring the photos are of the exact size and resolution requirements, and that the subject is properly positioned in the photo. The process is incredibly simple; the user uploads a suitable image to ePassportPhoto.com, specifies which country the passport application is for, and a digital passport photo sheet is returned, matching that countryâs requirements exactly. ePassportPhoto.com is used not only for passports, but for any photo identification, ranging from immigration permits to student IDs and ski passes.
In the last year ePassportPhoto.com has seen year-over-year growth of more than 100% in visitors and revenues. Increased exposure has come about though online and offline marketing, word of mouth and the localization of the interface to eight languages. Fastest growing markets are within Europe, especially in Italy, France and Germany, where ePassportPhoto.com is achieving significant market penetration and acceptance.
In addition to providing a service for consumers, ePassportPhoto.com has started to market its white-label solution for companies wishing to enhance their photo ID applications. A recent example is the UK-based Boomerang student debit card ([http://www.boomerangprepaidcard.co.uk/]). Boomerang selected ePassportPhoto.com as a provider of ID photos, enabling students to complete the entire application process online. By avoiding the need to rely on standard mail to accept student photos, Boomerang was able to significantly streamline the approval process and dramatically reduce costs.
âIâm extremely excited about the full online experience our customers get with the ePassportPhoto.com photo engine,â said Andy Dagger, Managing Director at Boomerang. âOur customers get access to a proven and tested experience while we get the operational peace of mind.â
