Upgrade your account from a trial and then sign-up for AWS

The first you thing you need to do, is upgrade your Proofpix account from a trial.

Then sign-up for and Amazon AWS account.

In order to use your own Amazon AWS S3 bucket, you need to create it and provide us with permission to add/edit and delete your media in it.

Creating your bucket in AWS

Once you create this bucket in your AWS account, you will be billed directly by Amazon on a monthly basis. In most cases, your first year (up to 5GBs) are free.

Once the bucket has been created successfully, you should NEVER add, edit or delete anything directly as this may break our operations and cause your Proofpix site to malfunction. You should always use the Proofpix admin to manage your media within it.
