    Okay, so here's the thing. I need a site where I could order photos with frames and ship the photos directly to the customer, but have the bill come to me.
    Any help, please?

    There are plenty of sites that can provide that type of service. I'm not sure about framing, but many of them offer many types of presentation....mounting, albums, etc.

    Many of them will also host your images, so that the client can go to that site and place their orders directly...you just upload the photos and then collect your money. They do take a significant cut of the profits though.

    There is a very good list of sites, somewhere around here...search around for it.
    Here is one to get you started...
