    I'm considering forking over $150 and setting up SmugMug.

    Do you people have success with SmugMug? Is it "worth it"? I mean, how do you promote it? What percentage of customers buy from Smugmug, and what percent prefer to order directly through you? Any advice?

    Should I fork over 150 for smugmug?

    I use Smugmug for the random shots at events and such. Its easy just put url on your card and hand out to those that want them and it will generate a few dollers. There is a 14 day free right now for the pro account so give it a 2 week try and judge for yourself. They will not even ask for your card for 2 weeks. :thumbup:

    Not really... unless your going to be selling thousands of prints. I use Photoreflect.com They charge a 15% gratuity to your orders, but other than that its free....so you only pay if people order. PM me if your interested and want more details.
