    I'm sorry I know this has been asked before. At the moment I have a million tabs open trying to find what I'm looking for. Basically I am looking to create a website where I can have general infos and galleries and then a section where clients can see their images and order directly online. Here's the catch: I would like to set the prices and make a profit. If someone could help me out I would appreciate it. I just set up a smugmug account but I'm not sure if that's what I want. I've also looked into collages.net. I need something that has a designer built in (I don't know HTML). Also, if a client orders online, how does the money get to you? And do the prints come to you or straight to them? Thanks!

    I use Photocart. It's an application that is loaded right onto my web site. You can set your prices, layouts and about 100 other things...it's very customizable.

    The orders come to you, then you have to have them printed somewhere, send them out and collect the money. You can take cash/check/money order...or you can set up a Paypal account or set yourself up to take credit cards directly.

    I use photocart as well. I would like to be using IntotheDarkroom but I'm waiting for them to improve to where I can have more customizations like photocart. Eventually when they have that ability, I will switch.

    Hi,

    I am a web designer and have implemented many custom systems like this before. You tell me how you want your website to work and I can set it up exactly how you want. You can set your own prices/ sizes in the admin section, payment is taken through paypal or a range of other methods. Heres my website if you want a quote anyway:

    www.wemustdesign.com

    and a website I have just finished that has does the same as what you are asking:

    www.your-event-photography.co.uk
