Selling Photos Online
This April will be two years that I have had my photo website set up on the internet.
It is something that has worked well for me, and I am glad I did it when I did, as now it has some age to it. I almost had decided to wait until we were sure it was the "right time" - but sometimes when you wait for that it never gets here.
When I first started out, I had no idea about websites, and the whole idea of trying to put one together was really intimidating. And I didn't have the resources to hire a web designer.
Since I have been selling on the internet for over 10 years, I was quite aware of the security that I would have to deal with, and once again, I knew nothing about setting it up correctly.
I decided to go with an established photo web host that offered secure shopping cart software for customers who would be purchasing my images.
All I had to do was upload my images and learn some css coding so I could design my website to my liking.
My host handles the secure payments, which makes it a breeze for my customers.
And I don't have the headaches of trying to keep it safe for them to do so.
I get to enjoy taking the photos!
