I am having a trial to see if I can make selling photos feasible through my website. Photobox allow me to upload photos to their site, and then to let me set the prices. I then don’t have to deal with printing or postage at all. They obviously take a cut, but the important thing is that it allows me to put photos up for sale without me spending long periods of time printing photos, stuffing evelopes etc etc….
For now I am doing it manually. If people want to buy the photos they need to e-mail me and tell me what photos they want, and then I will upload it to the photobox web site, and they can buy from there. I might be able to automate the process a bit more, as i can upload photos by e-mail, so i can configure a scrpit to do that, and then sort out the URLs, but that is going to take some testing. I can also get them to do most of the automation, but that requires a Ã¯Â¿Â½250 set up fee, and I have no idea if I will make anywhere near that much so I can’t justify it.
