I have a web-site but just post links to a print on demand sites that people could buy my photos from. I'd like a smoother look and setup but don't know too much programming. I'm looking at fotomoto which is a free way to sell your photos from your site without much set up. Also looking at fineartamerica which for $30 a year you can easily add a shopping cart to your site. I'm not sure yet but am hoping for other options, please share what works for you. Thank you.

Unless you're 1) selling to a targeted audience (such as from an event) or 2) your photos are absolutely phenomenal, I think you'll find it's very difficult to sell random photos to random web users. I've only sold event photos, and even then sometimes it wasn't worth my time to do the event.

You might also want to ask on the Pro Digital Talk forum.

Thank you for the response. I have a few loyal fans and I sell a few things by posting on facebook. I know I won't sell multitudes but having a website is affordable and if it's simple for a visitor to purchase something and I only make a few dollars it's rewarding for me. I've just started using twitter and pinterest and you'd be surprised at the eyes it can put on your images.
