    I was wondering whether anyone has any experience of Payloadz or E-junkie as a way of collecting payment for the on-line sale of images that allows a direct customer download.

    I don't want to go down the route of manually sending image files or physical copies after a sale has been made for two reasons:-

    1. I am away from home a lot and am regularly without web access so can't be "minding the shop", and in any case,
    2. I am not anticipating a great deluge of sales and so would prefer to set up a system whereby the customer just pays and downloads and doesn't need me to do anything.

    If anyone has any experience of using either, or any other similar service I'd love to hear your views.

    Thanks

    Ewan

    You need the Imagefile - here - we've used them for the last few years and they are absolutely brilliant. They provide everything you'd want, inclusing the ability to skin so it looks like your own site.

    Thanks for the link. There's a lot to read so I'll spend some time pouring over what they offer but on first glance it looks good.

    Thanks.

    I use SmugMug - again, brilliant service and you can use Loxleys for print fulfilment and they don't come much better than them! LINK

    Thanks for that link. SmugMug and Imagefile appear to offer a different solution to the one I envisaged and one that I will consider. However, the idea I had was to sell from my own web site.

    Payloadz and E-Junkie provide html code that you can paste into your own site and manage your sales from there. Before I rule them both out I'd be interested to hear if anyone has any experience of this approach.

    Thanks for the advice so far.
